    Is there a method other than just opening the can and pushing the top into the tuna to force the juice out? Half the time all the juice doesn't get out and if it does it takes too much tuna with it. :o

    I just use the top of the can and I press really hard while tilting the can over the sink.

    I always put the open can w/lid on top of a cup and push down, u can squeeze most of the juice out without losing much tuna.

    After eating 2 cans of tuna with mayo and relish that was more like a soup than anything else, I decided there had to be a better method. :squint:

    my g/f bought one, never knew you could use it for tuna... doesn't seem like it would work all that well for getting most of the juice out. Guess I'll have to try it.

    It looks pretty cool to me, I will buy one and try it. For the ultra lazy they have those tuna packets that have very little juices and open with just your hands. I mean I open my can bare handed but hey...

    I just use some kind of cylinder (a plastic cup turned upside down, or if you know a metal shop, metal tube) put in the sink, turn can upside down onto the cylinder, press down on bottom of can.

    hands stay dry, tuna gets dry.
