Just bummed...it doesn't fit my artichoke heart jars, which I struggle with. However, my daughter LOVES it, so it's still a win.

5 Ease of use
December 24, 2013
By Leila, CA
Of course I realize that not having a chance to use it yet, I have made some assumptions in my review. BUT I have bought many jar openers in the past and none have worked well for me. At 72 years of age my strength is not what it used to be, and I have small hands which have made it impossible to use them on openers with wide grips. I have high hopes for this item.

By Brenda, TN
Although I like the concept of this product it doesn't work as easily as advertised - I've tried to use it several times on different types of jars and only got it to work correctly once - disappointed

Wish it accomodated large jars that one might use for picnics like pickles,relish etc. when you are feeding a bunch. These are very hard to open and a man with big hands is not always around.

3 Works well, but ...
December 30, 2012
By Bernadene, KS
This jar opener securely holds almost any lid size and the handle is sturdy and long enough to have leverage to turn without too much effort to loosen the lid. However, one has to have enough strength in the other hand to hold the jar securely.

I assume the product works as intended. I made the purchase based upon the description that it can be used on jar lids of up to 4 inches. It did not fit onto a jar with a lid of 4 inches.

Why did you ship such a small item in such a big box? Not very efficient.

4 It works with reservations
August 16, 2011
By Melvin, FL
It works well on metal caps be they little as on soda bottles or big. Plastic caps have problem as the tynes have a tenancy to slip & it is difficult to tighten.
All in all it is the best I have tried.

I have purchased several different jar openers in the past to assist my wife who has a tough time due to medical reasons. this one works the best for us to date. I would definitely recommend it for people with R.A.

June 23, 2011
By MICHAEL, FL
i think that the plastic might be somewhat flimsy. not positive it might not snap while using. i think maybe something more solid feeling in my hand would give me a better feeling. go to store and compare ones that give you that feeling it might not break while in use. i answered the 2 questions yes above cause they made me but and because it has not broken in use yet

4 A GREAT GRIPPER!
December 21, 2010
By Geneva, WA
I accidently bought this item. It was listed with the CAN openers and looked similar to one I wanted so I bought it.
Turns out I am keeping it because it does a great job with lids I hadn't been concerned about until now.
I use canning jar lids to reseal a lot of things. I keep old canning jars and use them in place of plastic containers. Once in awhile I will find something hidden way back in the back of the fridge and by then the lid is tightly sealed and almost impossible to remove. (peanut butter keeps for months!!)
This gripper does a great job removing those tightly sealed items! I have way less trouble with the lids now and hadn't known I needed the help!! ;D
