Edlund S-11 Manual Can Opener: Refined Design Is Always Popular

High-Tech Engineering Results in a Safe, Durable, Versatile Can Opener

BURLINGTON, VT – December 2006 – Edlund Company, Inc., a Vermont-based developer and manufacturer of high-quality stainless steel equipment for the foodservice industry, reaffirmed its commitment to high-tech equipment design through the promotion of its S-11 Manual Can Opener. For over 17 years, the NSF certified S-11 has been the choice of the foodservice industry.

The S-11 Manual Can Opener is engineered to provide food safety, durability, and maximum versatility: these design features are as important as ever. Edlund’s proprietary can opening technology has enabled the S-11 to open nearly 1 billion cans without a single complaint. Further enhancing food safety, the S-11 is dishwasher safe with a wide opening at the gear mechanism to allow water to flow through for optimal cleaning.

It’s 5-year warranty, the longest in the industry, confirms Edlund’s confidence in the durability of the S-11. Its stainless steel construction is corrosion-resistant and long lasting. Easy maintenance features, such as rapid disassembly for cleaning and the pull pin for blade replacement, help extend the can opener’s life span.

Edlund also understands the importance of versatility in foodservice equipment. The S-11 accommodates most shapes and sizes of can (up to 14″) and is available with a standard shank or extra long shank to fit taller cans. There is now also the option of a clamp base or the traditional screw down model.

“With 80 years’ experience, Edlund’s S-11 can opener represents the type of refinement we have achieved in our product design,” comments Peter Nordell, Edlund’s senior vice president of global sales and marketing. “We’re pleased to offer foodservice professionals simple solutions to make their kitchens more efficient and sanitary with our equipment.”
