The worst part of making tuna sandwiches is not the sweet vs. dill pickle debate, but rather trying to drain the liquid from the can. With this handy little tuna press, you'll stop smooshing the sharp-edged lid down on the tuna and tilting the can to drain. Remove the lid, place the tuna press over the can, and push down. The liquid will rise to the surface and you can dispose of it easily. A part of the Can Colander series from Progressive, the press also comes in handy for draining syrup from cans of fruit. --Dana Van Nest

If you eat a lot of tuna like I do, you need one of these. Still using the lid to strain the water out of your tuna can? Ever pressed so hard half your tuna spilled out? Ever sprayed yourself with smelly tuna water? This great little strainer allows you to get the tuna as dry as you want without the mess. I wish I had invented it.

Simple little item makes straining tuna much easier! My first inclination was to dump the tuna into the strainer. Wrong! LOL Leave the tuna in the can and press the strainer into the can. Too bad it didn't come with instructions! Duh.

This is awesome. No more smelly water splashed on everything.Also you can drain all the water out so the tuna is dry. You can also use it to break up your tuna. Draining juice out of cansis great also because I bake quite a bit and this is so handy and it's also great for when you want to fill canning jars. There are many uses for this little item. Smart person who thougth of this.

I've had one of these for over 3 years now and use it predominantly for canned tuna straining. It works like a champ and is dishwasher-safe. My daughter just recently moved out on her own and requested this as a Christmas present since she can't have mine! Simple design, simple to use.

Seriously, why didn't I think of buying something like this years ago? Not sure why there are ANY negative reviews on here about this product because it does EXACTLY what it says it will do! It fits perfectly in a standard tuna can (as well as I am sure other types of cans/jars, etc but I can't speak to that yet). The fit is so good that absolutely no tuna has escaped in the 5 or 6 times I have now used it and the tuna is pressed DRY in 5-10 seconds! The unit is very sturdy and does not flex at all - no feeling that if I press too hard it will bend or break. I no longer get any mess on my hands, other than getting the tuna can lid out of the can so I can use this perfect invention. Having used it and having no more frustration with tuna squirting out of the can when using the tin lid to press it, I can honestly say I would pay double - not that I want to - but I would. It simply does what it says what it will do. Period.

This is an elegant, simple solution to a messy problem. I've had mine for 3 years. Works well on standard size tuna cans, and we also rinse canned beans with it. Much easier than trying to use the can lid to strain/sift the fluids out. Cleans easily in the dishwasher.

There are two things this can colander is for: to fit OVER a standard 14-15 oz can (think corn, beans, etc) and to fit IN a regular 5 oz can of tuna. However, not everyone will be able to use it for tuna, it depends on your can opener. If you have a regular, side opener, then maybe using the detached metal lid to press out the water is still the best option - I really don't know, I haven't had that kind of opener in years. If you have a top opener and you like tuna, then this colander is a MUST. With a top-side can opener, the lid will not fit in the tuna can to press the water out. This colander fits perfectly inside of a tuna can - set it, grab it, flip it, squeeze it, done. I couldn't live without this thing. In fact, this is my second since my kids somehow lost my other one and I couldn't have a tuna sandwich until I replaced it.

Interestingly, I ordered the white one but was sent a bright turquoise can colander. I love it the bright color because it makes it easy to find among the other gadgets but I don't know how or why I received that color.

I DO recommend this product.
