I LOVE this can opener. I have weak wrists which are very prone to tendonitis so the manual can openers are just too hard on my hands. I love that this really is one push if anhutton and it stops itself when it's done. The only problem I had with this can opener is not replacing/recharging the batteries frequently enough. I had one can opener die on me when the batteries ran down and there was no way I could get it to unlatch or to somehow slide the bottom off to replace the batteries. We had to destroy the can opener to get it off and buy another. But, it is so useful to me, and my kids, that we didn't hesitate to get another. My only suggestion would be to regularly replace the batteries or get rechargeable batteries and charge them regularly.
