I bought this can opener mostly for the looks, I admit! The beautiful cobalt blue matches my small appliances. The design is lovely. I was disappointed to discover that they sacrificed usability for appearance. The handle is slippery. If my hands are wet, I'm in for a rough ride! Even with dry hands, opening cans is not easy. In addition, this can opener is so large that it doesn't fit in a shallow drawer. I have to keep it in a deep drawer with dissimilar tools. Disappointing. This might be one fancy can opener on it's way to Goodwill.
