    Seems very well made and sturdy. Time will tell if this will hold up over time but it seems to be much more heavy duty than the ones I have worn out in the past.
    Worked great for about 10 months of very occasional use (once or twice a month) and was incredibly easy to use and quick at opening cans - of any size. Then, recently the handles have begun to loosen.. making the teeth lose contact with the can, resulting in the inability to open any cans. Bummer.

    The Swing-A-Way Large Crank Can Opener Easy Crank is great alternative to heavy duty can openers if you are opening infrequently. It can most definitely be a little awkward to use at first. Be sure to remove any paper labels before using. The paper may rip off and land in your food.
    My absolute favorite hand can opener. Works on number 10 cans too! it definitely can not be run through the dish machine or it will rust terribly
    This style of can opener does not last as long as it should for this kind of price. We open large cans of beans, etc, and we have a really hard time with can openers. We like the price point of the other brand regular can opener for the length of time they last - this one did not last any better or longer.
    I ordered this opener in December 2017 and another in January 2018. They are not used daily but one already broke today. They seem to look well made and we liked it which is why I ordered a 2nd one. Hope the other one holds up longer.

    what a wonderful tool.....I have tried many can openers......when catering I use large #10 cans...use to take a long time to open...not anymore...these are the absolute best can opener.....
    I loved this can opener! I used it for large and regular cans and never had a problem. It was so much easier to swing the big crank arm than twisting a knob....sadly I last it in the divorce...I need to get a new one soon!
    This is a great manual can opener, it it super easy and fast to use! It is really simple mechanics so it hasn’t broken down and feels really solid, I am a big fan!
    This can opener works very smoothly. The handle is long enough that I have to either lift standard size cans off the counter or have them hanging over the edge of the counter to avoid smacking my knuckles with every turn.
    My wife is left handed and this can opener make it easier for her to use. We liked it so much we bought one for home to and the price is right
    Bought a couple of these for our stores. Unfortunately, they can't handle the use, they all began to break after a couple months of use.
    We appreciate your review, John! We are sorry this can opener did not work for your operation. If you are looking for a product that will better suit your needs, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Works like a charm. Affordable, but makes the opening of cans a very easy process. Works great for commercial size food cans. Used for 6 months and still working just fine.
    Bought this and it worked great for about a week until cans started slipping from the cutter and the lids werent being cut all the way through. if you didnt use if for commercial it might be ok?
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry this can opener did not work for you; a Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly!
    We've been using this can opener for a few months now and it is extremely sturdy and works well on large and small cans. It's a perfect go-between from house-hold can opener to the heavy duty industrial one.
    For a small hand-crank can opener I am pleased with this product. The handle cranks easily and I have had little problems opening any cans with this product.
    This is a great opener - definitely easy crank. Perfect for a small kitchen since it is easy to store. The blade is sharp and opens any can with ease.
    Not the best can opener out there- that's for sure. It will get the job done, but its weak. Looking back, would have preferred to spend a little more and gotten a more solid product. For minimal use, this is a good option. But I don't think it can withstand daily, heavy use.
    The first one broke in the first month after buying them, the second one lasted a little longer. I expected more life out of them but a standard can opener only lasts a week at our shop. So all in all it most likely would be a great product who didn't put as many miles on them as we do.
    This can opener seems decent. Most of the time it works well. However sometimes it just has problems. I would like to think its not me, or maybe blame it on the can, but Ive def. used nicer ones. But its a bargain deal.
    We have purchased many of the Swing A Way Crank Can Opener. They only last about 6-8 months but I feel that it is a good value. Easy to use.
    Very good opener. It worked with ease and it's easy for my employees. Very good for the price and the shipping was fast. Very good product
    A can opener is a can opener and this one gets the job done. It survived about a year until we broke it on a can with a damaged lid that made it very difficult to open. Much better can opener than you can get at a big box/wholesale store locally so we're happy with it. We're on our second one and will continue to use these, which are very affordably priced.
    This can opener is wonderful to use at my home. It is very simple to use and it opens large cans in a flash. It is worth the money.
    I have to say, this is the easiest opener to use. I'm going to buy another one for my home. Everyone that uses it says the same thing thing.
    I've only used this a few times but it seems to work with ease. I have arthritis in my hands and anything to make the job easier is a plus
    I have been buying this can opener for years and i must say I'm lucky to get a month out of them and i don't know why. I have been trying to open a gallon can for 30minutes and it won't penetrate the can. This is my last buy of this can opener. Bummer
    We appreciate your review! If you have any concerns about the product you purchased please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Like fishing but opening a can of tomatoes all at the same time. Cans of Roland Dijon get weird but other that that its great!
