    Default Poll: can openers . Plz just choose A or B

    Yes, I'm still hot on the trail of a good manual type. I've suffered
    even thru various youtubes and it seems that the field narrows to two
    types.

    A. the top cutting one

    B. the side cutting "no-sharp edges" type.

    Your vote, please.
    Thanks, guys.

    I'd go with the top cutting. I have tried the side cutting and it
    doesn't work well or at all on some cans -- those from Hunts tomato
    products come to mind. There are some other name brand cans it
    doesn't work on.

    I have to go with B; it's handy in you can use the top lid as a cover
    if you need to store the leftovers in the refrigerator.

    I've never tried a side cutter. Don't think I've even seen one in
    person. My top cutters have lasted so long that I expect they'll last
    me until I die (guess I don't open many cans, seeing how others here
    on rfc seem to plow through can openers) and then they'll work well
    for someone else after that.

    Swing Aways are not expensive, and work well.

    Mine always rust. Just bought another new one last year and it is already
    rusted.

    A. Top cutting.

    Honestly, though, I've never used a side cutter because my top cutters
    are working well and I haven't had to consider replacing them. They look
    to still have years of good functionality in them, so I'll stick with
    them because they're already here.

    How does that happen, do you let them sit in water? Why throw them
    out, does rusting cause them not to cut?

    Why wouldn't you just use plastic wrap?

    Most of the new can openers I've seen are
    stainless steel. They won't rust.

    No, I don't let them sit in water. I don't know how it happens. But once
    it does, you can't clean it off and it puts bits of rust in the food.

    These are Swing-Aways. Maybe it's not rust but it looks like that it is on
    the cutting blades.

    Ive been using both since the 80's. The side cutters allow you to reuse
    the can for electronics or arts and crafts projects. I'll put the lid
    back on and stash the unused food in the fridge. If you want to strain
    the liquid from the contents of the can you pretty much need to use a
    regular opener. If you need to push the contents out of the can from the
    bottom, you'll need to use a regular opener. Keep both on hand and then
    use the correct one for the job.

    If portions need to be refrigerated, cans of whole green Chiles for
    example, the side opener is preferred.

    Tuna fish cans are mandatorilly top opened so you can press out the water
    or oil.

    Canned soups and other products are nowadays pull top open, when there
    will be no need to preserve any.

    Can openers have basically become a thing of the past, imho!

    A. B just seems silly to me. I've never cut myself on a can lid. I see no
    reason to open cans from the side.
