@Ellicott:  +1  A thread was needed to figure out just to buy yourself one?

@Nic01:  Canned food can actually be healthier than fresh produce.

I can’t use them AT ALL!!! But its because I’m left handed. My dad is too, and so my family has searched long and hard and finally found one that us lefties can use (you can get left-handed ones too, but no one thought of that). Now DH and I have an electric one. Its much easier.

Now, a left-handed thing that I really want is a ruler! In math class I always had to use the ruler with the numbers going the wrong way, which made a lot of extra adding and subtracting.

@Nona99:  this is such a funny post! I hate can openers and always buy the pop top cans when possible (soda can style). I got an OXO can opener that has served me well.

@This Time Round:  love these pics!  I kind of love the look of that original butterfly style, and now I want one for aesthetic reasons! How mid century modern!

I don’t know what has happened to can openers lately, but it seems like the older ones worked great and lasted forever. I can’t find a decent can opener to save my life now.

I can only use a manual one.  I feel your pain.

@Tigerlilybride:  Aren’t the ones that open from the top ambidexterous, or would it be much easier if it rotated the opposite way?

@AB Bride:  They always had ones that open from the side, but yes it would be much easier if they rotated the other way. I think its one of those weird things that right handed people can’t really undrestand, it doesn’t make sense until you’re stuck with it.

I had a very cantankerous can opener once. It dueled with the heating element in the dishwasher, and was not the victor.  No tears were shed. 

Fiance may have raised an eyebrow and questioned the legitimacy of the “accident”. 

Bed bath and beyond was having a sale that week, lol.

I didn’t read all the responses, but can openers are my worst enemies…you would think that a woman with a masters degree would be able to figure them out, but I always get pissed when I use them. Even the electric ones.

Oh, god, can openers.  When I first moved to Japan, I said I needed a can opener, so DH got me one of these.

I could have killed him.
