A Manual Can Opener That Lasts!

WMF Profi Plus Safety Can Opener

I've been using this bit of German engineering weekly for about six months now. I used to get so irritated with manual can openers not working properly or breaking after a month of use. This one has lasted, and it's easy on the hands. It took a while for me to get the hang of it because it opens the outside rim edge of the can, and has to be placed onto the can horizontally. It glides around the can without much effort leaving no sharp edges. It was a bit expensive, but the price was worth it for a reliable can opener. It opens those big 6.5 pound cans effortlessly. I picked this one after reading customer reviews of various can openers, doing a bit of research on Amazon.

Oh, ja, WMF is one of the leading companies in Germany. They make good products.

Thank you Germany for saving my sanity and my wrists! ;) I was prying open skipped half opened cans with needle nose pliers until I got this one.

I have used a Swingaway can opener for at least 10 years and it still works beautifully. I am always telling someone how marvellous it is. If you ever need another one check them out!

I think one of my mother-in-laws (I have 2, one's a step) has one of those. She loves it. I keep saying I'm going to get one, but I have not gotten around to it yet.

I guess the new method is more efficient than your old one :-)!
