Baby Toddler Grid Flounced Velcro Closure Sandals Review
A. Ryan "Merribelle": The Kuhn Rikon can opener is a durable, quality-contstructed kitchen tool that I wouldn't be without now that I've had mine for a few months. How cool is it that you can now open that can of tuna and not risk cutting yourself on the jagged edge? Better yet, when my kids are old enough to start opening their own cans of Spaghettios, I know it will be safe for them (hey, they don't eat those all the time, but, you know...).This was my first time trying a "safe" can opener, so at first I couldn't get the hang of lining it up the can lid with it properly. After only a few tries, though, it became second nature. The little "beak" on the side of the device that grasps the lid for removal when you are done cutting can be a little awkward to maneuver into position as well. Do what I do: save time by pulling apart the lid from the body with your two hands instead.-Andrea, aka Merribelle
Barbara Raley: The BEST can opener ever. I don't like electrics and have tried many hand models - this one is a real winner...get yourself one. You will be SO glad you did ;~))
Charlie S.: Nice opener--does the job. It is easy to put on and take off. Leaves nice smooth edge. Light weight but durable.
I. Seligman: I've enjoyed my similar Oxo "side seam opening type" can opener, that also leaves no sharp edges, for a year or so, and the only thing I didn't like was the way it couldn't open rectangular cans. This was because it's side-mounted handle would hit the can, and stop the entire opening process till it was restarted an inch or so away from the corner. A pain with rectangular cans.I saw this Kuhn Rikon safety one, and it had it's handle on the top, not the side...Bought it, tried it on several cans, and it's the easiest one to open cans!It opens along the seam, rather than actually cutting, and at first, after "going round" the top of a can, it doesn't look any different. Then, grip the top edge of the can with the side "pliers" on the can opener, and the entire top lid comes off! If you are so inclined, you can easily put the top back on, and it stays!This is easy on the hands, light weight, and seems to open easily any can I offer to it! It's not the best for left handed people, if they can twist the handle with their right hand, and hold the opener with their left, then it's no problem.Very safe for kids, as it doesn't leave sharp or ragged edges as with the can openers that have been around for over 30 years.I'm giving my Oxo opener to Salvation Army!
Jack Beery: We own the slightly more expensive version of this can opener; at the time we purchased it, this was the only model available.My wife and I find this to be the best can opener we have ever used; we even use it to open cans that have lift top lids (such as Del Monte canned sliced peaches). Why this can opener is so good is because of how it works and the quality of the product. It is made like a Swiss watch; there is no slop in the movement.It is different than a traditional can opener which you place along the side of the can top and it cuts off the top. This can opener you place on top of the can and it separates the top of the can from the can cylinder. Contrary to the language used in the Amazon review, the can opener does not depend on cutting. The Kuhn Rikon Safety Lid Lifter depends on breaking the seal between the lid and the can.The knob that you turn rotates a knurled wheel. When pinched on a can, it is forced into contact with the inside edge of the can lid. The wheel of the can opener that is on the outside is set at a slight angle that causes a lifting action to break the bond between the can and the lid.Initially, you turn the knob clockwise. When the opener has gone completely around the top of the can and you detect a drop in force, you then turn the knob counter-clockwise and the lid lifts away from the can. Typically, there are no sharp edges because nothing has been cut.Because of my fascination with this can opener, I have examined a lot of cans that were opened with this opener. Only one time I found a sharp point that must have occurred when the lid did not properly separate from the cylinder.It takes getting used to:When you place the can opener on top of the can, it must lay flat. Once you get used to it, you automatically push down lightly on the turning knob as you close the grips. This assures that the can opener is laying flat on top of the can.The drawbacks:There are some cans that this opener will not open but these are few.I notice in some reviews people talk about sliver pieces and I have seen this. What I believe they see is a small particle of the glue ring that seals the top of the can to the cylinder in the assembly process.The can opener is designed for use by right-handed people. To operate this opener, you need to be able to position the can opener on the can with your left hand and hold it there while turning the knob with your right hand. If you can't do that, you probably don't want this can opener.
