Doubtblush: Tuna Press Box

We found this. We couldn't believe it was real - that people would pay cash-money for it when they could instead spend it on food or something awesome. But it IS real, and people DO buy it. There are just some things we'll never understand... So we Doubtblush 'em.

We're confused... The Tuna Press Box ($8) presses down on a tuna can and allows you to drain the water or oil from the tuna. Um, correct us if we're wrong, isn't that what the lid is for? Oh, what will they come up with next?!

Yes, BUT opening a can with a traditional can opener creates the potential for metal shavings to get into the can. Using one of the newer openers leaves the entire lid intact, but then it can't fit into the can (ha!!) to squeeze the fish. Not saying the device is necessary, but it does have a valid reason.

You have not won me over, js! Anyone else want to try? I welcome any and all arguments for this Doubtblush with an open mind.

I have to agree with js. Using one of the newer can openers that cut into the side of the can instead of cutting through the top makes it impossible to use the lid as a squeezer. You can only angle it in and get out some of the water, but not all. The device still isn't worthwhile though; I just squeeze out the last bit of water with a sheet of paper towel.

Now I have to consider whether my can opener is dated! The Horror!

I can appreciate the idea because I always end up draining tuna juice all over my hands anyway with the lid method, but I hate having kitchen gadgets like this that only work for one thing. I mean I guess if you ate a lot of tuna...

Okay, if it was 3 bucks I'd buy one. Two reasons. First I hate that my hands always smell like tuna after squeezing with the can and two I like my tuna DRY. Like really really dry. The lid squeeze never seems to get all the water out.

Are we all forgetting the main reason this product is not worth it? You can buy tuna now in a pouch!! No draining required!!
