Cuisinart® Deluxe Stainless Steel Can Opener
We included this item on our wedding registry and received it as a gift. We've only had it for 6 months and it's already going out on us!!! It worked perfect the first few months, but now it doesn't even have enough power to open cans anymore. It comes on but it just struggles with the can and doesn't even turn them. I'm planning on bringing it to Bed Bath & Beyond, hoping they'll either exchange it or give us store credit for a different can opener. Had high hopes considering Cuisinart usually has top of the line products, but DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY WITH THIS ONE!!!

Made with cheep parts
Had can opener over the 3year warranty but hardly used it. One day found the plastic gear to have broken attached to the level. Called to find out how to order the part. Was told by Cuisanart this part is not available to order. You have to replace the entire unit.
This is insane to replace a entire 50 dollar unit for a plastic 50 cent part.
If they new this happens all the time why would they stop making this part of plastic and go to metal. Because they want you to buy an entire unit.
I will not buy another Cuisanart product because they seem to have a record of this process.

excellent value and excellent quality
I love it! It looks good with my other stainless steel appliances, so I leave it out on the countertop. It's tall enough for large cans. The design is sleek. I'd recommend it to others.

I give up on this opener
I am about to return the 2nd one of these that I have tried. This is a total piece of garbage. It works completely inconsistently. I liked the looks of it, but looks are deceiving! I will look for a lower cost, better operating opener. This should not be sold in the stores. Shame on Cuisinart for putting their name on such an inferior product!

Looks good on the counter, but...
This opener never worked correctly. Always took two hands to get the motor to run. Now it quit completely. Believe the reviews before you buy.

Excellent Customer Service
We had this can opener just over 3 years and worked fine when the plastic insert on the lever handle broke. I contacted Cuisinart Customer Service and informed them what broke on the can opener. They asked for the Model Number and the Serial Number which I did. Then a few days later they informed me that the lever handle will be replaced at no cost to me and I should receive it in 7 10 10 days. I received the new lever in 6 days. I was very grateful of their decision. Now there is a company that stands up for their product.

My husband gave this to me for Christmas. I read the reviews before I tried it and was nervous I would need to exchange it. This can opener works great! It's quick, quiet and just does the job with no fuss. I think the bad reviews may come from people forcing it on the wrong way. The first time I used it I thought I needed to hold tight & press hard. The truth is you hold the can against the 2 guide bars & lightly press down on the handle. The machine does the rest & cleanly lifts the lid up & away. I highly recommend this product

It doesn't work!!!
This can opener opened 2 or 3 cans and then quit. I could never open another can with it. Don't waste your money. BBB gave me my money back with no argument.
