Can Openers Buying Guide

Refine By

Opening a can can be easy or challenging, depending on the tool you use to do it. Can openers continue to evolve in shape and design in the handheld, manual category. Electric can openers offer the same basic function and style for removing a lid.

Types of Can Openers

Types of Can Openers

There are two basic types of can openers to choose from: manual and electric. It’s a good idea to keep at least one manual can opener in your home for times when you need a backup or during a power outage if you have an electric model. Electric openers are easy to operate, and some feature a cordless design. Battery-operated can openers are also available. Can openers will need to be replaced as the sharpener dulls over time. Occasionally cleaning the blade to remove buildup and corrosion will help its longevity.

Electric

Electric can openers are easy and safe to operate. They also cause the least hand strain. There are many electric styles to choose from, whether it’s placed on the counter or mounted on the wall or under a cabinet. Cordless designs offer extra convenience.

Manual

With a manual can opener, a sharp, round, rotating blade cuts into the edge of the can and continues around as you turn the handle. Be careful, as the edges of the can and lid are as sharp as a knife. Manual can openers come in many shapes and styles. Some are designed for ergonomics, others to eliminate sharp edges. Depending on the style and design, a manual can opener can be stored in a drawer or mounted to a kitchen island.

Battery-operated

Smaller in size and simple to operate, a battery-operated can opener is an easy way to open a can.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Before you buy a can opener, decide if you prefer manual or electric. Also think about where you would like to store the opener: in a drawer, in a cupboard, or on the counter. These variables will dictate the type and style of can opener you choose.

Style

When you’re ready to buy a can opener, think about where you plan to keep it. If you open cans frequently for yourself or your pets, a countertop opener will be easy to access. If you’d prefer to have it out of sight, an undercabinet electric model or a manual opener that can be stowed in a drawer are good solutions.

Electric

If you like the fast, easy convenience of an electric can opener, then you’ll find your next decision to be color. Common choices are white, stainless steel, or black. Other features include extra-tall models to accommodate a variety of can sizes and built-in knife sharpeners.

Manual

If you’re looking for a manual opener, options run the gamut from very basic to wonderfully ergonomic. Each manual opener has a knob that turns to wind the tool around the can to open it. Look for a knob that is comfortable and easily fits your grip.

Bottle opener

Many handheld openers also have a bottle opener integrated into the design. This feature allows you to have one kind of opener instead of two.

Sharp and safe

Whether your can opener is electric or manual, you need to maintain it by keeping the cutting blade clean and free of corrosion that builds up from frequent use. Some can openers are designed to cut under the rim of the lid to prevent sharp edges.
