Manual can opener- which to buy? Such a disparity in pricing.

kimeats | Jan 17, 201110:33 AM

So over the past 4 years or so we've owned 2 cheap-o manual can openers and one mid-range opener. All have died and failed.

Mostly we use these for opening large tins of tomatoes in the off-season, or some beans etc. We definitely aren't using it daily.

I was in the grocery (Wegmans) and found the OXO can opener is $19.99... is this worth it? It seems to be the same as the $6.99 can openers.

On amazon, some can openers are up to $50.

I beg you, tell me which can opener you use. I need a good one that won't crap out quickly.
