Culinare One Touch Automatic Can Opener
Advantages: Fun, Easy to use, sturdy, not messy, safe
Disadvantages: none so far!
This review is on the Culinare One Touch can opener, which I recently purchased on a whim over the Christmas period. This little alien-pod-esque gadget comes from the One touch range from Culinare. I originally bought it due to my love of sci-fi and the product's space age looking design, but found it to be much more useful than I originally anticipated as I will discuss in this review.
::::: The product :::::
The Culinare One Touch can opener is quite a little magic gadget to have in your house. This little beauty opens cans at the touch of a button without any fuss or mess, so you can just pop the top off and get on with things without worrying about cutting yourself, faffing around with blunt tin openers or getting your fingers all messy trying to fish the inside lid out. The can opener takes two AA batteries and works completely automatically. It comes in a white, sleek, futuristic looking design (a little phallic actually as my mother pointed out!). This means it looks very smart around your kitchen. You just set it at a slight angle on the can you want opened, press the button and watch it go to work. Even if the can opener gets jammed, there's a little winding tool to set it back on track, but I've not had to use this yet and have encountered no problems with batteries like some reviewers on other sites have reported. It really is quite a fun little piece of kit which I'll explain more in depth later in the review.
::::: The Effect :::::
Well, I must say I was quite tickled the first time I saw this little white thing go to work. It just whizzes round your can lid, and even goes back over places that didn't quite open the first time round, then stops ready for you to pull the lid off and get about your business. You may be one of these people, like me, who hates getting there fingers dirty fishing around inside tins of beans trying to pull your freshly opened lid out, but the One Touch has eliminated the need for this, as it actually cuts the whole of the top of the can off rather than just the inside lide, which makes things much tidier and simpler. I am often scared when watching my aging mother open cans that she is going to cut herself, so I was pleased to find that when this can opener has finished, it leaves no sharp edges on your tins. I am much happier leaving my mother alone in the house with this than with conventional can openers qas she can get quite angry and reckless when she can't get things to work- this thing doesn't only open cans, it makes for a calmer family environment in my case!
::::: The Price:::::
I purchased my can opener for £20, although I can't remember where from. I think it may have been a collectables home store. Amazon.com are currently selling this on offer for only £12.98, which really is a bargain as I thought it was good value for £20- it is a really magic piece of gadgetry.
::::: My Opinions :::::
If you hadn't gathered already, I love this! It simple, clean, fun to watch (trust me, you'll giggle!) and looks great. Couldn't really ask for more!
Summary: Probably one of my favourite simple little home gadgets ever
