Opening a can shouldn’t be dangerous


Chef’n makes the job of opening cans easy with its EZ Squeeze
opener ($19.99). You can also do it one-handed. Press a button to separate the handles so the sturdy stainless steel cutting mechanisms can be clamped in place. Then it’s just a matter of squeezing the rubber handles as you ratchet your way around the can.
A nice little safety feature after the lid is opened is a small magnet on the opener, which helps remove the lid. Opening a can shouldn’t be dangerous. If you’ve got a lethal one in your kitchen drawer, discard it.
