Our manual one sucks but it's doesn't suck nearly as much as our electric one does. It takes me longer to get the focking electric one to hook onto the can than it does to just open the can with the manual one. Wife's cousin has a manual Kitchen Aid one that just cuts through cans like it's warm butter. I need me one of those. Why is Kitchen Aid stuff so damn good?
Manual. Cheap two buck one that sits in my drawer. Humans are getting lazy enough without needing electric can openers....
Its like running up the stairs beside the escalater. You do it because they are there.
electrics are nice, but they have become too complicated...i mean, its a f-ing can....how long does a hand crank model take to open it? by the time you get the electric one out of where it is and plug it in, then align the can on the unit, you would be done w/ a hand crank model.
