I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know the answer to this question. You'd think after 8 years, I should know, but I don't. Is there a way to sharpen the can opener? I've wondered that myself, but never bothered to find out the answer --- not I have a customer wondering. Thanks!:confused:

No & If the customer is complaining that theirs is dull, tell them call HO & get a product Adjustment. I've had mine for about 5 years & have no problem. HTH

Mine is also getting dull, and I have had a for a few years. Just like all other's after time you just need to replace.

Not sure if this is true or not, but a guest mentioned that using rubbing alcohol with a q-tip around the "wheels" brings it back to life. She stated that the glue gunk builds up over time. HTH

Mine is at least 12 years old! Probably closer to 15 years old. I was just recently mentioning at a show that it's time to buy a new one. One of the guests brought it to my attention that the cylinder section was sitting crooked. I straightened it & it works better now! :D Is yours crooked too?

Does she actually own our can opener? I've had my forever and it still works perfectly fine. It doesn't build up gunk....not like the 'traditional' can openers (that just is gross when you think about it now! No one ever thinks to wash those can openers that get into the actual food or the top of the lids that fall in...:eek:)

Yes she owned one....she was referring to the gunk from the glue that keeps the lid and can together, and not the food. Isn't that the trick to our can opener? It separates the lid from the can? I've only have had mine for about 6 months.

yes- I think so...not sure about the "technicals". Interesting..I don't THINK mine has built up gunk, but I've still not had any issues with it getting 'dull'.

Given how LONG i've had it, even if it did, it would be worth it for me to purchase another one. I got my money's worth.

Yep and you can not sharpen something that does not have a blade!

My BFF got one from me in April 08, returned it in October and just sent THAT ONE back in this week. She said, half jokingly, that she ought to bill them for the shipping!

I tried the rubbing alcohol on it first, but no dice. She said it has mangled several cans since.

I don't use mine quite as often ... it came in the spree last summer and I am the only one in my house who uses it. It's seeming to get a bit dull now.
