Have had this can opener for well over 20 years. It has given excellent service for all sorts of cans. It developed a problem last year and I retired it to the workshop as a possible source of parts for a replacement (yes...a hoarder). After searching for another Sunbeam replacement, hard to find at a good price, I finally bought a well rated Hamilton Beach.
EVERY can was a challenge to get aligned; and it always shredded some of the label; AND as a parting insult when the lid popped into the magnet it would spit product at you.
After several months of trying to tame the beast I dug out the old SUNBEAM and with a dab of super glue fixed a small crack in the plastic arm. IT WORKED !
What a relief, you can slap a can up against it almost blindfolded and it will automatically open it and politely retain the lid for you. I'll never take it for granted again.
The P-S? Waiting for the next trip to the Goodwill bin.

This can opener is a waste of money. I got this for Christmas and have used it 3-4 times and it is already broken and in the trash where it belongs. Will not open large cans or cans with a lip around the edge. If it doesn't open cans then it's a $30 paper weight, because it is useless. Atleast it poked a hole big enough to get my metal shears into to get to my soup!!
