I love this gadget! I purchase foods in bulk and then store them in 5 gallon food grade buckets that have the rubber gasket seal in the lid (I get them from the deli section of our local grocery) and it's so hard on the hands to open the lids. This thing is worth the money and a must have for the serious stocker uppers that have buckets of food. (We store up and help others in need.) blessings.

I picked up and compared a couple of these openers from different makers. The metal ones looked to be from the same manufacturer, while the plastic ones didn't vary too much either.

The metal one is better. It's far sturdier than the plastic, and comes with a hammer tip to aid in tapping buckets closed. The plastic opener actually started to show signs of stress fatigue before even making it a quarter way through a lid!

Weight wise, the aluminum opener is 5.4 oz; the plastic 2.4 oz. In my opinion, the extra weight is hardly noticeable, and more than justifies the durability of the aluminum.

Just pick up the cheapest metal version. At the moment of this review, that would be from this listing: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004AM3WHM

I bought a bunch of buckets and lids at Menards for storing horse treats and minerals. The lids proved very difficult to open, so I hopped onto Amazon to search for a lid opener. I saw this one was less than $5, and I got free shipping for being a Prime member, so I ordered it.

I was rather concerned about it being plastic, but it's actually very sturdy. There was no deformation or flexing of the tool while using it.

Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work with the lids that I have. I actually broke one lid because I used too much force trying to get it open. It does help popping the seal in one spot on the lid, but I have to pry it open with my hands after that; if I continue trying to use the tool I just end up damaging the lid.

If it wasn't for other reviews, I never would have bought this to even try. It looks lame and cheap in the listing photos but it's not. It's STURDY and does what it's supposed to do. I've already given it a good work out and it will probably last forever.

It does the job but If I were getting just one I would get the one with the mallet end for almost same price so you can use it for both. Since I wanted two, I got one of each they both do what they are supposed to but it's nice do both jobs if you need to, with one tool. I wish that they were both made in the USA, the company's are in the USA but the products are both made in china, buyer beware if you want to be sure you have to call company.It may say USA just because of the company. What a shame!

I got this thinking I would have one tool for all different sizes of containers. I didn't realize I need a different tool for different containers. Make sure you know what size you need!

Had one of these growing up. Makes opening 5 gallon buckets of food storage a snap! I could never open them without my husbands help, so this will simplify my life. Good quality

I looked high and low for this item. It is a must have for opening 5 gallon seal coat cans or 5 gallon paint cans. It took me forever to open using a screwdriver. This handy opener makes it a cinch. I purchased several for Christmas gifts and of course one for myself.
