My friend, Sally, gave me a vintage ice crusher called the Swing-A-way for my birthday. If it's possible to nearly faint over a vintage kitchen gadget, then I did, and I'm not embarrassed to say so. It still works like a charm. The fact that it's in that lovely shade of vintage pink just about did me in. The Swing-A-Way can opener came on the market in the 1930's invented by a man named Idus Rhodes. Somewhere along the way the ice crusher was made. Highly popular, it has been produced in many colors and can be found easily and is quite affordable. A very fun gift to receive!
