The wheel on my manual can opener gets washed every time I use it. The wheel on my electric can opener comes off to be cleaned, either by hand or in the dishwasher. I guess I'm a little anal about that. It just grosses me out to think what kind of ickies are on that wheel.

Can opener...okay, I'll buy that. I do suggest, however, that the hand sink comes in the top 10...

I would think it would be closer to top 3.

I dont wash it every time but if its tuna I make a point.I just know alot of people never think to wash them ever.Just a bit of small trivia on my part.

I received as a gift, one of those can openers that cuts the entire top off the can by cutting around the outer edge of the rim. In addition to working very well, it never gets dirty because it never touches the food in the can!

The can opener can look pretty sketchy, especially a commercially used Edlund "hand jammer" can opener. For those in a restaurant setting, you know exactly of what i speak...and for my experience, the health inspectors LOVE to get you on the can opener.

A home based can opener deserves the same amount of attention to detail as any other tool. Clean as you go, if you use it, WASH IT.
