The crusher itself works great! We have had it now for a month almost and it has crushed many coke cans effortlessly. However it took forever to get to us. I ordered it December 16th and it didn't arrive until Jan 2 but Lehman's refunded me for the extra 3day shipping cost.

Don't order the can crusher. You can crush better by hand. It's VERY flimsy and made out of plasti . It costs $17.95 but by the time you pay shipping you are paying over $25. I was going to send it back but paying for shipping out here and back it would cost more than the can crusher.

Yes, I admit that it does seem flimsy - but we have had this same product for over 16 years at our current home, having moved it from our previous residence (we had it for quite a while there, also). I would not have any qualms about purchasing this product again if I needed to - but I don't think I'll have to, the way this one has held up. Before this one, we had purchased a really heavy-duty metal crusher, but had to replace it after a relatively short time because it no longer would work. We hung ours in the garage, right over the recycling container - so there are no issues with anyone running into the handle. And yes... it's way better than stomping cans with your foot :)

This product is flimsy and clumsy to use. You're better off crushing your aluminum cans with a shod foot.

I do not understand. This product works as stated, exactly as stated. No, it is not a heavy duty model that will crush steel cans; however, it is not advertised as such and the cost is far below a heavy duty crusher. I find this unit easy to use and so does my grandson. It works, that's all there is to say.

It's quite a stretch calling this heavy duty. I'd call it flimsy. It's also a stretch saying it will hold 10 cans. It might hold 8 - 9 is the 9th one is sticking out the top. The handle hangs down so it's in the way with no way to hold it up. I have a rubber band holding my handle up. I installed one at home and bought one for a restaurant, but I'm reluctant to install the one in the restaurant because I don't have room for the handle sticking out, and I'm afraid someone will bump into it and it will fall apart.
