Style Name: Jar Opener
I cannot believe this product isn't in every store! It has been very hard to find, I have even travelled to other towns to try to find it to give friends who have WEAK HANDS OR ARTHRITIS! It will open any size from a small bottle top to a large pickle jar without effort! I would be lost without mine! Last summer, I found a supply in a small town in Indiana (at $4.95 each). I bought 1/2 dozen, gave them all out and need more, so had to come online! Buying 6 more now.

Style Name: Jar Opener Verified Purchase
I have owned many jar openers in my life and this is the one I would recommend for most people. The jar opener that is the easiest and most convenient to use is the one that is shaped like a V with serrated inner edges that you mount on the under side of your upper kitchen cabinets. It is convenient because you don't have to open a drawer for it and since it is mounted to the cabinet, you can use both hands to grip the jar. BUT, many people don't want to mar their kitchen cabinets by mounting that kind of opener. So, my current favorite is the Swing-A-Way #711 jar opener. Made by the folks who make high-quality hand can openers, this is a very simple to use device which doesn't take up much drawer space. It opens jars of all sizes easily.

Style Name: Jar Opener Verified Purchase
I haven't found a jar yet that I can't get open with this thing. I've had one for years and I just bought two for my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. I started needing one when I had some arthritis pain in my hand and couldn't grip the tops of jars firmly enough to open them. This only requires you to squeeze the handle to get a good grip on any size jar.

The only downside is that sometimes there are dents left in the jar lid after opening it this way.

I have had this opener for 26 years. Yes, 26 years! Got it as a wedding gift back in 1980 and I'm still using it. I love it and use it almost every day. It has never failed me and even kids can use this one. I'm ordering 2 more for my daughters for Christmas for their own apartments. Great kitchen tool, everyone should have one!

Style Name: Jar Opener Verified Purchase
I first bought this product in 1984 after the birth of my daughter. My hand was hurting from opening baby food jars. I picked this up at a local store and had it for years. 20+ years later, the same daughter moved out of the house. I gave my original one with the red plastic/rubber handle, that slides over the metal, to protect your hand, to her so that she would have it.

My husband purchased a plastic battery operated jar opener which recently broke, due to my abuse of the unit. I was disappointed, because I lack strength in my hands. As I visited my daughter a week ago, I saw and used the old red handled Amco Swing-A-Way Jar Opener, see link below:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HMC5JA/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00

and in using it, I realized how much I missed having one. While at her house, so I'd not forget, I came to Amazon (less expensive than ebay in my opinion), and purchased one from Ace Hardware to have shipped to my house.

I received it a few days ago and have already used it and am happy to have my old friend back. It looks to be identical to my old one and I'm very pleased to be independent enough to open a jar for myself again.

I highly recommend this, because it expands to a huge jar, even down to the smallest. With the handle positioned as it is, it gives you the proper leverage to open your jar without straining your hands or wrists. I am so pleased that these are still produced. Needless to say, I will NOT give this one away. My daughter prefers the color black, so maybe I will take her up on her offer of "I'll trade my new one for the old one." ;)

Thanks for reading and I hope that this has helped someone determine whether or not this is an item that may be of use to you.

Style Name: Jar Opener Verified Purchase
Amco Swing-A-Way 711BK Comfort Grip Jar Opener, Black I bought this opener in New York more than 30 years ago ,while on a business trip from my home country of Trinidad and Tobago. My wife who has rather weak hands praises the elegance and effectiveness of its design every time she uses it. It has received constant use since then and although now covered with rust it has never failed us. I've been looking for it since we emigrated to the US 14 years ago and I am happy that I finally tracked it down. I recommend it so highly, that I have bought one for each of my female relatives.

Style Name: Can Opener
The same people who used to make the swing a way's (in USA) are making a can opener called Ez-Duz-It that is exactly like the swing a ways but they are made in USA and the better quality that we were accustomed to with the old swing a ways. They are being sold at Fantes.com currently for 6.99. I received mine and indeed it is exactly like my old swing a way except it doesn't have the bottle opener on the side, I can live with that.

Style Name: Can Opener Verified Purchase
I went to the site list of made in America companies
on the net - I searched for several hours before I
found a site that had a can opener -- found one and
ordered - this took me to Amazon, which made me even
more comfortable as I have ordered from them many
times before.

The can opener arrived about a week later and was
exactly the one I had ordered - except it said it
was made in China -- extremely disappointed in the
misrepresentation of the made in America site --
the can opener is fine, but I want products made
in America!
