We had one of these when I was growing up. My parents used a splash of evaporated milk to make cups of cocoa more creamy, in oatmeal and Cream of Wheat, and in homemade icings and cream soups. Leaving the opener on as a lid prevents spills in the refrigerator and punctures small pour holes in the can.

I don't know if these are still commonly sold, but I never see them around. I found this dandily decorated one at Cobwebs Antiques in Salt Lake City.

I've never seen one in plastic. The ones my parents had were steel, but didn't have this cool embossing.
