After many years our electric can opener had died. We had a manual one as a backup, but Tony and I both had so much trouble trying to get it to work, that we tried another one. Tony can get that manual one to work but I can’t, I have to squeeze so hard that it hurts my wrist. When I saw that Bartelli was looking for reviewers of their Soft Edge Automatic Can Opener, I applied right away.
Thankfully they selected me and provided me with an Amazon code to order the blue version for free. When it arrived I quickly ran to the store to get some AAA batteries which are not included so I could test it out.
At first I was making it out to be harder than it really was. You simply mount the can opener on the can, press the button to turn on, let can opener swivel around the can, press the button again to turn off the can opener when it has made a complete circle. Because the can stays flat on the counter, I don’t have to worry about any contents spilling out, especially on larger cans like when I used a stand up electric can opener.
This product cuts around the side of the can to eliminate sharp and dangerous edges, creating an easily resealable lid with a smooth edge. That makes it easy to keep food covered while preparing a meal.
This is perfect for those with carpal tunnel issues, arthritis or any other hand pain, as it requires no manual labor.
You can purchase this can opener in blue, but it is also available in purple and red. Check the widget below for current Amazon pricing.
