If there was an award for the most boring blog post then I'm sure that this would be up there, but I need your advice!
Lately I've been destroying can openers like there's no tomorrow, any plastic part gets crushed or cogs get stripped. I've been resorting to using the broken can openers one little bit at a time, rather than winding them round, like you would a can opener on a multi tool. Well it's that or going outside and rubbing it on a paving slab for a few minutes and popping the top off - which works surprisingly well, there's a good video on YouTube about it here.
|Two failed can openers, there have been two more lately as well.|
The plastic parts seem to be what fails first. So the other day I brought an all metal one, but it isn't strong enough and the handle has already started to bend, that and it keeps slipping off the rim. I don't mind spending money on something that's going to last, and there seems to be plenty of choice out there, I don't want an electric one, just a good solid manual one.
So your recommendations will be greatly received and I'll buy the one most people think is any good, even if I have to import it from the States!
Sorry this is such a boring post but there's little point of having canned food if you can't open it and I'm fed up of buying rubbish!
