Pampered Chef can opener is amazing gift, especially for people that struggle with hand strength and child safety! When my son was 1 1/2 I could not get a can of peaches open more than 1/3 with traditional old school so left on countertop- Apparently too close to edge . Never thinking safety issue! So since we were poor- tag team parenting- my husband was home with him at night. Well while my husband was cooking son reached up along counter holding on and somehow got his middle finger pad and almost to bone almost cut off- hanging by a thread! Made it much worse with weight and my husband trying to get son's Middle finger out of can. My husband rushed him to urgent care. Dr. On duty was a new plastic surgeon he repaired with 2 levels of stitches. The whole part of finger and pad turned almost black but they said it's fine he's getting blood in it. it will heal! Expensive! So we kept up with treatment although looked horrible and amazingly has all feeling in it. Well it came back almost normal never notice all feeling! He teaches and plays guitar for years. So I've always been worried since then. When I got this can opener! Amazing! No rough edges no cringing remembering horrible experience!! Highly recommend for poor hand strength and especially child safety! Kiddos can also get in garbage!
