With its sleek, cordless design, this handheld can opener makes it quick and easy to open cans of all sizes. To use, simply place the unit on top of the can and press the button. It will automatically make its way around the can's rim--hands-free, opening the can in seconds. Then, just lift the can opener up off the can; its magnet will pick up the lid, which means no more lids falling into cans of food. Plus it cuts from the side, so there are no sharp edges to worry about. The battery-operated appliance will open over 100 cans before needing a new set of batteries, and it stores conveniently in a drawer when not in use. Two AA batteries are required for operation (not included). The egg-shaped electric can opener measures 6-1/2 by 3 by 1-3/4 inches.
