Note from Day Undefined:
Lisa compared four different models of can openers - two manual and two electric. Her favorite ended up being this electric can opener, because it was easier for her to use. But as we always say, what works for one person might not be right for another. Check out our can opener blog to weigh the pros and cons - and accessibility - of some different types.

Product Review by Lisa: (meet our team)
It turns out that it was always working, sometimes I just didn't realize it! The reason for me not realizing it was that I was having difficulty getting the lids off the cans (after using the can opener), but I figured out that I just had to squeeze the can a little bit to help the top pull off. I like this can opener because of the big turning part and also because there are no sharp edges once you are finished, and it is a reasonable price on Amazon (around US $25 when purchased).
The only reason that I don't like this can opener is because of my coordination. I have to figure out different movements to get the can opener on and then to get the lid off. And I think the plier movement [the pliers are recommended to use to pull the lid off after opening] is out of the question. At least for right now.
Unlike battery operated electric can openers, this one is manual. Depending on whether or not you want to spend money on batteries or depending on whether or not your hand strength and coordination are an issue, manual versus batteries can be a pro or a con.
