    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    We've had this jar opener for several years so we've had lots of experience with it from little to huge jars. Occasionally, it will begin the cap on an averaged sized jar. The usual effect is that it slips off the lid quickly thereby causing bruised fingers. The metal "grabbers" on the underside of the Rikon are just not powerful enough, or perhaps not positioned well, to begin most jar lids. Often, the "thumb wheel" on top of the gadget has to be held with one finger and putting tension on the thumb wheel while attempting to twist off the lid. This is a beautiful difficult task and also a bit dangerous. Sometimes it takes a second person to keep tension on the top thumb wheel while the other person tries to twist off the lid. More often than not, we just run warm water over the lid, tap it lightly with a plastic hammer and twist the lid off with bare hands. Other times, a common strap wrench (the kind you obtain in a hardware store) works well too. This Kuhn Rikon looks amazing in the kitchen drawer but doesn't work to well for opening jar lids.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    This is an perfect tool for me. I have a lot of pain in my fingers when I test to grab and twist off lids from jars. Ah the missed days of youth! What I like the most is that I don't have to squeeze - which is the action that triggers my pain. The picture of the item is old as the item now has a larger knob that you turn to tighten the tool on to a jar. Then by pushing the handle, the lid twists off. Excellent too for those that have lost that powerful squeezing ability. I love it. Oh, and I did read the review of the one person who broke their jar opener - who must be awfully powerful to break it - and who most likely didn't need the tool in the first place. I see no happening that could happen to break this tool. That's just what I think.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    This is a very versatile jar opener that, unlike so a lot of others, expands with a twist of the knob to accommodate larger jar lids. Once applied and tightened, the handle provides amazing leverage to begin even the most stubborn of jars. I tried to begin a wide-mouthed pickle jar by hand and no success after a lot of tries which included running the lid under hot water and knocking it versus a granite countertop. Opening the jar had to wait until this handy unit arrived. Once again, I tried to begin the jar by hand without success. Then I applied the Kuhn Rikon to the pickle jar, tightened it versus the edges of the lid, grabbed the handle and then......voila! It opened with one nudge.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    This tool is fantastic. Due to carpal tunnel and some arthritis, I'm having a hard time opening jars and bottles. It works on everything from water/soda bottles to pickle jars to laundry detergent. Easy to use, just put it over the top and tighten the lever, and open. The only time it isn't so simple to use is opening little jars, because it's difficult to obtain a grip on the jar itself so you can use force on the lid. Still, it's awesome, highly recommend it.

    ...and I can usually muscle them off, but it can be really hard sometimes. Nice to have this beauty to fall back on if necessary. It can fit any jar I can search in my kitchen. It has been foolproof at fitting and gripping lids. Powering them off with the long handle is a breeze. I have older relatives that absolutely need a amazing jar opener and I will be ordering for them. I'll be there myself in a few years, so I'll be ready. I also like the "jar pop" style opener, which is quicker/easier to use but does not fit as wide a dozens of lids. Amazing to have both. But if you are only going to have one, this is it. Indispensable tool for every improvement: add markings to tell people which method to twist the knob to tighten the teeth versus the lid and which method to twist the handle to loosen the lid from the jar. Both are the standard (clockwise to tighten, opposite to loosen) Lots of people have a bit of confusion over this, and since you have two things and two various directions, it is especially likely here.

    I have arthritis and also a demyelenating neurological disorder that causes pain and weakness in hands. I have had problem for years opening jars and bottles. My husband (love him dearly) bought this for me and it has been a lifesaver. I have used this to begin pickle jars, jam, soda bottles and even my water bottles. It's adjustable and uses small metal teeth (which I was opposed to previously) but if you secure it nicely on the lid it works spectacularly! No more frustrating nights home alone not being able to begin things...this device has been amazing for me and I recommend it! Hold in mind, there is a crank handle to turn on the top of it to adjust the teeth to meet the diameter of the lid, so if your pain is too poor or you have loss of dexterity in your hands this may not work for you....but it's worth a try. I was a small scared of the twist knob on the top, but have not had any problem with it.

    I've had a few jar-assist gadgets but nothing works like this. Just center over the lid, turn the wing screw on top, then use the handle to give a amazing turn. I remember from my physics class a lot of decades ago that a lever (the handle) increases the power of the push/pull and by golly it sure does! One caution: do not over tighten the screw. It can actually compress the sides of the lid and then the lid binds harder to the jar. Just snug is all you need!

    I can't live without this item. Simple to use. When a jar or bottle seems impossible to open, this small gadget really works. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it replaced a related opener that I had for years. My old one finally gave out. Unfortunately, when I compared the two, I found my fresh one was not as well made. I doubt it will latest as long as my older model.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review [Book]  2019-12-6 18:22

    Our old jar opener was the type with 4 sizes lined with thick rubber to support you grip and turn. The rubber finally gave out and started to disintegrate so after considering cheaper replacements, I decided on this tool instead. So glad I did! I like this much better than our old one and I think this will latest a long time. Highly recommend!

