Tinned cans of food have been a staple addition to my shopping basket over the years from tinned budget branded fruit to major branded tins, which never have ring pulls. As a failed dieter on many an occasion I still prefer to buy tinned food and being single and living alone find that tin cans are still economical to live with. Although some tins now have ring pulls, many do not and its with slight hesitation I reach for my cheap can opener to open the tins with. Mechanical tin openers are not an option in life; they are a necessity if you buy tins of food generally. From the cheapest £1 types which have awkward handles to the Brabantia £5-00 priced ...

Can openers are a strange yet very important part of life. They have one single purpose and that is to open cans so that we can eat the delicious contents that are locked away inside, be those contents baked beans, chicken soup or even pet food, although I wouldn't know if pet food is delicious as I Haven't tried tasting it... well not for a while anyway. Anyway, I said, can openers, or tin openers, depending on where you're from and how you speak, are quite an important way of life, especially if you or your pets like canned food. So, over the years can openers have come in all shapes and sizes, such as the old fashioned 'stab' type where you use all your ... Read the complete review

One item that we own in the house that I never really thought of as a necessity was an electric can opener that my partner got from Argos as he thought it looked good. He is a bit of a gadget fanatic and just liked the thought of having another electrical gadget in the kitchen to play with, so it now takes pride of place on my kitchen worksurface! At the time of purchasing, I thought this was a bit of a junk buy as it wasn't really needed. I can understand an electric can opener being handy if you are elderly or disabled, or suffering from conditions such as arthritis, but for young, fit (supposedly!), adults like ourselves, there was nothing wrong with a ...

We had a brill tin opener that cost mega bucks but it broke, my mum only bought this Argos Value Can Opener to see us through because none of us can be bothered with a manual one any more. We haven't been in a rush to replace it though because we haven't had any problems with it and for £6.99 it's been just as good as the really expensive one, it just doesn't look as shiny! It's a basic electric tin opener and looks it, the plastic looks a bit cheapy and the pure white colour of it hasn't even got the Argos logo on...... most people would be glad NOT to have the logo on the plastic but I think it looks proper plain. The tin opener runs out off ... Read the complete review

my mother has severe arthritus in most of her joints now due to two much wear and tear, she could no longer apply the presure needed to open a tin with a normal tin opener so i brought her this electric can opener from the argos for £4.99 The can opener itself is made of a white plastic that is very easy to clean and the cutting blades are made of metal It is a tall design so will take most sizes of tins and is very easy to operate, to use all you need to do is lift up the handle on the top and put the tin under where a magnet will hold it, push the handle down and away it goes opening the tin, i find this very easy to use but my mom strugles to get ...
