Commercial Can Openers
In the commercial kitchen (when tough tasks are always on the menu), a little extra elbow grease is often called for. However, one of the best parts of working in the commercial kitchen are all the fun heavy-duty tools and equipment you get to work with that help take some of that load off, one of which are commercial can openers. A commercial can opener is just what you need when it comes to opening those big #10 cans throughout the day. At Tundra Restaurant Supply, we carry a variety of commercial can openers from the industry's leading brands like Edlund, Nemco, Vollrath and much more!
Commercial Manual Can Openers and Electric Can Openers
The manual can opener is a kitchen tool that'll never go out of style. In a commercial kitchen, manual can openers are typically put into two categories: #1 or #2. If finding a heavy duty can opener is your top priority, then a #1 manual can opener is for you. These types of can openers are capable of opening up to 50 cans a day and can open cans as tall as 11 inches. #2 can openers on the other hand are better for smaller, lighter duty tasks, opening up to 25 cans per day (with cans at a maximum height of 7 inches). Some manual can openers featured plated stainless steel base to ward against rust.
Electric can openers have been a staple in the American kitchen for decades, primarily due to their ease of use. Commercial electric can openers are no different—operators love the ability to open a can swiftly with the push of a button. Electric can openers are designed to accommodate a variety of can sizes, and some can open as many as 75 cans per day! Many commercial electric can openers are also NSF certified, making them the perfect choice for any commercial kitchen.
Following proper cleaning and maintenance schedules is often the #1 way to extend the life of your restaurant equipment, and your commercial can opener is no exception. Always wipe down your can opener after use to prevent grime from getting into any internal mechanisms. Check your gear and knives regularly as well—they're designed to last awhile, but not forever. And did you know that manual can opener knives are reversible to extend blade life?
