The name Swing-A-Way, simply put, is an American classic. The original Swing-A-Way, introduced in 1938, was a wall-mounted can opener with a bracket that allowed the strong sturdy unit to swing back against the wall of a butler's pantry when not in use, hence the name. In 1945, the company pioneered a gear-driven cutting wheel that revolutionized can opening. In the 1950's the company launched the first heavy-duty, handheld can opener, the legendary Model 407 that incorporated the best features of the wall model. The rest is history. This Amco Swingaway grease separator has a spring loaded bottom opening that allows for easy release of grease-free liquids.

Its large 4-cup, 32-ounce capacity works for any type of cooking preparation. Included on the-cup are metric and standard measurements in 1/4, 1/3-cup and 2-ounce increments.
