Supposedly Swing Away was bought out and is cheap crap from China now. The old USA factory makes the good ones under the name ez duz it. I just bought one a few weeks ago and it has opened 3 cans so far. I'll report back in 10 years and let you all know. Make sure to get the black handle one.

Amazon link for anyone interested:

After looking at the Amazon page, there are counterfeit ones being sold. So make sure you buy directly with as the seller. I remember reading the comments and being careful when buying mine so hopefully I got a good one.

u/mattgif · 45 pointsr/BuyItForLife

They're now called "EZ Duz It." I have one, and it's phenomenal.

Admittedly, the name inspires little confidence, but I'm pretty sure I could bludgeon a bison to death with it, and then smoothly open a can o' beans to go with my 900lbs of fresh meat. So, I'm willing to give the toothless illiterate who named it a pass.

u/tlibasci · 43 pointsr/LifeProTips

Not anymore. They sold the brand and they're being made in China now, and they're shit - crap out of the package, and got even duller very quickly. The EZ-DUZ-IT is, IIRC, made in the old Swing-a-way factory in the US, and it's the bomb. Number one can opener on Amazon right now. Trust me.

u/Twisky · 30 pointsr/BuyItForLife

There are several dozen threads on this if you use the search bar.

Most people recommend the EZ-DUZ-IT which just looks like a standard can opener to me.

u/jazzguitarboy · 29 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Swing-A-Way can openers used to be good, but their production got outsourced. Buy EZ-DUZ-IT instead, made on the original production line.

u/mmr364 · 22 pointsr/BuyItForLife

EZ-DUZ-IT - look no further

u/jfzastrow · 21 pointsr/BuyItForLife

EZ-DUZ-IT. I'm not kidding.

u/TheSinisterSquid · 16 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I give kind of strange gifts but this year I'm giving my family can openers in their stockings. They're cheap and made in the USA, and last a long time.

u/shillyshally · 10 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/Barnacle-bill · 8 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This gets asked a lot and the general consensus is usually these

EZ-DUZ-IT manual opener

And FWIW I’ve used a few different versions of the OXO openers and they kinda suck.

u/inferno714 · 8 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/slowdayhere · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

If you buy from Amazon, I highly recommend paying the extra few cents (4 cents right now) and make sure you buy one where the seller is (not just fulfilled by to reduce the chance of getting a counterfeit.

For instance, two "just launched" Amazon sellers are offering the can opener at the cheapest price of $8.87. Your "made in usa" can opener will be shipped from Brazil and Canada. You can see in the product reviews going back three years that counterfeits are a big problem with this product.

u/Dsiee · 6 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Here it is on Amazon for the lazy, still under $10.

u/Stupoopy · 5 pointsr/Cooking

Get the new one. The vintage stuff is cool, but make your own vintage stuff.

The point of getting vintage stuff now is that a lot of it is considered high quality. In this case, you have access to the same quality new. The bonus is that you support American folks making your high quality materials. The resale market adds little to the people pressing these things out.

EZ DUZ IT has multiple colors too.





Edit: The black EZ DUZ IT will not help you acheive laser fusion. Thanks /u/PsykoDemun

u/wiscondinavian · 5 pointsr/personalfinance

I'm going assume that you are in a moving out of your parents' house-type situation, so you have clothes, a personal computer, and personal toiletries (shampoo, razor, toothpaste, etc.) already

Bedroom: (Total: $195)

  • Mattress ($100): I can sleep on anything, so I'd start cheap, but this would be the first thing I'd replace
  • Sheets ($10)
  • Heated mattress pad ($30): Instead of investing in a lot of cheap blankets, a heated mattress pad will get you through the coldest of nights
  • Blankets ($30): 1 wool blanket from Goodwill, 1 fleece blanket from Walmart
  • Pillow ($15)
  • Lamp ($10): Maybe this is just me, but I love reading before bed, so lamps are useful!

