Nemco Can Opener

Nemco Can Opener

Let’s face it; nobody likes the task of opening a bunch of cans. With a standard can opener, the job is a real chore. What’s worse is that a regular can opener can leave you with dangerous sharp edges and you can even leave metal shavings behind in the food you’ll be serving. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, product expert at the WEBstaurant Store. In this demonstration I’m going to show you how the Nemco CanPro can opener can make the job of opening cans easy, safe, and sanitary. Let’s take a look. One thing I want to mention before we begin is you’ll notice this Nemco CanPro can opener is more expensive than the cheapest restaurant can openers out there. There are very good reasons for that. Let me just tell you about two of them right now. First of all, this has a very heavy, stainless steel construction, not that cast aluminum stuff you get with the cheapest can openers. The other thing is that this is NSF approved, so if sanitation is an important issue to you, this is the can opener for you. Alright, now to cut a can. First thing you’re going to do is you’re going to lift the unit up, and slide the can back against the base and put the unit back down on the can. Now, you’re going to take this lever and you’re going to push it down gently. There is no need to slam it like you would with a regular can opener. And we’re going to go for a number ten can, we’re going to go six revolutions. Now when you do this, when I did it the first time, it felt like I wasn’t doing anything at all, so don’t be fooled. Just go ahead and do your six revolutions. One, two, three, four, five, six. That is so easy, so much easier than a regular can opener. I’m going to lift my lever again, pull this out, and just take a look. It felt like we didn’t do anything, but there you have it. You can see, this is a nice edge and it doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t cut at all, and the lid did not fall down into the can. It’s as easy as that. When the blade in your Nemco CanPro can opener becomes dull, the easiest way to switch it out is to purchase a new cutter housing. In fact, when you buy a CanPro can open, I recommend you get a cutter housing with it, that way you’ll never have any down time. This is how you’ll switch this out. All you have to do is lift the lever, release the pin on the side, you can bring the cutter head up, and pull this cutter housing right out. Then get your new unit. That just slides right in, and you can see this is much easier than changing the blades on an old number one can opener. Replace your pin and you are all set to go. To replace just the cutter blade in your Nemco CanPro can opener, what you’ll do is you’ll release this lever, pull the pin, lift your head up, and slide out the cutter housing. Now, you’ll see on your cutter housing, it’ll actually tell you which way is tight and which way is loose, and it’ll show you on both sides. You’ll just use your wrenches to take this apart and you can see this diagram here shows you exactly how to do it.

Say good bye for good to the "lift, slam, puncture, and rip" can opening techniques that have been overstressing elbows for 100 years. The Nemco 56050-1 CanPRO runs smarter, easier and longer than ever. Why worry about contamination from the lid in the can, serious injury from sharp metal edges, metal filings or other problems created using the old can opener technology of the past? The cutter never makes contact with the inside of the can. No metal shavings fall inside of the can. The lid comes off clean with no jagged edges. The cutter will not penetrate past the first layer of metal on the lid's seam, alleviating the potential of producing metal slivers if the user over- rotates the can. When the cutter runs its life cycle, it won't cut at all, clearly indicating that it should be replaced. Nemco has opened over 7,000 lids and the original cutter is still cutting!

    This can opener ROCKS! It's very different in how it works compared to other can openers so it takes some getting used to for some workers.

    This can opener is very different from other can openers. It basically separates the lid from the can where it was press down into the can. The problem I had was getting the lid out after separating it. The other problem was some cans would not open no matter how much I tried. I called the customer service at Nemco and the young lady I talk with was no help at all. She bacically said I'm stuck with an opener that will not open all cans.

    This can opener has been mounted to our counter for 9 years and has to have been used over 50,000 times! If you have an industrial kitchen, you would be foolish not to upgrade to this opener!

    This can opener works great. I use a lot of number 10 cans and they open them up as quick as can be. Any restaurant that uses a lot of cans needs to get one of these!

    Even though more expensive than the traditional can opener this one has saved a lot of money for us, the blade is incredibly easy to change and at such a low price a replacement you can't get any cheaper , the quality is there as well , we switched all three restaurant to this can opener as we needed to replace them and have saved us a lot of money , and the description of the product is very accurate , not one metal shaving in any can ever
