The can openers that have a key and you have to latch it on to a peice of metal and twist the key all the way round the can.

Just now I was opening one and all it kept doing was falling off, then the whole ring of sharp metal decided to slip all the way off the key. Also I have a nice deep cut in my thumb, oh the joy.

Finally managed to open it all and my dog decides not to eat it.

I hope your OK,


I love them to be honest, I think they're clever and Iv'e never had any trouble, I've only cut myself on the lids when they've been opened

No not that kind of can opener, I like those kind lol.

Its the ones where there is a thin strip of metal all around the edge of the can and you get the key and twist this thin strip all the way round with a metal 'key' so you don't cut your fingers to ribbons.

I'm fine but I just had a peice of cellery with salt on it and it went in to my thumb! Arghhh :p

Does SPAM come in those cans ? -googles-

Ooooo, it depends on what kind of pain it is.. and what mixture it is with..

I absolutely hate those cans. :( It's a killer trying to get the corned beef open. Can't they make round cans?? :o

I despise SPAM, conred beef etc, hence i havnt actually opened one of those cans, dont intend to either. My mum always snaps off the key so she resorts to a sharp knife with prescision aiming

I guess that's the best way. I really think they should be changed. I mean, can you imagine a poor little old lady trying to open those things? Even the ring-pull corned beef tins take immense strength to open. :o

The can that I was opening was a round one but it had a hardened metal lid and bottom so I could not use my can opener! How rude of them!:hea:

I have had more cuts and sliced fingers from those can openers than I can remember. The cans don't help either. Sardines and bacon grill (luncheon meat) are the worst :hea:


I'm with you Ampersand; what's wrong with round cans?!

I can open them just fine. What I hate is the metal scissor/cutter. I used it once on a can and I can see so much blood leaking out of my thumb skin

I remmber a few years ago I got a deep cut in my thumb too, it hurt a lot. I wish I didn't hurt so much.
