Toucan

5 Votes

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.

The Claim

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.

Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Toucan is $10.00 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Toucan by paying the extra shipping fee of $6.99 for a total price of $23.98.

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.

Uses

  1. Small Cans

    The Toucan will open your smallest cans, such as those containing fish or pet food, with precision.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Bottles

    This device will also act as a bottle opener, removing the caps from beer bottles, coolers, or bottles of juice.

  5. Jars

    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.

Alternatives

  • 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.

Positive Points

  • Attractive

    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.

  • Compact

    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.

Warnings

  • 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.

Not worth the Money, Does Not Work as Advertised

Tv advertisement looks great too bad the product does not perform in real life, TV makes everything work great.

No Good

Bought one, put in batteries, would not open anything. Would not want to be the bank backing this disaster. Tried on 3 diff. Types of cans.
This thing is beyond pathetic.

Its Ok

I did not buy of the TV Bogo for ten dollars. I got mine at the As Seen On TV Store. I paid twenty dollars for one opener. Because of the strong gear claim I bought high quality alkalide batteries. Tried it out, it does work, however you need to help it along. Its not as hands free as they claim. But there are no sharp edges. Although it don't work quite like advertised, its still it good for opening, and definitely better than the old crank openers. Worth the ten dollars bogo. Not twenty dollars for one in a store.
