Product Description

With the revolutionary self-attaching design of our Auto Safety Lid Lifter, you are now able to open cans in a clean, safe and fun way.

With this handy red kitchen gadget you can take the strain out of opening cans. All you need to do is place the opener on the can and begin turning the comfortable knob. The ingenious tool automatically locks in place and the stainless steel mechanism cuts from the side leaving a completely smooth rim, not sharp or jagged. The tiny, strong jaws on the side of the opener remove the lid. Press down on the white button to close the jaws on the lid and when you are ready to drop the lid into the bin or recycling container, just release the button. So you don’t touch the food, the food doesn’t touch the opener and there’s no danger of contamination. You don’t even need to wash it after use as it never comes into contact with the food inside the can – you could go from opening dog food straight to a can of tuna.

To make sure you get the hang of it, there are full instructions on the packaging and a handy set of detachable instructions you can keep in the drawer for visitors.

Having struggled with cheap openers for years and constantly having to replace them, I decided to splash out and buy one of these. It works brilliantly and is very easy to use. I really like the fact that the tins have no sharp edges. At first I thought the little pincers were a waste of time as I was removing the lids by hand quite easily but now I use them all the time. I would highly recommend this opener.

When my trusty T****o can opener died I was broken hearted. I had had it for years and it uncomplainingly opened every type of can, always took the lid off cleanly and even bent the edges over so I didn't slice my fingers even left a little lip so I could pop the lid back on again). One day it just broke in my hands. I must have tried twenty different ones to try to replace it. Reading all the glowing reviews, Ithought this one was a worthy successor. How wrong I was! Hard to use, I finally mastered the knack only to watch it getting blunter and blunter over the months. Now only my husband can work it , using brute force and I am searching again!

A short demonstration and comparison of two can openers. The first one, the more traditional can opener that clamps on, cuts in as you apply pressure and tries to grip the can to turn it. And the second, the Kuhn Rikon. Place on the can, turn the handle, and it does cuts the can...

Don't try this at home ... well,.. do, if you want to open a can. :)

Like other reviews have said, this is an amazing can opener, but takes some getting used to. But it only took 2 cans for me to get the hang of it. I'm the type that believes she knows how to work any gadget straight out of the box without instructions and got tripped up on how to release the opener from the can. So from my experience, tips that might help you out:

- Just place the lid of the can between the 2 blades/gears until you feel resistance, like a normal can opener.
- Turn the handle clockwise until you no longer feel resistance. I didn't even worry about the handle being at a specific o'clock when I started like the instructions suggest.
- Then give the handle a quick counter-clockwise turn to release the can opener from the tin. This was the important step I missed without reading the instructions and just assumed I could lift it off once I finished going around the can.
- At this point you won't be able to lift the lid unless you have good strong nails. But, that's the whole point of having the mini-pliers on the side of the opener. Just place them over the lip of the can, press the white button to grip, lift up and Viola! Your can is open.

Seems like a lot of steps for a simple gadget, but it really is simple and faster than more traditional can openers once you get the hang of it.

Tips aside, this is the best can opener I've ever owned and I've had both manual and electric. And here's why:

- No sharp edges - as advertised - so I don't cut myself when emptying or washing the can for recycling like I used to. I even use it on pull-ring cans for this reason. My only advice is, even though it's rounded, it's still a thin piece of metal, so I still handle the cans with care.

This was bought as a replacement for one produced by another manufacturer and it is not as good. Whereas the previous one was able to open most tins this one is far more limited in the range of tins it can open. Seems to be heavily marketed as Swiss engineering but the one I bought was made in China.

easily the best can opener I've ever seen/used

for the price, highly recommended

### update
ok, so its 2 years on and the can opener is still going as good as the day I bought it, not a sign of a partially opened can in sight. Cannot understand any of the negative reviews.... baffling

This tin opener is simply the best I have ever owned. Forget all the other openers you are thinking about buying and get this one instead, it's brilliant!
