Looks fine, but is cheap
This review is from: Oster 3151 Can Opener
Pros: The price and color is why I chose this. The slim selection I saw in retail stores looked to be blow-out items, as if can openers were no longer used. I was happy to find this one in white, that was a name-brand, that SEEMED to be the price a can opener should cost.
Cons: This can opened has a weak motor. It's the slowest one I've ever used, outside of a handheld one with weak batteries. When I tried using it on a 5 lb can, it went an inch or so and stopped - even though I was supporting the can and nothing was binding. The arm that holds the piercing/cutting tip is plastic, and flexes a bit, and I think it should be stronger. I see why this is at the price it is.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why it's so hard to find a decent can opener at a decent price. They are very simple appliances. I would recommend getting a better can opened than this. You'll be sorry and will still have to use your manual can opener on ocassion.
