The small, handy shape of the GOURNETmaxx can opener does not make up for the can opening.

The TV Das Original - GOURMETmaxx Automatic Can Opener is a bit unwieldy to operate and the edge is wavy. However, the opener is very small and can be easily stored in any drawer.
The can opener GOURMETmaxx is our smallest tested device. It was packed in a plastic packaging that is impractical to open and equipped with an instruction manual. Batteries have also been supplied and already inserted, which makes it possible to use it immediately. The battery compartment can be opened easily with a small Phillips screwdriver.
The battery-operated can opener is mainly designed in a white plastic mix and has a green "touch" button on the top for starting.
Execution and test result
To open the can, place the opener on the can so that the blade touches the edge of the can. As soon as you press the button, the opener starts to turn around and open the can by itself.
There is no automatic switch-off and you have to watch yourself when the can is open. The opener needs something until the blade has been retracted and does not stop immediately if you press the end button again, which is confusing and you feel a bit clumsy the first time you open it.
If you remove the opener from the can, the lid of the can is held to the opener by a magnet. Due to its shape, the opener lies well in the hand and can be stowed easily and quickly.
The can is not cut very cleanly: The edges are equipped with burrs and bent. You can only put the lid back on the can with large gaps to store the contents of the can and therefore cannot close it well.
The device can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth if any of the contents of the can have come into contact with the oper. It is recommended to remove the batteries first.
