Sleek stainless steel construction makes it durable, and the large, soft turning knob is easy to manage.

OXO Good Grips Locking Can Opener with Lid Catch
Features a magnet that lifts lids off for hands-free disposal and ensures that cut lids don’t fall into cans. A window in the Opener top allows you to quickly align the Opener to the lip of the can and lets you see slicing progress so you know when it’s come full circle.

Top Customer Reviews
Some have said you have to lift the lid by inserting your fingernail into the split in the solder seam, or by using needle-nose pliers, but that's not true, at least not on the lastest model. OXO actually has included a tiny set of metal pincers on the side of the can opener opposite the turning knob that engage as you move the handles together -- they do a fine job of gripping the edge of the lid so you can lift it away from the body of the can. (They're just not an obvious feature unless you happen to read the very tiny instruction brochure that comes with the can opener.)
As with all OXO "Good Grips" products, they've made this one ergonomic for ease of use, especially by people who have difficulty with their hands. The two handles you squeeze to get the can opener seated on the can lid are large and bulky enough to squeeze easily, with a rubbery feel that makes them non-slip. The knob or handle you turn is also large, bulky and rubbery so that it not only doesn't slip, it's easy to hold onto while you rotate it. Because the can opener is gear driven, it turns easily and smoothly as the can revolves.
I still have my old Swing-A-Way can opener that cuts the lid out, a gear driven model that I can't fault for its performance. I've kept it around because I'm sure there might be an odd can or two that the newfangled can opener won't handle, but so far that hasn't happened.Read more ›
The best features of this can opener are:
-Super Easy to turn handle, almost feels like nothing's happening but then pop! the lid is off! I think I gave a little yipe of surprise the first time I used it and my husband thought I'd cut my finger off! No way, I don't think you could cut yourself if you tried using this thing.
-The lid NEVER falls into the can, never again do you have to fish the lid of the can out of the soup or tomatoes, or peaches..
-Super sleek looking, super comfy to hold
-Little metal 'jaws' to pry the lid off the can
-NO SHARP EDGES, nothing to cut holes in your garbage sack, no little fingers getting cuts, it's great.
Do your hands a favor, buy this super easy to use super fabulous can opener. The amazon.com price is a steal for what they sell for in my local stores.
UPDATE: This can opener gradually stopped working, to the point it wouldn't open anything at all. Thanks so OXO's great customer service, I sent it back and received a brand new can opener of a different model that I requested, (the i-series)and love it even MORE than the original smooth edge one I had previously purchased. If you are unhappy with an OXO product, I recommend contacting their customer service to help you.
Because of the way this can opener works, not only do you get a clean cut, but you also get a very clean can opener. Food never leaks out onto the can opener blade. I've had it for about a year now and I haven't had to clean it once. I imagine this can opener will last for a very long time.
EDIT (6/30/2010): I was wrong. I've had this can opener for two and a half years now and it seems to be wearing out. I still haven't had to clean the opener, but it's not working as well anymore. I have to go around cans at least twice before I can pull the lid off, and even then, there's a lot of glue that stretches between the can and the lid as I pull the lid away.
Lasting just over 2 years actually isn't that bad. Regular can openers don't last very long for me either because the blade and gear start to rust and gunk up after a while. I'll probably stick with this smooth-edge/safety style of can opener but I might try a different, higher quality brand.
