“Lifetime warranty for a can opener?

Are you kidding?”, asked my friend in our conversation.

No, I was not kidding.

A can opener does not need to be disposable.

I know, we get so accustomed to even large appliances, like refrigerators or washing machines, coming with just a 1 -year limited warranty, that we do not expect much more for a can opener. I used to have my fair share of those gadgets that “go to trash” after a few months of service, but not anymore!

It comes as a pleasant surprise in today’s throwaway American culture, that there are some brands that give a lifetime warranty on their tools.
