New York Times post - can opener

Isn't this cute? If I hadn't bought a great one recently (picture above) at Standard Restaurant Supply (2922 E McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85008) I would get this. The one I use is called Swing - a - Way and it works great every time.
This store has everything you need for your kitchen, including a lime squeezer - essential for chamoyadas and micheladas - and they also have flour sack towels in multi packs.

A Lift to Any Can

Published: January 26, 2010

This blue whale can opener (which also comes in black) is not only winsome, but is also a clever and effective tool. The best part is that there are no dangerous sharp edges left on the can or the lid.

Turn the “spout” of the whale clockwise and after a quarter-turn you can feel it locking on. Keep turning. When you are done the lid will be sliced at the rim, and a little grabber on the side will help remove it.

Whale LidLifter by Kuhn Rikon is $18 at Zabar’s and from, (866) 233-6587.
