Toucan is a hands-free can opener with an attractive black and white design. It'll open small, medium and large-sized cans, cutting each lid off so precisely that you'll be able to reuse it to store any leftovers. The device will also remove bottle caps and break the seal on jars so that you can twist off their lids without difficulty. Its blade is detachable, and you can safely clean it in the dishwasher. The Toucan is compact enough to fit in any drawer, so unlike some countertop can openers, it won't take up a great deal of space within your food preparation area.
If you suffer from arthritis or hand or joint pain, or you're simply tired of straining your hands while you open cans, the Toucan will make preparing food less of a bother for you. Once you attach this device to any can and press the large white button on top, it will open your can for you in seconds. Since the Toucan offers two times more power than some automatic can openers do, it will do its job smoothly without getting stuck along the way. By using it, you'll also reduce the risk of a can spilling, since spills often occur as someone struggles to open one manually.

How It Works
After you attach your Toucan to a can and press the power button, the device's blade clamps the can's lid from the outside, and smoothly makes its way around the can's circumference. As it does so, the Toucan's onboard magnet hangs onto the can's lid so that it doesn't fall into the can as it is removed.
- Small Cans
The Toucan will open your smallest cans, such as those containing fish or pet food, with precision.
- Medium Cans
Whether they contain vegetables, soup, sauce, stew, or something else, the Toucan will open your standard-sized cans much more quickly than a manual can opener is able to.
- Large Cans
The Toucan can even open your largest cans, such as ones that contain juice or diced peaches, without stalling or otherwise losing its effectiveness.
This device will also act as a bottle opener, removing the caps from beer bottles, coolers, or bottles of juice.
You can use your Toucan to break the seal on any jar's lid so you won't need to struggle to twist it off.
- Manual Can Openers
A manual can opener is usually able to open a can eventually, but using one requires a great deal of physical effort from the user. After you use one, even if you're strong, your hands and wrists may be sore. Moreover, if you have arthritis or other difficulties with your hands, you may not even have the strength to turn one all the way around a can.
- Other Automatic Can Openers
Hands-free automatic can openers that are similar to the Toucan are available, but these often get stuck as they move on their own, as they don't have as much power behind them as the Toucan. Having to restart one of these devices will add to your food preparation time, and may make the lid of the can you're opening come off in a jagged manner.
- Countertop Can Openers
Some larger can openers that sit on your countertop can open cans quickly, but they take up more space than the Toucan, and they are also harder to clean than a smaller device.
The black and white design that the Toucan features is bold and eye-catching. If you leave the device out, its appearance is unlikely to clash with your kitchen's decor.
Due to its compact nature, the Toucan is not difficult for most people to carry in one hand, and it'll fit in any kitchen drawer.
- Dishwasher Safe
To clean your Toucan, all you'll need to do is detach the blade and run it through the dishwasher. If you don't have a dishwasher, you can wash the blade by hand, too.
- Large Power Button
The power button on the Toucan is large and white, and is located on top of the device. Therefore, when you use the device for the first time, it won't be hard for you to find it.
- Can Reuse Lids
Since the Toucan's onboard magnet will hang onto a can's lid as it opens the can, the lid won't fall into the can and get covered in food, so you'll be able to reuse it.
- Be Careful With Children
Since the Toucan has a sharp blade, it is not safe for small children to use, and you should supervise older children as they use it.
- Don't Touch Moving Blade
Before you detach the Toucan's blade in order to clean it, ensure that it has stopped moving, so you don't accidentally cut yourself.
