THERE'S nothing worse than trying to open a can of food while making dinner and accidentally breaking a nail.

But one woman has come up with a brilliant hack to stop that from happening – and it's been labelled a game changer.

She took to TikTok to show off the clever trick, demonstrating on a tin of pie topping.

Instead of using her fingers to open the ring pull, she slid the handle of the spoon as far through the ring as it would go.

She then lifted up the handle so that the rounded part of the spoon was resting on the other edge of the tin – effectively opening the can.

Once the ring pull had been opened, she lifted up the spoon so that the handle lifted the lid up and the can was completely open.
