I had decided to do my kitchen in red so start buying all red appliances so as soon as I saw this can opener I had to buy it. It is very sleek and does not look bulky sitting on my counter top. I was not expecting anything fancy because it was just a basic can opener and o but just needed something to open cans for the first month it worked perfectly.

I start having trouble getting the magnet to latch on to the can then when it was done it would just drop the can. Finally the magnet fell completely off and I have tried numerous times to put it back on but I use it once and it comes right back off. It has a removable top so you can put it in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. After I removed it the first time it keeps falling off and has never latched right on correctly.

Now every time I open a can it is a huge fight trying to get it to open and I have to remember to hold on otherwise it bangs off the counter and I end up with sauce and soup all over the counter. The only good thing about the can opener that is although I need a new one that Hamilton is going to donate a portion of each sale of can opener to the American heart association.
