I really like having an electric can opener that doesn't take up a lot of counter space or under-the-cabinet space. And since I make a lot of meals that require a lot of cans (broth, beans, tomatoes, etc.), using a hand-crank opener isn't a lot of fun.
It's opened every can I've given it without any trouble.
The not so good:
I've probably opened 50 cans with it so far, and it hasn't completely taken the top of of one yet. There's always about 1/4" of uncut metal, so I have to twist it back and forth till it breaks off. It's not terribly fast. If you're only opening one can, it's no big deal, but if you're making my world-famous black bean soup, you're looking at about a dozen cans. Unlike normal electric can openers that turn off when the sense the top is off, this one is simply based on a timer, and I think they've chosen a worst case scenario (one of those #10 6 lb cans), and you have to wait while it goes around the can twice.
I'm also not completely thrilled with taking the top rim off the can. For one thing, if you're planning on using up half a can of dog food, there's no rim to hold on those plastic tops that we use. Also, when I open a can of tuna fish, I generally push the top of the can down inside on top of the tuna to help drain it into the sink. Same for a few other canned goods like mushrooms. These lids still have the rim attached and won't fit into the can.
I also like to put the top of the can inside the empty can when I crush it and throw it away. Can't do that with these.
None of these complaints are enormous on their own, but all together, I don't think I'd recommend one.
Be sure to get the newer version. MANY, MANY, reports of the origonal version getting stuck on cans when the batteries went dead. This newer design offers access to the battery compartment even if they go dead while in the process of openeing a can (just make sure you always have fresh batteries in the house).
Used daily, we have opened countless cans since Christmas and no signs of battery wear yet. And YES it really does open the can with NO SHARP EDGES!! A major plus since my 5 year old uses it the most.
Oh! it doesn't come with batteries either.
Today I tried opening a larger can. I was pleased that I eventually got it started, but then it stopped. I tried for about 10 minutes to pry it off the can. Finally I got it off, but the can was almost ruined. I bought a manual can opener a couple of weeks ago. I guess I'll stick with that.
#2) Replaced with the exact same model. It barely worked and within a week it completely stopped. Unfortunately, I didn't have the receipt and so I just threw it away.
#3) Replaced it with the same model and kept the receipt. Same results. Took it back and got my money back.
Don't have time to try for #4.

Owned one for a long time, used it one day and the next day it simply stopped working. Changed batteries and it still does not work. Now it's in the trash can. Read morePublished 13 days ago by ByR
Well shoot, I was using the can opener wrong. When I first got it the magnet worked but I usually had to let it run around the can twice. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Terry the Cook
