how did I live without it!!!!!
from Flint, MI
I really cannot live without it now that I've used it.
Not a good thing
Bought several of these to give as stocking stuffers and also one for myself. Sadly I'm ashamed to give them. Only works on very thin envelopes etc. Also you have to play with it trying the ends if the top doesn't cut. Disappointed - I used one of these at work all the time and never had a problem. Maybe it was a different company that made it. These are a lot of trouble just to open the mail!

It does a good job at first with small(not thick) envelopes. Then the blade dulls and sometimes takes a few tries before it opens the whole letter
Nice looking, but it doesn't do the job

I have purchased many items in my life time that were not what they were suppose to be. This electric letter opener Is at the top of that list.The envelope doesn't go thru. Don't waste your money.
Awsome Little Letter Opener
from Savannah, GA
I initially purchased this for home use, and decided I get much more mail at my office, so I'm using it everyday. I was skeptical at first that it would work but was pleasantly surprised. Make sure the contents have settled in the bottom of the envelope before slicing through the top of the envelope. Just hold the letter and let it glide through the cutter. Works very well!
I purchased 6 of these letter openers - several were Christmas gifts and kept two for myself (so I'd have one as a back-up). I found it amazing that the items do not come with any specific directions/suggestions as to how use the opener. The picture on the internet shows holding the letter upright and letting it run through the cutters. I have found that it is better to lay the opener on the horizontal, tap the envelop so that the contents "fall" toward the bottom of the envolop, and then let the letter feed through the cutters. By tapping the envelop one can be fairly certain that the cutter disks will not slice through the contents of the envelop. I have been most pleased with this purchase and how smoothly it operates.
I felt cheated

After 10 uses it would not cut the paper.I could see that the two wheels were not touching.This doesn't allow the wheels to act as a can opener.Bad constuction.
