Product Description

Product Description

This new in box can opener attachment is easy to use and cuts clean. Just attach can opener to your mixer's accessory hub and off you go. A built-in magnet prevents lid from dropping into can contents. It is designed exclusively for use with ALL KitchenA

Amazon.com

Using your stand mixer to open tin cans seems beneath the machine's power, but then again, the stand mixer is all about versatility. The can opener attachment is a single, hefty piece of steel; attach it to the mixer's motor hub and position the can under the cutting blade. Pull the handle up and over and the can locks in place. Turn the power to speed 2 and watch it go. The stand mixer's weight balances heavy cans and its height accommodates tall ones. And while it's completely practical, its greater appeal is that it's fun to use. You might find yourself opening cans just so you can watch them twirl. --Betsy Danheim

Customer Reviews

If it manages to open the can at all, it will be after the can has gone around 3 or 4 times.
Love My Labs
I really like this can opener because it doesn't take any additional space in my kitchen and it has the strength of my kitchen aid mixer.
Ruth Palmer
It doesn't open the can completely leaving a very dangerous and sharp lid for me to pull off.

This is the attachment I use more than any other on my kitchenaid. In fact, I leave this attached. Every part of this is made with quality steel and the item is surprizingly heavy for its size. It never has a problem opening ANY can, even ones with dented rims, or those somewhat rectangular with pull tabs that broke off instead of opening, and the magnet holds the lid when you remove the can. It takes about 5 seconds to open any can and is easy to clean with a damp paper towel without removing it from the mixer though it comes off easier than any other attachment I have. It stands out much farther than I expected (about 4 inches) from the machine, but I suppose that this is so the can won't come near the bowl or shield. It makes using the cover difficult to put on and even more difficult to remove, so I gave up on the cover. I haven't found a better can opener either manual or electric. I highly reccomend this.

We have had our Kitchen Aid Can Opener for over 3 years, and it is one tought piece of metal. This heavy duty can opener can handle the larger cans with no problem. Unlike most can openers we have owned, this one can take the abuse. Before we purchased this attachment, we were replacing can openers every 4 to 6 months. This is top notch, performing like a commercial piece of equiptment. It doesn't take up any counter space, and is well worth the price we paid. We expect it to last as long as our Kitchen Aid Mixer. The last Kitchen Aid mixer we purchased lasted over 22 years.

This attachment is well worth the money! I shop in bulk, and this can opener opens the larger cans with ease.
I leave it attached and now that I use it almost daily I don't feel so bad about not using my expensive mixer as much. Attaches easily and you can tell it is quality.
After having an under counter, (unsightly) a manual,(wrist problems) and a cordless can opener (battery died after 6 mos.)
I refuse to use anything else.

My family and I are long time KitchenAid users. I have been using my mixer for 30 years, with the can opener attachment. I only remove it when I want to use a different attachment or clean the can opener. It works great! I can hardly cook a meal without it (is it a two can or three can dinner tonight??). If you leave the can opener attached, just remember to lift the handle so it is not in the cutting position.

I love this attachment! I have not found it hard to use at all.
In fact, my mother loves it so much, she has requested I buy her one. Prior to this I had an under cabinet one which was ok but unsightly.
This attachment goes on easily, and operates easily. If cleaning is needed, it is very convenient. I keep mine on the mixer all the time, only removing it when I use it to mix. Note: The directions caution not to leave in place while using the mixing bowl.

This is the most powerful can opener i have ever used! We also appreciate one less appliance sitting on the counter--we just leave the can opener attached to the mixer and only have to take it off when we use another attachment. Easy to use, and I expect it to last forever (or at least as long as the mixer).

I received this as a christmas present from my in-laws, and I really like it. We used to have an electric opener that did the job, but it was loud and couldn't handle any big size coffee can. I like this one because it can open any size can with ease, it makes a smooth rim around the interior of the can (no cut spatulas), and it's actually very quiet compared to most electric ones. It's also really great when you have to open several cans in succession, because it's just so fast.
I think the only thing you could improve on it would be to have a turn handle on the back, in case the power goes out :)

I have now been thru two of these in three years. It is a waste of money as it has no durability. Two of these openers have failed after less than two years of use each, opening an average of 3 cans per week. When it works it is great, but after a while the mechanism deteriorates and becomes useless. KitchenAid was nice enough to replace the first one which had just gone out of warranty and now less than two years later the replacement has failed. After the first one failed I purchased the OXO Steel Can Opener (http://www.amazon.com/Oxo-58081-SteeL-Can-Opener/dp/B00004OCMM/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1222651468&sr=8-1)to use while my wife used the KitchenAid.

My OXO is going strong while the KitchenAid failed. If my OXO should ever fail, no problem, lifetime warranty; a phone call will get you a replacement.

Save your money and do not buy this opener.
