Thread: Recommendations: a can opener that works longer than an afternoon

    Default Recommendations: a can opener that works longer than an afternoon

    I have purchased 3 different can openers in the last few months, none of them can open a can, at all. I’d have better luck just stabbing at the can. There just isn’t enough grip/depth to the cut, and I end up making a jagged mess. Figured you all may have a go-to that really lasts.

    It wouldn't do any good. All of India is on lockdown so you wouldn't be able to purchase one. Just use a sharp knife. If you don't have a sharp knife then use a dull knife and a hammer. If you don't have that then stick in in the microwave and hold a metal trash can lid in front of you while standing in the farthest room of your house behind a solid door. I guarantee that can will open with a bang.

    Reminds me of this old WB cartoon. If all you got is canned food, the one with the can opener wins.

    A P51 might work. It's old school, but they're small and easy to carry.

    One of the popular prepper beliefs is that the pop top cans dont last as long on the shelf. I dont know if it's true but I do know I have dozens of those cheap little aluminum things.
