Culinare MagiCan Opener
Advantages: works well,easy to use
Disadvantages: sometimes misses a bit!
My ancient can opener finally cease to work a few months ago meaning a new one was needed! I really didn't have time to look around and picked up a culinare magi can opener whilst shopping in my local Tesco. I can't remember how much I paid but it is now on sale in Tesco at £4.50.
The can opener is made of white plastic and it is quite small measuring 14.8 cm in height x 5.5 cm in width. It does take up less space in my drawer but its small size also makes it a bit fiddly to use. The can opener is easy to use and works by sitting on top of the can, cutting the lid off as it rotates. The lid is removed cleanly with no jagged edges, so there is less danger of cutting yourself. Simply press the button to release the removed lid. The opener is not suitable for dishwashing and neither should it be placed into water. To clean simply wipe with a damp cloth.
The can opener is easy to use and would be useful for people with weak hands or wrists. It cuts well most of the time, removing the lid cleanly. However I say *most of the time* as sometimes it misses bits meaning I need to rotate the opener again around the tin.
The plastic construction feels a bit flimsy and I'm not convinced this opener will enjoy a long life! The handles are quite short and I would have preferred them to have been slightly longer.
However this is a decent can opener that didn't cost the earth and works well most of the time.
