How Does a Tin Opener Work?

Answer

A tin opener works by using a sharp rotating wheel that runs around the rim of the tin, cutting the lid in the process. This was how the first opener worked. Nowadays, the most popular tin openers now feature a serrated wheel that is added to support the cutting wheel on the rim of the can.
