Build a Kit – Manual Can Opener – Week 13

Build a kit - manual can opener - week 13

This week we add something I think would come in handy for even a short power outage – a manual can opener. Frankly I find it helpful even during those times when for some reason the electric can opener we have isn’t cooperating with me and the can. I will keep trying a few times and eventually just give up and use the manual one.

Because I am definitely not a manual can opener connaisseur, I looked around online for some advice and found a recent article on appropriately called “Best Can Opener.” It seems to showcase some nice looking openers at reasonable prices.

As I mentioned we already have a manual can opener, but since we need that one for the kitchen, we will be buying a different one for our kit.

As a side note, throughout this series of posts about getting prepared, I may mention certain products, services, agencies, etc. At no time is it my intention to promote a specific product or service or agency. Each is mentioned only for informational purposes.  Of course as a government employee, I do receive a salary from the government for the time I work on my job which by the way is not affiliated with this site, but I don’t receive any compensation from any commercial entities I mention or include in these posts.