    This can opener is not a favorite with my employees. Doesn't always cut all the way through the lid. Seems to be harder for a shorter person to use. Will not buy again
    This can opener does exactly what it is intended to, open cans. The crank feature makes it less labor intensive so any team member can do it
    Great in theory but did not last long before it stopped piercing the cans. I now have to pierce with another can opener and then this one will work to cut around. Not the best
    Purchased this for my grandmother who has a hard time using regular can openers. The ease of use is incredible. Blade is still sharp with heavy use. Anyone who struggles to use with cans needs this opener.
    Works great for the few items we use it for. Opens large cans no problem, easy to store and clean. Would recommend for back up.
    This can opener is awesome! It grabs the can well and you don't have to worry about it stripping out like cheap can openers. Give 20 out of 10.
    We love the large crank handle so much better then the small turn handle. Works well on small cans as well as #10 and #5 cans
    Why, oh why, did I wait so long to invest in a large crank can opener? I cannot think of another product that is so vastly superior over the household equivalent! The handle makes fitting it into a drawer tight, but who cares?!? Excellent investment.
    So far so good! I used this opener on a ##10 can and it worked great. I actually thought it wasn't working for a moment because it was so easily cutting the can, very sharp.
    What's not to like... Easy to use, easy to store. Solidly made and performing well. Like this better than a stationary mounted to the table as you can take it where you want...
    We just received this can opener and boy its sharp. It opens the can with little effort. We love using it as we have so much cans to be opened. Happy i bought it.
    This can opener is super sturdy, great addition to your kitchen, I need it a good heavy duty regular can opener and this one definitely what I need it, it opens the cans with no problems at all and it looks like will last for a long time.
    We LOVE this can opener. We have had other can openers that are not easy to use but this one works perfectly. No more struggling to open our cans.
    I love this can opener! Over the years I've gone through so many regular style can openers that I've lost count, but this one seems to have broken that streak. It grips the can well, doesn't skip or slide when you're turning the handle, and for a small business like mine where I don't have a place for a bench top can opener, this is fantastic! Also way cheaper than the bench can opener.
    Simple and basic. This can opener isn't anything fancy, but it does the trick. It is durable enough for minimal use and can be hand washed.
    5 Stars!! I love this can opener! My wrist are really bad and its easy to use. Great quality and price! Would definitely recommend and would purchase again.
    This can opener is perfect for big and small cans. Heavy and durable, it has worked like a charm since day one! Great price for an item as nicely made as this!
    Not really easy to cut through cans. It does the job with effort and force. Would prefer a stronger and firm handle, Overall its okay.
    junk.i have purchased several in the last year. one actually broke the first day. We open about 4 #10 cans a day. This is for sure a get what you pay for purchase. Don't have much space for tabletop model,but I'm going to have o find a way o make it work
    Thank you for your review, Jeremy! We are sorry this can opener has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    This can opener has lasted longer than most hand help openers, and is much easier to use for us older folks that fingers dong grip as tight as they used to.
    Easy to use and very durable have these over a year still going even with every day use . Used it on all size cans works wonderful . We recommend this product
    I absolutely love this can opener is the same one we use at work so I had to get one for myself for home absolutely work better than any hand can opener I've used
    Very smooth easy to use when turning the crank as long as you have room to turn it. i used it on a small can an dit worked well and so it should work on small and large cans= unfortunately it leaves a SHARP lid not safety edged at all so be careful and i suggest anyone recycle lids right after opening to avoid cutting yourself.
    We open lots of large cans and this is a great opener. Without a larger mounted united this is by far the best option. I tend to break can openers and this one has lasted.
    I've use these CanOpener's for years and my restaurant I've always like them they're strong durable and easy to use they do wear out after a while but for the cheap price you can't go wrong
    First time I have ever been unhappy with a purchase. Had to throw some away after one use. LOVE webstaurant.com! You are the best restaurant supply website on the planet!
    Thank you for the review! We're sorry this has not worked for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon regarding the warranty.
    This can opener is great. We would go thru so many regular can openers that were just not meant for commercial use. The crank is super convenient, and much easier to use than the small openers for big #10 cans.
    No complaints about this can opener, other than it is huge. It doesn't fit well in a standard utensil drawer. My mom ordered three she loved it so much.
    Great can opener. it is very well made and opens up can with ease. the crank style handle fits well in your hands and is very helpful in opening cans
    Love this can opener. It just zips around the can so easily. The ladies in the kitchen asked us to purchase one for home, when we put in our order.
