Very good heavy duty opener. Good value because it consistently opens cans easily and quickly and is a low price. A little heavy to hold if stored on a higher shelf; I have to use two hands to make sure I do not drop it. Performance Great can opener because it always catches the lip of the can to start opening easily. Easy to position a can to open quickly. The machine has a good weight to it so you aren't afraid it is going to tip over when using it. I wish it was made out of stainless steel rather than black material so it looked nicer and higher quality. I would not leave this out on my kitchen counter because of the black material and how it does not match my other stainless steel appliances which are very common now. Durability Thick plastic makes it very durable. Metal opener pieces are strong and resist scratches that can occur when putting a can up to the opener. Design Heavy base but not too heavy. Easy to use with big hands. Cord is long.
