For those with arthritis in hands & wrists, I found the perfect can opener. It’s not electric. Instead of the knob that you have to twist, it has a lever that you push back & forth.
It cost $15.00 but is worth every penny. I can now open cans without any pain in my hands.

What is the name brand & where did you find this at ? Could surely use something like this when the power is out. Thanks.

JoAnn – I think it was an easy comforts catalog. the brand name is “progressive”. i get so many cataloges for handicapped & disabled.
i’ve been looking for the catalog ever since i posted this. just knew i would need it and was so sure i had it. of course i can’t find it.
will let you know if i do.

ok – had a light bulb moment – receipt. it was easy comforts and item #305010. Also got one shaped like a question mark for opening cans with a pull tab – not Coke cans but like cans of Spam, etc.
I would fight anyone who tried to take them away from me.

Thanks for the information on the can opener Janice. I don’t use electric ones either, because of the power outages. I’ll be checking into this as well, thanks.
