I'm one of those lucky people who have somehow acquired tennis elbow without ever picking up a racquet, and let me tell you — it's not easy to do anything with your favored arm afflicted. When I get a particularly bad bout I lose all strength, and one of the most painful challenges has become opening cans. Yes, this simple, everyday task is now the bane of my existence, and we all know how hard it is to turn those darn manual contraptions to begin with. They don't cinch on the can right, only half gets done before you lose your grip and tuna juice leaks all over you and the counter, and you wind up with a slice in your finger from jagged metal edges. It's not pleasant. Until I discovered — ta-da! — the Kitchen Mama Electric Can Opener!
This Amazon's Choice electric can opener is on sale today at the online retailer for just $24, an 11-buck markdown from its usual price. You'll know it was money well spent every time your voice is spared from yelling, "Honey! Can you open this for me?"

The Kitchen Mama's mission is to make a safe product for all users. Originally designed for a family member who struggled with this task due to arthritis, the automatic can opener was born. Here's what's to love about this task masterer. (Is that a word? It is now!)
Ready to go with just four AA batteries (sold separately), the Mama ensures you no longer need yet another clumsy appliance on the counter that requires an outlet. Just stash it in a drawer when not in use.
Get it going with just a click of a button, and click again when it's done. Completely safe for those of us who are challenged in the kitchen. "I bought this for a special-needs friend who only has one arm/hand available," one reviewer reported. "He loves it. Can easily open cans because it works all by itself with the touch of a button. Cuts around the side of the can so no troubles trying to get the cut lid out of the can, which also takes two hands. Had it for four weeks thus far. This quality unit has restored his ability to do what he loves, and that's to cook! I am going to get one for myself!"
Another tale from a happy shopper: "I bought this for my mother, who has some problems with arthritis, and when we gathered around to see if it worked, we were all pretty impressed. It left the edge of the can crimped in a way that avoids those sharp edges, which I personally have been sliced by several times. At first it didn't seem like it was working, but then we lifted it and boom — open can! I might get one for myself, honestly."
Like they said: The Kitchen Mama ingeniously opens the can around the side, rather than the top, so it's ergonomically safe as well as effortless. Cleanup's a breeze, too: Just wipe it clean with a damp cloth and stick it in the drawer when you're done.
"I just recently bought this can opener and I really love it," said this satisfied customer. "It's convenient, hassle-free and not complicated to use. You just simply push the button and let it do its magic. I am really satisfied and would recommend this to my friends and family."
With that kind of performance, you'll want to grab one of these today (available in Red, Sky Blue, Snow White and Teal Green) and get cooking.
