I purchased this as a Christmas present for my mother who has difficulty using hand held manual can openers. On taking it out of the box it felt sturdy and well made, however she quickly found this to be incorrect. The magnet arm that holds the can lid, which on first inspection appears to be metal, is in fact silver painted plastic and is very flimsy. After only a couple of uses the arm broke off rendering the can opener useless.
I do believe if Morphy Richards addressed this issue the can opener would be perfect, but until then i shall not be purchasing another can opener from this manufacturer.
