My g/f can't use ours at all. There's a little nack to it. You need to squeeze it tight and apply a bit of pressure.

Ours is very tempromental, sometimes it works fine, other times it can take about 5 minutes to open the can cos the wheels just spin, i gotta pierce the lid about 20 times all the way around then use a fork to prize the top up and off

Are electric ones actually decent? I always imagined t'd be harder to get them to grip the can.

We've got a new one, it's shit, the onld one you could use 2 ways, so you could cut the top off leaving the sharp edge 'up' or the other way so you could do it so it's like a tin with a ringpull. The new one can only do the sharp edge way. Stupid.

I brought forward the idea of having one for our staffroom at work, everyone loves it.

Only about 6 from Argos for a cheapo one!

Only problem with electric ones is they topple over when opening a big can. Unless you mount it on the wall obviously!

Probably asda sounds exactly the same as mine, and ours works fine.
