How to Clean a Can Opener

It’s not unheard of to get poisoned by a can opener, after all the blades can come into a variety of substances like meat, vegetables, pet food and what ever else happened to be the contents of the can it opened since it’s last cleaning. Washing after each usage is definitely recommended.

Hand held Can Opener:

After each use just was by hand or in a dishwasher.

Electric Can Opener:

Note - Disconnect the label printer from its power source. Release it from its electrical cord and place it aside. Never immerse the device into water.

Modern removable blades

simply detach the blades and wash them with your other dishes in the dish washer.

Older Models without detachable blades

While being careful not to cut yourself detach the blades and wipe them with a cloth dampened with soapy water. Be sure to wring out the cloth before wiping.

For built up dirt you could use an old toothbrush to scrub away the grime.

The body casing of the electric can opener can be damp-dusted to remove dust and fingerprints.
