In some ways it seems strange that there should be such a thing as a Black and Decker can opener. After all why would a company known the world over as a leader in home power tools want to branch into kitchen gadgets? Perhaps some of the technology is similar. Whatever the reason they have produced a range of can openers that are both popular and affordable.
Things have moved on somewhat since the original manual can openers. Although they are still found in the kitchen drawers of many households, many people these days tend to prefer their electric counterpart. This is particularly true of older people or those people who find using manual can openers difficult for medical reasons
One of the most successful of their can openers is in the Spacemaker range. The whole concept of this particular range is that the appliances fit under the kitchen counter rather than on top thereby preventing the need for clutter on the work surfaces keeping them clear for food preparation. In addition it features a knife sharpener, bottle opener and bag opener.
This particular Black and Decker can opener has a sleek and discreet design so it does not stand out under counter and will suit most kitchens. In fact when the cover is closed you cannot tell it is a can opener at all! It is designed so that will open cans of all sizes. It is also relatively straightforward to install in your kitchen.
Overall, I think that the Spacemaker performs well and is a good addition to Black and Decker’s range of can openers. Its particular strength is that it is able to be kept out of the way so you can keep your counter tops clutter free to give you more space for preparing food.
