      It is so nice to use a can opener that actually works. I have gone through 3 others from grocery and discount stores that didn't.

      Comments about Swing-A-Way® Can Opener (407WH):

      I bought this can opener for my kitchenette. I have an almost identical Swing-A-Way can opener that we have been using for OVER 20 years! These things are made to last. After paying a simular price at a big box store for a generic can opener- only to have it literally fall apart in 5 months- There is no other way to go but Swing-A-Way.

            I have had my hand-held Swing-A-Way for almost 29 years and it has NEVER failed me. From time to time I run it through the dishwasher and if need be, spray a little WD-40 on the mechanism. It's just the best-ever can opener at a reasonable price, I couldn't be without it. It also makes a nice gift(and I get thanks even years later as the new owner comes to appreciate how reliable, durable, and easy-to-use this can opener is).

              The Swing-A-Way is reliable and durable; the best I've used. I left one at my friend's camp as a gift to replace the cheap one she had there. Of all the gifts I've given for using the camp this is the one she still talks about!

              I have never had a can opener that worked as well as this one.. I bought it in 1996 because it had a warranty, I think it ran out about 10 years ago ;-)
              I can only hope they are still made the same..

                My first can opening was a Swing-a-Way given to me by a friend in a wedding gift in 1970. It lasted over twenty years as my only can opener. When I had to replace it, I got another one. After several more years, I couldn't find a Swing-a-Way anywhere in the stores. I tried every other brand, including the expensive ones, and none of them lasted more than a few months. I went through five can openers in three months, and I finally found a Swing-a-Way online at Ace Hardware - THANK YOU!!! I NEVER use electric can openers - I don't like them. Please don't EVER stop making the
                Swing-a-Way can opener!!! I use it every day!

                  I've had one of these since I got married 35 years ago. 3 years ago I moved cross country and got rid of anything old and ugly from my kitchen. On arrival at my new house I bought an Oxo can opener to replace it. After only 3 years I can't turn the wheel on the Oxo and had to throw it out. I'm now using the small SwingAway that I had in my camping gear. Will never try anything else again.

                      Simply the best can-opener I've ever owned. I've had more expensive ones that were difficult to use & didn't work nearly as well. This one opens cans easily and lasts for many years with proper, simple care. Don't wash it in soapy water. Rinse the cutting wheel area to remove any food bits, and give it a quick wipe with a towel. Simple, affordable & uses no electricity!

                          I had a drawer full of different can openers ten years ago. Electric, cordless, manual. After I found this gem and started loving it the others all went to the yardsale. I did keep my cordless one, just because the kids thought it was fun to use but I only use this one. For all the same reasons everyone else has posted this thing is great and will last way past me. Guess what, now my kids like using it more than the cordless when they want to help dad in the kitchen. Guess they will be fighting over who gets dads favorite can openere when I am gone!

                            no other can opener can out do this champion! I was needing a can opener a few years ago, but could only find funky ones at the stores, so i looked at a second hand store and found my old friend, yes a Swing-Away! i cannot express how happy I was to find one!
                            It was quite used then and now it is time for a new one.. I looked on the internet and WOW! Found some new ones for sale God Bless America!! every home should have at least one of these can openers, I am getting me two of them, and one for each of my kids, get yours today, you will not be disappointed

                                There may be a problem using it to open a canned beer, but to open every can made for a can opener, the Swing-A-Way is without peer.

                                  It's the best hand can opener ..period. I bought three other kinds because I couldn't find the Swing-Away and they didn't last no time and were a piece of junk with China stamped on them. I had an old Swing-Away in my camp stuff, dragged it out and it has served me well for over 20 years. I wouldn't buy anything but a Swing-Away but probably won't have to now that I have one in the Kitchen and one in the camp gear.

                                    I was turned on to the Swing-Away as a young adult by my older sister. Knowing her demand of quality I went out and bought one. I still own it, 22 years later and it is as dependable as ever. You will never need to own another. Form follows function, and this utensil is a work of art!

                                            This is the only can opener I will ever buy. I bought a Good Chef item and it was terrible. This can opener, although not as sexy as OXO or Kitchen Aid, is just as reliable, works well, and is inexpensive.

                                              I live in Puerto Rico and my daughter who was living in Chicago sent me one as a gift (she was already using it herself). I liked it from the very beginning. She would always send me one every year as a gift, but still the ones I had at home were working perfectly. Once I had to ask her to stop sending them because I had too many and they were all working as new. It is a very good product and I recommend it without hesitation.

                                                Have used the Swing-a-way canopener since I was 1st married. Now at age 80 I'm still using my old hand held model and it works great. My hand strength isn't what it used to be, but I find this opener is still easy to use. And as to cleaning, just throw it in the dishwasher. Great product and so glad it's still American made.

                                                  This can opener is so easy to use. It opens cans completely and it works everytime. It is not hit and miss. I like the fact that it is made in the U.S.A. I've raved about it so much my sister wants one. I've had many electric can openers and although they are fine, I much prefer this one. It doesn't take up any counter space and is easy to keep clean.

                                                  Comments about Swing-A-Way® Can Opener (407WH):

                                                  I have used can openers costing much more that didn't work as well. I've had my share of electric can openers, but prefer this simple, basic, fool proof design. Everyone has had a can that was too tall for their electric can opener and fumbled trying to open it. What about power failures? This great little can opener does not take up your counter space and works on all sizes of cans. It's smooth operation removes the can lid completely with minimal effort and leaves no jagged edges. You will not find a better hand operated can opener at any price! Did I mention that it's made in the USA and was selected by NASA for the Skylab Space Station?
                                                  No, I don't work for Swing-A-Way and unfortunately, I'm not getting paid to write this. I'm writing this because I believe in this great American made product. You can't go wrong with Swing-A-Way.
