COuld not use it as to now, since Christmas!

My wife received this so-called "opener" at Christmas 2023. So far, we tried to use it 5 times, and had to return to our previous opener that we wanted to replace because not functionning properly. Mind you, we could open the cans while the new one did not do the job.
It was bought at Canadian Tire in Laval, but of course, being a Christmas gift, the person who bought it (our son) no longer has the invoice.
I will find out very soon how good the garanty is. But I would definitly not recommend it.
(PS: I do have a Triangle Credit Card from Canadian Tire. For now.)

Total disappointment

Had this can opener for under 3 months and already the spring or whatever is inside has popped out and we've barely used it 10 times.

Works well

Works as expected. SO far so good.

Fails Quickly

It worked great for about a month. I prefer this style of can opener as it truly doesnt produce any sharp edges, and I had a similar one for a decade before it failed. I was thrilled when I found this can opener, and was very happy with the way it worked. Then the gears started slipping on more and more cans. It either doesnt cut or doesnt rotate around the cans, creating a mess thats even harder to open with a traditional can opener. It seems to only work on cans of a small diameter at the moment.

Put it back on the shelf and walk away!

I bought this cuz I love cool looking gadgets and innovations. I was mistaken. I have never had a more dysfunctional can opener than this. Do not buy. It does not cut the lids properly you cannot open the can after and if you do you're going to get metal slivers or sliced fingers. Go for the traditional and keep your skin intact.
