Manual Can Opener

Recommended Posts

We're talking kitchen use at home.

Many will swear by the military issue or surplus P38. Me too...... backpacking or camping.

 

Mine finally gave it up. Go online and get another. Right......

An incredible array of names and quality.

I finally settled on an Ez-Duz-It. It's the original Swing Away renamed and made in the same factory. The original Swing Away name was sold and the quality suffered.

So far so good. I'm hoping for some longevity.

Lots of stuff out there and they all seem to be fair to poor.

 

Just saying.....

We picked up the Ez-Duz-It Deluxe exactly 3 years ago.  The one complaint I had out of the box was that the handle padding constantly needs to be pressed back on.  Other than that is has been good until recently.  It has started skipping sections of the can lid on about 3 in 5 cans.  Good luck with yours, I had super high hopes but will probably look elsewhere for the next one.

Thanks philpom. -gonna keep my eye out for an upgraded opener.  I figure the Ez-Duz-It will do until then.

I have one of those with the big crank handle.  It works great.  Made in the USA.  

 

THIS IS THE ONE I have and love it.

We have one of those that cut into the sealing band from the side, leaving a smooth, safe  edge. Once we got it, we never looked back. Best investment ever--open a can of beans, or a can of dog food, whatever,  take out what you need, put the lid back in place and wrap a rubber band over the can vertically. Put the can in the fridge--it's near-as-nevermind sealed as well as it was before the can was opened. 

 

And if you're particularly thrifty, you can use the can again...once you wash out all that fruit cocktail, that is. :-D

I'd buy one of those if I could find one with a crank handle like the one I have.  I also rarely ever open a can of something that I don't use completely.
