Tanner In The Morning

Weekdays 5:00AM - 10:00AM

And if there weren't enough weird and pointless holidays, today is national can opener day. Yes, you read that correctly. We celebrate the can opener because there was about a half-century between the invention of canned food and the invention of the can opener? How the heck did people open those cans? Go celebrate by opening a can today with your handy dandy can opener.

Not sure about this idea.

According to honeykitchen, TikToker Isabella Avila is taking kitchen hacks to new heights with her can opener hack which has so far had over five million likes and 30,000 comments. Avila suggests taking your handheld can opener and putting it flat against the top of the can instead of holding it down the side of the can.

Avila demonstrates using the can opener the flat way and says, “…the can opens the correct way without having to dig your fingers in there.” Isabella also gives hacks on keeping boiling water from overflowing with a plate and wooden spoon placed on top of the pot and she swears by flipping pancakes by holding the pancake on a spatula while flipping the pan, however, when someone asked about oil spilling out Avila’s advice was, “panic.”
