Discussion Summary

Saratoga Retirement Community explorer Anne reports on finding a can opener that she says she would love to have - "if it does what it says it does".

As seen on TV and offered on, this device is different from the rest in that it lifts the can lid out of its setting, rather than cut it out like conventional can openers which leave sharp jagged edges on the lid and the top of the can. The group discussed the virtues of the older manual model, and see the current electric version as a step up.
