    If there is a better sub category for this to be in please move it.

    Ok so I searched “Dented Cans” on here trying to actually get an answer for my question. All I came away with is viewpoints of other members but no actual science backing either viewpoint.
    My question is this, Why should I not buy dented (and often discounted) cans from the bargain store? As long as there is no piercing of the can I’m not sure why this matters. The only thing I can reason is maybe if the can is actually creased, not just a mild dent, after 5 years or so it might be a failing point if the storage area is compromised.

    Thank you all in advance.