    I was having trouble opening these #10 cans seriously my fingers but the Swing-A-Way Large Crank Can Opener Easy Crank fixed that problem real fast
    Works well when it's new but dulls VERY fast. After 30 days it's already completely useless. Please bring in a higher quality can opener. I don't mind paying a bit more for the convenience.
    Thank you for the review, Lina! We're sorry this hasn't worked as well as you had hoped. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly since this is under a two year warranty.
    easy to use for our employees but wish it was more durable and lasting. It started to come loose after about 6 months of usage.
    Thank you for the review! We wish this would have lasted longer. Kindly remember that this has a two year warranty for your convenience.
    of course everyone needs a can opener in their life, this is sharp and easy to open all sorts of cans, everyone should have one.
    These large can opener is easy to use , it works with handle, we used for a longer time compared to other ones we tried.
    This is the best can opener we've ever had. We have traditionally used the typical hand crank variety but that gets a little hard on your hands after extended use. This long easy crank version opens cans quickly and easily. We have also never had a problem with the blade jumping off the track of the can either.
    If you want an inexpensive way to open number 10 cans, this one one fits the bill. I would even venture to say that this opener is as fast to open a can as a table mount open er.
    Great for the price. Works best with medium sized cans and doesn't last forever, but for the price it's worth it (and way better than the alternative).
    While it doesnt open the can itself it is very easy to use. The non slip grip and large crank make it easy for the staff to use.
    want to save some money on a commercial table can opener this one will do the job for half the price opening cans with ease.
    We have big cans of gravy for breakfast and the little ones from the grocery store would not open the cans. I was looking for a less expensive solution and this worked out great.
    Great heavy duty can opener for use in kitchens where are counter mounted opener would be overkill. Sturdy and large enough to handle #10 cans but small enough to not be unwieldy for smaller uses.
    A true classic. I remembered these from my grandmothers house. They really of the same quality construction. You can tell that no matter how much it's used you will have it around for a long time.
    This large crank can opener is good quality. It is sturdy and durable and consistently gets the job done. It's a great buy! Five stars.
    This can opener could really be a life saver if you have a lot of large, tall cans to open--The crank takes the stress off your wrist. The cans need to be tall, however, otherwise the crank won't clear the countertop when opening. I deducted one star for that and also, it requires a larger storage space than a regular can opener. I would definitely recommend this for restaurant use.
    we have found these can openers to be the best kind and value. Our staff need to be able to open cans of fruit quickly and safely, not having parts of the can "missed" sections so they have to pry open the can lid.
    This can opener is super great for arthritic hands. Easy to use and cuts cans very fast. Commercial quality can opener. You won't be disappointed.
    For someone who hates manual can openers, this gem makes opening a can without electricity a breeze! Easy to use and simple to crank, this is a can opener everyone should have in the kitchen.
    This is an ideal opener to use in a mobile application. It is always dependable and easy to use. I would highly recommend having a couple on hand at all times.
    Love this opener. It really saves the wrist when opening multiple #10 cans. Durable and easy to use, I definitely recommend this opener. A+ in my book.
    Great opener and very easy to use. Especially if you are opening many cans at once. This opener is built to last for a long time. The only thing is if you crank it too fast it slips. Slow and steady and it'll open cans without issues.
    This Swing-A-Way Crank Can Opener is far in a way better than it's turn peg contemporaries. It is larger, and offers more leverage making cans easier to pierce. The crank handle is easy to use, opens can more quickly, and doesn't hurt your hands in the process.
    For the money this is a decent large crank can opener. It performs well and has not junked out on us yet. This item seems to be a fairly durable opener.
    This is strong and long lasting can opener. I have used it quite frequently to open all the kinds of cans and it works wonderfully.
    Nice crank, instead of using a commercial can opener installed at the far end of the table to open #10 cans, this baby does its job just as well.
    Nice heavy can opener. Just like our old one that finally was getting hard to open cans with but it was two years old and many uses.
    We have been hurting her wrists using household CanOpener's. Volume is too low for the counter one . Finally decided to buy this one and wish I did it sooner
    I have gone through about a half dozen can openers over the past few months. It seems that most can openers simply break when opening a #10 can. I decided to buy this can opener because of the great reviews. In fact, I bought 2 of them, so I could have a spare. Sadly, neither of them lasted after about 20 cans. At this point, neither can open or even grip a #10 can.
    Thank you for the review, Bill. We're very happy to say that this can opener is under a two-year warranty. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about this directly.
