What is Safety Can Express?
It is a new as seen on tv “electric” motorized Can opener promoted by Telebrands with the focus on the SAFETY. The promoters of Safety Can Opener claim that the traditional can openers leave sharp edges that can cut your fingers. The lids opened by these “old” can openers tend to fall inside the can which can get real messy. The Safety Can Opener claims to remove the lids without sharp edges on the lid or on the can. The official website of Safety Can Express is SafetyCanExpress.com. The Safety Can Opener removes both “pop-tops” and regular cans.
How does the Safety Can Opener work?
Other traditional can openers use blades to cut open the lid of the can. This method of opening the lid leave razor sharp edges. The makers of Safety Can Express claim in their review that their can opener actually “unseals” the can from the sides, leaving smooth safe to touch edges (though we do not recommend touching).
The lids are placed on the can and are sealed airtight in the factory, the Safety Can Express uses a robust roller made from stainless steel driven by a powerful gears to “unseal” the lid without cutting into the lid. The result is no sharp edges because there isn’t any cut metal and the can opener does not come in contact with the food inside. The lid remains on the can after you are done with unsealing it and you just have to pop the lid to remove it from the can. The best part according to the promoters review is that the lid can be put back on the can to seal the leftover. The Safety Can Express has a liver at the top which you have to press to activate the can opening lever.
The Safety Can Express claims to open lids of broken and dented cans too, something which the other can openers can’t do. What’s more the Safety Can Express can work on cans of any size, big or small. So next time when you have to buy a Can Opener, prefer Telebrand’s Safety Can Opener over the traditional “unsafe” openers.
