Turn landfill waste into reusable metal in seconds.

Spent Jetboil fuel canisters are recyclable as long as you use the CrunchIt Fuel Cansiter Recycling Tool to safely vent the pressurized butane before you toss them in the appropriate bin. Reduce your impact on the planet that you live to explore with this can-opener-shaped tool. Designed to relieve the pressure from your butane Jetpower canisters (and some similar models) and easily puncture the housing with the CrunchIt’s sharp stainless steel tooth. Then you can recycle it as tin or steel with most local programs.

It works!

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Easy and straight forward to use.
I always get nervous about what to do with these canisters once they're done. Now I don't have to worry about it.

It works!

Simple tool to do your part

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Don't just toss your iso cans into the trash. Use this simple tool to pop the seal and recycle!

In addition to opening beers...

...this little guy can also puncture Jetboil (and other) fuel canisters for safe disposal/recycling. From Jetboil website:

- Rugged stainless steel construction

- Safely vents fuel prior to puncturing

- Bottle opener and jet orifice wrench integrated into handle

- Clips onto carabiner or key ring for convenience

The can-opener-shaped tool is sharp - sharp enough that I wouldn't attach this tool to a key ring and stick it in my pocket!


Easy to use.

This is really easy to use and makes recycling canisters easy. You can go with out it and use other tools you have but jetboil is starting to include these with some of their canisters so if you pick up one of those you get this with it so why wouldn't you use it?

Does this work on the snowpeak giga power canister?

Best Answer

Yes, it will. You thread it on to the EN 417 Lindal valve, bleed it out if you need to, then rotate to puncture a few times. That standard is what you'll find on all the major brand canisters like Jetboil's.

A jab or two with a pocket knife works well, too. Canister walls are thin.


Great idea!

    Easy to use and worth the $6 to recycle all your canisters. I would suggest this product to anybody that uses canisters. Awesome tool to have!



      This is brilliant! I'm so excited that I don't have to feel guilty anymore about using these fuel canisters!


      Ingenious Idea

        Don't mind spending a couple of bucks to help me recycle my fuel canisters. I had a stack of empties in my garage waiting to take to the appropriate place, now I can just recycle them easily. Not much you could do to improve this product...unless it could open a beer too.

        Highly recommend this for anybody who uses canisters.

        Guess what?! It can open bottles of beer!!

        The opposite side of the part that screws into the canister serves perfectly as a bottle opener



          Unless you happen to be a villan from Captain Planet, you should probably have one of these. Nice to have a product to help me help the planet!

          The carbide tip of a trekking pole works well. Who needs a product when you already have a resource that will puncture any canister made? Points for addressing a serious recycling issue though.

          Nail + hammer. I love the ease of this tool, but if a canister is really empty, putting a puncture hole in it using a nail is just as effective.

          I bet you a rusty steak knife could do it too. Sorry, some of us don't walk around with carbide tipped trekking poles. Yikes.
