Kuhn Rikon of Switzerland - the Ultimate Collection of Openers!
A key category within their ever-evolving collection of tools/gadgets, Kuhn Rikon of Switzerland has developed a range of openers to rival anybody!

Boasting enviable features that maximise simplicity, safety and hygiene, they are guaranteed to enhance even the most well-equipped of kitchens.
The 2-in-1 Ratchet Safety LidLifter
Released in 2016, the 2-in-1 Ratchet Safety LidLifter by Kuhn Rikon of Switzerland is a can opener with a difference! The innovative ratchet mechanism is less demanding to operate than its traditional counterparts and is therefore ideal for those with limited strength/mobility in their hands and wrists.
Once in place, a series of back and forth movements of the ergonomic handle will remove the lid of standard cans/tins with ease. In addition, the device opens ring-pull cans/tins without fuss courtesy of the beak on the side of the gadget. Simply slide it inside the loop of the lid and lift upwards and forwards whilst holding the can/tin firmly in position.
Suitable for both right and left-handed usage, the opener possesses a number of ingenious features that separate it from the competition.
Sharp Edges and Lids - a Thing of the Past!
The 2-in-1 Ratchet Safety LidLifter is a member of an exclusive club of devices that do not cut into the metal of the can/tin in order to remove the lid. Instead, it elegantly un-crimps and un-rolls the lip - a process that is an exact reversal of how the lid is attached to the cylinder of the can/tin when it is originally filled. As well as the obvious safety benefit of this mechanism, it also eliminates the possibility of metal shavings/packaging entering the food.
No Cross-Contamination - use it for Everything!
The capacity of the 2-in-1 Ratchet Safety LidLifter to remove the lid without cutting into the can/tin means that the device never comes into direct contact with its contents. This ensures that the opener doesn’t harbour unwanted bacteria and prevents any potential cross-contamination between different foods. As a result, it can be used for everything - even pet food! And it doesn’t even need to be washed after usage - an occasional wipe with a damp cloth is more than sufficient.
