OneTouch Can Opener on top of a can.

I used the OneTouch® Can Opener on my favorite soup - albondigas.


Preface: The day after I posted this, my can opener really jammed. I’ve seen other reviews about this problem, but I chalked them up to operator error. Now I’m not so sure. I still like the product, and it’s opened dozens of cans for me, but my endorsement is no longer so glowing.
If you have weak hands and fingers, you may have shared my frustration with can openers. The ones that sit on the counter have a major flaw: they expect you to hold up the can with one hand while you press down a lever with the other. Unless I was opening a 6 ounce can of tomato paste, I found that an impossible assignment. So when I found the OneTouch® can opener on Amazon I just had to share it with everyone. I have included a video, because it is almost impossible to describe in a believable fashion how easy it is to use this device. In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that once or twice it seemed to grab hold of a can and not want to let go even after it was through cutting. But after a little fussing with it, I managed to persuade it to let go.
