With many kitchens using prepared and canned ingredients to prepare their foods, there are lots of cans being opening in the back of a restaurant. Open up your profit margins with one of our commercial can openers. Both manual and electric can openers are available from FoodServiceWarehouse.com. Many of these models can open cans up to 21” tall with just a few cranks of the handle. Restaurant can openers can range from handheld manual models, all the way up to units that are electric-powered and ready to cut open dozens of cans in any given hour. For large cans, it is best to use a table-mounted or wall-mounted can opener. These can openers are designed handle the industrial sized cans that most restaurants buy. The blades lock in place and the handle on top cranks around to open large cans quickly. Over time, the blade used to puncture and open the cans will become caked with grime and food product. It is important to periodically disassemble and clean the manual can opener components with warm, soapy water and a sponge in order to maintain a safe, germ free food service environment. Before reassembling the can opener, make sure that each piece is properly dried to prevent rust from occurring.