    Crank is extremely easy to use, cleans up well and has an extremely convenient drip handle that doesn't leave your hands smelling like lead! For the price it is well constructed and easy to use.
    The best can opener I have ever used. This opener is nicely constructed and can cruise through any style can. Makes opening cans a breeze instead of a hassle.
    Great price, easy to use, but can be a little awkward on #10 cans, it gets the job done, but can be a little tough when the can is slightly dented, but as expected
    They are the best for opening large cans i have a lot number 10 cans that i need to open at my house but now i can open them with ease.
    Very easy to use. Comfortable no stress handle. Crank is easy to turn without having to kill your wrist. Easily washes up with out rusting.
    Very sturdy can opener. It is much more large than I expected but it is easy to use and it makes opening cans a snap,
    We really recommend this swing large crank can opener. Its very practicall, ergonomic, durable, easy to use, easy to clean and has good size. If you have the opportunity buy it.
    This can opener broke really quickly. It probably only lasted 3 months. Spend the extra cash and get something more durable. Would not recommend to others.
    Thanks for the review, Tobias! We are sorry this can opener did not last as it should have. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to have this replaced under its 2-year warranty.
    Ease of use was on of the main reasons for purchasing this item. Well built. Smooth operation without the hassle of a regular can opener. The handle make it easy to open any size can.
    These can openers are great. Cheap and work for us. We use number 10 cans and they work great. We got them as backups but do better than the ones bolted on our worktables. Must have.
    Great item! I open alot of the #10 cans per week, this item opens with ease, no struggling with an electric can opener again! Great bang for the buck!
    It worked beautifully for about 20 cans and then all of the sudden wouldn't work well at all! It's actually dangerous to use it because of how bad it does. Most of our cans are number 10 cans. Is it not designed for that???
    Thank you for your review on this can opener, Lynelle. We’re sorry this is not working on your #10 cans as it should be. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in touch with you about this.
    I'm a can opener snob and this is the first can opener I actually like. Easy to use. Heavy duty. Opens cans without a lot of effort.
    We have struggled opening #10 cans with a standard opener long enough. I got this one and I like the hand crank ability and find that even with my arthritic hands it is very easy to use. It cuts the can open easily, is easy to clean, and can be easily put out of sight.
    Great price and super fast shipping ! I only use swing a way can openers and this model is very heavy duty it should last a life time under normal household use.
    I have used swing a way can openers for years and always thought they were unbeatable. These were the ones with a manual turn device. When I saw this, I was very excited about it being a hand crank. Worked well for a few cans and then hasn't done well since. Cheaper made then my original one and I would not purchase this again even though I still really like the swing a way brand.
    Thank you for the review, Donald! We are sorry this can opener did not last as it should have. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly.
    This is a nice can opener. We open some large cans and some large cans and this can opener seems to be able to handle both nicely. The price is great as well.
    I ended up donating away my electric can opener after using this for a few times. This tool is easier and faster (yes -- easier and faster!) than any electric opener I've tried. As weird as it sounds, this can opener actually makes me look forward to opening more cans.
    This one needs ten stars. Seriously, I know this may sound silly but this can opener changed my daily life. Yeah, yeah, I know it's a can opener, not a hoverboard or a cure for the common cold but let me tell ya, opening #10 cans on a food truck (no room for a counter model) can be a real pain when trying to use a standard hand can opener in limited space when multi-tasking. The frustration level was through the roof and we probably went through at least one every other week until we bought this one. It is a freaking BREEZE to open the big cans now, mere seconds compared to minutes and the cursing level has dropped 98%. Works great on the smaller cans, too. Funny how such a simple thing can make such a big difference.
    Easiest opener to use. As long as you are not opening a lot of cans. Still works good, but tiring. Love this opener would definitely buy another
    Do not waste your time or money purchasing this can opener. A year ago, I would have gave it rave reviews, but something must have changed in the manufacturing process as they now just do not hold up beyond a few openings of a #10 can. Had one that worked flawlessly for several years, but it finally got dull and the gear worn so I ordered a couple new ones. Neither of the new ones,. nor the one that I purchased for my home, work well. Just won't turn around the can when cranked.
    Thank you for your review, Tom. We are sorry this can opener is not working out for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon to work this issue out.
    Fantastic idea having the crank handle. I open cans in half the time. Stands up to #10 cans with easy. I feel having the handle gives me added leverage, and allows me to put more force into cranking the handle and opening cans faster.
