Wall-Mount Can Opener
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!

sturdy built and easy to use
This is much easier to keep clean and easier for my old fingers to use and still a sturdy well built can opener.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Best Can Opener Ever!!
We had one of these can openers when I was growing up and I loved it. When mom moved she must have left it hanging on the door frame. I have searched and searched for one like it and none stood up to the abuse of doing its job! I saw this opener on your website a long time ago but never bought one. After buying 3 junk ones I decided I was tired of it not working and my hands hurting from cranking a junk one(I have fibromyalgia). I ordered this one and I was sooooo excited when it came. First thing I did was got it out of the box and up on the back door frame, just like when I was a kid. Although I had a hard time screwing in the screws and my husband finishing it up, I made sure I opened a can that night for supper!! I know it will last a life time, I am sure the one we had when I was young is still going!! Happy to have it!!
