Having identified the poor user-experience and ergonomics associated with the traditional style can opener. AME Group were briefed to realise a user-focused product design solution – whilst changing the aesthetics of this everyday utensil.

The resulting can opener, dubbed ‘Pelican’, works on the principle of a ratchet system. As well as making the process of opening cans effortless, the Pelican also enables users to lift and pour the attached tin, whilst creating an elegant addition to any modern kitchen.

“We were impressed by the enthusiasm that the team at AME showed to our project and we are delighted with the final design solution. Being relatively new to buying design services we recognised that AME had a strong service offering. The resulting product has outperformed our expectations to date.” - Alastair Fisher, Managing Director, Taylor's Eye Witness
