I never had an electric can opener! I know many people do but I wonder how you keep them clean. When I was a little girl we were guests at someone’s home for dinner. I saw the wife open cat food, dog food and some other unsavory items and then open up a few cans of fruit and vegetables without washing the can opener. I tiptoed over to take a look at the can opener and I literally gagged. I knew better than to open my big fat yapper. But believe me I didn’t eat one bite of that food and when got home I gave my parents an earful! To this day I shudder when I think of that disgusting can opener encrusted with debris.
That’s why I’ve always used a manual can opener. They may be difficult to use but I figured that was the priced I had to pay for a product that was easy to keep clean and wouldn’t make anyone deathly ill from a disease I couldn’t pronounce. When I heard about the Nogent Super Kim Can Opener I was a little intrigued. It’s so darned tiny and since I was in the market for a new can opener I was hot to give this cute little sucker a whirl! Who doesn’t love a kitchen gadget that takes up only a teeny-tiny amount of space in your kitchen drawer?
I was Blessed to receive a Nogent Super Kim Can Opener for review.
So long old beat up can opener! Hello gorgeous! Yes I tossed my old relic already. The Nogent Super Kim Can Opener is small, lightweight and easy to use and takes up barely any room in the drawer. Why the heck have I waited (I’m embarrassed to admit) 28 years to buy a new can opener? Although impeccably clean, my old can opener was dull, cumbersome and outdated. The handles were long and hard to grip and required way to much hand strength.
Nogent Super Kim Can Opener is really easy to use! Here’s a quickie demonstration!
The Nogent Super Kim Can Opener is very easy to use no matter what size can you are opening.
Whether you have the hands of a lumber jack or are suffering from joint or bone ailments, you’ll appreciate the ease of use of this neat little kitchen gadget. There are no handles to get in the way and in place of the usual cutting wheel there’s a triangular tempered carbon-steel blade that automatically engages as you turn the cushioned butterfly-shaped crank, piercing the top of the can and locking in place.
The can is opened quickly and easily and you’re left with a can with a dull upper edge, which is much safer. And the Nogent Super Kim Can Opener works really well on rectangular cans too! Regular can openers are a total disaster at that. Price ~ $15
The Nogent Super Kim Can Opener may be purchased online at Lee Valley Tools.
