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!
I sort of like the can opener, but the pointed end for opening tabs should be pointed the other direction...every time I open a can, it pocks me in the stomach. I have small hands and have arthritis in them, so it does take some "muscle" to get the cans open. I like the idea of no sharp edges on the can and no small metal filings. At first it was hard to figure out how to make it work, after a few tries, I finally figured it out.
I kept it after the second try
When I first got my can opener I did not like it at all, Than my husband tried and after the second try said don't go by the instructions they are wrong.
Don't put both metal circles on the can top leave the big circle or (wheel) on the outside edge of the can , I tried it, it works perfectly.
I was skeptical about this product but ordered it any way. I had just used my old can opener with much trouble and saw this presentation. When I received this I thought it was very pretty and read the directions on use. I then opened a can and found it is very easy to use and it really works. I had to open another can and thought it was so easy and fun. I wanted to open more cans. I am very happy with this purchase and opening cans is easy again.
I've had this can opener less than four months and today I will throw it out. The gears started slipping almost immediately, and now they are completely stripped. It's impossible to open any can. I've read several reviews and it looks like I'm not the only person who has had this problem. I'm going back to my old fashioned can opener.
I have purchased similar products in the past and returned them because I just couldn't get the hang of how they work. I'm not sure what is different about this one, but if you follow the directions EXACTLY it works like a charm! There definitely is a learning curve which may explain the bad reviews from some customers. Read the directions, read the directions, read the directions. Great product!
I love this tool! I had a drawer full of can openers that were hard to use and didn't work well at all. After using this little baby just once I was amazed by how easy it is to use and now it has that entire drawer to itself and the rest went in the garbage. Great product! My only wish is that more colors were available but I do really like the blue.
Works exactly as promised. You'll look for cans to open because it is so much fun. No mess, no fuss.
It is easy to use,does a great job. No sharp edges. Very versatile.
This is one great item. Actually it's the 2nd one I bought since I gave the first one to my son who recently moved into his own place. He needed an opener and liked the one I've had for some time, and asked to have it. I bought this newer version in the blue to match other items in my kitchen. Try it you'll LOVE IT!!!
Not all that great
I bought this can opener specifically because of it's supposed ability to open bottles as well as cans. Opens some bottles okay, but it pretty much useless for cans in my opinion.
