How to open canned food without an opener
- Pre-jar should be placed in a plastic bag, so as not to cut yourself and the contents did not spill out when it opened.
- Take a jar in a horizontal position, with the fingers of both hands try to make a dent in the middle of its side surface. It is necessary to press on the edges so that the bank is bent.
- From the opposite side of the can make exactly the same dents.
- After that, with two hands, you need to take the bottom of the can, and begin to make counter-translational movements until the can is cracked in this place, after which it can be broken into two parts.
- If the jar is not high, but flat, then the principle of opening it is similar: you need to make two or three dents on the two sides, then alternately squeeze them until a crack appears in the fold between them. When it becomes large enough, the jar can be broken into two parts and take out the contents.
How to open a tin can with a spoon
Another existing way to open a tin can without an opener is to use a stainless steel tablespoon, since aluminum is too soft. To do this, fix the jar with one hand so that it does not slip out. The second hand with a spoon you need to press on the jar in the place where there is a notch on the lid near the tin edge. In this place the metal is quite thin, and after a while a gap is formed here. By pushing and widening the slit over the entire diameter of the lid, you can lift and remove it.
The second method is more labor-intensive: you should rub the spoon on the edge of the canned food until a gap is formed, after which it is necessary to walk it over the entire diameter of the circle.
