I bought this to replace a worned metal turnkey opener and can't wait to open more cans with it! It's easy to use, not cumbersome at all and the ratchet motion is a breeze to open cans. Cans open smoothly with no jagged edges. For anyone with small hands or with arthritis, this is the best little opener. Just place it on the can, push down gently and then move the handle back and forth. No more fighting to turn a key or having the can not open all the way. I even use it on pop top cans. It's a great product!

I've been using this product for a year, and I don't use my electric opener any longer. The edge cut from this opener far exceeds any other I've used. I gave them out as Christmas presents and recieved rave reviews from everyone, young and old alike. Worth the money.

This can opener is the biggest piece of junk I've ever come across! If I could have given it no stars out of 5 I would have as even a 1 is being much too generous. Out of the package it looked nice, and worked for maybe 3 days - just long enough to lull me in to a false sense of security. After that it was nothing short of a battle to get it to work! It would latch on to the can, make noise as if it was actually working, but stay in the same place! I've honestly never been so aggravated by a simple kitchen tool before. You would have better luck with using a simple hammer and knife system to open your cans! SAVE YOUR MONEY and your sanity - or at the very least, your receipt because it WILL be going back!!

this is the biggest peice of junk i have ever spend my money on. If I could give it a zero rating, I would have. Not able to open one can with this product. After puncturing a can with the blade, the handle will just "ratchet" making a loud clicking noise and nothing moves, just makes a loud noise while the handle ratchets back and forth. Horrible horrible product.

While my husband had no problem using it, I had an issue getting it to stay latched to the can the whole time I was opening it. It was frustrating more than anything, and the ratchet part inside broke after only 6 months, so I would say this thing was a complete waste of money.

Can Opener didn't last. The mechanism that works the "ratchet" fell apart inside after just a couple months of use.

When I buy a gadget, whether it's for kitchen use, garage use or general entertainment, I expect it to do what it is supposed to do. This can opener failed in every detail. Imagine, a 12 dollar can opener that didn't last long enough to open one can! I know they "don't make 'em like they used to", but this is ridiculous. It made about two clicks of the ratchet then fell apart. If you are determined to spend over 10 dollars for something as mundane as a can opener, don't waste your money on this one. If you do, be sure to keep your receipt, you'll need it.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

After buying one of these ratchet can openers I was sold. It is so easy to use and much faster than the electric. I bought two others for our son's and daughter's families. It is great for kids to use, so easy to operate. I have also told others about it and they have bought too. My only complaint is you can't find them at all Wal-Mart stores. You can though go online and find out what stores have it in your area and then order it and pick it up at the store. Another great idea.

I was so excited to buy and bring home this item; I was completely let down!!!!! I couldn't get the opener to even grip the cans I was trying to opening. The instructions on the back flap were of no help at all and hey do not even match the instructions on the Wal-Mart website. If you get yours to work you have been blessed. I will be returning mine.

  • A. Unfortunately even with ten hands you couldn't get this can opener to properly open a can, it's a piece of junk! RUN from this product!! It's difficult to use as it is and would only be a source of added aggravation if you have a disability. The concept sounds great, and if you are lucky enough to actually get one of these products that truly works then you have hit the lottery. As it is, this item is junk, Junk, JUNK and you would just be better off saving your money!

  • A. No, you would have to hold on the the handle while ratcheting, so unless you wanted to use your mouth, chin, or something to ratchet, it would not be doable one handed.
