My New Toy

I have this problem with the tendons in my wrists. It's a bit like a cross between RSI and tendonitis. Using a butterfly can opener is doing my thumbs in.

Luckily, most tins have a ring-pull opening, but there are some yummy cat food tins that require an opener, so I treated myself to this amazing little gadget:


It's a Culinaire One-Touch Can Opener. You put it on top of the tin, it latches on with a magnet. Press the button, and it chugs its way round the top, then stops when it's done. It lifts the lid straight off. Effort-free.
The best thing is, I tried to buy it a week ago, but they didn't have any in stock. When I went back, they had lots, and they'd reduced them by £3.
I do love a bargain.

Is this the one I have seen advertised where the man is wearing a rug that spins around on the top of his head?

I need to get one of these for a friend who has MS - that is, if she hasn't got one already. Brilliant!

Lozzie - yes.

Judith - Argos.