    Got the item about a month ago. It is amazing the difference the hand crank makes instead of the finger and thumb crank. Very pleased with the choice. If you are a high volume business, probably need a table mount. I would definitely buy again.
    We recently ordered the Swing A Way Can Opener. My employees are so excited about it because it is a ton easier to use and less strenuous on the hands. And it works well on our #10 can items. I haven't had it long enough to know how long it will last, but for the price I'd have no problem ordering a new one every six months to a year. We open maybe a can a day so I think for that kind of usage it will hold up and last some time.
    So far so good. We were a little skeptical to order this opener due to some of the reviews, but it's working great. Seems to be well made and works great for opening #10 cans.
    Much easier to use than those battery operated types. Easy to use on any size can. I love it. Makes opening cans a breeze. A must buy
    Awesome can opener, moves smooth and opens even the biggest cans quickly without issue. Price can't be beat, lower than a junky can opener from the grocery store.
    Worked good for about 20 cans. Not for use to open #10 cans. I'm sure it would open the smaller ones for years, but if you use to open big ones spend a few more bucks and get the table mount can opener.
    Thanks for your review, Steve. We are sorry this can opener did not suit your application. Picking the proper can opener for your establishment can be difficult. Check out this guide on Can Openers to make the most informed decision possible to boost productivity in your work.
    I purchased this large crank can opener a while back and I must say it is far superior to home can openers. I'm actually purchasing a second one for my home since I like it so much!
    Here's one you don't want to skimp on. Buy the best, will never let you down. Crank handle makes quick work of cans without budgeting for the fancy commercial electric model! Swing-a-Way is the best, hands down, and you won't find it at a better price than at WebstaurantStore!
    Have owned this can opener for at least 1 month now, and I still love using it! Much better than the other can openers. Ideal for larger cans, but works just as well as on small cans!
    This can opener has been a life saver. Not all my cans are #10 so it isn't practical to use the big opener for smaller jobs. This is my new go to tool! Grips well, easy to turn and easier on my hands!
    Didn't stay sharp as long as i would have liked. Crank is a very nice feature, but i find the longer handles to be a bit awkward.
    I have been wanting one of these big can openers forever this one is very sturdy and opens cans with ease very well made I recommend
    This is the best hand held can opener I've ever had. It moves around the can smoothly and you don't need huge muscles to turn the hand crank. I'm so glad I purchased this.
    After having this can opener for a year, it still works pretty well for us. One of the easiest manual can opener I've used to date.
    A must have for every household. Can blast through normal sized cans as well and giant cans. Super fast, easy on the hands. Best can opener one can buy.
    I use this opener for home use only - replaced my electric counter top model. I feel it's more efficient than the electric one and of course doesn't take up any counter space!
    The kitchen staff had been complaining of the can opener for a long time. I checked out a few online and decided to take a chance on this one. Needless to say, it was the right choice. My staff was very grateful.
    These are a must have in the kitchen if you are opening a 10# can. Other can openers are impossible to use and will kill your hands! This crank moves easily and navigates can tops that are even damaged with ease. Highly recommend.
    if you have arthritis as I do you won't believe this can opener. I open many number 10 cans in the course of a year and I can't believe what a lifesaver this can opener has been for me. it's the best and it's cheap too.
    This a very heavy duty can opener, not much effort required when opening a can so it relieves stress from the wrist if many cans need to be open. It is easy to clean, does not rust and a must have in any kitchen. Works well with small, medium or large cans.
    It works to open cans. It does not work that great. The swing a way large crank is suppose to make it easier to open #10 cans, but it functions just like a regular cheap can opener - poorly. We would not buy this one again.
    Thank you for your review, Katrina. We are sorry to hear that this can opener did not suit you. Try this #1 Can Opener for a can opener more suited for larger cans in a busy restaurant environment.
    I didn't realize how large the hand crank was. This is definitely better suited for the #10 cans but in a pinch can also open the small cans as well. Either way it has a very smooth action.
    We owned one of these easy crank can openers that we purchased in 2014, however, it didnt take long for the cutting wheel to get dingy, rusty thus coming apart. We routinely use can openers for our environment and really depend on them.
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that the can opener you purchased began to rust after some time. We suggest this #1 Can Opener for a more commercial grade can opener.
    It is hard to find commercial grade hand can openers that don't break easily without purchasing the large one's, which are made for the large cans. This one is working now, but the handle seems flimsy, so I am sure that it will break as the other one's have broken.
    For a kitchen that doesn't use many aluminum cans and does not require a fixed countertop can opener, this is the best one you can find for regular use.
