A Painless Way to Open Cans

Opening a can is often surprisingly frustrating. How many of these less-than-charming kitchen moments have you experienced?A. Your can opener wads up pieces of label and deposits them in your food.

B. You discover rust –- or, worse, a funky food crust — on the opener’s little wheels.

C. You slice yourself silly on the sharp edge left behind.

Admit it: A can opener that actually opens cans would make your time in the kitchen more pleasant.

We picked up an I-Can Safety Opener from Progressive, and our lives are now just a little more orderly. Gone are the cuts, the cramps from cranking, and the curses. Here’s how the simple task of opening a can goes now: The I-Can Opener grips the can firmly. We push the lever-style opener up and down a few times, and the job is done. Little clamps let us pull off the lid off easily without getting our germy fingers near the food inside.

Another innovation: the opener leaves no sharp edges behind. Go ahead and run your finger around the rim where the lid was removed. (Even lick it!) You won’t get cut because there’s nothing except a smooth finished edge. It’s easy for righties, lefties, kids, senior citizens, and people with arthritis or carpel tunnel. Best of all, the mechanism never rusts – so this just may be the last can opener you ever buy.
