This electric can opener saves your wrists — and it's just $25 ($10 off) at Amazon today

[Editor’s note: We’re updating our coverage daily, so check out today’s best Kitchen Mama Black Friday deal here! The original story is below.]

I've somehow acquired tennis elbow without ever picking up a racket, and one of the most painful challenges is opening cans. This everyday task is now the bane of my existence, and we all know how hard it is to turn those manual contraptions to begin with. They don't cinch on the can right, only half gets done before you lose your grip and you wind up with a slice in your finger from jagged metal edges. Enter: The Kitchen Mama Electric Can Opener, which is on sale for just $25 (down from $35) at Amazon. (Worth noting: Amazon has a slew of Kitchen Mama can openers on sale today, but this is the deal you definitely don't want to miss.)

Amazon shoppers rave about how easy can-opening is with this handy gadget.

The Kitchen Mama's mission is to make a safe product for all users. Originally designed for a family member who struggled with this task due to arthritis, the automatic can opener was born. Here's what's to love about this task masterer. (Is that a word? It is now!)

Ready to go with just four AA batteries (sold separately), the Mama ensures you no longer need yet another clumsy appliance on the counter that requires an outlet. Just stash it in a drawer when not in use.

Get it going with just a click of a button, and click again when it's done. Completely safe for those of us who are challenged in the kitchen. "My wrist and hand strength just isn’t what it used to be," said a five-star fan. "I should have gotten this can opener years ago. Not only is it small enough to pop in a drawer, it’s big enough to roll around big tomato sauce or fruit cans without a problem. I’m actually having fun using it."

The Kitchen Mama ingeniously opens the can around the side, rather than the top, so it's ergonomically safe as well as effortless. Cleanup's a breeze, too: Just wipe it clean with a damp cloth and stick it in the drawer when you're done.

"I love the Kitchen Mama opener," said a happy customer. "I don’t have much strength in my hands and this is so easy. It also does not leave a sharp edge on the lid or can."

With that kind of performance, you'll want to grab one of these today (available in seven colors) and get cooking.

Just place it on your can, push a button and let it get to work. It's that simple.

$35 at Amazon
