Production rates can sometimes suffer due to stubborn, hard-to-open cans. From crank-style mechanisms to firm, ergonomic non-slip grips, these reliable can openers offer an easy-to-use, dependable tool for quickly removing tops from canned goods. Swing away can openers are the kind of can openers that you would typically find in a residential kitchen and are probably the most well-known and recognized type. These can openers are hand-held and manually attach to the can by swinging open the two handles and locking the blade down in place, keeping the handles closed with one hand. There is a crank on the opposite side of the opener that is turned by the free hand until the can is open. These swing away can openers are not made for high-volume kitchens that open more than a handful of cans a day.
