Ok. I'll monitor it and alert the team. I'm wondering if it didn't recognize that I was on a mobile device right away. Hmmmmmm.

So when I saw Smartpost, I expected to get this in, oh, a week.

Imagine my confusion when my mailman rings my doorbell and delivers my package today, approximately 48 hours after I ordered it.

Excellent use of Amazon fulfillment center, Woot friends.

Now I need to figure out something to eat that involves a can and a jar.

Got mine today but the jar opener isn't big enough to open a jar with a 4" top.

Wow, these arrived warp speed. I am so used to waiting 2 weeks for anything from woot that I couldn't figure out what showed up in my mailbox yesterday. Two days! Good job.

Got mine today. Pretty disappointed to say the least. I ordered 2 red - one for me and 1 for friend who has all red kitchen stuff. Sounds petty, but I thought the red would actually be red. Instead, not only is it more of a rust or cinnamon red, but the jar opener and the can opener are not even the same shade of this so-called "red".

When I bought, I read all the comments and didn't see anyone say these were not true red. I read the jokes about how the red ones are faster and all that, but didn't see anyone post that the color really wasn't red.

Impressed with the shipping speed, but not impressed with the item.

Or Woot Soop

So I think ingredients are:
LeakFrogs
Flying monkey bits
a Bunnies Ogling Carrots (contents of which are worth at least 5 times the cost)
Woot wine
a couple of micro SD cards for flavor
And coupon under the label for either a refurb Roomba or refurb Dyson and a complimentary over-stocked Woot T-shirt

Got mine earlier in the week and I am impressed.

The red I got seemed adequately red, and I can't remember thinking the jar opener was a different shade of red than the lid lifter.

I bought it because the You-Tube video mentioned earlier made it look like the lid lifter opened the can like a hot knife through warm butter. When I finally figured out how to get it attached to the can and started turning, I didn't really think it was doing anything, the movement was so smooth. Sure enough, the lid popped right off.

Glad I got 3.

Likewise. I live in NYC and got mine on Sat 4/14. Not only is it SmartPost, but our USPS postal carriers are somewhat incompetent, so I didn't expect it until Thurs or so. The sad irony is that USPS has been much quicker and responsible since the massive layoffs. Wow, Woot has been so fast with recent items that I've failed several times at making order modifications and cancellations.

Although I've used other brands of these type of openers, we're treating it as a new toy. Like you, we've been looking for cans to open -- and then storing the contents in a jar so that we can use the jar opener too! We've even used it to open cans that have a lift-top.

Yep, limit is 3.5". So you need to stop buying those megasize jars at food warehouses!

AS for the can opener, it too has some limits. You may have difficulty opening rectangular cans, i.e. sardines, because the the knob gets in the way. It's a design flaw. They should have elevated the knob a bit or make the knob smaller. It's one reason some people prefer the top turning models.

Okay, I'm replying way after the Woot is over but ... you're wrong in several ways.

1) This is a more expensive model that has the knob on the side. It's more expensive (and bulkier) because of the additional gears necessary to translate vertical turning knob to horizontal turning around the can. The vertical turning knob is more natural and comfortable for most people (like an old fashion can opener), especially those with arthritis. Amazon sells this model for $20 (and free s/h if you spend over $25).

2) This Woot comes with a Jar Opener, which is $20 alone on Amazon. The can opener you linked to only has 2 of the 5 functions of this jar opener. And it doesn't open jars.

In other words, you're getting $40 worth of gadgets if bought separately.

I got mine, and I've yet to open a single can without going back to my Pampered Chef opener, as dull as it is.

I'm not convinced this is a learning curve issue, but who knows? Anyway... the good folks at Kuhn Rikon have offered to send a replacement. If that doesn't work I'm sticking with ring-tab pulls.

FWIW, the lid lifter that is part of the opener is pretty aromatic... you can't get much more than a gentle squeeze on the lid rim without damaging the device. Better keep those needle-nose pliers nearby.

I thought I was doing something wrong but turns out mine is defective. My brother ordered 2 sets and both his work fine. Mine wouldn't catch when turning the knob.

Did anyone actually used the can opener, I spend 10 minutes and cannot figure it out. The instructions with drawing is not much help. Is there a video???

Hmm, I contacted the manufacturer on April 18 (never done a return before and the woot FAQ said to contact manufacturer first) and they responded (April 19th) by asking for which one was broken (I thought I had specified the can opener but apparently I didn't) and then my mailing address saying they will send a replacement. I haven't heard from them again so I guess I'll wait a bit and see what happens.

@jk1010jk

It's actually very simple. If you are following the instructions then you might have a faulty one. I thought I was doing something wrong until I pulled out my brother's. It's like a regular can opener but instead of holding it vertical you're holding it horizontal (parallel to the lid) The "wheel" portion needs to be on the outside of the can with the cutting portion on the inside. Once you turn the knob clockwise, you'll feel resistance almost immediately and then you'll start spinning and cutting the can. The problem with mine was when I turned my knob it wouldn't catch the can. It would catch for just a tiny bit and once I continued turning, it would become loose again. Expletives were yelled and hair torn until I decided to get my brother's set because honestly, it's a freaking can opener. How hard can it be right?

Anyway, someone posted it earlier but here's the demonstration link

http://kuhnrikon.com/products/tools/tools.php3?id=367&show_tab=1

It is essentially the same except ours has the knob on the side instead of on top.

Ok, this is exactly what mine is doing... I was starting to think I was just incompetent. I mean, I suppose I might still be incompetent, but in this case it's that the can opener is malfunctioning

It worked for a few cans, not so much now. I dont think it would open a cat turd at this point.

This thing seems about useless, it seems to grab and let go. Hasn't opened a single can. Complete waste of money.

Waste of money for the can opener. The jar opener works good.

Can opener: Busted! Like many others, after only a few uses the "automatic" clamping mechanism gave out and won't grip the rim and apply the "blade". When it worked it was great. But, really, shouldn't it have lasted, well gosh I don't know, a year?!

Mine actually worked on about a dozen cans and now just drops them, no gripping action.

I love these openers, have arthritis starting to set in and they are so easy to use. Love that the can opener doesn't leave those jagged edges. Yep, I wash my cans to recycle and before I had the opener I always nicked my hand. You know there were a few "alternative" words said but, not anymore.
