Buy a Designer Can Opener online

So why should a can opener be just a utilitarian design based on function only? Why can't a basic everyday kitchen implement be beautiful or sensuous to the touch; not an implement to be hidden away in a drawer, only to come out when needed, but an item to be displayed and admired?

Well actually, it can be!

Writing in 1965, Michael Wolff announced: "it will be a great day when cutlery and furniture designs (to name but two) swing like the supremes." - Well, It must be a great day because below is a selection of beautifully designed can openers. When you mention the word 'designer', some people automatically think 'expensive'. Ok, I accept that sometimes designer items are overpriced, but not the can openers that I have listed, which are all good value; and yes, they may cost a bit more than your run-of-the-mill opener but then these openers are that much better. The word 'design' is synomynous with good taste and consumer appeal, and these can openers are dripping with appeal. The artistic quality and suberb functional design make these openers from Jamie Oliver, Rosle, Zyliss, Chef'n, Starfrit, Cuisipro, Kun Rikon and OXO a must-have.

Rosle Can Opener

 

Made of satin finished 18/10 stainless steel with a rugged plastic head,this brilliantly designed Rosle can opener provides both a safe and hygienic operation. Unlike a conventional opener which cut down through the lid, the Rosle moves safely along the side of the rim, effectively separating the can lid at the seam. This ensures smooth, blunt edges on both lid and can, and because the can opener never touches the contents of the can there is no cross contamination of food. It is strong and very comfortable in the hand, and like all Rosle products carries a lifetime warranty against defects.

Rosle supply a full range of matching kitchen utensils which can be conveniently hooked on the Open Kitchen system of Rösle basic rails and Gridwalls.

Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Safety Lid Lifter

The Kuhn Rikon lid lifter works by breaking the seal between the lid and the can; it does not cut the can so there are no sharp edges. It works with a knurled wheel, rather than a cutting wheel, which separates the lid from the can. Because of the different operating method it may take a little getting used to, but don't let this put you off; because 81 out of 98 Amazon customer reviews gave the Kuhn Rikon a top 5 stars out of 5. It has gained a lot of extremely happy users.

Other benefits of the Lid lifter are that it never touches the contents of the can, and is ideal for both left and right handed operation.

Customer Review: "My wife and I find this to be the best can opener we have ever used; we even use it to open cans that have lift top lids (such as Del Monte canned sliced peaches). Why this can opener is so good is because of how it works and the quality of the product. It is made like a Swiss watch; there is no slop in the movement..."

The Kuhn rikon Deluxe Safety Lid Lifter is available in red, black, and green.
