    Jane, there were a few negative reviews on
    Amazon for this item that expressed mu exact opinion (that this new design sucks and now it is cheap made in China crap ) but the vast majority were positive reviews. I dont know what to make of this. I suppose this is just one more thing to look out for in vintage wares.
    I've resorted to that lately...

    I think maybe not everyone is that picky about can openers. Does it open cans? Oh good.

    I have two EZ-DUZ-IT can openers (gotten new on Amazon) I've had for about 2 years, they are just traditional can openers. They do seem to have a tendency to rust, but it doesn't seem to effect their performance, they still open cans, better than most of the supermarket/big box stuff anyway.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I used a Swing-a-Way manual opener that worked well for many years, but I prefer the smooth edge model.

    Included in Amazon reviews was a review from an ER doctor who said he saw many injuries in his ER from sharp edges of can lids.

    Yep. Dog food can. November 1995. Deep diagonal across middle finger on right hand. I'm in the federal background check so I should be able to be ID'd...unless they remove my fingertips.

    I've had this one for 15 years: http://www.tupperware.com/can-opener-2306.html
    "Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasure in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, your heart is also." Jesus
