We use this can opener daily. There are only a couple things good about this can opener. 1) It works well and 2) it was a good price. The bad thing about this can opener is you have to hold the can opener the whole time a can is attached to it. The can opener does not have a center of gravity to withstand heavy weight on the magnet without it tipping over. I would recommend for this product to 1) either have a suction cup base to attach to the counter top or 2) have a better center of gravity to withhold a can without having to hold the can opener.
Excited to order this name brand but very, very sorry I got this one. Excited to receive before Chriistmas !!!! However, only used ONCE and the arm broke. In the process of returning. Don't be fooled ! Brand names mean nothing anymore --- trust the reviews !!!!!
I am not sure what Hamilton Beach was thinking on the construction on this. The magnetic arm is cheap plastic and literally busted on third use and was returned. I bought a different Hamilton Beach model, and that was fine. Don't waste your money on this one. And in restrospect, I should have heeded some of the other reviews, because I am not the only one this happened to have the arm break.
when you try and open up a can the insert keeps coming out and that's because your sappose to be able to remove the cutter to clean which i though was a good feature until i found out it comes out to easily. I would not recommend buying this can opener to any one
