When you use a can opener, does the lid ever fall down into the can? Then it's a pain to get out? Well, it turns out that happens because we've all been using can openers wrong our whole life!

If you hold it like most people do, the part on the can opener that turns is facing out to the right when you're opening a can. We're talking about the part you have to crank.

But that part should be facing up!! If you do it the right way, it cuts through the SIDE of the can instead of the top, this way the lid won't fall in. The bonus is it keeps gripping the lid when you're done and it pops right off, and you never have to touch it. Someone re-posted an old video last week of how to do it. It's obvious once you see it.Grab a can, and try it. Who has some beans?!
