I bought this model years ago and am pleased to find it for sale. This can opener is tall enough to open tall cans. It has a removable cutting head so It can be scrubbed in hot, soapy dishwater, or even place in dishwasher. Just push the large black button on top and the entire cutting head pops off. The magnet holds heavy lids and its post is made of heavy metal. It won't break unless dropped, twisted off by hand or abused, so if you take care of it, the magnet should last a lifetime. This is a very good can opener. I recommend to buy.
