My Handicap Friendly Can Opener



Why in the world would I blog about a can opener?

Because I am so happy that I found a can opener I can use, finally! Since my hand was damaged by MS decades ago.....poor dexterity



This can opener is made by Joseph Joseph.  It is good for anyone who has dexterity problems.






I opened 7 cans rather easily with this manual can opener.  It was for an easy taco soup recipe I make.

This would have been an impossible task with many other can openers I have used throughout the years.

Oh the little things.....

I ordered mine from Macy.com $15? I thought it was electric so when I saw it was a manual can opener.....thought I would have to return it immediately. Why I was surprised I could use it.

Glad you found this. Even for someone who has full use of her handset looks like a great tool to have.

How wonderful. Some days even the dexterity our electric one requires takes some effort.
