You can't go wrong with this they are reliable, and could out last you.Looking for recommendations for as sturdy and easy to use can opener for home use. I tried looking at reviews on Amazon and even the best reviewed seem to have detractors. Hoping for some actual user experiences and reviews. Thanks
I will second this one. We bought this after a lot of reading reviews and it has been great.Best manual can opener ever. You have to prepare for any hand/finger injuries during a disaster, right?
Plus, you can put the can lid back on, as it cuts from the side instead of the top. Maybe you want to hide something in a can. This would work in a pinch. The lid does stay on pretty well for leftovers to go in the fridge. I've stored leftovers this way with no problems.)

According to the reviews they are NO LONGER what your mother had. Pretty crappy now.Right here... My mother has had one for three decades.....
If you DON'T put them in a dishwasher, they last for ever.
That would easily explain why the two newer model Swing Away's I've bought are lower quality. But it doesn't explain why the decades old models I have don't work as well on the cans made in the last decade. That part is on the cans themselves.According to the reviews they are NO LONGER what your mother had. Pretty crappy now.
I found a reference that said the company was sold to China in 2008. You will notice they no longer stamp "Made in USA" on the handle.
