The "Chrome" is actually a heavy shiny plastic material that looks good with the shiny Black color. I like this Hamilton Beach Electric Can Opener, because the magnet is very strong and it actually holds the lid, plus it is taller, for bigger cans. It is heavier, weight wise, however, when I open a Pumpkin can, I had to keep my hand on the bottom, or it would tip over. It also cuts open the cans quickly, every time, and does not stop until the job is done, and is VERY easy to use with my arthritic hands! The cord is bit short. Since my outlet is right behind this can open, I love how I can push the excess cord back into the cord storage department. I have not tried the manual knife sharpener, and I do not see a bottle opener on it. It does come apart easily for cleaning, and noise level is fine, no louder than others I have used. Just wish this was an under-the-counter mount, like my old one was.
