Tornado Can Opener is the amazing fast, safe and easy to use can opener that utilizes a unique and patented cutting design created to open any can, thick or thin and large or small. It enters the actual rim leaving no sharp edges.

The Claim

The Tornado Can Opener infomercial claims that Tornado Can Opener is an amazing kitchen helper that has twice the power of other can openers. Unlike traditional can openers that are hard to grip and easily slip, the Tornado Can Opener is very easy to use. Just place it on the can, press the button and in just seconds, the work is done for you. No more auto openers that don’t really cut. With Tornado Can Opener, you have a faster, easier and more powerful way to open any cans. Whether thick, thin and large or small, the product can open it all. The secret is the unique patented cutting design that enters the actual rim of the can leaving you with no sharp edge. Other can openers are dangerous because it cuts the top off resulting to sharp edges. It also comes with a magnetic removal system for easy disposable and its ergonomic design allows it to perfect fit into your palms. Tornado Can Opener is perfect for arthritis sufferers and anyone who has hand pains and weak grip strength.

How It Works

The Tornado Can Opener will open any can, no matter its size or thickness, quickly and easily. It offers two times the power that other can openers do. All you need to do is attach it to your can, press the button on its top, and it will do the necessary work on its own. Unlike most can openers that just cut the very top off, the Tornado Can Opener cuts down into the rim of your can, leaving no dangerous sharp edges. Once the can’s lid has been cut off, it attaches magnetically to this can opener. This means that you won’t need to dig around in the can for it and you’ll be able to push it off safely into the garbage can.

Positive Points

  • Ergonomic Design
  • Due to its ergonomic design, the Tornado Can Opener is easy to use, since it will fit nicely into your palm.

  • Easy On Hands
  • When you use the Tornado Can Opener, you won’t have to do any further work with your hands after you attach the opener and press the button. Therefore, this device is ideal for people who are suffering from arthritis, those who are experiencing hand pain, and those who have a weak grip.

  • Not Just For Cans
  • Besides opening standard cans, the Tornado Can Opener will also open the tops of bottles and jars, no matter whether these need to be popped off or unscrewed.

  • Attractive
  • Some standard can openers are quite ugly and colorless, but this particular one comes in an attractive red shade with a white bottom and button.

  • Safe For Older Children
  • Since using it does not require a person to put their fingers near any sharp blades, the device is safe for older children to use when opening their own cans.


  • Traditional Can Openers
  • Traditional metal can openers are often hard to attach, plus they frequently slip off, making you start the process all over again. Furthermore, they require a great deal of work with the hands, as they need to be cranked. People with hand pain, arthritis, or who simply lack strength will find them very difficult to use. After using one, they may experience pain for the rest of their day.

  • Automatic Can Openers
  • Automatic can openers that sit on your counter often take up space that you could be using for other things. If you have very limited counter space to begin with, this can become a huge issue. Some of them require electricity, and it can be hard to attach your can to them properly. When not properly attached, a can may fall off and splatter everywhere, creating a huge mess for you to clean.

  • Other One-touch Can Openers
  • The infomercial claims that other one-touch can openers are inferior to the Tornado Can Opener, since they tend to get stuck a lot.

Save Time

After you attach your Tornado Can Opener to a can and press the start-up button, this product will open your can in just seconds. With other openers, especially manual ones, it would take up to a couple of minutes to open the same can.

Won't Cut

I work in a concession stand where we go through many Nacho Cheese and Chili beans cans. I was looking for something to make our job easier. A one-touch button sounded great but the Tornado will not cut. It gets stuck as soon as it starts. It is not worth it.

Does not Work

This does not work as advertised. The battery lid flies off each time it stops, and the switch gets out of position when that happens so it stays on. The magnet never secured any lid off any can. Great idea, poor execution. Cheaply made. I'm going to Bed Bath, and Beyond to get my money back!

Waste of Money

Bad Experience

I used the can opener for the diary time and the idea is great. However the claim of no sharp edges is simply not true! I saved a picture of my cut finger along with the sharp edge of the lid.

This can opener is no good. The red cover barely stays on. Wouldn't work because one battery slot not tight enough to make contact with the other battery. Tried to return. No return info on the website listed on the instructions. Called the number & return info is read so fast no one can write it down. Just bent the battery casing and "made it work. " Cover still doesn't stay on. For $19.99 it is really poor quality & customer service just as bad. I will just use it "as is" for however long I can keep it going. Will never buy another! ! !
