Open 7 is a lightweight, portable and ergonomically designed can opener. Besides cans of any shape or thickness, it'll also assist you with opening plastic bags, bottles ( glass or plastic ) and jars. It's a hand-powered device, so you won't need to rely on electricity or batteries when using it, but unlike some manual can openers, it has a handle designed for comfort and won't strain your wrist. Open 7 comes in sets of two individual, yet identical openers.

How It Works
This device will latch onto a can of any shape or size and allow you to open it in seconds. Once you've hooked it to a particular can, all you'll need to do is pull up on the silver lever and twist it until the device has smoothly cut all the way around the can. ( Note that if the lever isn't available to you, you're likely using the device upside-down. ) To open a plastic bottle instead, you can simply attach the device to the top and twist it without pulling up the lever. Each device also has a tooth on one side that will help you open a variety of other containers, such as glass bottles and jars.
- Red and Silver
Each Open 7 comes in a color combination of red and silver, so you'll likely find yours easy to spot in your kitchen drawer, regardless of how crowded it is.
- Lightweight and Portable
This device is not significantly longer, wider or heavier than a standard can opener, and in fact may be smaller and lighter than some. Hence, it won't take up much room in your luggage if you want to bring it along on a trip to the cottage, a campsite, or some other vacation spot.
- Extra Large Handle
Each of these devices has an extra-large handle that's been shaped with the principles of ergonomics in mind, so it won't easily fall out of your hand or dig into it while you're opening something.
- Two Per Set
With each Open 7 device, you'll get a second identical one, too. You may want to keep the second one as a spare in case yours is dirty or somehow gets misplaced, but if not, you could always give it to a family member or friend.
- Eliminates Need to Touch Cans
The uncooked or unprepared food oozing out of cans as you open them can sometimes seem gross, but fortunately, when you use Open 7, you won't need to touch the cans you're opening at all. Even after this device has opened up a particular can, the can's lid will remain hooked to it until you shake it off into your waste receptacle.
- Cuts Smoothly
As it opens a can for you, this device cuts smoothly, leaving no jagged edges on the can's lid or on the can itself. That means if you do decide to touch the can's lid for some reason ( such as if it falls on the floor ), you won't cut your bare fingers.
- Replaces Other Devices
Currently, you may have quite a full kitchen drawer, what with a standard can opener, a standard bottle opener, a plastic bag opener, and so on. However, you may be able to get rid of some of these devices and free up some space after obtaining the Open 7, as it'll open so many different things.
- Standard Can Opener
It's often physically taxing to use a standard can opener, as you need to keep cranking it while squeezing it hard enough that it remains positioned correctly against your can. Plus, even if you do this to the best of your ability, some manual can openers just aren't sharp enough to cut through some cans' thick steel or aluminum. You likely won't be able to use one to effectively open a bottle, jar, or bag, either.
- Electric Can Opener
An electric can opener that stands on its own will make opening a can easier on you, but if the power goes out, you won't be able to use yours. The same goes for the battery-operated variety if you run out of batteries and don't have time to go to the store. Moreover, some large cans are too tall to fit under the lip of some of these openers, which means to open them, you'll need to position either can or opener in a potentially unsafe way.
- Supervise Children
Although the Open 7 cuts in a smoother fashion than a standard manual can opener, a child should still be supervised while using one, as there are exposed sharp parts they could cut themselves on.
- Wash Regularly
Like a standard opener shold be, this device must be regularly rinsed off between uses, or else old food could build up on it, potentially causing food poisoning later.
When you've got one device like the Open 7 that will help you open all the containers that you need to in minutes, you'll be able to prepare a meal much more quickly than usual. There'll be no more struggling with cans, bottles, jars, and dull, ill-fitting devices for up to a quarter of an hour before you head to the dinner table.
