This Space-Saving Amazon Find Takes the Hassle Out of Opening Jars (and It’s on Sale!)
It’s a familiar scene: You’re hunched over, banging a jar against the countertops, strategically tapping the lid with a knife, or using a towel to ease the pain on your hands while struggling to open up the pickles (or dijon mustard, jam, tomato sauce, maple syrup… you get the idea). Well, what if we were to tell you that we found a product to ease those dreaded kitchen scenarios? The EZ Off Jar Opener pops any lid or cap right off of bottles and jars with one swift movement from you. Better yet, it adheres to the underside of the cabinet for easy access, taking up otherwise unutilized space. And it’s on sale! Right now, for under $25, you can kiss that strain and struggle goodbye and start opening jars with ease.
The EZ Off Jar Opener’s V-shaped design can tackle the most stubborn lids and caps of any size and material. We’re talking water bottles, liters of soda, mason jars, peanut butter, and every twist-off condiment in the pantry or fridge. It can easily open a small bottle of nail polish or a wide jar of marshmallow fluff. Plus, the peel-and-stick adhesive has three small screws for extra stability, which makes for quick and easy installation under a kitchen cabinet (just three minutes to install, according to Amazon reviewers). Translation: This genius find takes up zero drawer space.
If the multitude of uses for this tool aren’t enough to make you click “add to cart,” how about the more than 14,000 five-star ratings? The Amazon reviews are flooded with satisfied customers who swear by the EZ Off Jar Opener. One customer writes, “I have tried a million different tools and gadgets for help in opening jars of all sizes, and each one had its own issues! Finally, someone has invented the perfect jar opener that is simple and requires no space in your kitchen drawers or counters… I have already placed an order for another one for a gift for my sister.” Another customer adds, “With all the junk you can order off the internet it’s refreshing to get something that actually works exactly as advertised.”
For best results, reviewers suggest installing the opener with the sharp end of the “V” closest to you at the front, right corner under your cabinet.” One user writes, “You can pull the jar towards you while turning it the normal way (clockwise) and it will open in half a turn or less!”
