THIS IS THE BEST INVENTIONS EVER, I HAVE TRIED LOADS OF TIN OPENERS OVER THE YEARS BUT THIS ONE IS FABULOUS. EASY TO USE, HYGIENIC AND SAFE, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I had to go on wait list to get this can opener and it was well worth the wait. Substantial, well made item, as with all Kuhn Rikon products.
I have only opened two tins so far and it did seem as if it hadn't done the job, UNTIL I used the little metal gadget on the side which catches under the lid and lifts if off, no problem at all. No jagged edges and no missed bits. My other can openers have now been relegated to the bin and I am about to order another for my partner's work place and, maybe, another as a gift! Highly recommended.

Bought this "Kuhn Rikon Ultimate 5 in 1 Opener" awhile ago now and would never go back to my old style of tin opener as it is so wonderful and safe to use. I used to get bits of the paper label and bits of metal in the food with the other can openers, but not now. The ring pull is also so easy to use as well as the bottle opener. I have since bought my mother and my eldest son one, both of them think they are great. I am about to order two more, one for my other son and one for a very good friend. All the features do what they say but the best feature for me is the can opener. It is so hygienic and safe.
After opening several cans (because it is so safe, as there are no sharp edges to the can or the lid) I have washed the inside of them and made ladybird homes with them with my grandchildren. They have painted the outside of the cans to make them attractive and filled them with plant stems and straws to place in the garden. You could never do this with an ordinary tin opener, it would be far too dangerous. You can also use the empty can as a "safe" by placing the lid back and know body would know that it didn't have the original contents in it.
Such a wonderful product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sinfonia Doesn't work
Seems like a good multi-purpose concept but, like another reviewer, it doesn't open the can, it's main purpose. Tried three different types of cans - the opener rotated around the can but just didn't open. Shall have to return and revert back to my basic can opener.

Thrilled with this purchase from QVC. I had terrible trouble opening tins,bottles or jars but not anymore. This is the best tool I have bought for use in the kitchen for years.It really is a doddle to use, (I have hardly any grip at all in my hands) so now I don't have to ask my hubby or kids for help to do something like opening a can/jar ect.A great product for a really good price(I would have paid double) as it gives me a little bit of independence in the kitchen-priceless!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sweetpea42 No good for me
I had high hopes for this tin opener but, for some reason, the tins in my house just didnt open with it. I tried, my husband tried but apart from one tin.....it was just no good.

I ordered the black (as not available in green/lime) as I wanted a decent can opener really. I have all 5 openers as separates so to have an all in one takes up less room & it saves me rummaging through the drawer to find what I want.
Great can opener especially having the little pincers on the side to lift the lid off safely.
Overall a terrific kitchen gadget that I'd recommend very highly.
