Culinare MagiCan Opener
Advantages: strong, easy to use, smooth edges
Disadvantages: new design is not as good
My nan is addicted to kitchen gadets and in particular lakeland plastics. She always buys me little bits and pieces and this Magican opener was one of them.
The difference with this as opposed to your bog standard one is that it takes the lid off with the opener on the top rather than from the side.
It is made of heavy duty plastic, though it is light to hold. You clamp it with it horizontal, and then twist the large clip on the top several times, and it lifts the lid clean off. Then you just unclamp the two handles and you can through the lid straight in the recycling. It leaves a nice straight edge on the can left so theres less chance of hurting yourself accidentally on it.
It costs 50p on amazon which is an amazing bargin as I think in Lakeland it is a lot more expensive.
It is white and comes in a see through plastic packet which you just cut off. It has worked well for 4 years and still going strong.
It is easy to use even if you dont have strong wrists, I think it does a lot of the work for you. It states on the packet that its ideal for people who struggle with can openers because it moves smoothly and is really easy to use.
In other reviews apparently the design has changed slightly and it isnt as strong as it used to be. But if you can get one of the old design then I would definately recommend it!
Summary: It has worked well for 4 years!
