Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener Review

When it comes to can openers, many people overlook them. If you’re attempting to open a can of salmon and the blade won’t penetrate the metal, you’ll have to poke and prod at the lid until the contents of the can are freed before you understand you need to update yours. That’s why having a no-touch electric can opener like the Cuisinart Deluxe May Opener on hand can save a lot of time.

For those who have been let down by other can openers (like myself), you may be hesitant about how effectively this one works (like I was). As a result, I put it through its paces to ensure that it works properly for you. What I discovered after using this can opener to open a variety of cans ranging in size from 6 ounces to 28 ounces.

What We’re Into

  • Doesn’t stop or leap while opening cans.
  • Operation with no need for holding a device
  • Plugs in, eliminating the need for batteries.

What Isn’t Right

  • Counter space is required.
  • When cleaning the lever, the blade is revealed.
  • The lid is left with sharp edges.

Setup is straightforward.

The Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener is ready to use out of the box. All I had to do was connect it into the power and put up a can that needed to be opened to start it working. It’s a cinch.

It’s a little heavy and takes up a lot of counter space for a can opener, but it’s worth it.

The design is well-thought out, although it’s a little on the large side.

This can opener was thoughtfully designed to provide just the features you need. It comes with a top-mounted lever that contains the blade and a magnetic grip that secures the can. On the bottom of the can opener, there’s a fixed gear and two guide posts that made it simple to place the can precisely where it needed to be.

It’s a little tall at 9.35 inches, but the additional room is for longer cans (anyone want a giant chili?) To fit different can sizes, I would have like it to be a bit less than the usual height, but I see the need of it being tall enough—better to be too tall than too short.

Even as a can opener, it’s an eye sore because of its size and heft. But at least it’s light enough to carry about. From the outside, I assumed it would be heavy, but it just weighs a little over 2.5 pounds, making it simple to stow away in a cupboard when it’s not being used.

Features: Automatic opening with no need to use your hands

Even though there aren’t many frills on the Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener, there are a few noteworthy ones. The one-touch design is the most convenient. Lift the lever, place the blade within the rim of the can, then push down once to start the can opener. The magnet and the lever keep the can in place, and the cycle will automatically stop when the can is opened, so you can entirely let go and let it do its job.

To save time, you might start the can opener and go about your kitchen duties at the same time. When I was opening a can of tuna, I was able to swiftly grab the mayo and the spices while the can was still opening, and although it may only save a few seconds, every second is valuable.

It performs well in terms of speed and quietness

Performance is where the Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener truly excels. There were no glitches or “jumping” with this can opener, unlike other can openers that have this problem. With even a little dent in the can, this can opener was able to remove the lid quickly and accurately.

It also works with cans of any size. The can opener worked nicely with all three sizes of cans I tested: a conventional 12-ounce can, a big 28-ounce can, and a tiny 6-ounce tomato paste can. Because it opened the can from the top rather than the side, this electric can opener left some jagged edges. I kept the lid connected to the magnet while I was emptying my can and then gently removed it and placed it inside the can for simple, and safe, disposal thereafter.

It’s simple to clean thanks to the lever’s detachable design.

Since the blade cuts into the top of the can, it can come into contact with the contents of the can you’re opening—something that happened a few times, especially when I was opening tomato sauce. Fortunately, the can opener doesn’t require much cleaning after you’ve cleaned your plates and scooped up the leftovers into the food bins. The blade may need a short wash if this occurs.

For this reason, Cuisinart designed the blade lever to be detachable. To clean it, just raise the lever and remove it out of the base. Then wash it in hot, soapy water. Alternatively, you may run it through the dishwasher, but I found it more easy to give it a quick wipe off and pat it dry.

Be aware that after the lever is removed, the blade is exposed and very sharp. A safety feature to cover the blade while cleaning would’ve been nice, but it’s all about being cautious.

The can opener worked well with both normal and 28-ounce cans.

Price: On the higher end

There is a $29.99 price tag on the Cuisinart Electric Can Opener, but I believe it is worth it because of how well it works. There are obviously less costly can openers available, but the cutting power may be compromised—an unwanted compromise.

There are a few additional possibilities available.

Because it costs less than half as much as a Cuisinart, the Hamilton Beach electric can opener includes a knife sharpener built in and a place to stow the cable when not in use. Cuisinart Electric Can Opener: This Hamilton Beach opener, like the Cuisinart, features a hands-free design and an auto shut-off option.

Because this appliance is portable, it can be stored in the kitchen drawer when not in use, making it ideal for those who aren’t sure whether or not they need an electric can opener on the counter. There is no automated function — you need to touch the button for on and then again for off when the can is opened — but the performance is solid.

Final Verdicts

If you have the room, it’s a winner.

In terms of performance, the Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener is one of the best out there. After that, all you need is a place to store its mass.

The Cuisinart Deluxe Can Opener is an excellent choice if you’re ready to give up some counter or cabinet space.
