Using An Electric Can Opener

By December 9, 2015 No Comments

I have worked hard to do a lot of the basic things any mom/wife/person needs to do in their everyday life. Opening cans is a big one and I used a regular can opener for quite a long time. However, last Christmas, Whit gave me an electric can opener. I wasn’t sure if it was something I could use, but I totally CAN!

(Get it? can?! ha ha ha)

Anyway, I thought I’d share because even though it is electric and practically does the work for you, there are still a few things that are challenging about it. Namely getting the can hooked up properly so it can get used, balancing without tummy muscles, and pulling down on the lever when you don’t have downward-pulling ability. It’s a lot of counter-balancing. But for anyone out there who is “built” like me, this is a great item to have in your kitchen! It really is a lot easier than a regular can opener.
