Meanwhile, the can opener itself has some sharp edges. I'm not talking about the cutting roller, which is sharp, of course. I mean the edges of the metal frame where it was punched out. See the photos for one of the places I'm talking about, but there are others. There are burrs there that I suspect might even be able to cut your finger. Not good! Whether they would cut you or not, this just screams "sloppy manufacturing."
Also, the card that served as its packaging, the one it comes zip-tied to, had oil or grease stains on it when it arrived. (Also labeled in the picture.) Ewww...
When it comes down to it, it does a decent job of opening cans. but I was not impressed overall. I'm sure you can find better.
We've had this newly purchased can opener a little over 2 months and already the plastic handle covers are loose. It takes a great deal of wiggling and strength to get the opener to do its initial "pop" to start opening the can. After that, it opens "OK", but doesn't have that stable feeling of our former opener.
We're still on the ridiculous hunt for this basic kitchen tool. It makes me sick to think of the waste of throwing these things away just because of the profit margin increase for poor and cheap craftsmanship . I will remember Swing-A-Way as a brand who sold their loyal customers a substandard product without the respect of changing the name or description. Bait and Switch = Customer Depreciation.
Now I know. I've gone through two of these in as many years. After a while, they just stop gripping the can. It's really not that uncomfortable to use (I'll never understand the huge can openers with giant soft grips)....it just doesn't last that long.
Next up, I'm buying a more premium opener (the Zyliss): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000HK03HI/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B000HK03HI&linkCode=as2&tag=todmedblo-20&linkId=JUMGN5VRFNEDPY5J
Only time will tell if others last longer...but for now, at the very least, I'm disappointed with the durability of this one.
- easy to use
- not "plush" but no issues w/ ergonomics
- only lasts 6 months to a year
I hope you found this helpful - feel free to ask questions!
Overall, I think it was a good buy for the money. I'm putting 3 stars though because the handle did fall off basically immediately. But, overall, the can opener still functions fine and works and the price is reasonable.