    Living room: (Total $640)

  • Couch/Futon ($400): my sister got an AWESOME, over-sized couch for $500 8 years ago from a discount place, and the thing looks good as new. Getting a great deal on a couch can take a couple of months, but I think it's totally worth it. Okay, maybe you don't have time to wait and you need someone to hold visitors for a while. I'd get something like this
  • Coffee table ($20): Walmart, Goodwill, Craigslist, etc
  • TV ($200) + TV stand ($20): I'd hold off on buying a TV if you have a computer/large smartphone. Maybe you can't hold off, so you get a cheapo 32" TV If this thing lasts you 5 years I'd count you as lucky. Get a TV stand used.

    Bathroom: (Total:$67)

  • Toilet plunger + brush ($10): First thing you should buy for your apartment
  • Toilet paper ($10)
  • Shower curtain + Liner: ($15)
  • 2 towels ($20)
  • liquid hand soap ($2)
  • Rug ($10): Honestly I hate those terryloop/shag rugs that they sell for use in the bathroom and I use a cheapo weaved rug. I can't seem to find these on Walmart however, but they're like $5 in my country's Walmart equivolent

    Kitchen: (Total: $430 + $200 reserved for future + $200 in food = $830)

  • Most places in the US include a fridge and oven. Microwave is iffy, so I'll say you have to buy that (although, you could definitely hold off on a microwave/water kettle, I just find them so convenient)
  • Microwave ($50)
  • Electric water kettle ($15)
  • 1 large pot, 1 sauce pan, 1 large frying pan, 1 small frying pan, 4 plates... fuck it. Everything for $60. Take $200 and gradually replace key pieces at Goodwill/Garage sales/etc. over time
  • Can opener ($9): Yes, there's a canopener in the set, but honestly, a bad canopener is more frustrating for me than a bad knife.
  • Microwave-safe sealed containers ($16)
  • Pyrex/Corning-like baking dishes ($30): can usually be found for cheap at Goodwill
  • Baking pans ($25)
  • Mixing bowl set with lids ($15)
  • Dish drying rack ($10)
  • Sponge and soap ($5)
  • Dish towels ($15): get something absorbent here
  • Oven mitt/pot holders ($15)
  • Hot pads ($5)
  • Wine key ($10): You might not have wine glasses, but you have mugs! Keep it classy. This is also a beer bottle opener. I bought a cheap $15 set of wine glasses a couple of years ago and they're still going strong. If you like wine/having friends over, a set of cheap wine glasses would be good to have, but I'm not going to include them in this list.
  • Food basics ($200): Spices, oil, cocoa, flour, rice, pasta, etc.

    Cleaning supplies: ($103)

  • Really depends on the place, but lets say you don't have carpet.
  • Broom and dust pan ($10)
  • Mop and bucket ($20)
  • Gallon of bleach ($4)
  • air freshener ($2)
  • 3 garbage pails (Kitchen, bedroom, bathroom) ($15)
  • Rubber gloves ($5)
  • Laundry detergent ($10)
  • Glass/window cleaner ($2)
  • toilet bowl cleaner ($5)
  • multi-purpose cleaner ($5)
  • microfiber washclothes ($10)
  • Paper towels ($5)

    Total: $1835

    Leaving you with $165 for your first week's of food!
u/John_Luck_Pickard · 4 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Swing Aways are made in China now, and aren't as good anymore. By the American version,

Mine works great.

u/Zombies_Are_Dead · 4 pointsr/specializedtools

Holy crap, thanks for the heads up! I went and grabbed mine and compared and the one I posted looks like crap. This one looks identical other than the handle color. I'll keep this in mind.

u/CaptainCoral · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You should add this can opener to your list!
/u/ladyllana gifted this to me and embarrassingly it's totally improved my life! I've always bought dollar tree can openers, and I've never had a nice one. It's crazy how much better your life will be with a nice one! ❤️

u/Dreizu · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I bought this one, EZ-DUZ-IT 3028 Deluxe Can Opener with Grips, and it works great.

u/rogerclee · 3 pointsr/AskCulinary

I would recommend the EZ-DUZ-IT without reservation for a new can opener, manual or otherwise:

The blade is sharp and grips the can easily, and it turns like butter due to the huge amount of torque you can generate with the oversized handle.

u/trihobbs · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Actually you don't want to buy the current Swing-A-Way as it is pretty cheaply made. Ez-Duz-It is the can opener you want, made in America, and supposedly its made by the same people who produced the origianal Swing-A-Way

u/Tier_1_Masturbator · 3 pointsr/AskReddit

...It's a $5 expense. It's not like you're buying a new car. Go ahead and roll the dice.

