The Kenwood - CO 600 Can Opener is an appliance with many kitchen functions but takes up a lot of space in the kitchen.
The Kenwood can opener is attractively packaged in a cardboard box and comes with an instruction manual. The power cord must be plugged in and the unit is ready to use.

Execution and test result
To open the can, lift the lever, click in the can and then press the lever down. Clicking in requires some practice and feeling. If you press the lever further down, the opener starts to turn the can and open it. The can does not have to be held during this process. Only when the lever is lifted completely, the can is released. A quick switch-off is possible by slightly lifting the lever. The lever is loosely inserted and wobbles a little.
In principle, the opener manages to open any thin can. But you should take care that the lid is cut off and not the bottom because it is easier to cut. Harder materials are bent and dented, so that other openers can also open the tin only with difficulty. When cutting, small crumbs are formed which settle on the foot.
If the can is removed from the opener by lifting the lever, the lid of the can is held by a magnet.
The can is cut open evenly and the edges are slightly bent. However, the lid of the can is cut off on the inside and cannot be put on again to store the can contents without falling into the can. Its edges should be treated with care.
In addition, the opener has an insert where the knife can be sharpened and a small hook that acts as a bottle opener.
The opener can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth if some of the contents of the can have come to the appliance. It is recommended to disconnect the power connection.
