There's another gadget out there that's begging for space in your kitchen cabinet or drawer. It's called the One Touch Can Opener
and you wanted us to find out if it’s worth your $20. So, Kevin Kelly put it to the test to find out if it is a Deal or a Dud.
A group of rambunctious seniors has high hopes for the one touch can opener.
“I think for people with arthritis this would be a real big help,” one of the seniors said.
After reading the instructions we put the One Touch to work on a traditional size can.
On the first try, it wouldn't start. So we checked the batteries, and tried again. This time, the engine cranked up.
“I smell it but I don't see anything.”
Eventually the One Touch cycle ends and the lid is free. There's a magnet on the opener that's supposed to remove the lid. That didn't happen. Now let's see how the one touch can opener handles a large can, which was no problem
How about a small can? Perfect! This time, the magnet pulled up the lid. But how does the one touch can opener compare to the gadgets you already have?
Time for a little competition. The electric can opener is our winner finishing in just 8 seconds. The manual opener came in second at 11 seconds and the One Touch is lagging behind finally finishing after 22 seconds.
Though the one touch came in last, it still made June Keys flip her lid. “I think mine was best. It was easy to handle. One Touch was slow but sure,” she said. “I'd say it's a deal.”
If you think the One Touch will come in handy in your kitchen you can find it at Walgreen’s or online
for about $20.
