Although it's obviously intended to keep cans of pet food fresh in your fridge it works equally well to keep canned chipotles or tuna fish fresh.
It had always bothered me that most of the can of chipotles would end up going to waste since I'd open a can of them, use just a tiny bit as I am quite wimpy about spicy food, and then lamely try to keep it fresh by covering it with some tin foil and a rubber band. It just did not work.
But now, my kitty can saver allows me to extend its stay in the fridge for many, many weeks. One nice thing about this can saver is that it's adjustable - the lid has several different circumference rings that will fit different sized cans. I got it at my local hardware store for under $2 but you can also find them online.
