One of Rösle's superb kitchen tools, this 8-inch can opener is brilliantly designed to provide safety and hygiene. Instead of cutting down through a lid, as conventional openers do, it smoothly cuts along the side of a can's rim. That means it doesn't leave behind a hazardous sharp edge and the lid can't fall into the can. It also means the opener never touches the can's contents. Like all Rösle tools, utensils, and Open Kitchen storage components, the opener is made primarily of 18/10 stainless steel, although this tool has a rugged plastic head. The round handle is stainless steel with a satin finish to conceal finger marks. The handle is sealed against water and has a hanging ring so the opener can be conveniently stored on a hook in the Open Kitchen system of Rösle basic rails and Gridwalls or hung on any hook or peg. The opener is sturdy, balanced, and exceptionally comfortable in the hand. All Rösle products carry a lifetime warranty against defects. The can opener should be hand washed to protect its cutting wheel. --Fred Brack
Designed only as Rösle can, this opener works smoothly and safely to open your cans. The cut at the side allows you to lift the lid easily. The can's edge will be blunt and smooth, so it will be very safe. Has hanging ring for easy storage.
