How many camping trips have you been on, and the can opener breaks? It is a common problem to deal with. There are so many different styles of can openers out there, it is hard to know what will work best for your needs. In this article we’re going to explore some of the most popular types of camp kitchen gadgets and how they compare.
Crank Can Opener: This type of can opener is a little more complicated, but it requires less effort to use. It has a lever that you hold down with one hand as the handle turns and pulls open the top of the can. Sometimes this style will have separate attachments for different size cans or lids. They are not always easy to find in stores, so your best bet might be ordering online if you need this particular item.
Pull Tab Can Openers: These types of camp kitchen gadgets work by applying pressure on both ends of an aluminum pull tab (the inner part) until the seal breaks and allows access into opening up the metal disk at its center. You then place this over your mouth.
