On this day in 1825, the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans was granted to Ezra Daggett & Thomas Kensett of New York City, after developing the process in 1819.

It wasn't until 1858, over 30 years later, that Ezra Warner invented the can opener. Prior to that, tin cans were hacked, chopped, and chiseled open.
