I haven't done many equipment posts.
I posted about my Big Ten Inch and my awesome BIG Deep Sink.
Wait... now that I think about it... I also posted about my KitchenAid Food Processor, but not my KitchenAid Mixer, or the awesome Meat Grinder attachment.
This isn't a post about an awesome tool. Just one you need. Well... I guess if you ONLY use fresh foods, you might not need one. But I often have occasion to open a can!
I've never had an electric can opener and really don't want one. It seems like a time you might really need a can opener is when there's no electricity. We had a manual can opener for years that I never had a problem with. But Jon hated it. He said it was hard to use. So sometime during spring, I bought a new one. He loved it, I hated it. I kept using the old one, while he used the new one.
Within the past week, I couldn't use either one of them. I almost considered trying to hack into the can with one of my awesome knives... but then I came to my senses. I pried open whatever I was trying to open, didn't cut myself and vowed to get a new can opener the next day.
So that's what I did.
I went to Target at lunch on Friday and started trying out all of the can openers. Unfortunately I couldn't actually open cans with them. That would have been ideal. I just tried turning the handles. They ranged in price from about $7 to about $20. I kept comparing to see if it felt like they'd really grip the edge of the can. But I had no way to tell if it would actually cut.
I got this one. It was $10.
It opened those cans just fine.
I guess time will tell.
What kind of can opener do you use?
What do you like about it?
What don't you like about it?
Inquiring minds want to know!
