Gingerflies - Review from Williams-Sonoma
Works well but hold on to the jar.This device looks like the Swiss army version of a vise grip. It works and works well, it gives you good grip and ease in turning the jar lid with out having to beat up the lid in the process. However, do make sure you have the jar bottom on a no slip surface and hold the jar level. My first use was with a pickle jar. I didn't hold the jar properly, when the lid released there was pickle brine and pickles all over the counter.
Lovelyflower - Review from Williams-Sonoma
Almost loved itIt worked well on small bottles and I was very happy with it until I needed to open lids that are flat on the side like the pickle jar. It just smashed in the sides and scraped the paint off and then it wouldn't hold tight. I tried it on another flat sided lid and it just dented the side and wouldn't open it.Up to this problem I really did love the ease of using it

Better then a husband.I have one for myself and love it, so I bought one for a neighbor and now she travels with it all the time. She says it is the only thing that opens her water bottles and pop bottles. Will be buying another for another friend as she has arthritis in the hands. Love this item.

no luck opening jars with this jar openerThis jar opener gets a super good grip on the lid of jars but unless you can hold on tight enough to the glass bottom and twist you're out of luck.I really didn't feel that this jar opener gave me any kind of advantage in opening jars- I tried to no avail on several different sizes.Returned it
LoraeS - Review from Williams-Sonoma
No more painful hands!I kept injuring my hands trying to open jars and bottles -- and kept bending utensils trying to loosen the containers' edges to break the vacuum -- and then this arrived and made all those problems go away! It works very well for many different sizes.
