Product Description

Color: White

The Zyliss Safe Edge Can Opener offers an innovative solution to a bothersome and often unsafe chore. It opens the can from the top and importantly, leaves no sharp edges on the lid or the can. It features a unique metal clamp on the front of the opener that attaches to the lid, easily removing the lid after opening. This insures the safest handling possible. The opener is hygienic because the cutting wheel never touches food. Like all tools in the Zyliss gadget line, the Safe Edge Can Opener is engineered to make its use comfortable and tireless. According to the Zyliss Product Development Team, "to become the consumer's choice, Zyliss differentiates itself from the competition in a value-added way. We conducted extensive human factor research to closely examine the demands of the task and created the Safe Edge Can Opener which offers a functionality that maximizes efficiency". Designed for right or left-handed use, the Safe Edge Can Opener is ergonomically adapted to body posture and the range of motion required so the user will feel as if the opener is an extension of his or her own hand. Dishwasher safe.

This is a revision of a review of this item that I posted on June 7, 2011. The Zyliss Safe Edge can opener operates in the same manner as a zipper operates in your clothing: unzipping the zipper does not slice a new swath through the garment’s fabric; instead opening the zipper just undoes the connection between two parts of the garment in the reverse of the manner that the zipper closed the garment in the first place. Similarly, the Zyliss Safe Edge can opener does not cut into the metal of a can that it opens — it just undoes the process that sealed the can at the cannery. At the time I wrote the original review, the “Product Description” of this Amazon listing INCORRECTLY claimed, “The Safe Edge Can Opener CUTS the seal where the lid and can meet. No more sharp edges! The hygienic CUTTING wheel never touches the food or leaves sharp edges on the can or lid.” Apparently the incorrect claim originally had described some *other* Zyliss brand can opener, and the description was copied to the description of this product in error. I started the June 7, 2011, version of this review by pointing out the error of that description.

At a cannery, a lidless can is filled with whatever. The lid, at that stage a separate piece that has a lip, is placed atop the filled can, then the lip of the lid and the top of the side of the can are rolled together and crimped to make an airtight seal. The great majority of can openers open the can by CUTTING the metal, either piercing the top of the can inside the crimp or slicing the top of the side of the can below the crimp; some of the side opening can openers also roll the edge after cutting to reduce the danger of the user cutting himself or herself on the can after opening it.

I have several products made by Zyliss and have found them to be excellent quality, but this Zyliss Safe Edge can opener is a great disappointment for both ease of use and safety. I have found cans vary in ease of opening, but some cans are very difficult to open with this. After going around three or four times, the lids still did not pry off, but I had to bend them to get the product out. A greater concern is that it leaves small filings of metal on the lid that fall into the pan when the contents of the can is poured out.

This is a great can opener!! I eyeballed it and it wasn't making sense to me how it would work, but I read the (simple) directions and it worked like a charm the first time. It was so easy and I love that it doesn't get messy with food/liquid from the can, the lid fits right back on (great for when I only use 1/2 a can of dog food!), it's light-weight, comfortable to used despite my arthritis, just a really good buy. I'm attaching some photos to help explain a bit how it works, since it can seem a bit confusing (I know I was confused!)
Pic #1 shows how the opener sits on the can.
Pic #2 shows how the the little 'grabbers' on the opener will grab the edge of the lid and take it off
Pic #3 show detail of the functioning parts of the can opener - the 2 small vertical nubs at the top are the lid grabbers for removal of the lid, and the large round thing at the bottom and the round thing just above it are the two things that turn to uncrimp the lid from the can so that they can be separated. I hope this helps answer your questions!

I will never go back to a traditional can opener. Instead of sharp edges and the chance that a dirty lid can fall into the can, this takes off the lid in one smooth piece. The first time you try it, you will not be sure if you actually opened the can because of where it cuts the can. This is safe for kids to use. I used to only use electric can openers, but hated the sharp edges. You can open your can just as quickly with this and tuck it away in a drawer. It seems that we have so many appliances on our countertops already, so no need to have a can opener there as well. I highly recommend this product. I am surprised it is not more mainstream by now!

I really like the edge type openers and will try to find another.

As others have mentioned, this can opener requires an extra step to get the lid off after it is opened. I found that to be a pain.

After 2 months of use, it has stopped opening cans for no apparent reason. I am thinking the blade has worn out already. This opened is going back.

As others have mentioned, this Zyliss can opener works in a completely different way than the traditional ones. If it bothers you to have to figure out and change how you do things, as is my wife, you don't want this. However, if you're interested in design and looking for a better opener, this is a great choice. I'll repeat what others have said but with a little different wording and description. I would say that the mechanism pries the entire lid off in the reverse of how it was put on. You lift the lid off intact, separated from the body of the can. The opener doesn't touch the food and there are no sharp edges. While it is dishwasher safe, this opener stays clean. Traditional openers cut through part of the can's top, leaving the lid's edge in place, whereas the Zyliss just takes off the whole lid.

Design and build are excellent: nice weight, good grips and easy to turn. I can't imagine that there is anything to wear out for many years.
