I never thought that I would be in the market for a new can opener, after I purchased my Farberware one. It broke on me after less than a year of use! I thought of several reasons, why that one didn't work out. From we just used it to much to I really didn't like that it left sharp edges. I stumbled across the Kuhn Rikon Auto Safety LidLifter
. I liked that it had color options and that it stated that it didn't leave sharp edges. I decided to pick on up. It is the perfect replacement! As it claims, it does not leave any sharp edges, so I do not have to worry about the dog grabbing an empty can from the trash can and carrying it around. It has "pinchers" to remove the lid, so there isn't a mess!
