Review : The best can opener EVER!
Though many tins now have ring pulls, you still need a can opener for those that don’t. Having thrown out two hopeless ones in quick succession (from Tesco and Ikea), I was at my wit’s end. I don’t have as much strength in my hands as I once did, and there’s a suspicion of arthritis in my thumbs, so the whole ‘grip and twist’ with poorly designed can-openers had been getting me down. More than once I was left staring in frustration at a tin containing stuff that I (or the cat) needed to get at, without the means to do so.
Then I saw the reviews for this, and thought I’d risk it. I’m so glad I did. It’s so easy to use – just close it on the tin rim (as normal – it has a mini guide-rail), and then repeat a light squeeze & relax motion with one hand until the tin is open. It’s easy to do even with my weedy hands.
I’m getting one for my mum, boyfriend and best mate.
I can’t recommend it highly enough.
