What I am looking for in a can opener is:
2. Easy to use
3. No Bells and whistles (e.g. more stuff to break)
4. Something I don't think about when not using
This can opener ticks all the boxes. Its very much like a set I had for about 10 years which eventually died 4 or 5 years ago and I have been through at least one a year of different brands until these which are strong and I think will be long lasting.
