only thing is the glue gun must be a very high wattage

How would you do this with a soldering iron?

this is a great idea.. but today when i was makin one i was like, you dont use all of the heat it generates by far.... so i did it my way. i wrapped the heatgenerator and about 15 cm of the cord in aluminumfoil and just put it inside the can... that way you use almost all the energy it generates

Don't let the heating element fall apart while pluged in... it exploded on me, no harm done though but it made a loud pop

author

Yeah, Definately, Taking two peices of hot metal creates deadly radiation
Before you ask Stupid questions use google, or at least get some common sense

This is a great glue gun hack!

But I'm pretty sure it is dangerous to cook in cans. Food cans have a plastic lining. Even without cooking there is major concern about a chemical called Bisphenol A in canned food.

Independent laboratory tests found a toxic food-can lining ingredient associated with birth defects of the male and female reproductive systems http://www.ewg.org/reports/bisphenola

Heating the plastic inside cans is probably going to release things into your food that you don't want to eat.

Use a pot just to be safe.
