  • What buyers say about Basic Industries International Easy Crush Aluminum Can Crusher

    It was only a few minutes from my house, but it was the highest price I have ever seen for cans.

    I was blessed to have some solid wood exposed in my shabby chic kitchen, and it only took a few minutes to install, because it comes with a screw template that makes it easy to mark the position of the screw holes.

    I purchased this because it looked more difficult than many of the cans on the market, and it came with a template that made it easy to mark the position of the screw holes.

    I bought a can grinder from Menards, but it broke after a month of use, and apparently it's a lot of wear and tear on a standard can grinder.

    I chose this one because it was the only one with no hinges, pins, or bolts and it was solid welded and rolled steel.

    Common Questions


    Does it need to be mounted on the wall, or is it just looking for one that doesn't have to be mounted?


    I mounted mine on a porch support, I don't see how you could use it without it being mounted on something.


    Is it possible to mount this to a 2' piece of 2x4 and leave it flat on a counter?


    If not mounted vertically, any liquid left in cans will leak on surface and it takes a reasonable amount of leverage to crush cans.


    There are pictures of both, but no option to choose which one to look at.


    The Easy Crush is white.


    Is it possible to use it on the table or counter?


    I have two of these can crushing machines and they work well, I think you could mount them on a table or counter, instead of crushing them with a sideways motion.


    Is it possible that a machine would work on small cat food cans?


    Since small cat food cans are a bit thicker in height than the approximate size that soda cans are crushed down to, and cat food cans are usually made of tin and tend to be more resistant to crushing than aluminum soda cans, I don't think it's possible
