Handy Can Opener Reviews

“Handy Can Opener only works on small cans and most of them have pull tops.”

“Handy Can Opener doesn’t work. Did the first can okay, but wouldn’t even do the second can. Hangs part way through and turning the wheel either way (following instructions) might cause it to start briefly, not finish and also doesn’t cause it to unhook. Have to tear it loose. Disappointed with the Handy Can Opener.”

“Handy Can Opener barely works even with new batteries and can hardly open a can. One touch works about half way and you spend the next 30 minutes trying to get it to finish or to release the can. Have tried both openers on at least 5 cans and haven’t got a can to open smoothly.”

“Followed the manufacturer’s instructions, and the Handy Can Opener wouldn’t release the lid. Do not buy the Handy Can Opener.”

  1. Purchased opener which worked on perhaps 3-4 cans then it quit so I installed new brand name premium lithium ion batteries and still a no-go ‘tool’
    Likely past warranty so I opened the opener and found 100% cheap plastic gears that were all worn down……AFTER ONLY 3-4 CANS?
    Complete waste of money and abusive product that steals a senior’s meager income.
    This will be my final AS-SEEN-ON-TV product purchase regardless of how great the product may sound and how low the cost.
    Please do not waste your money while also increasing your blood pressure.

  2. This can opener is a serious hazard to your hands and fingers, especially if you use it for tuna fish cans. This opener does not work like a traditional can opener such as cutting from the inside of the lid, rather it cuts ont OUTSIDE of the lid, seriously compromising the structural integrity of the can, leaving a seriously sharp edged can which has lost its structural integrity! Try draining the liquid from a tuna can when one usually can insert the cut lid right into the can, when the can is cut from the inside of the lid. Instead, with a can cut from the OUTSIDE of the lid, one is at serious risk of a severe cut from the the very sharp rim from the outside of the now very weakened can
    This product should be banned from the marketplace as a serious health hazard.

    • I should mention I used this on a 12oz size can of Tuna, Even if only works properly on small cans, it should still be banned if it will not work properly on larger sized can,

  3. I got mine as a gift. I used for the first time today. The lid got stuck and I did what I was supposed to do. I tried for an hour to get it released. It never did. I trashed it after I contacted my sister that gifted it to me.

  4. I went to use the opener and it flat would not work. I followed instructions (new batteries). Dead as a doornail! What is wrong? It worked like a charm before.
    How does one get help about this problem?



  6. I have had my Handy Can Opener for at least 10 years : never failed me . I have just ordered 8 more for Xmas presents : they are great . I tried a COPY , but wouldn’t cut open a can . Take a good look at the pic : is yours the same ? You must let it stop by itself .
