Very easy to operate. Does a great job, like the side opening on the can.
The only reason I gave this 2stars is I like the way this can opener functions. However, after less than 2 years, mine quit working. It will no longer clamp onto the can. For the price, it should last for many many years. Won’t buy another.
Received as gift. Never thought of a can opener as a great gift....I was wrong. This item is fabulous. Easy, precise and sanitary. Never comes in contact with contents of can. Will never use another can opener.
