Bought one to test it out and could not believe how great this works for opening jars. Plus it is compact for storing in my gadget drawer. This is now my favorite item to bring as a hostess gift for family and friends.
Just purchased one of these to use as last ditch effort before throwing a large jar of artichoke hearts into the trash. My husband (who can normally open everything) could not get the jar open. I tried running hot water on the lid, tapping the lid with a knife, etc., nothing worked. The Easy Jar Opener was used just the way stated and opened immediately. I just ordered another for myself and two for my daughters.
Bought this gadget in Florida - searched everywhere for it in Baltimore - found it at Sur La Table in Towson, Md. Bought 3 - one for me, one for daughter and one for daughter-in-law. It stays on the counter - have used it for every kind of jar imaginable and it works!!
I had a large electric bulky jar opener....I saw Donna in the store...we talked about my move and my extremely limited space...she recommended this opener....crazy little thing is amazing!!!! I said good-by to my big clunker and hello to extra space!!!! Thanks Donna!
My husband tend to pick any of my very nice kitchen gadgets to open up beer or other beverages. I'll keep this closeby so he'll use this instead, for it's intended use. It looks ergonomically correct and compact.
Interested to see if this will help me to open hard to open jars. Currently I dunk jars lip down into a shallow pool of boiling water - that does the trick but it'd be helpful to have a method that doesn't require heating up water.
