My most prized Tupperware item is my can opener. I had a fancy electric can opener that was crewed into my cabinet and I took it down and gave it away as soon as I discovered the Tupperware can opener. Unlike regular can openers, this one does not cut into the can. You grip the lid and turn the handle and the wheel rolls around the can and separates the glue from the can lid. Instead of cutting and exposing sharp edges of the can, the lid just comes right off when you grip it and pull up. It is very easy to use and a lot of times when people see me opening the can they are surprised because what I do is grip the lid with the can opener and instead of turning the wheel in the traditional way, I hold the turning part still and rotate the handle over and over again. Not one time have a spilled the contents of the can or made a mess. I also like the fact that it does not require electricity so if the power is out or if we want to go out camping one day, I can carry it with me. My only complaint is that I have found certain cans that won't open properly with this can opener but it is very few and far between. But overall, I love it. Ease of Cleaning I have only had to clean it maybe a handful of times in 7 years.
