I broke my wrist years ago and I am unable to use a manual can opener. We have purchased many name brand electric can openers in the past. Most fell apart in one way or the other, so to use the West Bend is wonderful. The 1st thing I noticed and loved is that you barely have to bring the handle down and it just grabs the can and off it goes doing what it is suppose to. It doesn't let go until you lift the handle and take the can off and yes it takes the lid off with the attached top magnet. This has been a God send for me I love it!!!!!

After fighting for two years with my old can opener I finally got this one and love it. So far it opens cans with no effort. I tried out the built in knife sharpener a couple times already and it works much better than the last knife sharpener I had. Highly recommend!

HASH(0xb6261798) out of 5 stars A Rare Gem:, Thoughtfully Designed, Functionally Flawless Nov. 10 2005
By R. Crane - Published on
Color: White Verified Purchase
Something interesting is going on in the world of designing electric can openers. Some of them are really beautiful to look at as well as fabulous to use. Some of them, like this West Bend model, remind one of the things found in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in NY where designs of every day modern things,like chairs and tea kettles are represented by the eptiome of the best, like a chair designed by Eames. Do not know if an electric can opener is in their collection, but would recommend that this one be included!

This can opener is very thoughtfully designed. It is as sleek as can be, and very compact. The cord is absolutely retractable and comes with a cover over the plug to protect it when retracted. Classy, eh? What a simple thoughtful little detail! The front of the can opener has a magnet that is also thoughtfully designed so that it folds down and grips the can opener itself when not in use, rather than sticking out and catching anything magnetic that passes by on the countertop. The aesthetic effect is eye catching.

As to operation, it works quickly and flawlessly. No struggling to get the opener to click on to the can top; it immediately fits into place. I used to spend more time with my old can opener fighting with it to accept the can, than it would have taken me to manually open it. What a pleasant difference with the West Bend! Have not used the knife sharpener or bottle opener yet.

It is so rare to find something like an electric can opener that offers much more than its function to the kitchen. The design should be award winning. Highly recommended.

HASH(0xa93b075c) out of 5 stars The Best Can Opener To Date Feb. 24 2007

Color: White Verified Purchase
It does seem crazy to get excited over a can opener, but over the years I've purchased so many "junk" can openers that I had gotten to the point of saying "a can opener is a can opener". But not so. This can opener is quiet. It opens all sorts of cans with ease, and on the FIRST attempt! There is no splattering or super jagged edges, and you can open larger cans easliy.

The design looks really clean and fits in great with any kitchen decor. This would make a great gift.

Throw out your old junky can opener-once you try this one you will be spoiled and will never want to go back!!!!

As I always do, I did lots of research on electric can openers before buying the West Bend. I have a manual side opening one made by ONO which is also great, but since I open at least 6 cans of dog food/day, I wanted to go electric.

It came out of the box ready to use. I read the instructions because that is my personality profile, but I think a monkey could have operated it. It was quick, quiet, and after using it for a couple of days I could use it blindfolded. The magnet picks up the top about 90% of the time and there are no sharp edges or loose shavings in the can. At least my dogs aren't complaining about them. Also you don't have to hold the can once it starts and it stops automatically too.

I figure it cut my feeding time by 50% ( I have 3 dogs).

BTW...I have used it on other cans and it has never failed to work perfectly. Frankly, I can't envision a better can opener, unless it worked by voice control. Buy it and buy it NOW. Don't waste any more of your time looking.

PS It also opens tall cans, has a bottle opener, a retractable cord, a knife sharpener and comes in a variety of nice colors. I chose red to brighten up the kitchen.

HASH(0xa9155e34) out of 5 stars Works Great and Attractive Too! April 18 2006
By Mixdplate - Published on
Color: Metallic
For a few years ago I had stopped purchasing electric can openers as I could never find one that work faithfully and/or just didn't have a nice appearance on the counter. After my boyfriend and I moved in together he insisted on an electric. So I did some research, read reviews, and gave this one a try. As I cook a good amount of Italian food, I use a lot of the large 28 oz. - 32 oz. cans of tomatoes. To my surprise not only did this can opener open these cans with ease, the magnet actually held the top of the cut lid, and held the can as well..look ma, no hands & no mess! So you don't have to stand there holding the can while it cuts and doesn't splatter the contents when it's done. I've had it 6 months now with no problems. It's easy to clean and it actually looks quite nice on the counter.

UPDATE: In my previous review I had given this can opener 4 stars primarily because, although I was very impressed with it, I had only had it 6 months. It had worked faithfully for approximately 5 years and could have been worthy of the 5th star, but then the little magnet broke off. Since overall, we had been happy with this can opener, I was glad to see it still available on Amazon and ordered a new one. The newer one was a slightly different shade of silver, which really didn't bother me, but it also had more plastic parts. The trim and the cutting mechanism that pops out for easy cleaning, consist of more silver coated plastic rather than the metal on the previous version. However, it has been over a year with this one and it still functions well. The only issue with this one is, it doesn't seem to like the paper labels around the cans. It scrunches up the label and jams. So I have to tear off at least the top portion of the label prior to using the can opener. Still a good can opener and will remain at 4 stars due to the lower quality in parts.

HASH(0xa918518c) out of 5 stars Good opener for the price Feb. 22 2007

Color: Black Verified Purchase
I tend to agree with most the reviews. The opener is smooth, quiet and opens cans effortlessly. It does what is advertises. The bottle opener and the manual knife sharpener are on the back of the unit, so you would have to turn it everytime you want to open a bottle which is a bit inconvenient. Most people would probably opt to use other tools for that anyway. The opener has a removable head unit for cleaning which is an excellent feature.

I did not give it 5 stars because of the finish. I got mine in black and the finish does NOT have a nice luster to it which makes the opener look a bit on the cheap side. If the metallic version fits in your kitchen color scheme, then I would recommend that finish over the black for sure.
