The Ecko Miracle Roll can opener is a cheap "throw-away" can opener designed for basic use and no frills. The design is simplistic but when you look at it, it can be confusing to figure out how it works. However, once you use the can opener for the first time, you will be a pro at using it. You can put the can opener in your glove box, coat pocket or simply carry it with you for those times when you need to open a can.
Place the can opener on top of the can with the butterfly handle facing upward.
Slide the cutter blade (located on the side of the can opener) against the outside edge of the can. The cutter blade is identifiable by its a triangle shape.
Rotate the butterfly handle in a clockwise motion to spin the can opener around the lip of the can. As you turn the butterfly handle the cutter blade cuts into the edge of the can.
Lift the can opener off the lid. Remove the lid from the can.
