  • nope I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE mine! I'm a lefty so I was going through manuals about once a month thanks to my "improper" use of it. Manuals are just not made for lefties!!

  • I HATE HATE HATE my electric. It's older and doesn't hold the can or open it by it's self. I have to make sure the blade is in perfectly and turn it manually while it's on..... my son got ahold of my manual one which I loved (it was from the dollar store lol) and broke it.

  • We bought an electric can opener from Target and 2 months later it was broken. IF I didn't stand there and babysit it to make sure the lid of the can was actually punctured it would do nothing but make noise. AND our manual crapped out on us to the other day.

  • I have never used an electric one. My manual is from pampered chef and is going on 8 years without any problems.
