    Female, over 60. Have some kinda cordless can opener... Black & Decker. Like that the cutting part detaches to go in dishwasher. It shares an outlet (for recharging) with my KA stand mixer. A bit aggravating when I discover it was NOT plugged back in after mixer was used. Would love to find a GOOD manual opener, but probably not willing to pay a lot of money for one. If all else fails... I have a P38 on my key chain! Little metal thingie, thinking started coming with military meals in the field during Vietnam. Will KILL ya opening a BIG can but ALWAYS works. Also think it'll take bottle caps off and one end can be used at a screwdriver??

    Opening jars, especially ones with LARGE lids, can be difficult... as you get "older". I'm a yard saler & thrift store addict. Found a very "retro" jar opener by Edlund. Will do any size jar... from little caper jar to BIG pickle jar.

    The military can open you spoke of came out during or before WWII because my father carried his on his key chain until the day he died.

    Didn't realize P-38 was from WWII era!?! Got mine at a sporting goods & hunting store. They had a big wooden barrel full of them... something like 5 for $1! Maybe not easiest or most effecient way to open a can, but ALWAYS works!
