This can opener is very strong and sturdy. We open a lot of can in our kitchen and we needed something strong. This does the trick.

I am starting to think my kitchen staff is hard on can openers because we have gone through a number of them. This one has held up better than most but doesn't always cut all the way around the cans. Sturdy construction. Overall don't love it, but certainly don't hate it.
Lesleigh M. from Highland Table Posted on 12/05/2015
Not very good.. Maybe I received a defective product but at least 50% of the items I open with this can opener leave spots that it goes over and does not cut the can. I've almost cut myself a couple times having to pry the rest of the lid of the can off. And the cans I'm using this for aren't anything strong either, just simple things like tuna, beans or vegetables. My previous can opener was a cheapo one from a big box store and it has worked flawlessly for many years, but it is just so rusted up that I thought I'd get a new one. Opt for the more expensive one if you can, it will probably last you a bit longer.

This is your basic manual can opener. Nothing fancy, just a very efficiant and easy to clean product. makes a nice clean cut through any size can.

Nice can opener. Solid unit. Gear and turning mechanisms are very nice. Really good product that makes nice smooth cut. Nice and compact. Good product.

For the price, keep the best brand manual can opener in the catch-all drawer as a back-up. With Swing-a-Way, you can't go wrong on the quality, will always get the job done!

I have used Swing-A-Way can openers for years. They last years longer than other brands. When i bought this one i was unhappy to find they are no longer made in the USA. However this new made in China model seems as good as the old one.

I like this can opener for it's functionality - it cuts through tin easily and makes very neat cuts without much effort. The edge seems to hold very well after a year of home use. I did notice a few spots where there a little bit of rust though, which is to be expected with a chrome plated product that is not being taken good care of. To avoid rust, make sure you wipe it dry after washing. Otherwise, a very functional can opener and a good value for the money.

This can opener is a revlelation for me. It opens cans very easily, and it is not hard on your hands. You barely need to put pressure while you open cans, which makes it very comfortable to use. Very happy with this purchase.
Faye S. Posted on 05/12/2015
We have used this successfully for almost a year now. It has been great (worked smoothly and easily and was easy to clean) until just recently. It has started to leave 2 tiny spot around the cans uncut. That is slightly annoying, but what is worse is that is has started to tear up the paper around the top of the can, so that when you pour the contents out, you may also get tiny bits of confetti from the label falling into your food. Other than that, it has made can-opening life simple and stress-free for nearly a year.
Wendi A. Posted on 11/20/2014
Though it came a little dirty, it cleaned up easily. In terms of the actual construction, this can opener is solid and heavy (unlike the Walmart ones I used to buy). As of now, it goes through cans as if they were made of butter. I'll update my review if this dulls easily but based on my initial impressions, I doubt I will have to.

This item has been around forever. Perfect for my kitchen. I do have an electric can opener, but this one is used for power outages and for when the electric one is acting up.
Charlie C. from NASTC Catering Posted on 05/08/2014
A good all around can opener. This is solid well built can opener for a good price. I would but this again over the rest.
Matthew T. Posted on 02/27/2014
Excellent quality. Great price. Easy to use. I have hand arthritis and need a good can opener that is not difficult to operate. This one fills the bill.
Margaret M. Posted on 01/05/2014
Everyone should have a portable can opener in their kitchen with a spare one in you emergency kit. One just cannot beat the quality of the Swing-A-Way Portable Can Opener. Smooth to operate, easy on the hand and cuts beautifully. Thank you Webstaurant Store for bringing it to us at such an economical price! Will be back for more of these.

Finally a can opener that wont break or bend. We open 7 lb cans with these every day and have never had issues. Plastic stays on and easy to dishwash.
Michael F. from Amish Market Square Posted on 05/02/2013
for the price they are ok. Do not try to use them for # 10 cans. they may open several but then they break. they are made for smaller cans.

have not seen one of these in years. 5 church key can and bottle opener. it works good. nice for the kitchen. and at a great price.
Anita T. from nitas place Posted on 12/27/2012
This is the only can opener you will need! It is old fashioned but does the job right every time! Other brands just don't do the job as well and some just don't do the job.
Kathleen H. from Kathy's Kreations Posted on 11/17/2012
Nice, old fashioned can opener. Heavy weight, always reliable. Much better than any store bought can opener and the price is right-can't be matched in the area.
Michele S. from church Posted on 05/04/2012
These are great for opening small cans in restaurant and home use. Sometimes you can open a really small can with those huge table mounted openers and you need one of these!
Tom M. Posted on 03/28/2012
A quality can opener is a must have. This one definitely gets the job done well. It feels sturdy and comfortable in hand and operates very smooth. Great value. Highly recommended product.
