From the manufacturer
Open your cans/tins with hygiene in mind courtesy of the Auto Safety LidLifter from Kuhn Rikon. Once attached via the automatic, ‘lock-on’ mechanism, the opener removes lids without any contact whatsoever with the contents of the can/tin. It also prevents the all-too-common problem of lids falling into the can/tin. The device is safe to use as well as being hygienic: it doesn’t actually cut the metal, which ensures that unwanted sharp edges do not remain on either the can or the lid. After a full rotation around the lid - and a noticeable reduction in resistance - the can is open (and no more turning is required). To complete the job, simply lift the lid from the can using the mini-pliers/pincers.
The Deluxe Safety LidLifter is the perfect 7-inch kitchen tool for anyone tired of dodging the jagged edges of cans and lids. Unlike conventional openers, the Safety LidLifter cuts into a can below the rim of the lid, so there are no sharp edges, the blade never touches the food, and the final turn of the crank doesn't inconveniently drop the lid into the can's contents. The turning mechanism works smoothly for both right- and left-handers, and the soft turning knob provides a comfortable grip. Best of all, the cute puffin-beak-shaped lifting clamp means you never have to touch a lid. --Emily Bedard

This is not as expensive as the last one I bought. It's a can opener, folks, and it does a terrific job. Simple tool, but it's nice not to have to fiddle with it to get it to do its job. With the old one, I'd have to maybe go around the can twice to get a solid cut, and then really tug to get it to remove the lid. This operation is a smooth, once around the lid, and pops right off.
If you want something that works, this is the real deal.
Bonus: Don't use the whole can? -- just pop a recycled plastic container lid on the nice smooth can top and put it away for tomorrow.
On the handle it says Kuhn-Rikon, Switzerland but the opener packaging says made in China - just to be clear on the origins of the product. It is well made - as well as the Rosle, and the crank is large making it easy to use because you can generate a good deal more of torque. The negative - it is not near as compact as the Rosle - this Kuhn-Rikon opener is the size of a traditional can opener. It also works differently in some ways - The can opener sits flat on top of the can as opposed to hanging off the side of the can.
Refer to the picture of the instructions that I uploaded for this product to get a feel for how it works. From the standpoint of mechanism and size I give it a three - sure takes up more real estate in the draw. I hope the longevity is better than the Rosle - once I use it a bit more I will update/revise this review. After the Rosle broke I waited a while and then ended up ordering this from Amazon - in the interim I needed to open three cans of coconut milk and didn't have an opener - I rushed over to the dollar store and bought a traditional opener (for a buck), also made in China, that got the job done. Not sure how much value for money I am getting out of the $50+ I have now spent on high end can openers!!
