This is a can opener easily opens small to large cans very quietly. It is well made and looks great in any kitchen, especially if you have stainless steel appliances. Performance It easily opens small, large and tall cans with ease. I am amazed at how quiet it is compared to previous openers I've owned. It grabs the lid with the magnet and easily releases the can when lifting the handle. There is an automatic shutoff feature, built-in bottle opener and knife sharpener. The knife sharpener does a good job too. Durability Since this is a heavy weight opener, it is made better than the lighter/cheaper openers on the market today. I am very pleased with the job it does. Design I like this extra tall design for ease of opening large and tall cans. It has a comfortable handle that lifts and lowers gently, "bites" into the can on first try, securely holds the lid and easy to clean. it is slim with a knife sharpener & bottle opener conveniently located on the back. There is a built in cord storage and removable cutting accessory that is dishwasher safe.
