A Can Opener That Takes Up Less Drawer Space

A Can Opener That Takes Up Less Drawer Space

This week at The Kitchn, we're talking about canned goods and learning to love your pantry — and what's the most essential thing when cooking with canned goods? A good can opener, of course. Because I live in an apartment in New York City, with a grand total of two drawers, I'm always on the lookout for the most compact kitchen tools out there. This little one from Joseph Joseph fits the bill.

In the past decade I've purchased and gotten rid of several can openers. For me, for some reason, can openers are like corkscrews and bottle openers — I need one at unexpected times, and end up picking up an extra in a pinch. And, in the process of using my motley crew of can openers, I've ended up with cuts on my fingertips from plenty of ragged can edges.

That's why I like the Can-Do. It takes up only a small amount of drawer space. It's only as big around as a traditional can of soup, and it removes the lid with a clean edge.

Plus, it locks onto the lid and only releases it when you push the button on the front — meaning you won't have to touch the lid at all.
