Myra Binnicker: My 12 year old left-handed daughter has never been able to open a can with a regular can opener. We have tried and tried through the years. Many people told me I would be handicapping her to buy her left handed friendly items, but I finally gave in. She loves to cook, and this was a pain point for her. I read that this model was left-hand friendly, so I picked it up for her. She used it today, and she was so excited. "I opened a can without needing anyone! Dad, I opened a can without mom! I opened my first can!" I asked her if it was hard for her, and she said no, it was very easy. It was a nice clean cut, and the handle was nice and large for her hand. The only two things holding me back from a full five stars is that it felt a little flimsy next to my standard manual can opener. I am hoping it will last her through several years, but we will have to wait and see. It also shredded a bit of the label, which ended up in the food to be picked out. I guess that can be easily solved by peeling off the label before we open the can.
Patricia A. Clark: This can opener works sooo easily! I like manual can openers, but some of them are a pain to operate. This Good Grips opener works as good as the other Good Grips products that I have tried.
Patricia "A Reader": "Desprately Needing A Can-Opener", might be the title of a small household dilemma I was facing a few weeks ago. My electric can-opener, (Proctor-Silex Model No. 76370R -- which has since been replaced by Model No. 76370P -- which HAS to be a better machine), had broken. Good riddance, really, as it was really difficult to position a can to be cut by it, and,........... "once the can was opened / a little splash of any liquid / in / the can / would come / a final sting". (Nope -- four and twenty blackbirds NEVER popped out of this can opener...but using it sure did blacken my mood to use it.)I used it, however, because, after much frustration and many tries, it DID actually open cans. It had cost me some money at the local supermarket, and I guess it didn't start "spitting out" until the warranty period was over. But, it was with pure ecxtacy that I noted this troublesome can-opener, (which I felt had somehow developed a "Lindsay Lohan Complex"), had -- and without my doing a thing to hasten it's demise -- finally broken beyond repair....My next step was to buy a MANUAL can opener from Amazon, (because you never can know what Osama's comrades-in-arms, or OTHER enemies of freedom might one day to to the Western World's supply of electrictiy, etc. I'm a native New York Citier who was living IN NYC, (Queens), when 9/11 occured. and -- as I'm of a Libertarian mindset in any event -- take calamity preparation VERY seriously.THIS can-opener, the TUPPERWARE SERIES-E design, (cheaper model), came with it's own problem -- amd, (believe it or not), was worse than the Proctor-Silex electric can opener. Because the Tuperware Series-E, manuel design, (cheaper model) -- though it went around any can effortlessly -- just would NOT CUT any cans!Well, two weeks without a can-opener is like two days without electricity! (Grrrr!) Finally, a friend of mine recommended the OXO GOOD GRIPS CAN OPENER WITH BOTTLE OPENER. Oxo Good Grips! WHY hadn't I thought of that brand before -- like, maybe, before I had bought the Proctor-Silex? Or at LEAST before buying the Tupperware Series E? Anyway, I finally deciding that the old adage, "late is better than never" is right, yet again, I gave her my money, and told her to bring me the can-opener.The OXO GOOD GRIPS CAN OPENER WITH BOTTLE OPENER worked wonderfully! Simply open the can opener's legs, place the gears between the can's rim, press down with moderate strength until you make a dent INTO the rim -- and turn. The turning is almost effortless, and the top comes off smoothly, with hardly a ripple in the metal.The "legs" of this OXO GOOD GRIPS can-opener, as in all OXO GOOD GRIPS products, have a nice rubber sheathing, making it easier to grasp the can opener. If, for some reason, you want to separately wash these rubberized "legs", (if you get them stained, for instance), they can -- with a bit of effort -- actually slide off, revealing strong metal handles, that provide the base for the rubberized grip.The nice and LARGE, semi-circular "turning handle", is pretty to look at and easy to use. It also can, (if desired), give something of a history lesson, to people who have a mind for these things. Holding the closed can-opener SIDEWAYS, and having the semi-circular handle at the TOP, and at it's WIDEST angle, an illusion of the hat, (and head), of none other than Napoleon Bonaparte comes into view! Turn the handle so that you see the handle at it's NARROWEST view -- and up pops an illusion of the hat -- and head -- of Admiral Nelson, (of all people!) Well, something VERY CLOSE to the way Admiral Nelson's hat and head looked, anyway. This "close-to" view of Admiral Nelson can ALSE be seen, (especially if you tilt the can opener slightly upward), as a possible futuristic army helmet -- which looks like the present US Army helmet, only much, much narrower.Turn the can opener around, and have the handle at the BOTTOM, (with the handle again at its WIDEST angle), and you have a nice illusion of a dancer -- her hat, head, and ruffled neckline on top, (the gears), and her wide skirt, (the handle), at the bottom.The nicest illusion, however, is when you look at the gears themselves, when the can-opener is, again, in a CLOSED position. They happily resemble, (somewhat), the opening drawing in the delightful Disney Little Golden Book, "ONCE UPON A WINTERTIME", (for which I have also written a review for Amazon.) On that firstpage, the heroine, "Jenny", and the hero, "Joe" are both seen in side-by-side picture-frames. Jenny is coming out of her frame, to give a kiss to Joe. So, too, does opening and closing the gears of this can-opener, and looking closely at the gears, give the same "kissing effect" illusion! : )The only thing bad about this can-opener I can say, is to repeat the caveat given by other reviewers. Although I haven't had my can-opener long enough to know, they say that, repeated use, the gears can get rusty after a year or so. I trust other Amazon reviewers -- especially those who write with such earnestness as these people do. So -- I think I'll carefully rinse, (and dry!), my OXO GOOD GRIPS CAN OPENER WITH BOTTLE-OPENER, after each use, from now on. My suggestion here is tht you do the same.
Patricia H. Stevenson "Stevenson": OXO Soft-Handled Can Opener, Item # 28081. This is a hard-to-clean kitchen tool. Not all the metal parts are stainless so they get pitted and retain food particles. Also, the soft handles are not sealed onto the body of the can opener, so dishwater accumulates in them, and therefore so do rotting food particles, mold... you get the point. It is possible to pull off the handles and wash all the surfaces, but what a pain! And then, the handles wear and loosen so they start to slide when opening cans. After three months, I replaced the Oxo Good Grips Can Opener with aZyliss Lock-n-Lift Can Openerwhich, after six months, still works very well.
Paula: This was recommended by America's Test Kitchen and I just love it. It is very easy to use with no stain your hands. I have used it for years and it is still working GREAT.
