Sick of the 5-minute battle with the can opener and lid of the can? Me too, honestly. Opening a can is always a little unnecessarily stressful and takes a little more elbow grease than it should. But you aren’t beholden to the can openers that your mother and grandmother used — luckily, we’re in the 21st century, and there’s a top-rated electric can opener out there that’ll make your life so much easier.
Whether you’re the free spirit who could never say no to a hiking trip or have a soft spot for soups on a frosty night, you need a quality can opener. At the top of Amazon’s Bestseller List for electric can openers is a colorful, portable electric can opener from Kitchen Mama.
Kitchen Mama Electric Can Opener is a customer favorite, with more than 71,000 reviews and nearly 4.5 stars. The automatic can opener has a lid remover, a tilted (and improved) blade, and a magnet. With its ergonomic design, it’s perfect for on-the-go or as another tool in your kitchen cabinets to use in a pinch.
The brand recommends using it in three easy steps: Push to start, wait for the 360-degree rotation, and then push the button again — you’re done!
One Amazon customer said, “… We are all pleased with this opener and would certainly purchase more for gifts.” Another added that it’s a “creative genius,” saying, “I bought this for a special needs friend who only has one arm/hand available. He loves it. Can easily open cans because it works all by itself with the touch of a button.”
“A definite must-have… Great investment. I love it! I was using a hand can opener before and was getting more difficult as I aged. All you do with this opener is push a button, and one time around it’s open. What’s great about it is the lid is taken off with no sharp edges and can be put back on as a cover. No more finger cuts. I definitely would recommend it to everyone and the price was perfect,” said another shopper.
