What to do with Extra #10 Food Storage Cans

We recently asked our facebook readers what they are doing with those extra #10 cans lying around. Well we had some great ideas and wanted to share them with you. You guys are so awesome and we appreciate you sharing your experience and creativity!

Extra #10 Cans

  • Decorate them with printed paper, ribbon, and anything else to make them cute. Fill them with fun stuff (candy, lotion, soaps, etc.) and give them out as presents.
  • Make a #10 can stove for yourself or a gift.
  • Decorate them and then fill them with flowers for center pieces at a party.
  • Use them to store all sorts of things like flour, and wheat from the big plastic buckets, trail mix, homemade crackers, gluten flour, etc.
  • Have your kids decorate them and make drums out of them.
  • You can use them to store buttons, sewing, pencils, crayons etc.
  • Make tin can ice cream in them.
  • Refalange it! (I’m not sure that’s how you spell it). There is a falanger which will take that rim off the top of the can and make it ready to seal again.
  • Put your first aid kit in it, and put it in your 72 hour kit (with a lid).
  • Put vitamins, hair ribbons, cooking spoons, or rolled napkins with silverware for picnics in them.
  • Put contact paper on the outside to make it more decorative.
  • Recycle them!
  • Use it for pre-made mixes in your fridge.
  • Use your #10 cans as containers for gifts –maybe an FHE kit all containing contents all about food storage.
  • Use them to put nails, screws, and other small objects. They help keep things cleaner in a shop or garage.
  • Use them while changing the oil in dirt bikes or the car.
  • Take #10 cans and paint them to match your kitchen. Then make vinyl stickers to label the contents of each can. They are decorative as well as FUNCTIONAL! Refill out of big buckets when needed!

What to do with extra #10 cans


  • Sarah

    I use a can opener that doesn’t leave a sharp edge. It cuts on the outside of the can, right near the top. I think they are around $10 and I’ve found them at Walmart and other kitchen supply stores. VERY nice, especially with little kids. And no mess when the can is opening.

  • Mamamo

    A reflanger (that is how you spell it), a gadget that forms a new flange on a can after it removes the old rim, is made by a man in Idaho.  David Gering in Nampa, Idaho makes a portable #10 can seamer. He also makes a can reflanger for #10 cans. (#10 cans are the larger cans that are just under a gallon in capacity. A true gallon can is a #12 can, but they are not commonly used for food.) The can reflanger cuts off the ring from the old lid and forms a new flange that will accept a new “double seam” lid. The reflanging and seaming chucks are electrically powered, but the operation of the rolls is manual. At about $1250 per machine, the seamer and the reflanger are more suitable for group use than individual use. David’s contact info is: http://www.geringandson.com. He has been making this equipment for over 20 years. The site has the seamer information. Ask him for the reflanger info.

    My husband puts holes in the bottom with nails and uses them to water specific areas of his garden and Blueberry beds.  Thanks for all the info.  Orris

  • Daryl Andrea

    For kids-You can turn them upside down, pierce 2 holes at the top edges across form each other, and then thread a rope(about 5-6′ long) from 1 hole to the other, knotting it in the inside. These are like what they use to use on “Romper Room”. Kids stand on the upside down cans, 1 foot per can, holding onto the rope ‘handle’ and walking on them! Could be a little dangerous, might want to try it on the carpet or lawn….

  • Andi_zorn_

    I wired a lamp socket thru one and turned it into a yogurt maker. I set a pan of warm water on top of it with the jars inside. The light bulb keeps it warm enough to incubate.

  • shoppin

    I know it may be a little late to chime in, but we also like to use them for BB gun target practice both the can and the cut out lid

  • S. Clayton

    I am interested in the reflanging idea. I heard there was one available somewhere for maybe around $25, but can only find reference to ones that cost ~$900. Do you know where I could get one? Also, I don’t have a basement and have a smaller house. I am working on my year’s supply, but am torn between the idea of using buckets or #10 cans. Which do you use for most of your supply? Thanks for your help! – S. Clayton

    • For things that we use a lot of, we like buckets (wheat, legumes,
      etc.). For things that have shorter shelf lives once opened, or that
      we aren’t using a lot now but want to store in case we need it for our
      year supply, we use #10 cans. It really boils down to your personal
      needs.

  • Could you sand it down with a heavy duty file or something?

  • Yvonne

    What do you do about the sharp lip on the new, extra #10 cans. I want to make some craft kits for children, but that sharp lip bothers me. Yvonne calvon@q.com

  • Kim

    I had this problem as well when I went to open my first can of storage. The canners you use to can at home have a thicker rim than the ones at the church cannery. The solution I finally found out was to just turn the can upside down and open it from the other end with the thinner rim. Hope this helps someone.

  • If you left a lot of it above ground, it could also help support the lower stems.

    Have did this one and children love it. Always want to make new ones every time.

  • Esther

    Turn you #10 cans into Berry Picking Cans. Just punch two holes near the top rim opposite of each other with a nail and hammer. Place a 2×4 inside the can and hammer nails from the outside. Be sure to tap the inside of the hole to get rid of sharp edges. Thread through some twine or rope to your desired length, waist high is easiest for me. Make one for each member of the family and have fun harvesting wild berries!

    Open both ends using a regular can opener, use the pointed end of a “church key” type opener to make holes all around the bottom, and use as a charcoal starter. It’s good for starting up the barbecue with only 2 sheets of newspaper! Works fast, too!

