Suitable for kitchens opening around 20 cans per day, the BCO-2000 and BCO-3000 are the line's medium-duty can openers, distinguished by the yellow band located under their handles. These are constructed from a zinc alloy called Zamak, which is a combination of zinc, aluminum, magnesium, and copper. The bar length on the BCO-2000 is 16 inches, allowing it to accommodate cans with a maximum height of 14 inches, while the BCO-3000 can accommodate cans as tall as 22 inches with a bar length of 25 inches. The gear, which determines how many handle turns it will take to make a complete rotation around the can, measures 1 inch for both.
The EaziClean series also includes the BCO-5000 and BCO-6000, heavy-duty can openers identified by a blue handle band. These are constructed with stainless steel, a durable metal often used in food-grade construction, and can open as many as 60 cans per day. With a bar length of 16 inches, the BCO-5000 can be used with cans as tall as 14 inches, while the BCO-6000, with a bar length of 25 inches, can be used with cans as tall as 22 inches. The gear on these models measures 11⁄2 inches.
The final model in the series is the BCO-7000, which is an extra-heavy-duty can opener identified by a black band. It is also constructed from stainless steel and includes a 11⁄2-inch gear, and is recommended for kitchens where more than 60 cans need to be opened per day. The cutting mechanisms on each of these Vollrath can openers are dishwasher-safe, but the BCO-7000 can be placed in the dishwasher in its entirety. However, with a blade removal system that can be detached and reattached in a matter of seconds, each model in this line is easily cleaned and sanitized. EaziClean can openers can be permanently mounted onto a counter or temporarily mounted with a portable bracket that allows the can opener to be moved.
