One-Handed Can Opener


Open cans with one hand

I have had this one-handed can opener for over five years. Though the price seems high for a basic tool, I will say that this can opener has turned the chore of opening cans into an easy and straightforward one. The can opener is easy to attach to the can and then you are away with a one-handed cranking motion (squeezing the handles together) to open the can. I can’t recall a time when I have had to restart the opening process (as is my norm with other can openers). The cranking process takes some effort but it is not enormous — I think that it would be feasible for anyone with minimal hand strength. To note however that this can opener is the classic approach where the lid is cut off leaving sharp edges to deal with.
