When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be
followed, including the following:
■ To protect against risk of electrical shock, do not put can opener, cord, or plug
in water or other liquid.
■ Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children.
■ Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and
before cleaning.
■ Avoid contacting moving parts.
■ Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return the
appliance to an authorized service facility for examination, repair, or electrical
or mechanical adjustment.
■ Keep the cord away from the Knife Sharpener (selected models only) and the
path of the knife being sharpened to prevent fire or shock hazard.
■ The use of attachments not recommended or sold by the appliance
manufacturer may cause fire, electric shock or injury.
■ Do not use outdoors.
■ Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch hot surfaces.
■ Do not open pressurized (aerosol type) cans.
■ Do not open cans of flammable liquids such as lighter fluids.
■ Do not operate this appliance in the presence of explosive and/or flammable
■ This appliance is intended for household use only and not for commercial or
industrial use.
This appliance has a polarized plug—
one blade is wider than the other. To
reduce the risk of electric shock, this
plug will fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully into
the outlet, reverse it. If it still does not
fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to defeat this safety feature
by modifying the plug in any way.

How to use
1. Your Blade Assembly has been packed in a separate
cardboard insert. Attach it to the can opener by lin-
ing up the key tabs with the key slots, push in and
turn (A) until it locks into position.
2. Plug the cord into a standard, 120-volt electrical outlet.
3. Lift the Lever, tip the can so that the rim is under the
Locating Post, then push down on the Lever, making sure
the cutter blade is inside the rim. (Figure B) Because of
the hands-free feature, it is not necessary to hold the
Lever down or support the can during cutting. However,
you may have to hold the Can Opener Body when
cutting very tall or heavy cans.
4. When the can is opened, the Can Opener will stop
automatically. To remove the can, hold it with one
hand and raise the Lever with the other. CAUTION:
Avoid contact with the cut edges of the can or lids—
they are sharp. Carefully remove the lid from the
magnet, and discard.
5. You may “stuff” excess cord back into the bottom of
the unit and feed the cord through the notch for
convenient storage. (C)
• This Can Opener should not be used to open cans
designed to be opened by another method, such as a
pull tab, peel-off foil seal, or rolling key. This Can
Opener will not open rimless cans or cans with angled
• If there is a dent in the rim of a can, open the other
end or start the cutting action just beyond the dent.
Cans with heavy seams, uneven rims or odd shapes
may cause the Can Opener to stall. If this occurs,
turn the can slightly by hand to aid the cutting action.
• Frozen juices or foods in cardboard cans should be opened as soon as they are
removed from the freezer. Aluminum lids will not stick to the Magnet.
KNIFE SHARPENING TIPS (Selected Models Only)
• Clean and dry knives before sharpening.
• Do not attempt to sharpen serrated blades, as this will smooth their edges. Do not
attempt to sharpen scissors.
