A Krups Can Opener for a Modern Kitchen
The can opener has definitely come a long way from its simple metal predecessors. Today there are so many kinds of can openers ranging from manual classic ones to electric models. Bladed can openers are still the most popular openers in most parts of the world. And most people who still use traditional can openers have come to accept that getting cuts from an opened can’s sharp edges is simply a way of life with enjoying canned food.
But then there are other people who have deviated from the norm and started enjoying the convenience of a bladeless can opener. One particular model that stands out in this niche is the Krups can opener. Krups offers three different kinds of can openers for their customers; for this particular review we will discuss the Krups 404 Open Master, which is the most popular and widely available model from the brand.
The Krups 404 Open Master can opener comes from the lineup of a company which has been making quality kitchen accessories since 1846. Krups was one of the first in the industry to come up with a blade-free and stand alone design. The bladeless design has a number of important benefits:
When you open the can using this model, it leaves no jagged or serrated edges which can cause cuts to your finger. The opener slides smoothly around the top part of any can size. No blade means that the can’s contents do not get stuck on the can opener and so there is no danger of rusting or permanently soiling the opener. The stand alone design allows the user to open cans easily atop the kitchen counter or table. People with weak hands or who are suffering from rheumatism or arthritis will enjoy this particular convenience. The Krups opener also looks very sleek. The simple yet striking design and monochrome color will not look out of place in a fuss free, modern kitchen.
Although the Krups can opener has been around for almost a decade, and has scores of loyal users, its bladeless mechanism is not infallible. It will wear out and need replacement in a few years. Some customers also find that it takes practice to maneuver the can opener to the correct angle for precise opening. However, classic standby can openers will also fall prey to this particular predicament. The Krups is still commendable for being innovative, eliminating injury risks, and being ultra-easy to use. It will definitely be a worthy addition to a modern kitchen. It makes for a great gift for a child who is moving into his own pad, or a couple who are starting their new home.
