This Manual Can Opener from Room Essentials™ is designed to make opening cans a breeze for you. Featuring an easy-to-turn knob and a sharp blade that cuts through cans with ease, this black can opener is a must-have kitchen accessory. Grip handles allow you extra support to hold it firmly as you open food cans. The best part is, this can opener is dishwasher-safe so it's easy to clean and maintain like new!
I don't have a need for opening cans often, so I figured it would be a good idea to save money on a can opener --- not the best idea. This is definitely an item in which you get what you pay for. It sort of works, but it took some muscle to turn the handle once I attempted opening a can. I wouldn't recommend this can opener and am planning to buy a more expensive one.
Used it three times, i.e., to open three cans. On the start of the 4th can, it broke. My last manual can opener was my great-grandmothers and is about 100 years old. That one actually still works, but I gave it away. This one didn't last a full month.
I definitely should have taken the other reviews on this seriously, because this was ridiculous. I don't know if it's the angle of the circular blades or the sharpness of each blade, but it took me 10 minutes to open a can of salmon. First I did my preferred way of opening it from the top, and then I ended up trying to open it from the side (which to some is the proper way - basically, the whole top comes off rather than just the inner lid). Both ways were a struggle - I couldn't even finish the first way because it wouldn't cut into the lid properly. I have an old and rusty can opener from another brand that looks exactly like this, works the same way, and it glides easily across every can I've ever used it on. Since I ordered this online for order pickup in a different color, there was no return barcode, but I'll have to speak to Guest Services to see what I can do about this waste of $4, and buy a proper $10 one instead :/
