ATLANTA -- Can openers are staple items in any kitchen.

The Tornado Can Opener promises that it is "the faster, easier and more powerful can opener."

Deanna is a little skeptical of the product.

"I honestly have no idea how this would even work!" she says, adding that she is familiar with her old-fashioned can opener and doesn't see the need for the new gadget.

Even though she's reluctant, Deanna agrees to try the Tornado. She puts in the batteries, places the opener on a can, pushes the white button and lets it go.

Unfortunately, the Tornado doesn't go as fast as anticipated.

"I don't know if this is quite the tornado I was expecting," Deanna says.

When the Tornado finishes working, Deanna presses the white button one more time. Not only does the product open the can, but it contains a magnet that attaches itself to the lid so it doesn't fall back into the can.

"I love that it took the whole thing off," Deanna says. "There are no sharp edges. You don't have to dig."

Deanna tries the Tornado on several cans of differing sizes, and it works on all of them. But she still isn't 100 percent sold on the product for her own kitchen.

"I'll hang on to my old can opener, but I will give the Tornado one thumb up because it does do what it says it's intended to do, and it does it well," she says.
