Smooth Edge Can Opener
Side-Operation Can Openers Leave a Smooth Edge
I love my smooth edge can opener! This new style of manual side-operation can opener produces a smooth edge when the can is opened.
The can opener sits on top of the can, as shown on the photo. By turning the top crank, it cuts the can's side or edge, not the top, and removes that lip on top of the can.
The lid remains sitting on top of the can when the can is completely opened. With a few turns in reverse, the can opener releases the lid. Then the tiny pliers on the edge of the can opener can be used to lift the edge of the lid from the can to discard it.

The tiny plier mechanism is the two-pronged silver piece of metal sticking from the top of the can opener. You place the lip of the can lid in the pliers, press a button, and it picks it up. To release it, hold the can lid over the trash can and release the button.
