Proctor Silex 75400 Under-The-Cabinet Can Opener Review:
The customers who have reviewed this can opener gave it a rating of 3.2 stars. Those who were happy with it were satisfied because of its efficiency and ease of installation. Many of them indicated that it worked wonderfully. They also found it very well thought-out, with one reviewer commending the cord storage feature, since it gave a place for keeping the extra cord not necessary for reaching the electrical outlet. Another reviewer commented that the cutting lever was easy to remove even while the can opener was already mounted under the cabinet, making it very easy to clean. One customer called it a “small but powerful” can opener which also took up very little room. Another buyer even lamented that the white color no longer matched his new kitchen cabinets, because he had enjoyed using it at his old house.
The only problem brought up was one customer whose unit would not latch on properly to the can and had to be returned, with a couple more who had trouble getting it to work properly, too. Strangely one reviewer responded to the negative reviews by saying that he had had no problems like that, as the unit he had had been “dependable and strong, with no adverse symptoms or issues” that the other reviewers had pointed out. As such it may be safe to assume that the negative reviewers just happened to receive defective units, as some of them identified a problem with the motor.
Nearly all the reviewers were definitely willing to recommend this can opener for any busy kitchen, reporting how happy they were with their purchase. If you do buy this can opener, just be sure to test the unit you receive as soon as it arrives to make sure it is not defective, because you can still return it. In any case, you may not even have the same sad experience as the ones who wrote negative reviews did, as many reviewers reported a happy experience anyway.
