I was looking for a can opener that was tall, quiet, and in the color red, which my kitchen is decorated in and there was alot of options out there to choose from, but when i saw this can opener, my gut instinct told me to choose this one, even though it was higher priced than the others. I'm so glad that i stuck with my gut instinct on this one. This gas to be one of the best can openers ever, and i have owned many from cuisinart to black and decker. This is a heavy can opener, so there's no need to worry in a can tipping it over, It's really quiet, easy to clean and perfect for the taller cans to open. The red color is absolutely beautiful and i have had no problems with this can opener ever. I highly reccomend this to every one.
