I have had a TouCan for about 6 years. It has finally said it is tired. I have a condition where using conventional can openers is very painful. I just purchased new TouCan to have on hand when the first one no longer works. I use the can opener on an average of 2-3 times a day. It has NEVER failed. This is one of the best purchases I have ever made!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
