A new twist to opening bottles and cans


Opening cans and bottles can be a challenge for some seniors with limited hand strength and others with special needs. Youngsters may find popping open a soda can difficult. Women with freshly manicured nails might not want to dig under tabs for fear of ruining the finish. 

Along comes the Extreme Magic Opener to make it easier to open any kind of cans with tabs or bottles with pop-off or twist-top caps. The 4-in-1 device has a slot to grab a tab or pull ring to easily open food cans all the way with its leverage. There's are built-in grabbers so twisting off small caps is easier with a larger handle. A traditional opener can pop off bottle caps.

The Extreme Magic Opener is available at, starting at $19.99.
