    just made a tuna salad with noodles. and i just hate draining the tuna..

    i have tried the plastic drain do-dad for the smaller cans of tuna..but it doesnt work on the larger cans.

    i really don't want to pay the extra money for the bagged ready to use tuna!

    so,how do you drain yours?!

    Squish it down with the cover over the sink.

    Sometimes, I put it in a colander and squish it down with a spoon or my fingers. . . .

    I drain mine by squeezing the top down and drain it into the kitties bowl. They love me on those days LOL :D

    my can opener opens the can from the sides.it rolls the edges so you can't cut yourself on it..so no squishing down..
