We’ve all had that feeling that the things we buy just weren’t made to be opened. And when you have arthritis, items like jars and capped bottles are nearly impossible to open. When you’re having a hard time opening a jar or bottle and your muscular friend or relative is not around to help, don’t be caught alone. We have many different jar openers to choose from.
The jar opener that is right for you depends on how arthritis affects you. Do you have use of both hands? Are there certain movements and twists of the wrists that are particularly painful? These are some things to consider before deciding which jar or bottle opener you wish to use.
For two hands
If you can use both hands to open jars and bottles, the Easy Grip Jar and Bottle Opener will save you quiet a bit of time and effort in the kitchen. The flexible body fits around most jar lid sizes. The smaller section is made for fitting onto water and soda bottles. The serrated edge guarded between the “cat ears” is perfect for tackling those bottles with annoying plastic seals. This three-tools-in-one opener is hard to beat in terms of versatility.
The Maddagrip Opener is also great when using two hands. This simple, lightweight opener is made to open everything from small vials to large bottles and jars.
For one hand
Now let’s look at some single-hand solutions for opening lids. We have a variety of products in this category with lid openers that fit to the wall, under the counter and on the table top.
On the wall
The Zim Jar Opener can attach to the wall and features a strong, metal V-shaped opener capable of prying open just about anything. The wall holds it steady, allowing you simply to twist with one hand.
Under the counter
The Un Skru Jar Opener comes with all the screws needed to mount to the bottom of your countertop. It’s there when you need it and out of the way when you don’t need it.
On the countertop
The SoloGrip One-Handed Jar Opener gets the job done and doesn’t play games. Use it on the counter or within a top drawer. Slide any jar or bottle in the rubber-lined V-shaped slot. Watch the video and see how the bottles and jars pop right open.
The sound of a tight lid popping open is like music to the ears. Enjoy the sweet sound with any one of our versatile lid openers.
