  • Jar Top? No Problem!

    This gripper is excellent. It is very easy to use. I bought it for a friend that has trouble opening jar tops from time to time. She does not have a strong grip. I sent her this and after some fun getting it out of its bubble case, she is delighted. She enjoyed it so much, she purchased one for her mother.

    I recommend this product.

  • Simply AWESOME!

    I have used my Gripper Jar opener for quite awhile and have found my arthristis issues resolved. I purchased additional grippers for Christmas gifts.They are a BIG hit. Whether you have challenges or not, this item is a must have for any pantry/kitchen. It illiminates the need to tap, bang, or use hot water on jar or bottle lids! The biggest plus is the virsitality of size for jars/lids. Simply AWESOME! I highly recommend this product to anyone considering a jar/bottle opener (and to those who haven't thought of it!) You won't be disappointed.

    I recommend this product.

  • Terrific Jar Opener

    This jar opener is the best one I have come across. It locks on tight to the lid of the jar or bottle, then you can turn the handle easily. I have very little hand strength due to arthritis. It was very painful and nearly impossible for me to open the twist off caps on 32 oz. bottles of grape, apple or cranberry juice. I have tried so many other jar openers, and none worked nearly as well or as easily as this one. I am so grateful that I finally found it!

    I recommend this product.

  • Ease of use

    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.

    I recommend this product.

  • Not thrilled with this!

    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.

  • Works well, but ...

    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 recommend this product.

  • 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.

  • It works with reservations

    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 recommend this product.

  • not positive yet.

    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

    I recommend this product.

  • A GREAT GRIPPER!

    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

    I recommend this product.

  • This is sure better than my1960s version

    My jar opener finally died after over 40 years of valiant service including pinching my hand occasionally. This one is safe and does the job for someone with very small hands.

    I recommend this product.
