Don’t just take our word for it — some Amazon reviewers love this kitchen gadget.
“I have struggled to open some jars over the past few years as age caught up with the strength in my fingers,” one reviewer said. “Tired of trying hot water to expand the metal tops, rubber pads to grab the tops (which often works and one is included with this opener), and banging the top to free up what is making it stick, I bought this simple gadget. It works great and opens stubborn jars with considerable ease. Well worth having around the kitchen.”
