One Touch Can Opener is a completely automatic and hands free but is it really any better than a regular automatic can opener? Being a kitchen gadget freak myself, I was curious if it lived up to the infomercials claims.
Just put the One Touch on top of the can then slide the lip of the can into the One-Touch notch and press the button.
No sharp edges after cutting.
Magnet holds onto the lid for easy disposal.
One Touch Can Opener Put to the Test
In a number of different video reviews I noticed that it works reasonally well. The problem is that most consumers seem to have problems with it a week or two later. Here are the results.
- It didn’t work well on industrial sized cans.
- They found that it worked best on cans smaller than 50 ounces.
- Not intended for use on cans without rims or odd corners.
- A bit on the slow side compared to other can openers.
- The magnet doesn’t always pick up the cans lid up.
- It struggles with dented cans and you may need to give it a shove to get it back on the can.
- If the can is larger and hasn’t finished opening the entire can before it gets to the end, you can hit the button again. It will continue cut around the can for another 20 seconds and then automatically shuts itself off.
- You’ll spend alot on replacing the batteries. Some reports of it dieing after the first 2 weeks of operation.
- Some reports of the One Touch stalling on the can before it went all the way around. Also it was impossible to remove it.
One Touch Can Opener works for some but not all. If you want to take a chance on this item you may want to buy it in stores that sell As Seen on TV products such as Walmart, Walgreens or Bed Bath and Beyond. Then you can return it easily if something goes wrong.
