5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Can Opener in The World????? 27 July 2008
By Amstar
Verified Purchase
There is nothing to say about this product except wow. I have been using oxo peeler's for a few years now and when our can opener finally died we thought long and hard whether to spend nearly 10 on a can opener when you can get them for less than a 1. But i came to my senses and bought it. From the first use it has been a dream, it takes the top off a can first time every time no muss no fuss. You don't have to go around the can loads of times, and no jagged edges, and no effort at all to use. Its worth the extra cash to not have the mess or stress.

July 2012
I thought that i would let people know that this can opener is still going strong, it is used nearly every day (we have a fussy toddler who loves beans) and it is still as good as the first time we used it, I would still recommend it is well worth the money

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually Works! 17 Nov 2007
I have never owned an easy to use can opener until now. I have only used this twice - but the blade is sharp and you don't have to wrench it and twist it around the can to perhaps get half the lid off like the others. It is simply a doddle. Well done Oxo!!

This tin opener pierces the top of the tin not the side in case anyone wants to know. I much prefer a tin opener that pierces the top than the side personally. As with the rest of the positive reviews here, I found this tin opener amazing. It sliced through a tuna tin like butter. Yes it is pricey for a tin opener but the unbelievable speed and ease it affords is worth it if it is something your budget can stretch to. As for the negative reviews here...well it seems common on the internet that people will post negative comments just out of spite or simply because they can, but I would suggest the reader totally ignore the negative reviews here which seem to me to have no basis in reality regarding the product. Seriously. I bought this item despite the fears the negative reviews here inspired and I'm glad I did...it's an astonishing tin opener. I also had to risk buying it not knowing whether it would be a top piercer or side piercer, and I was relieved to find it was a top piercer. I noticed one reviewer complained about this saying they didn't like having to fish the lid out. Nonsense. You just press down lightly on one side of the now detached lid, it tips the other side of the lid up making it easy to grip and remove, and because the pierced edge is so clean because of the high quality of the tin opener, there are no jagged edges. I have always found side pierced tins to be one step away from A & E. Like I said, budget allowing, astonishing. Can't believe I am writing about a tin opener.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Opens Cans!!! 7 Oct 2010
By Jilly
It doesn't chew them up; it doesn't jam; it doesn't send them skidding across the worktop; it doesn't leave you swearing & fuming & yelling at your OH to help you open your peaches....

IT ACTUALLY JUST OPENS CANS!

8 is a small price to pay for a brilliant product that has restored sanity to my kitchen :)

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent 5 Nov 2010
Having bought about six cheap ones in the hope one would work for more than a week, this one was fantastic. It is easy to use and 'fastens' on with no effort, smoothly and easily cutting into the can- no jagged edges. Instead of taking ages I can now open a can in two seconds without having a tantrum.

5.0 out of 5 stars good for lefties 10 Jan 2009
I'm left handed and this can opener is the business. Can be used by righties too and is damn good quality. Very little effort needed to turn the ?handle - not sure if that is what it is called!!!- cleans easily and is very comfortable to the paw. Would recommend -worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Can Opener 28 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase
I bought 2 of these, 1 for my elderly mother and 1 for an elderly neighbor. Both of them suffer with arthritis and have tried various can openers including the automatic type, without success. They are both impressed with the quality speed and ease of use of this opener and commented how comfortable it is to use. And for not much more than the cost of a can opener from a supermarket, it is well worth the money. Highly recommended. *****

I never thought I would spend quite so much on a can opener, but I am glad I did. This is very comfortable to use and extremely effective - even for my left-handed husband.
