    I am 60 and have used the swing-a-way since I was a kid. My Mother had one as far back as I can remember. I finally found a place to buy them a few years ago and purchased two so I would be assured of not being without them again. They are simple, reliable, and do an excellent job of cutting all sorts of cans. The magnet works very well if kept clean. To keep my swing-a-way clean I just take it off the mounting bracket and place it in the dishwasher. Taking it out of the dishwasher before the heat cycle should help preserve the nice paint job. They can be placed almost any where on your cabinets and can be used in camping situations so you always have a reliable opener with you to do a fast smooth job of opening cans. If you use the opener correctly you should have no trouble what so ever. This is an A-1 product.

    I purchased this item in Feb. 2010...and find that this swing-away doesn't come close to the quality that even my 10 year old swing-away has...good thing I saved my old one as a back up! Leaves jagged edges..does not cut smoothly.
    Very disappointed.

          Comments about Swing-A-Way® Wall Can Opener (609WH):

          We started believing that they no longer made a can opener that worked and lasted. In desperation we found a blog by a person who was begging for people to suggest quality can openers, and that's where we found out about the Swing-A-Way brand. We picked it up at our local Ace Hardware and couldn't believe it was so well priced. This opener is heavy duty and opens a can much quicker than previous openers we've owned. We like how the magnet holds the lid making it handy to grab and toss. We've only had it a couple of weeks so can't attest to how long it will last, but it looks like it will be with us for a long time. We'll update this review if we discover any problems.

            These can openers work great and last for years. They are getting harder to find.

            I ordered it on-line and had it sent to the store. I found it was a dollar less on the store shelf.

              We've been looking all over for this very tool for years. A wall-mounted swing-away opener has been in our kitchen for 40 years. We were looking to get a new one and simply could not find it in the stores; they're all going to fancy, hand held or electric models. Great luck to find this on line at Ace.

                Can opener mounts on the wall and with two cranks will open any size can. Perfect for arthritis sufferers. Easy to come apart and clean and no electricity required. PERFECT.

                          I had one and left it behind when I moved. Every time I open a can I miss it, so I'm ordering another one. I used the old one for many years. I now have arthritis in my hands. It was so easy for me to open cans. I have trouble with the hand crank and never had an electric that did a decent job. There is nothing better than the swing away!

                            I got so tired of electric can openers breaking every year or so and I have a difficult time using a regular manual can opener due to wrist problems. This can opener has been great, it's easy to use and clean, it stays out of the way until you need it and it just works all the time. Sometimes simpler is better.

                              As a child, we had this kind of opener. When I found one, I tried it. It is the best can opener I have ever bought. Although it is manual, it opens better and faster than any other can opener I have ever bought whether electric or manual. My daughters are now grown, but were amazed at how well it opened. I haven't found anything that I don't like about it.
