The Pampered Chef opener isn't "plasticy and fragile." Do you hear guys saying that Glocks are "plasticy and fragile" after they've run thousands of rounds through them over some years?

The Pampered Chef I own was purchased by my wife before I met her. So it's at least 17 years old. I'm sure we open 20 cans a month on average. Again, the best can opener by far out of any of the openers I've ever used. It will change your perspective on can openers. If it cost $100, it would be a good buy.

And if you've cut your fingers and your spatulas many times trying to get the stuff out of a can opened with a regular opener, you'll appreciate that there are no sharp edges, so you can re-use the cans for all sorts of stuff, and again, not have to worry about slicing your fingers (and neither will your wife, or your kids/grandkids).

Quak: I have tried them all - there is no such thing as a decent, long lived "can opener"!
Ditto's for butane fire starters.
I will now read through this thread to see if indeed there is such a thing as a good and long lived can opener.

My wife got me one of those. Supposed to cut the lid off with no sharp edges.

Sahe says " did you read the instructions?"

A Phoucing can opener shouldn't come with instructions...



I never saw it again...

My wife and I have an electric can opener that we got as newlyweds in ‘72. Still going strong.

There's probably some environmental regulation that says new can openers can only be made to work 25 % as well as old ones. Like our toilets you have to flush 3 times to get a 4 year old kids turd to go down, our washing machines that you have to run the laundry 3 times just to rinse the soap out, and our lawn mowers that you have to mow the yard from 2 different directions to get anything close to a decent cut.
