It's the simple things.
A good bread knife. A good can opener.
Where can you get a good can opener? I'm desperate.
I like the can openers that dont leave a finger=slicing edge. I bought one a few years ago at a home show, plastic knob fell off, but are not easily found in most supermarkets
They are the ones that break the seal around the edge, rather than cutting into the metal.
I picked up a couple of these a few months ago, and seem to be workuing well:
Looks like you can get battery operates ones too, if you have difficulty turning the knobby bit.
