My Husband's New Favourite Toy

I know, it's just a tin-opener right?


We are not talking about one of those butterfly tin-openers that starts turning and then gets stuck if it encounters any dent. Or even one of those that slices the top off, and then your fingers if you're not careful.

No, no. This is a Hands Free Tin Opener (from JML). Just watch…

Mr. TheBoyandMe absolutely adores it! I'm very fond too but he finds it has made the whole tuna-sandwich making procedure so much easier. While the opener's doing it's job, he's buttering the bread and getting the mayonnaise out of the fridge. It is so easy to use. There is a magnetic catch on it too so that if it is a magnetic tin then the lid will lift off when you remove the opener. Doesn't work on aluminium tins, obviously.

At £14.99, this tin opener might seem more pricey than others but it is very easy to spend nearly £10 on a good quality metal one. For a few pounds more, you can have one that just gets on with the job and doesn't complain about it.


The lovely folk over at JML have donated one of their fabby can-openers for a lucky reader. In order to be in with a chance of winning, please do the following:

    Seriously. For a second I thought it was something else entirely and got very confused! I'm very tired. I need sleep. But I want it. Our tin opener is crap. I'm in.
