I have arthritis in both hands, particularly in my thumbs.
Veronica Dickens
It took too much force to get the teeth to engage properly, and the device would slip off the lid, with the teeth cutting my hand which was holding the jar.
Joan
It helps with certain jars that I can't open using other methods.

I've read through reviews of this and a similarly-designed Oxo jar opener, but have not been able to find one which tells how to operate this device. Sure, it would seem obvious: hold the jar upright with one hand; bring the opener, teeth downward, over the jar lid; twist. But when used in this fashion the tool failed me almost every time. It took too much force to get the teeth to engage properly, and the device would slip off the lid, with the teeth cutting my hand which was holding the jar.

Common sense would seem to dictate that I throw it away, but bull-headedness prevented me from doing so. I kept thinking that I was the problem. After all, would a company design a product that not only failed to function as advertised, but injured the user? Answer: yes.

But one day I tried using it in a different way, and since then it has worked every time and without injury. Here's how: Lay the jar opener on the counter with the flat side down and teeth facing upwards; upend the jar and insert the lid as far back into the opener as you can; twist. If you're strong enough that you can make this work using one hand on the jar and one hand on the handle of the opener, good for you. I'm not, so since I have to use both hands to grasp the jar in order to break the seal, the opener wants to rotate while I'm twisting. To prevent that, I just position myself up against the counter so that the handle hits my hip and stops. Lid twists, seal breaks. Success!

Oh, wait! If you forget to IMMEDIATELY turn the jar upright as soon as the lid starts to move, and finish opening it in the upright position, any liquid in the jar will be obeying the laws of gravity and leaking out onto you and the counter. So don't forget this last little step.

Hope this helps someone. And no, I don't recommend anyone buy this miserable device. But if you already own one, now you know how to make it work.

Generally I like OXO products - well designed and well made for the money. But this one is put together with spit...as my father would say. Had about a dozen jar openings with my unit until the pickle jar gave this opener a run for its money. Pressing on the handle firmly against the lid, the opener gave way and broke into three pieces - the handle went in one direction, the blade in another a a very thin and insufficiently strong plastic retainer went in yet another direction. The pickle jar sat there unmoved by all this wasted energy. All now residing the the circular file.

This only works on lids that are just the right size and not too tight. Waste of money in my opinion.

I have no problems with this lid opener, and that is with my several pain conditions in my hands that affect my grip strength. I place the jar on the counter, hold it with one hand, and hold the opener with the other, place it snug on top of the lid so the lid is against the narrow center. Then turn the tool counter clockwise (Lefty Loosen)and the jar clockwise. The lid is off faster than it took me to write this.This is a five star item in my house, something that allows me some independence from needing some big strong guy to open jars for me. Great for the single woman, child, or arthritic/disabled person. Men too.

I'm surprised to see such poor reviews for this product (and also surprised to see that Amazon has it priced so high). I like to think that I can open jars on my own, but I often find myself resorting to this jar opener. Yes, it does have a tendency to slip, but if you take care to position it (and it certainly does fit a wide range of jars--that's the purpose of the triangular shape), you can get a tight, secure fit that will make it easy to twist the lid right off. If you could find this at a cheaper price, I would definitely recommend it.

This jar opener is a necessary impliment for your kitchen drawer, especially if weak hands are a problem. I would be lost without it, have had one for over 25 years, and also it makes a terrific present.

I love the jar opener by OXO. OXO is one of the best companies there is. This is my second jar opener from OXO, however, it is not as good as the first jar opener I purchased with the red sticker that said Jar Opener. The teeth do not grip as well so I cannot get the caps off. Even a milk bottle. I am disabled and this product is not manufactured as well as the first. I would ask to exchange it, but it is too much trouble.
