At the door frame or other place in the kitchen was a metal plate screwed to the can wall mounted electric can opener that could be pushed. A tin can was the can wall mounted electric can opener and hung by simply turning the handle the can was opened. The lid of the can remained after opening the can wall mounted electric can opener hanging (magnet?). After you could use the can opener wall of the metal plate out and clean out kitchen drawer or cabinet. This is a familiar piece of kitchen equipment. The model we saw had something simpler out, I even believe that something was different shades of brown. If I remember correctly it was a gift from Mother because one of my sisters. It was also pushed to a wall mounted electric can opener plate but was just sitting up after use. It was wall mounted electric can opener in a location where it does not preclude Sat Half that time I opened a can I found it helpful but my mother was not equipment oriented. After some time it was new and fell off my mother back to a simple model can opener, which had seen better days but any policy until separation of tin and lid could come. At one point, the wall mounted electric can opener opening of the wall mounted electric can opener removed, while the picture was left like an orphan. The opener disappeared into the black hole that every household seems to have the wall plate and put the wayside during a subsequent modernization of the kitchen. Maybe some off-topic but who still knows the model with a crank at the top, rotating in a horizontal plane and with the lid on the side was cut. The cut was very slippery and you could gain back the lid. I ran into this model in the USA again. Because they suddenly all sorts of simple household automatic movements could do, that it was done so! I think of an wall mounted electric can opener bread knife, cut bread like the worst job in the world would be. So also with can openers that do their job best always. But when I left the house in 1979, my mother bought me above Tomado opener wall (I had not asked) and how I often cut my fingers there, especially when I was cleaning contraption! In 1982 I sold it to a colleague when I emigrated. I warned her bloody fingers!. We had the same as in the picture but in a yellow kleur. Hij sat on the windowsill above the aanrecht. We as children always found it's fun to open cans. If I'm not mistaken you could if you give him when he took off for about a quarter turn and then hang up, then he would not so far. With us also that metal plate on the wall years after an electric can opener came. For my parents there was no wall can opener. My mother used a hand metal opener. Over time, there was often rust. Apparently no stainless steel. I recognize this opener, but we did not him home. Even in my own house, he is not found. My mother has used for years about opening of the type that @ Grompie talking about. And could get along without saving. The disadvantage of such a wall mounted electric can opener opening, I found that you get a spot on the wall mounted electric can opener had to look, which already (too) many things were hanging. I currently use a simple hand Brabantia opener. That way it is. At a bar with hooks. These open in a cream color with brown, then I like engagement or wedding gift. The thing I never used, and the year in the package in a drawer leave. I used a simple openertje prefer that my husband was out of service kende. Dat consisted of a rectangular piece of metal, which eenuitklapbaar shark tooth-like knife Sat That knife you hit with the tip top of the can and a tilting movement of the rectangular portion in your hand you cut the can open. Later I think I left the wall mounted electric can opener case to someone who found it helpful. I'm that handy thing now lost over time, so now I use a regular manual wall mounted electric can opener with a "butterfly" that you must run. By the way my mother had an wall mounted electric can opener knife, but not used them for cutting bread, that thing just came out of the closet to little things cuttable difficult to get certain types of cakes that are otherwise completely crumbled on tricks delivered. Yes we had this at home. Probably not purchased by my mother who did not like that kind of tricks. No idea whether we have been using. The rise of the wall mounted electric can opener will him out of the kitchen have driven. Some comfort was that the cat knew he had something to eat because I think that the only thing that was used for. I use just a butterfly with open eyes opened if there should be because today is approximately on each can have a ring that you can make it open. Coosje @ the opener which you speak, I know. Ah, there is the opener of my Swedish grandmother. She never took him to the keeper so he was always ready for use. I would like to have such a thing as weather, better than the junk they sell nowadays. Reminds me a bit of conference Fons Jansen. He speaks foreign languages ??and in Denmark wants to buy a can opener. "How do you do that, point your hand and foot and yes, eventually it comes with that thing on. I ask the salesman "what is called in Danish?" Says he: "Bliköpener '". Oh, my aunt had one. And I thought it was so wonderful. Mainly by the metal plate and so he got stuck. A world invention. You had to remove him right, because I am sometimes hard to run against. Yet a strange place, so the inside of a door frame. My mother had not. No idea why. We did and still do such a simple thing. Still works the best, I think. Am I old fashioned?. Fortunately, there are cans come with a tab that you pull out the entire lid. But those tabs would sometimes break down before the lid is off and then the good old handcrafted can opener. also had a home, and later replaced by electric can opener wall where nobody knew me good to go. so it was still in the kitchen drawer looking for a hand opener.
