This is a very nice can opener, but it's so much more than a tool to open cans. But lets talk about can opening first. It's tall enough to easily handle a 3 pound can of coffee or a tall can of juice without having to reposition the can opener. Did a clean cutting/opening job with all the differetn sized cans I tried. First best thing about this can opener is the blade part can be completely and easily removed from the base so it can be cleaned properly. Then it's a simple step to pop it back in place for more can opening chores. Second best thing is the retractable cord! Makes for far less mess of tangled appliance cords since it can be retracted back inside the base leaving only what is absolutley needed on the counter top. As I said above though, this is way more than a “can opener”. It also has a spot to open bottle caps. The kind that are on a single serving size of a bottle of soda or on a bottle of beer. Quite handy since I'm always losing the one I have and have to dig in a drawer to locate it. Now I'll have one handy right on the counter top! A “Knife” sharpening function is another great feature. Now it won't sharpen knives with serrated blades, but it does a very nice job on a carving knife, a paring knife, or a chopping knife. Probably not as good as a professional level sharpener would do but if your in the middle of preparing a meal and find you need a quick sharpen of your chopping knife, then it's right here and handy . If you are in need of a new electric can opener, this one is a great choice. I can without hesitation, highly recommend it.

Oster Retractable Cord Stainless Steel Can Opener
Oster Retractable Cord Stainless Steel Can Opener
Oster Retractable Cord Stainless Steel Can Opener is a great edition to anyone's kitchen. It would not matter if it was a stainless steel theme or not. This can opener can open cans of many different sizes and it also comes with a convenient to use knife sharpener. The Oster Retractable Cord Stainless Steel Can Opener is quiet and makes very little noise while in use. It holds on to the can during use and once the can is opened it will keep the lid of that can securely attached to the cutting part until you are ready to remove it and discard it safely. One of the fantastic features of this can opener is that you can start the can and you do not have to hold it or monitor it more than normal and when it is done it will stop on its own and hold the can securely for you to remove it from the unit. The can opener has a convenient place that allows you to store the cord of the unit. This will allow you to hide the cord out of sight and not all over the counter if you display you small appliances on your counter tops. This is a great unit with great power. I would recommend it to everyone.
Modern looking and works great!
With it's shiny stainless steel finish and black trim, this can opener really looks good in my kitchen, alongside my black refrigerator and stove. It's also very modern looking and will look nice in any kitchen. The first can I opened was a large 30 ounce can and the can opener worked just fine. It did take a couple of tries to get the lower edge of the can lip resting on top of the drive wheel. And it did take a little bit of manipulating so that I was certain that the cutting blade was on the inside of the can lip. But it's been several years since I've used an electric can opener, so that was my fault. The magnetic lid lifter held the lid and the cutting blade did a fine job without faltering. Even though the can was heavy, the can opener didn't fall over from the weight because it has a bit of a base or “lip” that sticks out in front. This Oster didn't tip and was nice and steady. I tried out the knife sharpener with an old knife that had gone pretty dull. It took a bit of getting used to the way I needed to “draw” the knife through the sharpener, but I managed to sharpen that old knife good enough to cut a piece of paper with no stuttering. In case you are wondering, the knife sharpener is not an electronic component, but rather a stone of sorts. The retractable cord is a little short at 26 inches to the tip of the prongs. So you need to decide how far you need to park your opener from an available outlet. The instructions for reeling in the cord says: “To retract the cord, carefully use the cord prongs to press the retraction button located on the back of the unit.” There's even a picture of the prong ends on the button showing you where to place them. You do need to kind of hang on to the plug to keep it from flying around. When I tried out the bottle opener, I wasn't sure at first how to place the bottle cap, but it only took a second or two for me to figure it out and it was pretty easy. It popped that cap right off with no problem what so ever! All in all, I would say that this is worth the money. Especially for someone who has problems holding a manual can opener, like me. This will really save wear and tear on my hands! I absolutely HIGHLY recommend this Oster Retractable Stainless Steel Can Opener!
Multi-purposed Can Opener
This can opener is well designed with us in mind. It is taller than many electric can openers on the market. That means, that you can open tall cans of juice or sauces without having to take the opener to the edge of the counter to hang over the edge. That is a blessing! The parts are easily assembled and disassembled for cleaning.....if you follow the directions and look at the graphics. Make a special mental note to yourself to carefully read the directions for the process of placing the can to be opened. The directions Tell you to be very careful here. I had to go back and read the directions more carefully. First try, the opener didn't work. Do not try to open the can from the bottom if the bottom is heavier. It won't work on heavier metal; but does a good cut on the thinner top. You really do have to make sure that the can is touching the gear wheel, and the inside of the cutting blade is inside of the can before you press down on the handle. I very much like the retractable cord. It really does retract. The bottle opener works very well. The knife sharpener gave 2 of my 60-year-old knives good edges. I really didn't expect that. I was able to slice right through a whole cantaloupe, while cutting it in half. I mean, one easy slice, and it was in half! I can recommend this can opener. It cuts a clean lid edge and really does hold the can in place until you remove it.
Very well designed
This can opener has all the best features. Its tall, so no problem with the larger cans. The blades cuts in such a way that the lid has little half moons, making it easy to remove the lid when you need to remove it with the can, such as to drain a can of tuna. The magnet is strong enough to hold the lid when you want it to. The blade is plenty sharp and seems to be of good quality steel. I have experienced no problems, even with the heavier metal cans. Because I have only been using this for about 2 weeks, I cannot say that the sharpness is going to last, but I can say that this appears to be much better made than many other brands that are available. I have not had an opportunity to use the bottle opener, but because it is tall, it looks like it will function very well, unlike a standard size can opener. The design is very nice. Stainless steel with black accents. Looks very nice on the counter. As far as electric can openers go, I have to rank this as a "buy".
I LOVE MY OPENER
opener is good and sturdier so buy one enjoy this product
This is a bad can opener but..
If you send me a replacement magnet part, I'd appreciate it. It broke within 30 seconds.
I bought this can opener about 3 weeks ago and it is the worst one I have ever used the can falls off and paper on the can peels and the can just turns blade doesn't really go down into the can to start opening it up magnet fell off and another piece fell off very disappointed
I havent even had this a year and only used it about a dozen times and now the motor wont even open the cans anymore
This is a piece of junk,the piece that holds the magnet already broke totally off.I have had many things from Oster and never have had a problem.I really like the look of the can opener.I was so disappointed when the can kept falling off.Every now and then it would work perfect but that would be after a struggle to get it going.
