Manual Stainless Steel Can Opener
Anybody own a good one they can recommend? Sheesh. You wouldn't think it would be hard to find, but either the gears don't work well, the handles are made of plasitc or the cutting tool is zinc coated. I would like a straight forward, stainless steel cutting edge with metal handles.
I posed this question here about 5 months ago:
Those who posted in response offered good information, but I continue my search!
And while I continue my search, I am using a Swing-A-Way stainless can opener from long ago. Although it is tired, it seems to be better than anything newer that I have tried.
We ended up having a can emergency. Meaniing I bought a can, forgot to buy an opener and had to call my wife to grab one on the way home. We ended up with a Kitchen Aid. I don't know if it's stainless, it says to hand wash only, but it works just fine.
Thanks for all the feedback.
I recommend the Oxo Good Grips. It is well designed ergonomically. Its metal handles are covered with soft, grippy rubber and it has a large knob (plastic, though) that is easy to turn. We also have a West Bend electric can opener, but I find myself using the Oxo more often than not.
There are quite a few that are out there that don't cut but separate or unseal the can. My wife has one that she loves from Pampered Chef, one of their more reasonably priced gadgets. Chefs catalog usually has an offering and many can be found on eBay.
No cutters to get gunked up, stays very clean. Good luck.
