There are a few ways to open up cans of food and thankfully these days most of them come with those pull tops, which I have to say makes life a great deal easier in the kitchen. The days of reaching for a can opener are mostly gone, well at least you would think that. There are however still some manufacturers who make what are called sealed tins.
There is nothing worse than trying to get a can opened and not having some way of doing that. Now you can of course buy a manual one, but I think they are just a pain to use. This is especially true for people who don’t have a strong grip or perhaps suffer from arthritic hands. It is also the reason that they came up with the idea of making these more convenient and simple to use.
I hope that you find the information useful.

No 1 Choice – Kenwood CO600 Electric Can Opener
This model from Kenwood receives the highest rating by actual buyers over at Amazon. It is also well priced and I think offers good value for money.
For those of you who like to have white kitchen appliances then this one will tick that box. It also acts as a knife sharpener and a useful bottle opener so three handy tools for the price of one.
This product is relatively new to the UK market and buyers at Amazon have rated this at 4.8 out of 5 stars. Do I need to say any more? That is a very high rating and it is clearly liked as a number one choice for many people.
With hands free operation this one is a good pick as a can opener and the other features are just a very nice bonus. You can read more reviews on this one at Amazon by clicking here.
No 2 Choice – Kenwood Electric Can Opener CO606 Home & Garden Can Openers
This particular model in the Kenwood range is similar to the one above but comes in a stainless steel look. So if your own kitchen is designed to suit that style then this model may well be the one for you.
Personally I would have expected a stainless steel model to be the most expensive, so I think this one priced at around £21 is good value. In terms of ratings this one gets a very high 4.6 out of 5 stars, which is an excellent rating and right up there with the best of them
Like the one above this on can also be used as a bottle opener and a knife sharpener. This one can also be used as a free standing option if you prefer that. This one does take a little bit of practise to learn where and how to place the can. Once you get that then it operates very well indeed and does a good job.

No 3 Choice – Kenwood 3-in-1 Can Opener with Knife Sharpener and Bottle Opener
This model from Kenwood is the Best Seller over at Amazon UK. It does I have to say look very stylish and the chrome look is appealing to many buyers.
With well over 1,000 buyer reviews it is easy t see why this one is a very popular choice for many, though as you can see it does not get the highest rating. That said a rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars is still a very high rating and has remained consistent for years.
It can open most sizes and shapes of cans and it can also be used hands free which is handy in the kitchen. It is also pretty easy to use and the magnetic lid holder makes it really useful
This is a perfect solution for a busy kitchen or for anyone who has difficulty using a manual can opener.
And finally we have this option and another nice looking choice it is.
No 4 Choice – Kenwood CO600 3-in-1 Can Opener with Knife Sharpener and Bottle Opener
This third model from Kenwood is at a slightly cheaper price that those that I have reviewed so far. Please do not let the price put you off as this is a good quality product at an affordable price.
This model has an automatic start and stop which is operated by pressing down on the lever and that also makes it easy to use. The reason this one is cheaper is because it is not made from metal.
This one costs around £15 depending on where you make your purchase, and it has a very high rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars.
The white colour will also make this one suitable for many kitchens.
No 5 Choice – Morphy Richards 46718 Multifunction Can Opener
And last by no means least is a model from Morphy Richards. As you can see from the list above Kenwood really do dominate the UK market when it comes to electric can and bottle openers.
This one from Morphy Richards however does bring something different to the market place. It is also more expensive than most of the Kenwood options at around £25.
With a rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars though, many people make this their number one choice. That is because this one does much more than just open cans.
It can also be used to help remove difficult tight lids, open up jars that are sealed very tightly and can even open that awful hard plastic you get on some products. So as you can see this kitchen tool is a lot more than a basic can opener.
If you have never used one of these before, then you will find that they are very simple to use. It does take a little bit of time to work out exactly where to place the tin or can. Once you figure that out then these can openers are plain sailing to use.
