Default Kitchen stuff - manual can opener

what brand do you use- we had a kitchenair manual opener for years but the similar KA ones on amazon have a high percentage of bad reviews - maybe KA switched to a cheaper vendor?
or tinkered with the design?
companies do that - if it works they mess with it.
what brand MANUAL do you use.

odd the cutter wheel is not replaceable.

We've had good luck with the EZ-Duz-It. USA made.

Reviews are a mixed bag but I have no complaints with mine.

For normal size cans oxo makes one that doesn’t leave a sharp edge that works really well. Doesn’t handle huge cans very good, but every normal to medium sized work really well.

I researched this a few years back. Kuhn Rikon. It's the horizontal type that removes the lids with no sharp edges. Best one I've used and working great for several years now.

This is a newer design from ours, but it works well.

this is something you cant buy online. You have to look at it in person. I had 2 in my kitchen, one is junk and I threw it away xmas day (thats they only reason I am relying to this ridiculous thread) . The other is awesome, I have no idea the brand.

Oxo

Wife has RA/Neuopathy + other issues & she does not need my help - We've had it for years & still works like new

Founder of Oxo had a wife with disabilities & it was part of the company mantra to have comfortable well working simple tools

Works great.

This is THT. Hammer and a wood chisel! Anything else and you should turn in your man card.


Ive has a OXO for years and it’s worked the limited times I’ve needed it.

What self-respecting man would use a wood chisel for that?

Swing by any restaurant supply company and get a crank can opener. They make cheap flimsy ones and heavy duty. Get the heavy duty.

This is what we have in my house as well (older version). I thought it was gimmicky at first, but it works and has held up. The lids really do come off without any sharp edges.

We have this and it works great (older version as well). My one complaint is when I want to drain a can, specifically tuna I like to press the lid down to squeeze out the water and you can’t do that the way this cuts the lid off. Otherwise it’s great.
