  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    I recommend this product.
