The Cuisinart CCO-50BKN handled every can we threw at it (not literally) with grace and poise. The opener’s simple lever and sharp, precise blade pierced cans in the right spot every time, while its magnet and spurs held on tight throughout the quick duration of the opening process. There was no need to hold on to the lever—the Cuisinart did all the work and knew when to stop. After one full rotation, the lid popped off cleanly without splattering liquid, which made me (and my clothes) happy.
What really sets the Cuisinart apart from the competition is in the design of its casing. The opener is narrower and taller than most other models we tested, and while that sounds like a recipe for tipping over and spilling cans, the protruding lip on its base kept it upright even while opening a 48-ounce can of chicken broth. Three of the four other electric openers we tested were either not tall enough or stable enough to open a can of this size and volume.
Our only criticisms of this can opener are ones we have of most electric models—it’s large, difficult to store and has plastic parts that look likely to break in time. Most manual openers will last you longer, but if you need an electric opener that will get the job done, this Cuisinart is your best bet.
