Old Age Strikes Again.

This time a major blow - no more Fray Bentos pies.

They're too big for the electric opener, and my arthritis is no longer up to a manual tin opener.

The end gets ever nigher!

Should not be a problem, try this.

they've got those on Amazon as well, and I'm sure I've seen them in shops in town.

[They're too big for the electric opener] And no good with the manual opener either. Like you gave up trying to open them.

Pie £1 Opener Price:£14.95. Looks like no more Pies.

I think you misread my post - they are too big for the electric opener

you'll need to go for the frozen ones, then. Not quite as good but still passable.

"Pie £1 Opener Price:£14.95", but you can probably get a nice homemade pie in a cafe for less than a fiver.

Pukka Pies like they have in the Chippie are available in Tesco and probably most other supermarkets.

Pukka Pies.

Excellent pies, our favourites at present, and you don't need a tin opener.

Petrol cost to Much Wenlock (Salop) Butcher's shop in main street from my house about £30. Cost of two dozen pies for freezing about £30. Satisfaction at having a proper Steak and Kidney Pie to scoff "Out Of This World". No openers required at all. A bit expensive innit? So next time anybody is going that way can they please call in and bring some up to me? "Thanks in advance!"

No I didn't, these fit any can, you leave the can on the worktop and stick the opener on to it and it works it's way round it. you dont even heed to hold it.
