[Top 3] Best Camping Can Openers Review & Buying Guide [2022]

Hanging out with friends and family is fun, and having fun is right for everyone. Sometimes we just need to stay away from our busy lives and take some rest with the beauty of nature. And to do that “Camping” is the best option.

So, when we get bored with our daily life, you know all that working. We pack our backpacks with all the necessary stuff and leave for the search for rest and fun.

We need many things during camping. Tent, food, equipment et cetera. And “Can Opener” is one of those needed things. By Can Opener I mean “Camping Can Opener”.

In this article, we are going to discuss the Best Camping Can Openers. Camping Can Openers are usually small so they can easily fit in your backpacks or even in your pockets without occupying much space.

Here are the best camping can openers we found after researching on different platforms and asking consumers.

We focused on several factors during our research including size, performance, and efficiency. So, here is the list.

1. P-38 Can Opener and P-51

P-38 Can Opener and P-51 Can Opener

This is a set of two can openers. P-38 is a small one made for normal and usual cans while P-51 is for large can openers. These Cans are made by Shelby Company (not by peaky blinders’ “Shelby Company” though).

You would hardly have encountered such small-size Can Openers. These Openers can easily fit in your pocket and even you can fit them in your key ring.

However, some people will find these openers really hard to operate. As they leave sharp edges and are really small in size, it can be hard to move them along the lid of the can. But as you will not use it in your house.

You will use it camping, so I don’t think it is a big deal. However, be careful about its sharp edges.

Despite its size and all other things, you can use it for various needs. For example, you can use this Can Opener as a screwdriver, cutting edge, groove cleaner.

Which is perfect for Camping, isn’t it? Simply clean it after use to prevent any rusting.

Pros and Cons

  • Multi-Tool
  • Size of Can does not matter
  • Small size: can easily fit in your pocket
  • Leave Sharp Edges
  • May catch rust

Unlike other camping can openers in our list this one is a Multi-Tool can opener. We added it to our list because of its unique features. It contains 15 tools in itself.

It will not only help you in opening your cans but it will also handle your other tasks as well.

For Example, it has screwdrivers of multiple sizes and it also has a bottle opener. Including, it has 15 different tools.

If you are thinking about its size then don’t worry, it can easily fit in your backpack and pocket.

It is also easy to use, just move the can opener in a forwarding direction, and the lid of your can will be removed easily without any extra effort.

Nogent Classic Mini Kim Metal Left Handed Tin Can Opener

This Can Opener is really easy to use as compared to the previous two Can Openers because of its handle.

You can easily use it by holding its handle just like a common manual Can Opener. But the thing that makes it different from the common manual can openers is its size. That is why we added it to our list. You can easily put it in your backpack.

The good thing is this it comes for both kinds of people, left-handed and right handle. It has a sharp blade that is made of stainless steel and it leaves no sharp edges on your can and removes the lid of the can perfectly.

Pros and Cons

  • Stainless Steel Blade
  • Available for both; Left and right-handed people
  • Size of the can does not matter
  • Easy to use
  • It is not multi-functional