Edit: found one on Amazon for $9, 4.8/5 rating with 880 reviews.

u/phish_phood · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife
u/sitesjc · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

EZ DUZ IT - well made and will last you forever. Here's an amazon link.

u/subarutim · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I bought this one last year. It's easy to use, and built like a tank.

u/LittleHelperRobot · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Non-mobile: This is a better option

^That's ^why ^I'm ^here, ^I ^don't ^judge ^you. ^PM ^/u/xl0 ^if ^I'm ^causing ^any ^trouble. ^WUT?

u/BrendanAS · 2 pointsr/malelifestyle

EZ-DUZ-IT works every time.

u/RareBookCollector · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

EZ-DUZ-IT. Careful about counterfeits though.

u/d4mini0n · 2 pointsr/AskTrollX

Actually, Swing Away was the old name that got bought by a company making cheap can openers. They bought the design and the name but use cheap metal. For the modern equivalent get an EZ-DUZ-IT, which is made in the USA of the same high quality parts (and I think in the same factory) as the old ones.

u/Marzipan86 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Wrath because I SWEAR I am going to chuck a can directly at my fiance if I don't get a functional can opener here soon! (He bought the last one, and he's the one strong enough to use it).

u/Hufflepuft · 2 pointsr/KitchenConfidential

I always keep an EZ-DUZ-IT around for small cans or as a back up. Hasn't failed me yet.

u/southernbabe · 2 pointsr/Cooking

Everyone else has most of the bases covered so here's amazon links if you can't find things at second hand stores/dollar stores/clearance centers.

Storage Containers
Ace Hardware
[Target] (
Rather than getting tupperware get a flat of quart size mason jars. Doesn't spill in transport, works in the freezer, microwave proof without the lid, and doesn't absorb smells or warp with frequent use.
*Alternative is to save glass jars from groceries and wash them for use

Coffee Maker
Get a single cone coffee brewer if you drink coffee. You can buy it on amazon or find it in the coffee section at walmart/target/any grocery really.

Can Opener
Don't buy a can opener at the dollar store or CVS in a bind. Just order this one. I've had it for years with frequent use.

If you have an ikea nearby, they also have a great kitchen section especially for inexpensive flatware sets.

u/wmarsh · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Sorry, the confusion made me screw up my earlier message and contradict myself. I should have said that the EZ-DUZ-IT seems to be the current American-made one. My mistake.

I bought this a month ago and it's great:

u/LPfor3v3r · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yay! I love contests! :)

Anyways, I need this. Everytime I go grocery shopping, I have to try and keep away from canned goods that require a can opener because mine broke about 2 week ago. I've been looking for a good one near me, but none of the places I've checked seem to carry to them.

Chuck Finley! Thanks for the contest! :)

u/nerys71 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

so is that can opener truly bifl quality? (affiliate link stripped out)

I am so tired of cheap damned can openers.

u/Dark_Shroud · 1 pointr/Wellthatsucks

Those kind of can openers can go both ways depending on which way is easier for you to turn. But yes for most people you are correct in the way they move.

u/vocabularian · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Any that are stainless steel should last you a long while. I have this one from Magic Chef: . The one most recommended on this sub is the EZ-DUZ-IT 3028.

u/Pearl_krabs · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

EZ Duz it is what swing a way used to be, still made in USA.

u/slash178 · 1 pointr/NoStupidQuestions

I've had the same experience! I think a big thing is that there is a lot of moisture in your kitchen, and the gears on your can opener are becoming rusty and not spinning right. I've had issues with every can opener until I bought this one:

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/food


u/Schlick7 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

They still make the good can openers. They make them in the US with good quality metal. EZ-DUZ-IT. I think they actually bought the old Swing-Away factory.

u/nufandan · 1 pointr/Cooking

It is stupid how much better this $10 can opener is every others i've had before.

u/Inappropriate_joker · -2 pointsr/everymanshouldhave

all of these have bent. they work for about half of a can, takes a bout 5 min, and then it bends and doesnt work anymore. bought this instead. ive had it for a year and a half with no problems. and its made in america.
