As Usual, Great Zyliss ProductMar 27, 2008
By J. Thom
We got this can opener(Zyliss Lock-n-Lift) to replace our Kitchenaid one which was a waste of money. Every Zyliss product we've tried has been fantastic, and this is no exception. The lock on this opener holds the can tightly for a quick, easy open. The release button is in a convenient spot. I love the magnet on the end to lift the lid out of the can- no more cuts on my fingertips! I usually rinse the opener in hot water after use and set it in the drainer to dry. I also rinse cans before opening to help keep the opener cleaner.I highly recommend this opener!!!!!

A Great Can Opener!Dec 21, 2007
By S. Girl
We have had nothing but trouble with every can opener we have EVER purchased. It didn't matter whether it was pricey or cheap. After reading some of the reviews on the Zyliss, we decided to try it. It is the best can opener we've ever used, but then everything we have purchased by Zyliss has been a great tool. You won't be disappointed!

Zyliss Lock-n-Lift Can Opener
Imagine opening a can being pleasant. No, I am not nuts; please read on!
For several years, I have owned this Zyliss and each time I open a can, I am again impressed with the ergonomics, ease, quality, and longevity of this product.
The ultimate can opener test: Open a rectangular can of sardines with the Zyliss (of course the can must have rounded corners)? Forget the pull tab on the can because this opener does the job better and the lid is completely severed. Why do I care? Because I can now pour out all of that tasty juice along with the sardines. Rinsing the can afterwards (a must to keep family members happy) is easier because the lip on the edge of the can is gone.
Today, I sent a Zyliss to each of our (very senior) parents with the thought and assurance it will make their lives much easier.
Who says a better Can Opener can't be invented!
Oh yeah, it also works equally as well on all cans I have opened!

operates smoothly, but may be quite a handful for some...Oct 08, 2010
Zyliss, a Swiss company that makes gadgets for the kitchen, seems to have a particular approach to ergonomics, incorporating some odd shapes into their products. Zyliss's Lock-n-Lift can opener, like their vegetable peelers, has rounded slightly oversized handles. The handles need to be unlocked by tripping a small lever, before you can clamp the opener on the lid of a can. The handles are then squeezed together, until the lock on the handle clicks into the locked position. The handles have rubber inserts which provide a solid grip. Chances are your hands will feel quite "full", when using this device.
The handle that turns the cutting blade is also rounded with rubber edges. It turns fairly easily, and the cutting action is pretty smooth. There is a magnet at the front of the opener to pick up the severed can lid, but it isn't very strong, and disappointingly does not always lift the lid reliably. This opener takes up a bit more space, but it does work pretty well (except for the magnet). Those with really small hands might have some issues using it.
Made of hard plastic, the handle lock is obviously one of the key parts, because if this piece breaks, the opener will be extremely inconvenient to use. Hopefully this won't happen for a very long time.
