Looking to buy a new Electric Can Opener

emeraldjules | Sep 4, 201209:49 AM     7

Back in February my cheap $10 electric can opener died after 10+ years of service. In March I had to put everything in storage, so I have not really worried about having to replace it until now.

The old one was extra tall, meaning it would handle the taller cans.
I like that feature.

I have read the various discussions about hand held can openers and will check out the OXO line next time I am at the cookware store. Need easy to grip items.

What features in an electric can opener should I be looking for? What are you using? Why do you like the one you use?

Thanks!
