I'm looking for an electric can opener for someone with arthritic hands who can no longer press down to pierce a can using a manual opener. They also have limited grip strength and can't open lift tab cans.
So far, the Hamilton Beach Smooth Touch opener seems to have everything I'm looking for:
-a device that takes very little effort to engage the opener
Does anyone have any experience with this product? It doesn't appear very much effort is required to press down on the top lever or release the can after it's through cutting.
Or, if you have any other recommendations, I'm all ears! TIA