    Excellent. This can opener makes it easy to tackle those difficult number 10 cans that snicker at lesser openers. It's fast, easy to use, and does not take up too much room. Good value, too.
    A must have for #10 cans! Opens them like butter. Our old can opener broke on us during our work hours and this one saved us big time. We ordered two of these because we wanted one for a spare, but we've never used the spare one yet because the original one keeps on going for over a year of daily use. Nice!
    I thought it would be awkward and clumsy to use cause of it's size but i have to admit this one awesome can opener! It also eliminates the cramped hand and fingers you might get from the twist type lever can openers on the market, the crank style avoids all the hassle and delivers superior force to open the cans effortlessly. The price cant be beat either, you have nothing to lose except your old heavy can openers!
    After over a year of use, this can opener keep working like day 1. I like the ease of use and it never fails to open all our cans. Great product!
    Meh.... great while it lasts. Won't last long. If you open cans on anything one might consider to be a regular basis, do yourself a favor and get and Edlund: certainly easier and cheaper than buying these things continually.
    We appreciate your review! If you have any concerns about the product you purchased please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I have arthritis in my hands and this can opener is a dream to work with. I can open any can I want with out any hassle or pain. I would buy this over and over again.
    I have gone through two of these. The cutting wheel has come apart both times. Does not hold up very well in a kitchen environment!
    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear your can openers both broke. Your account has been credited for the defective units.
    The Swing-A-Way works fast and smooth. No hang-ups and no ghost cuts. I like this can opener because it doesn't cause my hands any discomfort. I bought two; one for me, and one to give to a friend.
    This didn't even last a month in our restaurant and we don't have many canned products. It actually starting leaving metal shavings in the cans and we had to throw away quite a bit of product because of this can opener. Honestly a cheap can opener from the store held up better than this.
    We're sorry this product did not work for you. Please contact our Customer Solutions Team with any questions you may have.
    Works great on all of our various cans. Usually cuts all the way around on first try. Definitely needs to be cleaned after almost every use though. Seems to collect a lot of whatever you're opening.
    Great can opener, The large crank handle makes it so easy to open the big cans. I bought three because i am very satisfied with it!
    I bought one from other company and paid twice as much. I was thrilled to see you carried the same product at half the price, and it is the very best opener I have ever had. I don't even use my electric one as this is more convenient and easier. Bought two more to give to older people who have arthritic hands and they thought it was Xmas. It was the best thing they received in a long time and were happy they could handle it in spite of their crippled hands. Was 1/2 the price I paid for my first one from another source and I plan to buy more for gifts. It opens all size and heights of cans with little effort. WONDERFUL PRODUCT.
    Great can opener, we use this at our second small location where we don't have space for a counter unit. It holds up very well with a ton of use.
    The can opener seems fine... but, it was obvious, based on the condition of the packaging, that the item had been returned by another customer... which makes for a less than professional presentation of the product.
    Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear you weren't happy with your purchase. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact with you shortly.
    This is a great option if you don't want to invest in a more commercial style can opener. It works well opening any size can.
    This is an awesome and simple piece of equipment to use. I would much rather invest in a couple of these than get prep. table can opener.
    what we needed without spending big bucks on electric and stop buying a new one every week from dollar store. looks built to last just needs a hole in it to hang it up on.
    I have been through a lot of can openers over the years. I purchased this can opener for my daycare and it was wonderful for the first couple of months but now it no longer opens the cans.
    Thank you for your review! A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact shortly to see how we can help.
    A very good heavy duty type can opener, we have used it many times over and the crank has not even started to loosen yet, like most others do.
    This opener works great! It is much easier and quicker at opening cans than the traditional opener but doesn't take up a lot of space at all. Great purchase!
    swing a way crank can opener easy crank this is my second on i am very happy with them they look nice and handle will
    I love this can opener. It is a bit bulky, but it opens up any can with ease. This is much better quality than the one I used to have, and at a great price.
    This was an excellent purchase! I am not a fan of electric openers and this gadget eliminates the need for one. Super easy to turn the handle - it's very sturdy and well-designed and takes all the pressure/strain off your hands. I also notice that you get a good clean cut, even with slight bumps in the can - it doesn't 'skip' the way many household manual can openers tend to do.
    I bough this can opener for our restaurant. It worked fine for the first month but stopped working properly after that. The opener would no longer function. Not well constructed.
