The Mello is a side cut can opener constructed completely of plastic and stainless steel. It has an ergonomic grip that is comfortable and easy to hold. Getting it started is it little harder than your average can opener, but once it is started, its a breeze to use. The sharp side cut blade leaves an extremely smooth edge that is much less likely to cut you than the edge left by most can openers.
Overall I am very happy with the build, quality, and functionality of the Mello can opener.
