A great tool that you will not regret buying. It takes up little space in a draw and takes the pain out of opening jars. If a visitor sees you using it they will almost certainly want one. So if you need a spare then look on Amazon amazon.co.uk/Ran…ner

Why not just use a teaspoon or knife instead? Much quicker and cheaper

just stab it in the centre with a sharp knife/screwdriver, seal broken.

Doubt it is quicker and definitely safer. Also good for folks who suffers with arthritis.

I use the end of the handle to give the middle of the jar lid a dunt that does the trick without using the blade end which may dull it.however this method may not be suitable for all.
I just ask the missus to open stubborn jars for me. She's got hands like a goalkeeper.

Just tried a dessert spoon as it fits more easily in the gap, couldn't believe how easy it was, doesn't need any force, thanks.

Wouldn't have known without the OP's post but cold given free is always better

Just turn your jar upside down and bang down on hard surface, 1/4 turning jar and it will soon open easily.

Have always given mine a sharp knock on the living room floor. ( has to be the living room, as all the rest are wooden floors downstairs , don't want a dent ! ) My nan used to do the same thing , not on my floor mind , that wouldn't have been very convenient for her
I haven't had a visitor since 1947 - and they didn't want one of these
Teaspoon everytime
Thanks OP Some good ideas that I will try next time I cant get marmalade jar open. I bought a Bottle/Jar opener on ebay for a Quid its made of Rubber but its not large enough to do Marmalade jar GRRRRR I was considering spending another quid one of a different design, hopfully no need now.

Getting old is bad enough, having to spend money because of it is heartbreaking.
