  • BLACK & DECKER GIZMO~~Handy Little Can Opener

    Aug 4, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, cordless, can take it anywhere
    Cons: the price is a little high

    Summary: I had been looking for a new can opener for awhile. I came across the Black and Decker Gizmo on QVC. I had seem them before but they were more expensive than others, so I had never paid much attention to it, until now. The Gizmo ... read more

  • A bit slow, but worth the wait

    Mar 11, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, requires no counter space, opens extra-large cans with ease.
    Cons: The removable handle falls off easily and it is a little slow.

    Summary: After several years of fighting with my hand can opener, I decided I needed an electric one. I bought some cheap $8.00 electric can opener and it was broken within a week. I'm sure it was the big cans that did it; the cheap can opener couldn't hold ... read more

  • Looks Like a Small Fat Rat but Does More Tricks Than a Small Fat Rat!

    Feb 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cordless, hands free operation.
    Cons: My charger doesn't work right, doesn't fit in a kitchen drawer.

    Summary: With a name like Gizmo, Black & Decker is trying hard to impress shoppers with their new idea for a can opener. Unlike the manual hand cranking units or even the counter top standalones, Gizmo is cordless, works almost automatically, and ... read more

  • Not terrible, but not terrific, either

    May 31, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, modern-looking, convenient, and easy to clean
    Cons: Slow, and not very powerful

    Summary: It was time to buy a new can opener, and after doing some online research to see if there was anything new and exciting in the world of can openers, I saw the Gizmo. Being a lover of gadgets, I ordered it. It arrived in an interesting looking ... read more

  • Look Ma No Hands

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Saves space and always handy.
    Cons: You might not realize you do not have it put in the charger properly.

    Summary: I purchased this for my wife, from Wal-Mart. Ever since I saw it on television. When we first started using this, we did not know that you were supposed to let go of the can and set it down and let it go. When she did, she was totally amazed at this new ... read more

    Pros: Multiple storage options, Hands-free use, can be used all around the kitchen
    Cons: none

    Summary: The only reason I replaced this can opener is because we switched all our appliances from white to black. I never had any problems or difficulties with this opener and it was always handy. It was left in the under-cabinet mount most of the time, and used ... read more

  • B&D Gizmo Can Opener Fizzles

    Jan 3, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Great concept.
    Cons: The realization of the Gizmo concept is a waste of money.

    Summary: Purchased roughly six months ago, properly installed under counter, never abused, used once or twice a day until a few weeks ago when a can of soup seemed to do it in. All indications were the Gizmo was well charged--we always kept it plugged in so how ... read more

  • Works great but why?

    Rated Show
    Pros: Works well, interesting shape and cordless concept.
    Cons: Not good for short cans, cuts the lid entirely off no control.

    Summary: We received the B&D Gizmo cordless, portable can opener for a gift and wondered why? Why would you want the little palm shaped can opener? After trying it out it is apparent: 1. it is cordless, you are not tied to an under counter or counter ... read more

  • Great idea, looks are deceiving!

    Pros: Cordless, no ugly can opener on the counter.
    Cons: Not enough power, wouldn't hold a decent charge!

    Summary: I initially bought the Black & Decker Gizmo because I wanted a little more counter space (this would fit easily into a drawer). It's such a great idea, I'm surprised no one thought of it sooner. I got it home and couldn't wait for it to charge so I could ... read more

    Pros: Hands-free can opening, easy to wash the removable blade, cordless
    Cons: Charger needs to be set right to work, is complex for elderly

    Summary: This little Gizmo is the perfect gift and it's handy whenever you need a can opened.I don't know what I would do without it.The only problem I can see and have done is that you must make sure the can opener is in tight in the charge or it will not ... read more

    Pros: It looks good,mounts under a cabinet to save space and is easy to clean.
    Cons: Not enough power to open a single can.

    Summary: If I could find the receipt I would return my Gizmo for sure. It takes 20 or more seconds to open a tuna fish can, and will only work barely on one can then dies. I tried to use it in the charger thinking it might have more power....WRONG. one word ... read more

    Pros: Cute as a bug Works nicely.........
    Cons: .........when it works Owned 2, 2 are useless

    Summary: This was a good thing when we bought our first one. It's easy to use, and you can amaze your friends with it. However, after about 9 months the little gadget that holds the cutting head into the body wore out somehow. We tracked down and ordered a new ... read more
