great little gadget”
by Mrs Deighton
I was a bit hesitant to buy this having read some of the negative reviews..however it works great and is a big help to me as I find it difficult to use a regular can opener. I am also delighted that it is compact and doesn't take up too much space!

Doesn't work for me :(”
Really great idea, if only it worked! I have to take the batteries out to stop it rotating but now have a lid stuck on the opener and am unable to use it. The search continues... Disappointing though.

Brilliant tin opener when I discovered how to use it!”
by Aine MacNamara
I don't normally leave reviews for products but I have to for this one. Like other customers I thought mine wasn't working because it wouldn't turn off. I made the mistake of pushing the button several times and ended up having to remove the batteries to get it to stop. I took the tin opener back to Lakeland Belfast and I just have to say how helpful the staff were. I was told straight away that it would be replaced and because I had other items to shop for I left it at the counter. The sales assistant had discovered my mistake by the time I returned. Wonderful people, terrific company!!

Absolutely rubbish - dont bother buying this”
I bought this in the Lakeland shop earlier today and tried to open a can of tuna, cut finger and manual can opener later I got into it. Simply doesn't work, makes lots of noise, runs around the can but doesn't do the job of cutting all the way. Don't bother buying!! Rated as 1 as 0 isn't a possibility.

It wont stop!”
My mum has arthritis & has great difficulty opening cans. So my aunt bought my mum this tin opener, however every time she tries to use it, it won’t stop! This upsets her. It’s very disappointing as we have tried all sorts of tin openers, and this is the second battery one from Lakeland. This first one kept locking up and she can’t use it either.

successful on second attempt!”
I too had trouble with the first electric can-opener. It wouldn't stop until I had removed the batteries. However, on contacting the customer services department, I was promised a replacement. This was delivered very promptly and has been an all time success! No more struggling with an arthritic hand to open cans. Just place it on the can and watch it do its job! Wonderful!
