  • 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.

  • 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 have tossed out several jar openers that worked, but took too much effort. This one is amazing. I've used it on several different sizes, and still can't believe how easy this one is and how little effort is needed.

  • Better than One Touch

    I've tried many jar openers, some helpful, some indifferent, some completely worthless. One Touch (battery operated) was the best until I go the Gripper. It grips better than anything I've used through many decades. The trouble with the battery -operated ones is, if you're hands aren't in the best of condition it can be a problem getting the batteries in and out. The Gripper costs a bit more than many others but it's better to have it than a drawer full of inferior openers.

    I recommend this product.

  • Problem solved!

    I have a minor problem causing pain in my dominant hand. The Gripper Jar Opener allows me to open any jar/bottle effortlessly. It would be amazing for customers with arthiritis or any kind of hand pain or lack of hand strength. Next time you are frustrated trying to open a lid or cap, consider this terrific product.

  • Excellent product

    My father is 85 years old and has been unable to open jars and even his bottled water because of arthritis and lack of strength in his hands. He is so pleased he is once again able to do these things. He resides in an assisted living center and is getting requests where to get this product. It works great!

    This is truly an easy way to open a jar LID...Have had to have my husband hold a large jar so it wouldn't slip away from me. Solved that problem by putting the jar on a dish towel.

  • The Gripper Jar Opener has been the best thing I've purchased in a long time. After wrist surgery and tendonitis in both thumbs, I can again open jars myself instead of asking for help from my husband.

  • This jar opener is indispensable, unless you have a husband or older son around all the time to open stubborn jar lids.

    Perhaps it's because I'm getting older but it seems as if manufacturers put lids on to stay. Even bottle caps on small bottles are a struggle. I got tired of feeling helpless and having to ask my husband or son to open things for me.

    I looked at all the different kinds of openers and decided on this one because of the positive customer reviews. I really didn't expect it to work so well. So far it has opened the stubbornist caps. I don't even bother trying to open them now. I just reach for the Gripper Jar Opener. I love it. It should be in every home.

    I recommend this product.
