Will work with the right touch
from San Antonio, TX
I have had a couple of these openers (different brands) and they will work if you give just a little push upward on the back end of the opener as it goes around. It should be better designed so this is not necessary but it is still the best opener for arthritic hands that I have found.

Did not work for me
About Me Avid Cook
This can opener is a great idea, but the product did not live up to the expectations I had when I ordered it. The very first time I tried to open an average size can of soup, it started, then after going 1/4 of the way around the can it stopped I followed the directions using the manual dial to release it, but had to pry it off. It took several minutes to get it off the can. So I put a second set of brand new batteries inside, thinking that might be the problem. But I had the same results. So I tried a different type of can. I tried opening some green beans. No luck. My husband and I have both tried it several times with several sets of batteries. It does not work. I am very disappointed with this product. I would have sent it back, but I already threw away the plastic clamshell container it came in I only kept the instructions.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
hands free can opener
from modesto, ca. sent to indian tocks beach,
I sent this to my parents for christmas (their last one broke) and it doesn't work. Three different sets of batteries and it just groabs and stops. I am hoping the company will make this right asap. Would recommend ONLY if the company fixes this.
from Yazoo City, MS
I loved it. But after using it two times, the third time was not the charm. It no longer works. Will return. It's great when it works: lightweight, you press the button a couple seconds and then it cuts the can on it's own, no sharp edges. If they could just get it to work. The writing on it "HERCULES" is wearing away after two uses. Improve the product please!

Piece of junk!
By Rick Sure Shot Sid's
from Tallahassee, FL
Didn't work from the time it came out of the box! Hard to open the battery compartment. Nice idea but junk made in China! Sent it back for refund!
A wonderful help for arthritic hands!

Not as expected
from Central NJ
This was a replacement for one that "disappeared". This one wobbles around the can top and stops before the lid is done. I have to pick it up and replace it on the can for a 2nd round.. Then the lid lifts off fine. This was disappointing as my original one was super....
