Purchased three of these before. One for myself, one for my son. And was given one as a gift. My mother knew I needed one so she purchased one for us for Christmas last year. Just a coincidance that it was the same one I was throwing out. ( the price being low makes it popular.) That is why I bought my son one when I purchased mine. He also threw this out. All three have been replaced. It is hard to get it to work correctly. Performance Very poor performance. The can opener is hard to line up with the cans most of the time. It can be very frustrating. I had to grab my hand held can opener several times because it wouldn't work. Large cans were worse. Anyway, my overall experience with this product was very disheartening to say the least Durability Did not keep it long enough to know how durable it would be.. But in my opinion, it seemed a cheap plastic over it. Design In my opinion, it looks good. But that doesn't help the performance. It should have been designed with a sharper blade too.
