A commercial can opener is just what you need when it comes to opening those big #10 cans throughout the day. At TundraFMP Restaurant Supply, we carry a variety of commercial can openers from the industry's leading brands like Edlund, Nemco, Vollrath, Winco, and more.
Commercial manual can openers and electric can openers
The manual can opener is a commercial kitchen staple. Commercial manual can openers are typically put into two categories: #1 or #2. If you need a heavy duty can opener, then a #1 manual can opener is for you. These types of can openers are capable of opening up to 50 cans per day and can open cans as tall as 11 inches. #2 can openers, on the other hand, are just right for smaller tasks, opening up to 25 cans per day with cans at a maximum height of 7 inches. In either case, a stainless steel commercial can opener is a good choice if you’re looking to ward against rust.
Following proper cleaning and maintenance schedules is the best 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. Tip: Manual can opener knives are reversible to extend blade life.
