I have a Chinese made version similar to this but I am tempted to also buy the American made version for $10.

Tupperware makes a great one like these! No raw, sharp edges=no bleeding fingers!

I got the Kuhn Rikon safety can opener. I love it!

Being a lefty, I've always had that problem. I blame it on the can-opener being designed for righties. My can opener gets used about 4-5 times a year. I don't use stuff that comes in cans very often.

I use a cheapo thrift store can opener, and it seems to work OK, but...I try not to use it very often. Here in Southern California, everything is always in season, and fresh is always better. If I were a lefty, I would probably be forced to survive almost entirely on fresh.
