This is one of those items that is needed for those with arthritis or for the elderly---it makes opening jar lids simple, once you can figure out how to make it work! That is the one flaw in the item: the directions are not as easy to follow as the item's operating procedures. So, someone needs to show the recipient how to operate this handy item; but once you know how to work it, it's a great device for the kitchen.

This is a device you will wonder how you got along without it.. It opens most jars easily. Once and a while there will be a jar it has to struggle to open. When you hear a popping sound the gears are jumping. Just push the switch on and off until the jar opens.

My wife loves it. Now she can open jars without me around. I hate having to beat on a lid with a knife until it opens..

Having weak wrists and strength in my hands this is a lifesaver! It's easy to use and easy to store as it collapses if needed. Looks good on the countertop as well. The quality is great. I would highly recommend this for anyone who has trouble opening jars. So far it has opened all of the jars I needed opened. My main jar problem are spaghetti sauce type jars..works like a charm!

Since I am a senior citizen, I don't have the strength in my hands I used to. This is the best kitchen tool I have ever purchased. I can now open those jars with no problem. After receiving mine, I also purchased one for my sister, who loves it as much as I do. Great gift for anyone.

I have weak wrists and needed a device that would assist in opening sealed jar lids.
I've tried everything, including manual jar lid openers to no avail.
I decided to order the Black and Decker Lids off Jar opener and could not be any more pleased.

I have had trouble opening jar top for a while, living alone, sometimes the people next door weren't home, so I would have to think of something else to eat. With the Black & Decker Jar opener it's a snap . Love it . Well with every dollar .

It will not open a four and a half inch jar, it will only open a three and a half inch jar. I have one and it is the same modle number and with the same mesurements and it is a Black & Decker JW200 lids off jar opener and mine is even white.

I'm very happy with the product and the service from Fitter Dan. The product came in good condition and came in a timely manner as promised. I would certainly purchase from Fitter Dan again. I've used the product many times since my initial purchase and I'm sorry the rating I originally gave registered as a one. I would give the seller a 5 stars. I really like the product (JW200) because anyone who has hand disabilities, arthritis, is a senior, or anyone who just can't open the vacuumed sealed jars that are purchased at the stores would find this product a big aid to them. All you have to do is take a jar, place it on the bottom receptacle and turn the receptacle following the arrows, this will hold your jar in place. Then using the white switch on top near the handle, you lower the top part of the jar opener onto the jars lid. Next you press down on the gray switch which will move the upper grippers into position on the jar. One set of grippers will move to hold the jar itself and the other two will lock onto the jars lid. While continuing to press the gray switches mechanism down, the lids gripper will turn the jars lid until the lid is unsealed effortlessly.
I originally purchased the Black and Decker JW400 5 years ago for my daughter-in-law and others who needed an aid to help with opening jars, cans and bottles, without assistance from others, and this product was very helpful to them. Everyone loved the product and couldn't believe how easy it was to operate. I wish the Black and Decker company would have continued with this product because there are many people who would benefit from all its users.

I bought this for my mom who has arthritis is her hands really bad thinking this would be great for her...it isn't as good as they say, although it works for the most part, the lid has to be a certain size for it to work really well.

I bought this a while ago for my 78 year old mother. It is used by her all the time. I strongly recommend it for anyone who is elderly/disabled/hates opening jars. It is simple to use and easy to store. A very good product.
