Rated 2 out of 5Â by Seer Replaced my old opener with this
Though they were similar models the new one is light weight and flimsy. Rickety design and wobbles all over when in use. I could only give two stars one for the always courteous and efficient service your company consistently delivers and for the magnet that catches the lid. The rest well I can only hope I do not have to open many cans. I will probably remove from the wall but don't want to leave the screw holes. The older model saw over 25 years of reliable service.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by T.C. Best can opener in the world
I got so sick of non-ergonomic hand held can openers getting dull and just being hard to use. I was forever asking my husband to finish opening cans for me when the can opener got dull, or I was only halfway through the can and my hand got tired. I asked my friends if any of them had recommendations for can openers that were easy to use and didn't get dull. One of my friends recommended this wall-mount can opener from The Country Store. I always liked products from The Country Store, and have been to their stores in Vermont, so I checked it out online. When my husband saw the can opener, he said he had one like it in his house when he was a kid and it was great. You can't find can openers like this in our area stores, so I had never seen one like this before. It is really ease to use and makes opening cans painless. It's great to be able to open a can without twisting your hands. We are thrilled with it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Glendanva My favorite can opener
I use to have one like this at my old house and when we moved it was left behind. I didn't realize how hard it was to find a good can opener, no matter if it were wall hand or electric. nothing seemed to work. I am so glad I found this one and it works great.

This can opener seems to be well made. Now that I have 'matured' my hands don't work well enough to use the can openers that are hand held. This one does an excellent job of opening the cans and hanging onto the lids. I am so glad to have found this.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Civil War Lady A must have for any kitchen!
This has got to be by far not only the most handy can opener ever, but brings back alot of memories of my grandparents farm. This little contraption has one major thing going for it and that is ease of use. When the kids were little, they would alway want to help prepare meals with me (our youngest is now 12). The problem with a traditional can opener is that you have to turn the handle on it and hold the can opener shut in order to get the can open. This one is much more efficient and easy to use. Once the can is secured, you simply crank the handle and the can opens. No extra work required such as holding the handle to make sure the can opens! Not only that, it brought back memories of when I used it on my grandparents farm helping grandma in the kitchen back in the 70's. A great product then and now!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by gran z Best can opener on the market
My mom had one of these and 20 Christmas' ago, I asked for one. My daughter found one at an old "country" store close to home. It was their last one. Mine had gotten worn out so this Christmas, I bought one for myself and one for each of my three daughters. We all love them. Don't quit making them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gayle Love my Swing-A-Way
Whenever I use my Swing-A-Way can opener, it brings back memories of my Mother's kitchen when I was young. This is the kind she always had before electric openers were invented. I never have to worry about a power outage and it takes little effort to use. I can hang it on the wall and it doesn't take up space on my countertop. My grandkids find it fascinating that I still have such an old-fashioned method of opening a can.

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Wall-Mount Can Opener …
"Your hand can opener is even better than my electric one!" - Madge Burke, Greenfield, MA
"We purchased one of these about 10 years ago and have finally worn it out. We've used it thousands of times. Great value." - Karen Smith, Filer, ID
"I've tried several can openers over the years, but this wall mount is the best yet. It opens cans easier than an electric, and I don't have to fight to get it started like an electric one. It is also easier for me to use because I have arthritis in my hands and not as much strength in them as before." - Pamela Moore, Guntersville, AL
"I have used every kind of can opener there is, and not a one holds up to this version. I need to buy one now. I will never try another kind again. I was without a can opener over Thanksgiving. Cannot find one of these can openers anywhere around our part of the county. Thank you, Vermont Country Store." - Drema Cooper, Hinton, WV
