I think all cans should be pop-tops.
The one that came with my old house, screwed to the wall, works great on everything. The ones found in the gadget aisle of the grocery store, even the "fancy" ones with colored plastic handles, start having mishaps in a year or two. They just can't navigate the dents, or anything else probably thin can related. I don't open many cans though, so I keep waiting for them all to go pop-top.
