Last year, my swing-a-way (purchased in 1995) eventually died and needed to be replaced after nearly 20 years of faithful service. I went to the local store and picked up a Kitchenaid, since they didn't carry Swing-a-way. The unit failed to align and cut properly within a couple of months. I returned to a different retailer, bought an OXO (seems nobody carries the swing-a-way here), and it failed within a couple of months again.
Turning to Amazon, I bought the Swing-A-Way, believing that everyone else had cheapened their can openers to an unacceptable level. Unfortunately, this Swing-Away isn't like the original I purchased. I don't know what they've done, but it doesn't grip the can the same way, it doesn't turn as easily, and it doesn't cut cleanly like the original.
The final chapter in my story is the purchase of a can opener called EZ-DUZ-IT manufactured by a company called John J. Steuby in Missouri. This one FINALLY met with my expectations. I'm not sure how or why it works better. It just does. It holds tight to the can, turns easily, and cuts cleanly. I have no idea whether it will last 20 years like my old Swing-A-Way, but after a lot of effort, it's the closest thing. I was also surprised and pleased to find out that it's made in the USA and didn't cost any more than the awful openers I had purchased from Kitchenaid, OXO, and Swing-A-Way.
Turns out this is made in China (what isn't these days!) but it is a much better design. Certainly designed by Swing-a-Way just manufactured overseas.
The handle is slightly longer, which creates more torque for grabbing a can. The crank handle is lightly longer, again allowing more torque to turn it. And unlike the original, this new version has an extra, huge, gear wheel the provides absolutely solid drive power to the toothed wheel that rotates the can. And the cutting wheel is slightly larger now too, and the packaging says it is made from a hardened steel. Lastly, the handles have more cushioning material on them.
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.
I didn't expect hover cars or even personal robots that open all my cans for me, but I naively thought that by the year 2000 we'd have can openers that, you know, worked well. By all accounts prior to this Swing-a-Way, I was wrong. All my prior can openers worked okay for a few months, but then they died.
Finally, FINALLY, I found a can opener that isn't awful: this one. It opens cans easily and seems better made than all the ones I had before (and it wasn't like I was buying super cheap ones). If this one stops working, I'll update my review. If you don't see an update, then take solace in knowing that finally, there is a can opener that isn't awful.
This can opener doesn't open cans automatically, but it works and it has kept working. So, I recommend it to others.
