Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What's the difference between a #1 can opener and a #2 can opener?
Both #1 and #2 can openers can open the same types of cans, and operate in a similar manner. A #2 can opener is a bit smaller, with a shorter handle that may require more turns to open the same can. A #1 can opener is larger and features a more heavy-duty construction. As a result, it's capable of opening more cans per day.

    opener easy great price cans clean Edlund Quality reliable sturdy

    Maybe there is a secret we don't know that would encourage someone to buy the fancier version of can opener, but for us this one has been perfect. It takes a beating and it works great.

    They call it old reliable for a reason. Don't settle for a cheapo can opener. Edlund has been making these forever and it really shows. You won't regret one of these.

    It's a workhorse! I was shocked at the price, not realizing how expensive can openers could be... but it's worth every penny. We use it all the time and it does the job.

    from Cod & Capers Seafood Posted on

    Can you really live without one of these? We had to actually replace an old one finally and we went with this model for the price and quality.

    from Mesa Grande Taqueria Posted on

    Was tempted to go with a cheaper model but in the pizza Buisness your opening a lot of cans so needed it to go the distance and the name of this model is spot on old reliable!

    from froggys deli Posted on

    Excellent quality and easy to use!! Easy to install with three screws that are included. I would recommend this can opener to any restaurant that has to open large cans!

    from Jovani's Pizza Posted on

    We open quite a few #10 cans on a daily basis and this has held up well over the past couple of years. Great sturdy product.

    from B Fabulous BBQ Posted on

    Can opener came very quickly and is very durable. This item stays true to its name as an old reliable can opener. Would definitely recommend this item to other customers. We would reorder should the need arise.

    Heavy duty durable can opener! This thing takes a beating everyday and you wouldn't know it. A little pricey but you get what you pay for.

    from Verdon Restaurants, LLC. Posted on

    Excellent Quality Can opener. These work very well with the any size can and much better than the hand can opener. The major difference in price between others is the plate difference. Best price available.

    from Kach LLC Posted on

    We bought this 3 years ago and still works like the day we bought it. I am buying another one to speed up our catering operation. For the money you will not find a better option.

    from fat chef catering Posted on

    This is a great lighter duty can opener. If you are opening up a couple cans a day this will get the job done for you. I hated it at first, but after more use it loosened up and became easier to use.

    There are many companies out there that try to make this and they do not work. The Edlund is the best can opener and last the longest.

    I was looking for a replacement blade for the old can opener that we had, but this was a much better option since the price difference wasn't very much! It works great, very smooth.

    from Piggy's Place Posted on

    It is hard to beat Edlund for can openers. I just received a new No. 1 for our church. The finish is improved over the older ones but it still has the same sturdy design. I have used 50 year old Edlunds that still work as well as a new one.

    Two months of heavy use and so far so good. Good for any size can. So nice when opening many at one time. A time and arm saver.

    Great use for open big or lil cans with. With every day use i have found that this is very durable an long lasting. It never lets me down and will get the job done

    from Louie Pizzeria Posted on

    There's a reason it is called "Old Reliable." This is a must-have in any restaurant's kitchen. Don't waste money on cheapo can openers; this is a great purchase and a wonderful investment.

    This can opener has been great for the months since we purchased it. We have never had a problem with it. It opens cans with great ease!

    from Giordano's Pizza House Posted on

    It says it in the name, Old Reliable! Sure, there are fancier openers out there, but why bother? With a little muscle and coordination, this is the only opener that a kitchen should need. Few parts to break, easy to replace cutting blade, it is really a no brainer for any kitchen! Be sure to clean it often or you will end up having to buy a new one!
