Beer Can Crusher

Can crusher reviews and information to help you find the best devices.

The biggest mistake that people will make when looking for a beer can crusher is the fact that they won’t read the fine print closely when looking at the description of the product they’re buying.

A beer can crusher must be able to handle all sizes of beer can, as there’s no one standard beer can size.  Your typical aluminum can crusher will be specifically designed to handle 12 ounce cans of soda, as this is the size of the vast majority of cans.

Beer cans, on the other hand, can very often be different.  Twelve ounces would normally be considered quite small for a beer, but cans do exist in this size.  However, there are 16 ounce cans made by companies like Coors, but there are also pint cans, 20 ounce cans, and the 24 ounce cans of beers like Budweiser that you’ve probably seen in stores.

With this knowledge in mind, you’ll want to get a beer can crusher that can typically handle all sizes of aluminum cans.  Otherwise, you’ll be in a position that leaves your device limited in terms of how much it’s able to help you.

There are many places that you can buy a beer can crusher from, and they’ll typically begin with local options like Ace Hardware, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, and other major retailers.

On the other hand, you can look online for a beer can crusher, as many online retailers like Amazon offer a wide variety of can crushers.  Again, the one that you find should probably be different from a typical soda can crusher, as the size of a beer can will often be larger.

One well known beer can crusher that may fit the bill here is The Crusher Can Crusher, which is offered through a handful of major chains.  The advantage here is the fact that it does actually handle cans of all sizes, which plays right into what you’ll need to look for here.  It comes with a wall mount, making it a device that saves you space in more than one respect.

The biggest gripe that owners have with a beer can crusher is the fact that some of them wear down over time.  Think about any small device that comes into a good deal of contact with sharp metal by applying heavy pressure, and there’s a good chance that it may wear down over time.  With that in mind, you may want to try to seek out a device that has a built in warranty, or at least positive feedback from customers who may have owned the device for a few years and still use it.

There are also sites that show you how to make your own beer can crusher, though this can be a tedious process that you’d rather avoid by paying 20 or 30 dollars for a ready made unit.

Lastly, there are easy pull and automatic or electric beer can crushers.  Which one you decided to go with should depend on your budget and how much “work” you’re willing to put in.
