This hand held manual can opener has large slip resistant handles, large turning knob and a hardened steel blade. The handles are rounded to fit the palm of the hand comfortably. It may be useful for people who need larger handles and turning knob. The user will still need to have enough strength in their hands to squeeze the handles together whilst turning the knob. Good Grips products are moderately priced and have won the Tylenol/Arthritis Foundation Design Award.
