As much as we love the process of cooking, we can’t say we’ve ever got to grips with the laborious task of opening tin cans.

Not only is it boring and time-consuming, traditional can openers are prone to breaking or ending up blunt in short spaces of time.

But, short of forgoing cans forever, what else can we do?

Well, it turns out it’s pretty simple. We need to upgrade to the Morphy Richards Electric Can Opener, an automatic multifunctional kitchen gadget.

This nifty can opener has six different functions that allows you to open cans, jars, lids and even hard-plastic packaging.

To operate the gadget, simply hold the can under the guide pin and press the lever lightly and the self-starting blade will pierce it and commence cutting.

The can remains fixed in position with the magnet resting against the lid until the can is open, when the motor will automatically stop, while retaining the can and lid safely in place.

The 6 in 1 multifunction opener also has numerous other integrated opening tools great for those who struggle with dexterity issues or simply want to save time on everyday opening tasks.

A cutting blade is included for tough plastic, as well as a twist cap and metal cap bottle opener, a ring pull can opener and a grip and grab tool for can lids.
