Can opener
Does anyone use a manual can opener? I prefer them bc I can throw them in the dishwasher. But the last two I bought got rusted right away and seized up--despite saying dishwasher safe on their packaging. Obviously, they're not jennybee proof Dodgy Wink Anyone use a manual can opener that they like--that lasts and I can't destroy? Tongue

I have a manual because we have a super tiny kitchen and no room for an electric. My hands would prefer and electric but fuck them. What I've found is it is better to spend more on one and avoid any that have any plastic on them.
The one I have now is an "Oneida stainless steel". I've had it for a couple of years and maybe it was $25.

Is it dishwasher safe?

RE: Can opener
oh....I never dishwash ours. I hand wash it. Not sure if it can be washed in dishwasher.

RE: Can opener
I suggest an Oxo Smooth Edge opener. There is no contact with the contents of the can so it rarely needs much washing.

And, as the name implies, there are no sharp cut metal edges.

RE: Can opener
Never owned an electric can opener. The two manual openers we have are both pretty generic and with no rust problem. I generally just rinse them off in the sink and dry immediately afterwards, though.

Pretty sure my manual is a Kitchen Aid, and I think it's great. One reason for owning a manual is for hurricane season.
