There's just no substitute for old-fashioned quality and ingenuity. Case in point: this time-proven jar opener. Great for people with weak or arthritic hands, it easily opens all types of jars and bottles by placing the opener on the lid and turning the wooden handle. 3½" long closed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by JCMeeks Jar Opener OK
We had a similar jar opener but lost it while moving. So when I saw yours my husband & I jumped to buy it. The reason I gave a 4â rating is that the jar opener we had was better made than the 1 we got from you. Our old 1 opened twist topped soda lids. Yours can't. The jar lid teeth when closed touched & were not stepped but rounded so it actually grabbed & dented the lid when it opened the jar. The moving mechanism was easier & smoother to move because the teeth that moved with the sprocket were smaller & so had more teeth.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Mawsie This product doesn't work!
My husband and I tried this product on several jars of different sizes and lid types. It did not work as it does not grip the jar lid but simply slides around. It is in the junk.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by "Book 'em" The Curse Of Opening Store Products
Being retired career law enforcement, I have always prided myself on my hand strength. However, being almost 85 now, for some unknown reason, I am finding kitchen products more difficult to open these days.
I am alone now, and all of my mechanical openers seem to have gone with my two former wives. Getting tired of using plyers, and vice grips to open simple kitchen products, I finally purchased a Gilhooly from you, both for practical and nostalgic reasons.
As good as the Gilhooly is, I felt that I needed a more simple tool for normal jar lids, so I also purchased this Twister Jar Opener. I should now be set for everything not encased in hard plastic, for which I currently am using heavy-duty scissors, and trying to avoid going to the hospital with wicked cuts.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lovermont Favorite item from my childhood
This, along with our copper juice-o-matic, was a favorite item from my childhood home. There was one jar opener and four of us kids. My older brother took the jar opener, and as long as it didn't end up in a landfill I was happy, but I coveted one and would pop into antique stores from time to time, looking for a replacement. I was so happy to find this at the store several years ago! It is somewhat flimsier than the old one, but works very well. I have arthritis and I am so grateful to have it. My plan is to make sure my daughter takes it. Tradition!
