If you've been opening cans by placing the can opener on the SIDE, then you've been doing it WRONG and have been exposing yourself to unnecessary danger! Like most people, I too was taught this incorrect method. When my wife show me a video of a guy using the CORRECT and SAFE method, I was like "How am I JUST learning this NOW? Do you know how many times I've cut myself?"

Not only do you run the risk of getting cut, if the top falls into the can, whatever was on the top, is now in your food! But you're never too old to learn something new, so before you open up that next can of tuna or beans, check out this video and make things a little easier on your self.
