Kuhn Rikon Ultimate Can Opener with Auto Attach Feature
LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
Before buying I went and read the customer reviews and even though there were very few bad reviews I was slightly unsure if I should purchase this or not. I saw it on TV, but let's face it, not everything works as great as it does on TV. Well, I decided to buy it and I was like a kid with a new toy when it arrived! It is amazing and I keep looking for things to open! Very first time using it, can opened with no problems at all. Highly recommend!
You know something is good when your mom approves! I walked into our kitchen last night and mom said "I just love this can opener! I am so glad you got it for me, it doesn't cause rough edges, I can turn it easily..." and then she demonstrated with a can of green beans. Made me happy to make her so happy with such a small thing.
Lightened the load.....
This little opener let me get rid of extra "helpers" I had in my drawer. Instead of 4 things I have one that does most everything. I loved the way it helped break the seal on a jar I was trying to open. Love this thing!!
Not as easy as it looked on TV
I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my 72 yr old grandmother who watched it on TV while it was being demonstrated and was excited at the ease of use. She has difficulty opening jars, pull taps, soda bottle tops, and if the power went out and her electric can opener was not able to be used, she wanted a back up. Watching it myself on line, showed how "easy" it is for everyone to use. Unfortunately, it was extremely difficult for my grandmother. She was unable to pull hard enough for the jar opener and the bottle opener. She tried to use the can opener and was unable to get 1/4 of the way around the can. The tab opener was the only thing she was able to use but she could already use a spoon handle to do that. Now, I know she is older and has lost some strength. I am 36 and in good health and I was also unable to open a jar or a bottle with this device. I was able to open a can of vegetables but it was very difficult to do so. My Pampered Chef handheld can opener works much more smoothly and has a much easier turn. If you are looking for ease or a good jar opener, this is not it.
I love this, great product. I have went through several can openers and they broke in wks. This is well made. Dont have to worry about bacteria getting in food from tops of cans. No sharp edges. Recommend to everyone. Get this!!!
Need better instructions
The opener is great for opening cans, but too hard to get opener off lid. I think it worked twice. They never had trouble getting lid off on TV.
I bought one of these can openers for myself and was soooo happy with it that I purchased one for my daughter. She is also is soooo happy with it. She said it was one of the best things I ever gave her! It's a versatile, easy, no mess tool.
I have had my can opener for over 4 years. I love it. I have arthritis in my hands and it helps a lot. But! My can opener is coming apart at the seam. I hold it very snugly. Also I have to go around quite a few times because it slips off the rim.
I have tried other openers and just couldn't master them or they were still difficult to use with my arthritis so my expectations were limited. I was pleasantly surprised how easy this was to use and I also love the feature for pull tabs.
No More Cutting my Fingers!!! Works Everytime!!
Soon after cutting my fingers with a traditional can opener, I saw this presented and immediately went to the website to read the reviews. Lets face it - you cannot believe everything you see presented works as well when you get it home. This one does! All the great reviews were the reason I purchased this item so I hope this will help anyone who is thinking about getting one if these. Money well spent. I had been using a similar "Pampered C" model but it did not always open each can. Sometimes it would get stuck and I was left with an un-openable item. The old traditional can opener was what I cut myself on, so it went in the trash. Thank goodness for this opener. It never misses and is so easy to use, especially if you have arthritis. I love it and will buy more for gifts! Thanks for a great item. No worries here.
This is a great opener once you figure out how to use it. The instructions are terrible.
