I would rate this aluminum can crusher 4 out of 5 stars out of the box and only following the supplied instructions. BUT here is how to make it a 5 out of 5 product and arguably the best crusher for functionality, value, and price.

What I did right from the start:

1. Use bolts. washers, and nuts to secure it to a solid surface. I drilled neat and appropriate holes in the side of my cupboard and fastened the crusher over my sink. Using the supplied screws will likely result in them pulling loose from the surface. A great deal of pressure and force (although easy to pull) is used to crush the can to abt 1". With bolts and nuts the Crusher stays secure and shouldn't rip away from the wall. Also, the small amount of liquid from the cans drips right into the sink.

2. Alter the bottom lip of the Crusher so cans will not shoot out the front side while crushing them. They can become quite the missle as they shoot across the room. This alteration is accomplished in one or two ways. Use pliers to bend the bottom lip up abt 3/8 to 1/2". The cans will then stay firm in the Crusher unit as they are compacted. OR you can drop a large head screw or bolt in the hole (already in the product) in the bottom of the lip. This will assist in keeping the can from slipping out. The first method seems to function the best in my experience.

3. Lubricate the inner/outer moving parts with Crisco type shortening or paste. I use this since it is near my sink and dishes. If your Crusher is not near food or cooking items then any oil lubricant or grease would work.

I mounted my Crusher to function with left-hand (I'm right-handed but because of medical reasons my left is much stronger)operation.

I bought this to replace another can crusher only to find it has a similar problem with the handle pivot. This model can be fixed easier than the other I was using. I really liked this one and think it will work for a long time given some modifications.

I've had one of these crushers for nearly 8 years now, and it has crushed thousands of cans, yet it is as good as new. It also crushes the cans completely flat (which most others don't do) which saves a lot of space when storing and collecting crushed cans. It's definately worth the price.

I bought this device about a year ago because our recycling bin sometimes was overflowing on trash day. I've mounted it on the deck outside and occasionally give it a spritz of oil. It's fun to use and smashes cans to wafer dimensions. Occasionally cans pop out, but making a thumb size indentation in the can first greatly reduces the pop outs. It looks, feels, and is heavy and substantial.

It's construction is heavy duty. I've had it for a few months now and it's still working perfectly with very little wear. Definitely better than other crushers I've seen. They've all worn out rather quickly. One thing to note, if you're limited on where to put it and can't get it in a stud(as happened to me), first mount a board to the wall and then mount this onto the board. Otherwise you end up pulling the screws out of the wall.

Quality Metal Should withstand the test of time. Compacted 6 cans into the size of 1. (6X the space savings) That saves me bags and storage space. Less trips to the recycling center.

What a difference from the other can crusher offered everywhere else (including this site) which was difficult to use and broke after 6 months... This one is SOLID, and works VERY well. Easy to use, very heavy steel construction throughout. No flimsy mechanism, heavy gauge steel construction and very durable looking finish. I am very impressed with "the Crusher" even though I just got it today! Maybe my opinion will change with more use, but I have a very good feeling about this item. If you have a need for a can crusher this is by far the better alternative to the others that are out there. Buy it.