    Thank you for your review! This crank can opener is an excellent value with many positive reviews. We're sorry to hear this has stopped working properly. Your account has been credited for the defective product. As always, please feel free to contact a Customer Solutions Representative if you have an questions or concerns regarding a purchase.
    use it for all cans, very easy to use and much better than the standard one, easy to clean and great price for great product,
    We've gone though so many different can openers in our kitchen. Most of them break quickly, not the case with this one! Also really like the fact that it works on small and large cans.
    I bought this for my father in law who has very arthritic hands. He can't stop talking about how much easier it it to use. A great product. Highly recommended!
    THIS CAN OPENER IS A MUST HAVE! I can't tell you how many can openers I ruined trying to open #10 cans...but this one is awesome! It's easy to grip and crank...so easy, my 7 year old can open cans for me! If you don't want an industrial sized can opener, then this is the one for you!
    This may be silly but I have always had trouble with can openers. I do not have the space for a big can opener so when I found this one I was so happy. Opening a can is so easy now
    We really like the way this opens cans - nice and easy to crank. The only thing that kept it from 5 starts from me is that the blade dulled after about 6 months of use and I needed to buy a new one. So this is my second purchase, but for this price I still think it's worth it.
    great heavy duty can opener it has a nice grip too, its not a flimsy one that breaks in a week , You'll like this one!!!
    I have purchased many can-opener in other market and store. This is the best one ! So easy to open a can food. And that is the lowest price in the world...
    This can opener is just Amazing! opens up all size cans and no more hurting your wrist doing it. and the best part I don't have to have a bulky can opener attached to the counter
    Best Price on the Web and a great value. I wish I had ordered more than one of these so i would always have one available.
    One of the best manual hand held can opener available on the market. The large crank is a dream to use. Word of warning though, if you get going too fast, the contents of the can may spill. Take your time and slow down.
    Was a little optimistic due to the price but we are very happy with this can opener. It opens the larger #10 cans with ease.
    Great product that is holding up well and easy to use. I would but more and I recommend it to anyone that doesn't need their wrist hurting.
    Works great on all sizes of cans, from tiny tomato paste ones to big #10 sauces. Much sturdier than anything else for the price, swings open very wide, and the crank makes it much easier to use than the traditional can opener.
    This can opener is a godsend to my tired old hands. It locks on perfectly and with the large, crank handle, cans open much easier, far easier than the turn-key type. The quality looks to be high. We will see how long it holds up. My last one took a few years to wear out. :)
    The Swing-A-Way large crank can opener is just what name implies - EASY. This can opener has no problem opening any cans including the large #10 cans.
    This Can opener is the best commercial one that I have found. Others in the past have konked out on me after only a few months of use. I've been using this one for over a year now and it still works great.
    This Swing-A-Way Large Crank Can Opener is a gem for opening large cans. We tend to purchase from the big box stores and often get those large cans. Regular size and household electric can openers do not do the trick. Found this to be very economical as well.
    This is an awesome can opener. It take the pressure off your hands so they will not cramp like the regular can opener. I recommend this to any cook.
    Works great for opening cans! Who would have guessed. It doesnt ride out of the lip like some other can openers, and the large crank is great for opening a bunch of cans, or #10 cans.
    This opener was larger than the regular household openers that you can purchase at Wal-mart and would be fine for home use, but in our restaurant, where we open a couple #10 cans per day, it only lasted a couple months. It's an inexpensive opener so we got what we paid for.
    Thank you for your review! As you noted, this economical can opener is designed for light-duty use at an attractive price point. For fast-paced, high-volume kitchens, we recommend investing in a heavier-duty Commercial Can Opener.
    Compared all the can openers I had in the past several years this is the best. It is very easy and convenient to use. At this price, you cannot go wrong.
    this is a great can opener to take long with me on my catering jobs. They open #10 cans easily as well as all others.
    For the money, this is the best can opener around. It enables the ladies at our church to easily open #10 cans, a task that was almoset impossible for them before we got this can opener.
    After struggling opening large cans with small hand held openers, we invested in this can opener. Its very easy to crank, moves smoothly around the can, and opens large cans quickly. The swing arm is very fluid and is easy to attach opener to the can.
    We got two of these can openers--one for our restaurant and one for home. After having gone through several WalMart can openers, I was excited to find something with such good reviews, and so reasonably priced. They're great!
    Perfect for #10 cans. Hasn't jammed at all. Very fluent movement. Not much else I can say except very highly recommended for all your can opening needs!
    You've got to have a good can opener in the kitchen. This one is great on large cans and small cans alike. You literally swing away with ease to open cans. Highly recommended product.
