Just about everything's cordless these days. There are cordless phones, cordless razors. We now have the wireless mouse. People just don't like to be tethered anymore. So today, there's even a cordless can opener. It's another entry in Black & Decker's "Gizmo" line of kitchen products. And this week, we put their Gizmo Cordless Can Opener to the "Does It Work?" test.
It's the cordless can opener that offers hands-free operation with an auto-off feature. But here's the key feature-- when fully charged, it opens up to a month's worth of cans. We're not sure what that is, but we figured...say, a dog eats about 40 cans of food in a month. So that's what we bought.
In the box you get the can opener with a cabinet mount, some hardware for mounting, instructions and the charger plug. The instructions don't say what a "full charge" is, but we figure 24 hours should do.
24 hours later, it was evident the charge worked. The mouse fits nicely in the palm. And we opened our first can of dog food with no problem. 39 cans later, the Gizmo Cordless Can Opener was still going strong.
We had opened cans big and small, even cans with pop top lids.
The auto-off feature was nice. When the Gizmo is mounted you just push the button and the Gizmo takes care of opening the lid, stopping when it's done and holding onto the can.
"Does It Work?" We give it a "yes."
We paid $24.99 for the Gizmo Cordless Can Opener at Target. They are available just about anywhere kitchen appliances are sold.
By the way, we gave the food to the Smith County Humane Society.
