Product Description

Product Description

Boston Warehouse has created fun in the kitchen with their new Animal House products. The everyday basic kitchen gadgets are built for serious cooking¿with a smirk. The Toucan can opener will have your family squawking with delight with each newly opened can. The Toucan looks good, but also gets the job done with its ergonomic design, soft non-slip grip and stainless steel cutting blades.

Amazon.com

The bright colors and whimsical postures of Animal House utensils turn any kitchen into a zoo. Kids especially enjoy helping out when they get to use a monkey vegetable peeler, parakeet garlic press, or this toucan can opener. Designed by Christopher Raia Studio, the toucan features stainless-steel eyes and an orange-and-black beak formed by the high-density plastic handles. The stainless-steel cutting blades open a can with ease, and an embedded magnet lifts the sharp lid safely off the can. A great gift along with other fun utensils from the Animal House menagerie, the toucan opener most likely won't need more than an occasional wipe with a sponge. --Ann Bieri

Having a love for kitschy kitchen utensils when my current, boring can opener broke i jumped on ordering this one. However due to the curving of the toucan "beak" you can't press the handles close enough together to get a tight enough grip on the can to open it. Sadly had to return and even more sadly purchased another plain, boring can opener. But at least it opens cans...

Bought it because it was made of stainless steel (the metal part of it). Worked good for a couple of months while getting tougher to turn, then failed. Needs to be better designed to get a good bite on the can and beef up the metal parts. Now it's only good as a show piece.

This adorable opener is heavy and seems sturdy and well-made, but the first time I used it it seemed a little off and didn't work smoothly. By the third can (fire-roasted tomatoes, as it happened) it was no longer doing the job at all. It starts off great, although you have to squeeze awfully hard, but then after an inch or so it starts skipping and jumping. The only way to get the can open (when you have just given your old Oxo can opener to your son to take back to college and the Toucan is now the only opener in the house) is to keep going around and trying to start fresh on the skipped places, and then when you've got most of it done, to pry the lid off of there with the point of a knife, being careful about those jagged edges.

My daughter ordered this for me as a gift, since I liked the blue jay corkscrew (same company) her brother bought me so much. I wish I hadn't kept it to myself that the corkscrew doesn't work all that great, either (although it's not a total fail like the toucan).

looks very cute but first time I used it the spring jumped out
makes opening cans a chore and I hate it
it's like this bird is mocking me (even though it's a toucan, not a mocking bird)

I've bought this can opener 2 times. The first one I had lasted less than a year. Thought I did something wrong and broke it. It just wouldn't turn anymore and I couldn't loosen it. So, I bought another one, thinking must be me. The second one has done the same thing. I'm so disappointed. I love this line and have many pieces. I just can't figure it out. If anyone has any suggestions, please post. Otherwise, I'll just have to use my very plain, very boring can opener.

It's so cute! BUT...it doesn't work. It requires superhuman strength to apply the proper pressure in order to puncture the can lid all the way around. If you falter for even a millisecond, the opener will skip a spot, leaving you with a perforated (and incredibly sharp) can lid. Dangerous and not functional in the least. Form follows function FAIL.

I love the style, but seriously the crappiest can opener i have ever bought. It won't do it's job at all. I hate to part with it because it makes me smile, but seriously Boston Warehouse, how dare you charge $15 for a can opener with form but no function? You should be ashamed.

I'm a fan of Boston Warehouse's Animal House products, and this can opener is not the only Animal House products I own. So, after buying the Toucan can opener, I gotta say that products of Boston Warehouse are a mixed bag of hit and miss.

The "beaks" of this Toucan can opener are very hard to open/close. I have never owned a can opener that requires so much strength to separate or close the handles!

See the shiny black head of the Toucan? Don't trust the photoshopped picture on Amazon. Scratches are everywhere on this can opener, so much that I suspected it was a used item. Speaking of not looking like pictured, the beautiful orange "beaks" of the opener is actually this awful brownish beige.

I like the toucan design so much, but I had to return it because I couldn't stand how ugly and nonfunctional it was.
