Rated 4 out of 5Â by DXER Gilhoolie Jar Opener
The opener does work but it is a on the rickety side when using it. I personally would have preferred paying a little more money to have it made a little better. I think the design and concept is good but the metal could be a little thicker and more mechanically sound. I may be a little more picky about this because I was a machinist for 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lilly1 No Waiting!
I used to have to wait for my son or husband to open jars. Now I can do it myself. I've even used it in the garage and shed for hard to open containers. This product gives the leverage needed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Calicaro The best
I've bought several jar openers and none of them work.
They were the kind that circle the cap with plastic grips that you squeeze together and turn. The did not work. Maybe my hands are just weak. This one was great. I had a jar of pickled green tomatoes that I bought at a Farmer's Market. I had them for weeks and couldn't get them opened. This finally opened it. The tomatoes weren't so great but his gizmo is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kitty B. How I foiled arthritis
As someone who has always been independent, it was really annoying to me that arthritis in my hands made it difficult, if not impossible, for me to open jars. I tried a number of different aids, but nothing worked. Talk about frustration! Then I tried the Gilhoolie Jar Opener. Whoopee! Jars are a breeze now. The Gilhoolie is easy to work, and doesn't require much hand strength at all. Thanks, Vermont Country Store, I'm back to being my independent self!

we got it and tried it on a pickle jar and it would not fit the lid without putting dents into the lid halfway down.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by HYK POOR QUALITY
I had an original Gilhoolie to compare this one to....and although this one is functional, it has many poorer quality components. This unit has metal bent/formed parts...the original has castings which will afford a much longer useful life. I am disappointed in the value of this copy of a great classic product.
