OpenEase is the one tool no kitchen should be without because it solves a problem that frustrates everyone from time to time.
How To Use
Simply place the jar opener on top of the jar and press the "Open Jar" button. The outer arms grip the jar while the inner arms close tightly around the lid and rotate, loosening the lid effortlessly. It's that simple! Press the "Release Lid" button and the arms let go of the lid and jar. The jar opener will turn off automatically; no off button is needed. If stored in the most compact position, press "Release Lid" first to open arms wide enough to place over jar lid. Then press "Open Jar" to tighten arms around jar and open lid.
Designed By Consumers For Consumers
At Hamilton Beach, every appliance has to perform well for consumers before it ever makes it onto the shelf. As we design products, we seek out honest feedback and opinions from a variety of sources. Now that's Good Thinking.
For the OpenEase Jar Opener, we focused on handgrip, comfort, and control. We talked to The Arthritis Institute and interviewed people with dexterity issues and arthritis. As we sought their feedback about the jar opener, we left no stone unturned. How does it feel in your hand? Which location do you prefer for the buttons? How does it feel when you press them? Once we were clear about consumers' needs, we knew we had a product that would make their lives easier.
Did you know that arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the United States? Approximately 50 million Americans live with arthritis. That makes even the simplest tasks � like opening jars � a daily struggle. * Source: 2007-2009 National Health Interview Survey (conducted by National Center for Health Statistics).
Tips & Care
Do not use with plastic jars. Jar opener is intended only for glass jars with screw-on lids. Be sure the outer arms of the jar opener fit securely on jar to prevent slipping. The jar opener will turn off automatically when the arms reach the outermost or innermost position. For tapered jars, place hand on top of jar opener to hold firmly in place to ensure that the arms do not slip on the jar.
For more compact storage, press the "Open Jar" button to reset the arms to the innermost position. To replace batteries, press and slide the battery compartment cover in the direction of the arrow. After replacing batteries, slide the cover closed in the opposite direction of the arrow. The jar opener may start running when the batteries are installed. This is normal.
Top Customer Reviews
There are only two buttons- one to open the jar, and one to release the lid. When I got it, I was so excited about trying it that I didn't read the full instructions- just the quick start guide. The quick start guide does indeed tell you how the machine actually operates (just open it fully, set it on the jar lid, and press the button- the outer arms grip the jar while the inner arms twist the lid). Well, my husband grabbed the jar as an additional safety measure, but neither of us thought to grip the machine. The quick start guide didn't say anything about holding anything, so....
Anyway, the machine worked great! In about 30 seconds, it had the jar open. But, it worked a little too well. When the lid popped open, the force of the machine twisting it made the lid AND the machine fly off AND twisted the jar out of my husband's grasp. The whole jar went flying and I lost half of the juice and about a dozen olives (like I said, it was a big jar). I thought it was hilarious. Anyway, after I got everything cleaned up, I sat down and read through the actual instruction manual. Lo and behold- it tells you to grip the jar AND keep a firm grip on the machine. That would have been useful in the quick start guide. (yes, I know, you'd think common sense and all, but common sense goes flying when you're excited about something)
All in all- great little product. Slightly larger than I expected but much more easily stored than those big jar opener stands.
UPDATE: My first machine died a quick death (simply stopped working). This is most likely from the flying incident mentioned earlier, though I don't know. It was within 2 weeks of using it, and I contacted the company. They replaced it super quick, and the replacement still works very well. (I'm not sure how long ago that was, but I believe it's been more than a year.)
I do like the one touch operation. It doesn't stop automatically. One must press the "release lid" button to have it release, and then it just keeps opening until the arms are fully extended. To close for storage, press the "open jar" button and let it run through the cycle.
The jar opener comes with batteries. It's a little bulky, but will fit in most kitchen drawers. It works on lids from 1 to 4 inches. I think it's handy to have around when the old spoon on the lid trick doesn't work.
UPDATE 11/19/13: It's been more than a year. I'm relying on this jar opener more and more as the lids are getting tighter or I'm aging very quickly, or maybe I'm just lazy. I've found this jar opener stores best upright on its feet in a cabinet so as to not accidentally push buttons and start a cycle when I don't want. They ought to put a "store" setting on it so we don't need to worry about that.
UPDATE 7/16/15: I still have this and it still works. I don't even try to open jars now. If they are stuck, I take this out. Battery life is great. I don't remember the last time I changed the batteries on it.
UPDATE 3/18/17: Just wanted to come back to let you know how things are going. Coming up on five years now. It still works. Still love it. I know I originally wrote that this works on some jars and not others, but I can't remember the last time I needed it and this didn't work, except when I originally tested it and was looking for a challenge. Anyway, after all this time, I really believe the rating needs to go from four stars to five, so I will up it now.
