After a string of can openers breaking, I researched and found this one. It had great reviews and I thought it would last. It worked great. we've had it for about 2 years, and we've had no problems at all, but on Christmas Day, I needed to use it, and the metal part instead of allowing the piece that punctures the can go down, bent on contact with the can, and there was no way to repair or use it. I was stuck, and we finally unearthed a really bad old hand can opener, and had to struggle with that. I like this product. I just don't know why that happened suddenly with it. I guess I'd recommend it, but just watch how you use it. I don't really know how it bent, and it would have to be as I was preparing Christmas Dinner. I'm going to replace it, perhaps with the same one, as I have until now been very happy with it, but I might look at other models too. See what they have at my store. One thing, it is difficult for my small hands to pick up and move easily - have to use both hands. Design I guess.
