Black and Decker Lids Off Jar Opener solves old kitchen problem

Black-Decker-Lids-Off-Jar-OpenerIf there is one thing that I cannot stand, it is pickle jars. Generally, the lids are so tight and the base is so wide that they are almost impossible to open.

However, if I had myself one of these Lids Off Jar Opener things from Black and Decker, then I would probably never have to worry about that again.

All the user has to do is just put the jar underneath, and it has an adjustable height for all sizes of jars. It also looks like the jar gets grabbed from below, and the lid is somehow captured from atop. It then looks like both grabbed areas will twist with one push of a button, and the jar will come open.

The Lids Off Jar Opener looks like something that practically every home could use. To make it even better, it is completely collapsible.

I don’t know about you, but the initial base of this guy looks a tad skinny for doing pickle jars. I guess I’m going to have to go back to my tried and true method of smacking around the rim with a blunt object, like the kitchen counter.

Still, something tells me that I’m going to need one of these devices when I am a senior citizen with aching joints. Considering that this is only $27, maybe I should get one now.
