  •  The only problem is that those can openers (3+ / 0-)

    suck for tuna cans as you can't use the lid as a strainer with them.  Otherwise they are great and last much longer than the regular "sharp edge" kind.

    •  Sure you can (0+ / 0-)

      Just turn it over. It's open, even if it doesn't seem to be. The first can I opened it took a while to get the hang of taking off the lid, and I knew the can was open because all the juice would trickle out when I turned it over.

      Or you can take off the lid and loosely replace it, just like you would with any can. But with this one you don't have to worry about cutting your hand.

      •  The point is that the lid doesn't go down inside (0+ / 0-)

        the can (because it cuts the rim on the top) so you can't squeeze all the juice out of it like you can with the regular kind.  In other words, the lid is used to apply pressure to the tuna which you can't do with those safety can openers.  Fortunately, that's the only thing I use a conventional can opener for so they tend to last a while.
