This electric can opener scored the highest in every testing category, thereby earning The Best title from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute.

Unlike lesser models that dropped cans after opening, The Best model maintained its tight grip until the lever was disengaged. The Best model was the only opener with two guiding posts that consistently aligned the can, blade, and magnet, leading to a perfect score for ease of attachment. The activation lever removes and is dishwasher safe. 9 3/4" H x 4 1/2" Diam. (4 lbs.)

Purchased this as a Mother's Day gift for my 86 year old mother who could no longer open canned goods. Other electric openers failed to open cans, broke after a couple of uses and required more effort than my Mother's arthritic hands could handle. She says this is the best gift she ever received. So happy this can opener truly was as advertised, "The Worlds Best Can Opener".

This appliance is so pretty, but it is not worth the money. The opener doesn't hold the can in place, so after the can is open, it 'drops' to the counter and splatters and makes a mess. Also, the handle is flimsy and it comes off in my hand every time I lift it to put a new can in place. The opener makes the cut edges very rough and uneven and unsafe.

I use it to open cans (silly question).
I had ordered it for my Mother and Father. They are elderly and had been using a manual can opener. I did a lot of research and this seemed to be the best for the money. My Mother loves it, she said it fast, sturdy, does and excellent job taking the top off. She is very happy with the can opener and she is very hard to please.

It really is the best
By Big Italian Family
It opens even large cans without loosing its magnetic grip. Highly recommend
from Bensenville, IL
This can opener works EVERY time! It pierces the thickest steel can tops like they were warm butter.It cuts all the way around without dropping the can.When I lifted it out of the box I knew it would be a major improvement over the other ones I've tried because the opener was so heavy I knew it had to have more power.

We are just finishing a kitchen renovation. I could no longer use the old under the counter can opener we used to have but I didn't want to take up too much counter space. I saw this can opener in the store and immediately fell in love with it. It's an attractive product and it works well. The base is heavily weighted providing good stability. I have only just started using it but I'm very happy with this can opener's ease of use and it looks great in our new kitchen. No reason to try and hide this.

Held a 3 lb can, and easily opened the contents without falling over. This is a sleek and sturdy can opener that is quality made.

Simple, easy to clean, easy to use
from Lenexa, KS
I bought this as a gift for my parents, who are over 80 and have trouble with traditional can openers. They emailed me back: "Now we will not have to starve for not being able to open cans. Plus...it looks so fabulous." I would highly recommend it!