    This can opener is great and it makes opening 10# cans much easier. I didn't want the expensive of electric and have been thrilled with how easy it is. It is great for someone with arthritis also.
    Should it be so hard to find a decent can opener? Apparently so. Between gears that quit meshing, wheels that don't punch or roll out of the cut, handles that break off, knobs that spin uselessly while leaving their imprint in my hand, I have spent an insane amount of money and risked apoplexy on consumer crap. I just want to open a can of tomato sauce. Is that too much to ask for? Then, while browsing the Internet for a kitchen gadget I dearly want but cannot justify by need, I found THIS lovely can opener. I took a chance that the glowing reviewers were not employed shills of the Swing-a-Way company and ordered it. Oh the sublime joy when my little can of tomato paste was opened before I knew it! The warm satisfaction when the large can of crushed tomatoes opened just as easily! I cannot yet speak of its durability and longevity but I do hope to see it nestled in my utensil drawer for many years to come. Best money I've spent in a long time!
    good can opener, heavy duty and easy to use, does not mess the top of the can up and cleans easy. much better value that others I have seen
    This is easily the best handheld can opener we've had in our store. It's built well, and the extra long crank makes short work of tough #10 cans without fatiguing employee's hands.
    We bought two of these can openers for our restaurant since they are such a good price. They are super heavy duty. I would recommend them.
    WOW this is an amazing invention. I am only giving it 4 stars because i think it could be a little more heavy duty. i would be willing to pay a few dollars more for one that would last a little longer. we get about 300 food service cans out of one of these for the money that isnt bad.
    Thanks for your review! You should check out our can opener buying guide called "Choose The Perfect Can Opener For You!" to help you decide if you want to invest in a can opener designed for higher volume use. Can Opener Buying Guide
    This is the most awsome can opener ever! We almost bought one of the higher priced openers that mount down to a table top and boy am I glad we did'nt. This opener will zip around a can in seconds! Thanks
    Swing-A-Way Large Crank Can Opener Easy Crank is so durable, easy to use and gets the job done! No job is too big or small. For the price is a steal.
    I bought this can opener as a back up to the wall mounted opener but have never had a problem with the wall mounted one! So I use this one for camping, family get-togethers, and such. A great can opener for any size can.
    During our prison ministry, we open alot of cans to feed the participants and our large can opener broke. I bought 2 of these openers. They work exceptionally well and don't smash the can's edge. I don't think that I will repair our old can opener but order more of these if I ever need to.
    Awesome!!!!! If you have ever been stuck opening alot of # 10 cans this is perfect and worth every penny! I recommend this product to any catering chef that is always movin.
    These are great and really easy to use. Thy are nice for home kitchens and well as professional ones. They can easily open 16 oz cans all the way to a number 10 can.
    We purchased this can opener when our old one begin to rust and grind. This is perfect for opening large cans without trouble and for the price, you can't beat it!
    Great brand name can opener at a terrific price. The large crank makes opening cans very easy. This item holds up well after many uses and well constructed and easy to clean.
    We purchased this to use in our small convenience store to open large cans. We love it and are selling them as a retail item now. Have purchased dozens to resell, best can opener you will ever buy!
    This is a very nice can opener for the price. We had tried a few other can openers, but this is by far one of the better openers. It looks heavy duty enough to last a longer time.
    Love, love, love this hand held crank can opener. We replaced an older can opener with this beauty, and could not be happier. The large handle and crank action make opening the largest cans so easy.
    The swing away large crank can opener is easy to use and clean. It makes opening all size cans, big or small a breeze to open.
    great product better than electric . and even i like them more than the bulky one you attach to the perp tables. small and space saver.
    Love this can opener! I don't use a lot of canned goods at the cafe, but this works great - need to get one for home use too.
    I have been using the swing-a-way can opener for a few years now. We open a lot of large cans every day. They are cheap enough to replace regularly.
    This is by far the best handheld can opener we have ever used. The ladies are thrilled with it's ease of use. Wasted many dollars on less useful can openers.
    I was looking for an opener that would last but not be too large and cumbersome. This one did the trick! Very satisfied with the product and the fast delivery.
    Our restaurant has small kitchen so there is no room for a table mount opener... This one works great.. Got a couple extra and gave them to friends to use at home and they love them too!!!
    I open quite a few #10 cans in the course of a year, and have gone through countless hand and electric can openers.I find this hand crank to be much better then the standard hand can opener. It is much easier to turn, much easier on your hands. I always perfer the hand models to the table mounted models. My husband likes both models. The electric ones just do not stand up. You can't beat the price of the easy crank model either.
