Best can opener ever

Last week I bought a new can opener – The One Touch Can Opener.

It’s one of the As Seen On TV products, and yep, I saw it on TV and was intrigued. You simply put the AA-battery-powered opener on top of the can, and it does all the work. It knows when it has traveled all the way around the can and shuts itself off automatically.

I was a little skeptical when I bought it, but I gotta say, it works exactly as promised. I placed it on top of a can and it went right to work. Opened it perfectly and all I had to do was throw the lid away.

I highly recommend it. Downtown Walgreens has them, or you can order one from the As Seen On TV website. At $19.95 it’s a little more expensive than traditional can openers, but worth it.

This lunchtime post is brought to you by the free wi-fi at the Flying Saucer. I came down here for lunch so I could get in an extra vote for the guy who dressed up as the First United Methodist Church (which burned earlier this month) in the Halloween contest. Don’t forget to come down to the Saucer tonight and vote (and drink cheap beer – it’s Pint Nite). Get a receipt for each beer you order, and write “Burning Church” on the receipt and hand it back in to vote. Contest winner will be announced at 7 pm Halloween evening.