    You could fill the bottom inch or so with sand after punching holes in the side in a decorative design. With them weighted with sand place a candle in the bottom and light it. These would make great path lights and luminarias for special holidays and Christmas.

  • Another use with both ends cut out is as a charcoal chimney fire starter. Just punch some holes around the “bottom” with a churchkey-type can opener, for ventilation. Put some crumpled up paper or some other fire starter in with a few coals at the bottom, then put some more charcoal on top. Finally, have some tongs available to remove the can when the coals are going well. You can light the firestarter(s) through the ventilation holes.

    • The reason for the churchkey-type can opener, that’s the type which creates a triangle opening, is that it creates a little larger hole than most other types of punches.
      You may need to use pliers to fold the flaps down against the edge of the can, for safety reasons.

  • This is also known as a Hobo Stove. You use it with a buddy burner (tuna can with cardboard & paraffin wax) for the heat source.

  • I have seen this before for a Christmas decoration, though it doesn't need to be limited to any one holiday.

    Thanks for the reminder.

    May want to use the metal spoon idea to reduce the sharp edges inside, making it a little safer, just make sure to not close up the holes. Plus some sand or other weight in the bottom, to keep it from possibly tipping over.

  • I have mainly switched over to a can opener that cuts from the side, so there isn't a sharp edge in the can itself. I only use the old-fashioned can opener if I want to use the lid to help strain the contents.

  • This sounds interesting. More information, please.

  • You can use them as a pan, saucepan, etc, but you have to be extra careful since you don't have a regular handle and you could burn yourself.
    You can use them to carry food or utensils, just make sure that it isn't top heavy.
    You can make them into a stove (see Hobo stove in earlier posts)
    You can use them for water or dirt for fire safety.
    You can think of other uses, using your own creativity.

  • How do you make your own commercial wipes? Do you use regular paper towels, or something else?

  • I make my own cleaners and my favorite is I make my own commercial wipes. I have found that #10 cans with the fitted plastic lid with a slit cut in it make great wipe holders.

    You know how hard it can be to fill plastic bags, especially with liquid, right? Well, if you put the bag into the can and fold the top down over the can then the bag will stay open and upright while you pour/scoop stuff into it!

    I’d love more information on the flanger if anyone has some. I’ve heard that this is possible, but have no idea where to start looking for an apparatus like that. I have a friend who said their old stake had one, and anyone could sign up to use it, just like the normal canning machine. Thanks, oh wise ones!

    I use # 10 cans with both end cut out in the ground around my tomato plants. When I water my tomatoes, I fill the can with water and then I am sure that each plant gets a good watering.

    • If you left a lot of it above ground, it could also help support the lower stems.

  • What about using them for the portable heaters for your vehicles? The ones with the t.p. rolls and the rubbing alcohol.

    I have asked this before but thought I would reiterate here since I would love to see this picture and know what you did with these cans….but once again it is not a big enough picture.. I was hoping that you had read my comment before on the small storage space one that you can post a large picture that is small on your page but that you can click on and see a large version so you can see the details.
    It would be appreciated ….thanks

  • Beware of sharp edges on the #10 cans. After you open them, take the bowl side of a strudy metal tablespoon and run it against the inside edge of the can to assure that there are no sharp edges that can hurt you or your precious children. (I speak from experience, by the way.)

  • For a hand-style can opener, you can't beat the OXO brand. Look for one with cushy handles. I have arthritis and these can openers are easy for me to use.

  • Those are wonderful ideas! TY for sharing them with us. I remember when my daughter was a baby and I was still buying premade baby food. I had no idea what to do with those baby food jars..I came up with some clever uses too:) It’s amazing what you can think of when surrounding with some great material and hate to see it wasted. They became snowglobes, condiment holder for my husband’s lunch, and an idea from the tight wad gazette…spice jar holders under my cabinet:) So I look forward to using some of the bigger cans now.

    One idea I love is to fill the cans full of water, find a pattern of stars, tree, etc. Lay your pattern on the side of the frozen can, take a small nail and tap thru the design making pin holes. Then when the ice is thawed, dry the can and put votives in them. I hope I explained this well.

    My many uses include: Pencils, crayons, sissors, crafts.

    One year my son cut all kinds of misc. fabric and glued it to the can and gave it to me for mothers day.. We still use it.

    I love to do the Make A Mixes and use old #10 can for them. I just re-lable the top of the lid and write on the side with a sharpie.

    We LOVE LOVE LOVE to make Ice cream in a #10 can and even did it once while it was straped to the back of a four wheeler on the sand dunes. We enjoyed Ice cream in the heat at the top of the sand dunes. We also took it hiking in the Wastach Front Mountains and enjoyed a cool treat while enjoying nature.

    Has anyone else ever had trouble opening them? My can opener doesn’t seem strong enough, and I’m just hacking them open on one side, bending it a little, then pouring the wheat out of them (I only recently started buying them). The end result is obviously not nice enough to do much with except toss in the recycle bin. Any solution?

  • You missed one of my favorites. Take two cans, drill two small holes on each side near the bottom of the can, and put string through them. The kids can then turn them upside down, hold onto the string and use them as stilts.

      Oh Sam. I remember doing that with empty apple juice cans as a kid. I completely forgot about the joys of homemade stilts. I just got inspired to make a fun activity for my kids tonight 🙂

    Great ideas. I have a ton of empty #10’s I’ve been hanging on to wondering what to do with them. Now I know. Thanks
