The first thing that pops into my mind when I see an electric can opener is a quote from a certain movie:
“Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical can openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future. Choose life.”
...And yes, I see the irony. But the times have changed, and nowadays, an electrical tin opener is actually a good investment.
Particularly as the epidemic sweeps the world, canned foods are selling like crazy. I, for one, always keep canned tomato extract, diced tomatoes, -like a good italian-, plus a few other things. But this thing has helped me see that you can find pretty much anything canned.
And that’s why I chose to get the Cuisinart CCO-50BKN Deluxe Electric Can Opener. I chose this one because Cuisinart has never disappointed ever since I bought a coffee machine. I was on a budget, and ended up turning to Cuisinart instead of the usual brand, and I was pleasantly surprised.
This can opener is super easy to use and it’s super resistant. I’ve had it for a little over a year, and I use it everyday, without a few lazy sunday exceptions. The thing is still like new. It’s great, as I’ve never had something for so long without it getting jammed, breaking, or some other thing happening to it.
So far, the Cuisinart Electric Can Opener is probably my favorite kitchen utensil to use. It’s simple, sturdy, and satisfying. I give it a solid 10/10!
