Trudeau™ StressLess® Can Opener
- Care: Dishwasher safe
- Material: ABS body with zinc die-cast handle
It does not work on cans that have a slightly deeper ""lip"" than average - like canned tuna or salmon.
Unfortunately I don't want to keep two can openers around, so I'll be returning it. It's a shame, because otherwise it is very easy to use
Questions & Answers
Would this be a good gift for an older person who is experiencing dificulty with the old style opener but doesn't like electric?
By splitting the handles, you are eventually doing the same thing as lifting the handle of the old electric type. You are creating a space for the can rim and when you put them back together you are locking it in. You will have to open the handle again to release the can once it's open, just as you would have to lift the handle on the old fashion electric type. You do have to have the crank in the position shown to be spli the handle.
Let me know if this helps.
