To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have had so many times that I couldn't open jars, bottles, and lots of other containers. This jar opener is the best product I have ever used in my kitchen, and if it broke I would order two the next time. It's so easy to use. You slide the jar opener all the way down to the cap or whatever. Then one easy 1/4" turn opens whatever. It's amazing. It also has worked on my medicine bottles and pepto bismal etc. I absolutely recommend this 100%
I have not been able to get the product to work, I think it is defective. I have tried to open jars and bottles of all sizes and it just slips off the jar or bottle. I am very disappointed as I had one for years and it worked quite well. This one is bad. I don't see where it can be returned and that stinks, its pricy for what it is and it is useless !
bought this jar opener for my sister who has difficulties with opening bottles and jars fitted with screw on/off caps. Item was shipped within a few days of order to my sisters address. Shipping cost from this vendor for std shipping was half of the others, very reasonable. Sister is very happy as the pampered chef Jar Opener, does the job. My wife and I have had one for the last 10 years and it opens tight capped water bottles , soda bottles and jar lids. The opening allows even the smallest bottles like miniature liquor bottles as well as larger tight pickle jars and other food jars. Makes it easy to open.
I have arthritis in my hands pretty bad. Even opening an easy jar or my cokes was difficult. I was visiting my sister at Christmas and she had this jar opener. I couldn't believe how nice it was. I had already purchased a couple of other brands and this particular one was sort of expensive. But I bought it and boy am I glad. It will literally open any and every thing. If you have trouble opening jars, etc. please spend the little extra money and get this. It is a life-saver. I know my neighbors must be glad too cause now I'm not taking every jar/bottle to them to open for me. So I guess its a win-win.
I think it’ll last a long time. But I cannot use it by myself, I need someone to hold the jar. I used to have an OXO before and worked great but gave it as a gift to my aunt. This opener is too bulky to hold with one hand and twist with the other. Probably if is attached to the cabinet it’ll work wonderful.
I love it, but found in on Pampered Chef site for $12.00! Don't understand why it is so much more on Amazon. I got a few years ago & it did not cost anywhere near $30!!! Why such a difference. It is great though & can even open the tiny tops on fingernail polish bottles.
Seems to work but ordered specifically because "answers" indicated there were teeth on both sides to better grip the jar. The one I received 8/28/19 has teeth on only one side. Wish they would include this info in the item description. Over twice as much as another widely available brand name that appears to be identical.
I already owned this jar opener & loved it! So I purchased two for friends at Christmas this year. They love theirs too. We all three have some arthritis in our hands but with this opener, just about any screw jar can be opened with ease. I highly recommend it!
There are certain groceries that have its caps on very tightly. One, a bottle of juice that I use often, is always so tight that I seriously considered not buying it any more. I had other gizmos in my collection that were supposed to be cap openers, but they did not work.
Once I got the hang of The Pampered Chef Jar Opener, opening the juice bottle became amazingly simple.
