Great concept with a tragic flawits too hard to open. My wife made me return it because she couldn't open it. The opening mechanism is something like a large bill bottle, just a harder. It requires some amount of hand and arm strength and technique which she couldn't manage. And I have to admit I struggled with opening it too. The can's wide opening, lightweight and clear walls were a positive but all of it is worthless if you can't get in to get your food.
