My new favorite kitchen gadget! Lid Lifters

It started out of necessity.
You see I've always just picked up my can openers, used them and thrown them out and bought new ones. This happened far too frequently for my taste, partly due to the fact that someone puts them in the dishwasher all the time and they get rusty.

So I got a gift card for my birthday and I was determined to splurge on a can opener. My rust, easy to turn...that is about it. Well when it comes to can openers they are all metal so the rust factor was a huge issue...

Until I entered the world of LID LIFTERS!

Why a lid lifter? They do not cut your can, they unhinge the lid. This way there are no sharp edges AND guess what? It doesn't even get near the food so there is no washing needed...hence no rust!
Okay, another cool thing is that the way it removes the lid you can put the lid back on too. Bonus!
The one above that I bought is by Kuhn Rikon.
(you don't have to get a whale one).
Do not fret about the price though because I got mine here for $6.99! The same I would spend for "the can opener".
If you have the same can opener dilemma in your house, I strongly urge you to check out lid lifters!

The time has come!

I have always been in awe of talented women who have passion and drive!

We see them all over blogland right?

I've always known I had something inside of me that could grow into something bigger (besides children-haha).

I LOVE to choose just the right gift for that certain someone. And of course I love shopping! I was recently talking with some couples and a husband said, "I would pay someone to help me shop for my wife on her birthday." The wife said, "I would love someone to help him shop for me on my birthday." I knew I had found my new baby...introducing...
