What experts didn't like

Many people cite the resulting sharp edges as one of the biggest problems with the EZ-Duz-It can opener.
- New York Times Wirecutter
The top of the can is tricky to lift after cutting because, like all traditional rotary openers, this model puts a sharp edge on the lid.
- Serious Eats
It can become wobbly. It rusts.

An Overview On Can Openers

Can openers are a true kitchen staple. Whether you are a college student living in a dorm or a first-rate chef with an extravagant cooking space, you need some sort of can opener. Considering the essentials every can opener requires, as well as your unique wants and needs, can help you select the right one for your kitchen.

Think about whether you prefer a manual or an electric can opener. Manual can openers are affordable and convenient. Since no power is required to use one, you can tuck it in a utensil drawer or take it on a camping trip with the same results. However, they can be challenging to use, especially for someone with limited mobility or fine motor skills, arthritis or weak hands.

Electric can openers are easy to use, usually able to open containers at the touch of a button. Some have additional features, such as the ability to open other types of cans and bottles. The possible downsides of an electric can opener include the need for electricity to operate and the requirement for at least a small amount of counter space.

Of course, a can opener should be well-made, built to last, easy to clean and maintain, and simple to use. In addition, look for a model that leaves smooth edges and a cutting wheel that doesn’t touch food to promote health and safety.

If you can’t decide between two or three different models, let aesthetics be your guide. Go with the can opener that blends into your kitchen’s decor.

The Can Opener Buying Guide

  • Keeping your can opener clean is vital to safe use and to proper function over time. Soak manual can openers or the removable cutting wheel of electric can openers in white vinegar for several minutes. Follow up by scrubbing away dirt or rust with a brush (a toothbrush works well for this purpose) and then washing it with mild dish soap and warm water. Dry it carefully with a clean towel before putting it back.
