  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Terrific Device Solved My Problem with Jars

    I have osteoarthritis in my left hand that makes gripping jars and other objects difficult or impossible. Opening jars had become painful and frustrating. This nearly foolproof jar opener is easy to use, gives suitable leverage to twist off tightly sealed lids, requires no batteries or electricity, stores easily in a drawer, and has made opening even the smallest jars and bottles a breeze. What a great design and product—worth every penny!

    I recommend this product.

  • FINALLY ! A JAR OPENER THAT REALLY WORKS!

    After buying eight different (and expensive) jar openers from very high end kitchen stores, I saw this one on the down-to-earth, friend-to-all, all-around-best-Southern-Cook, Paula Deen's website. Ordered it! Received it! Used it! AND, it works! It works easily, efficiently, and effectively. It's used by the smallest grandchild to the oldest (and unfortunately weak) adult in my household. I'm going to buy a couple more for gifts.

    I recommend this product.

  • It works!

    This jar opener works very well, and it is easy to figure out. I bought three of them. Two for people who have weak hands from aging and one for a friend with cancer who has trouble with her hands from chemo. They all like them a lot and use them all the time.

  • Great for anyone who has trouble opening jars

    I have tried many jar openers from simple rubber pads to a battery operated one (which broke after one month). This is simple, easy to use and does not require batteries. It may not fit really big jars, but it works on large pickle jars. Very easy to use.

    I recommend this product.

    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.

    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.
