Manual can opener; what's your favorite?
I was using a Farberware opener that cut the lids from the side, which I prefer. However, it only worked well for about a year.

Any recommendations for a longer lasting opener that cuts from the side and not the top?

I prefer the top cut openers.

Swing Away has always worked for me. Looks like they can be had for around $8. Mine is at least 11 years old and still working fine.

We have this one and I really like it. We actually don't own and electric can opener.

I just bought an Oxo Good Grips can opener because my old cheap one crapped out. I haven't used the Oxo yet, but it got good reviews.

I can't find a can opener that will open the whole can at one time. It's like the cans they use now bend and won't allow it continue opening without me starting in a new spot.

Bought an electric one this weekend and can't wait to see how it does.

Looks similar to my pampered chef one. A girl my wife used to work with started selling that stuff. We bought some kitchen shears and a can opener. It cuts from the side, is very easy, and we've been using it several times a week for at least 7-8 years.

Swing-A-Way. Wall mounted or hand held. Smoothest I have ever used.

We went through several electric and manual over the years. We liked an Oxo Good Grips one, but it wore out.

I picked up a Kuhn Rikon, and now that is all we use. They leave a smooth, safe edge and have a pincer to lift the lid off with. Fairly cheap too.

My parents have two of those and they're probably older than me
