Product Description

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. It strains liquids through a new deeper removable lid and features a soft grip handle for releasing liquid with a squeeze. 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. This grease separator is dishwasher safe on the top rack.

I still love the product...works great.
N. Flowers
Works better at separating the fat from gravy than the 'spout' type.

Hope customer service reads this review.

When I opened the box I found the red ring of plastic that is part of the sleeve the stopper slides in and out of floating around on the bottom of the container. I placed it back in the center where it belonged and then tried water in it and it leaked.

Upon examination of the bottom of the red ring I found it is held in place by a very thin piece of glue. Even if it were glued properly, it's so flimsy that one or two slides of the stopper would break it away from the bottom and it would leak.

Don't waste your money on this. Good idea, bad execution.

Add me to the many, many people who reported that this product broke immediately. I am so disappointed, first because this product was highly recommended by Cooks Illustrated and second because I grew up using Swingaway products and always thought of them as being of good quality.

Update two weeks later: I informed the seller of my damaged item, and they immediately sent me another one. This one seems to be working. I would encourage the manufacturer to come up with a more sturdy design. I've changed my initial rating from 1 to three stars because of this gracious response.

Update almost two years later: The replacement is working very well. It can handle boiling stock and top-of-the-rack dishwasher cleaning. I'm changing my review to 5 stars. Excellent value for the price.

I've used this without any problems at least 15 times so far, and it does a fantastic job of separating the fat so you can retain all the flavorful juices. You can visually see the line of separation, so it's easy to see what you want to keep. To pout it out, you just pull the trigger on the handle and the juices pour out the bottom into your pot. When you get to the line of separation, you just release the trigger and you're done. At that point, I either use the juice as is, or I thicken it and make a tasty gravy from it. I probably would have wasted those juices otherwise, so I love this thing!

In theory - it's the perfect utility for separating the grease from the drippings. Very simple and elegant. The problem is the quality is VERY POOR.
Ordered one on Amazon. Loved it until the plastic ring on the bottom broke in the second or third use.
Ordered another and loved it until the ring on the bottom broke on second use.

Would be great if they learned how to make it so it lasts

I bought one of these about a year 1/2 ago and was about to order another one for a present when I saw these reviews. Mind has lasted well, and I really really like it. I use the removable red top with holds to strain big stuff and put it aside if I want to add it to the gravy later. The squeeze handle releases the broth and I release it to leave the fat in the cup. I haven't put this in the dishwasher, but have washed it plenty of times. It's GREAT.

I had the same problem as N. Texas. Ring fell off the first time I used it, Tried to glue it back but couldn't get it to seal. I should have gotten the simple, basic, one piece spout like I had before.

Bought this for making gravy at Thanksgiving based on a recommendation from the salesperson at Sur la Table. Poured the turkey juices into the carafe and it leaked all over my counter. While pouring the remaining juice into another container, I noticed that the red ring on the inside had come unattached.

I bought this item through Chef's Catalog a few months back. The idea is great to drain from the bottom to avoid loss, but the materials and design were so substandard that it broke the second time I used it. DO NOT BUY THIS!
