I got an OXO Smooth Edge Can Opener when I was in college 11 years ago and we still use it around the house today!

Most people are taught to use their can openers incorrectly. Here's a video showing the best method;

I had the same problem, bought this about 5 years ago and haven't given can openers a second thought since. But dear Jesus I think I of $30 for mine. They're wanting 300 for them now. It mounts under your upper cabinets out of the way.

ANYTHING Pampered Chef is pretty awesome!

Amazon or any of the old Army-Navy stores. The one I carry was given to me in 1994 in Dona Ana NM (North Ft Bliss), so 26 years and hasn't failed a time.
I have one of each and carry the smaller in my wallet. You never know when you'll need a can opener

My wife uses a hand held electric made by Krups that unrolls the crimp instead of cutting the can. She worries about metal dropping into the contents with the cutting ones.

I'm feeling bad about making my wife use a flathead screwdriver and a hammer. Y'all's women are spoiled!

she bought one somewhere, it must work well she is not bothering me to open cans anymore!

I would buy one of those fancy do dads that open jars,, but a man has to maintain some superiority! ( usefulness !)