    Oh my goodness… This is the jar opener of my dreams! I have tendinitis in my wrist and not good arthritis in my hands. What a difference this small contraption has made… Those Swiss people are really smart. I can’t believe how I have struggled until I bought this… Some small things that you come across are so life-changing. For all my fellow senior citizens out there I can’t recommend this enough. And it beats paying $85 for one of those electric ones.

Both are the standard (clockwise to tighten, opposite to loosen) Lots of people have a bit of confusion over this, and since you have two things and two various directions, it is especially likely here.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review []  2019-12-9 18:6

    I have arthritis and also a demyelenating neurological disorder that causes pain and weakness in hands. I have had problem for years opening jars and bottles. My husband (love him dearly) bought this for me and it has been a lifesaver. I have used this to begin pickle jars, jam, soda bottles and even my water bottles. It's adjustable and uses small metal teeth (which I was opposed to previously) but if you secure it nicely on the lid it works spectacularly! No more frustrating nights home alone not being able to begin things...this device has been amazing for me and I recommend it! Hold in mind, there is a crank handle to turn on the top of it to adjust the teeth to meet the diameter of the lid, so if your pain is too poor or you have loss of dexterity in your hands this may not work for you....but it's worth a try. I was a small scared of the twist knob on the top, but have not had any problem with it.

    I've had a few jar-assist gadgets but nothing works like this. Just center over the lid, turn the wing screw on top, then use the handle to give a amazing turn. I remember from my physics class a lot of decades ago that a lever (the handle) increases the power of the push/pull and by golly it sure does! One caution: do not over tighten the screw. It can actually compress the sides of the lid and then the lid binds harder to the jar. Just snug is all you need!

    I can't live without this item. Simple to use. When a jar or bottle seems impossible to open, this small gadget really works. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it replaced a related opener that I had for years. My old one finally gave out. Unfortunately, when I compared the two, I found my fresh one was not as well made. I doubt it will latest as long as my older model.

    Oh my goodness… This is the jar opener of my dreams! I have tendinitis in my wrist and not good arthritis in my hands. What a difference this small contraption has made… Those Swiss people are really smart. I can’t believe how I have struggled until I bought this… Some small things that you come across are so life-changing. For all my fellow senior citizens out there I can’t recommend this enough. And it beats paying $85 for one of those electric ones.

    Kuhn Rikon Deluxe Gripper Jar Opener Strain-free Lid Opening, Red review []  2019-12-9 18:7

    We've had this jar opener for several years so we've had lots of experience with it from little to huge jars. Occasionally, it will begin the cap on an averaged sized jar. The usual effect is that it slips off the lid quickly thereby causing bruised fingers. The metal "grabbers" on the underside of the Rikon are just not powerful enough, or perhaps not positioned well, to begin most jar lids. Often, the "thumb wheel" on top of the gadget has to be held with one finger and putting tension on the thumb wheel while attempting to twist off the lid. This is a beautiful difficult task and also a bit dangerous. Sometimes it takes a second person to keep tension on the top thumb wheel while the other person tries to twist off the lid. More often than not, we just run warm water over the lid, tap it lightly with a plastic hammer and twist the lid off with bare hands. Other times, a common strap wrench (the kind you obtain in a hardware store) works well too. This Kuhn Rikon looks amazing in the kitchen drawer but doesn't work to well for opening jar lids.

    This is a very versatile jar opener that, unlike so a lot of others, expands with a twist of the knob to accommodate larger jar lids. Once applied and tightened, the handle provides amazing leverage to begin even the most stubborn of jars. I tried to begin a wide-mouthed pickle jar by hand and no success after a lot of tries which included running the lid under hot water and knocking it versus a granite countertop. Opening the jar had to wait until this handy unit arrived. Once again, I tried to begin the jar by hand without success. Then I applied the Kuhn Rikon to the pickle jar, tightened it versus the edges of the lid, grabbed the handle and then......voila! It opened with one nudge.

    This is an perfect tool for me. I have a lot of pain in my fingers when I test to grab and twist off lids from jars. Ah the missed days of youth! What I like the most is that I don't have to squeeze - which is the action that triggers my pain. The picture of the item is old as the item now has a larger knob that you turn to tighten the tool on to a jar. Then by pushing the handle, the lid twists off. Excellent too for those that have lost that powerful squeezing ability. I love it. Oh, and I did read the review of the one person who broke their jar opener - who must be awfully powerful to break it - and who most likely didn't need the tool in the first place. I see no happening that could happen to break this tool. That's just what I think.

    This tool is fantastic. Due to carpal tunnel and some arthritis, I'm having a hard time opening jars and bottles. It works on everything from water/soda bottles to pickle jars to laundry detergent. Easy to use, just put it over the top and tighten the lever, and open. The only time it isn't so simple to use is opening little jars, because it's difficult to obtain a grip on the jar itself so you can use force on the lid. Still, it's awesome, highly recommend it.

    ...and I can usually muscle them off, but it can be really hard sometimes. Nice to have this beauty to fall back on if necessary. It can fit any jar I can search in my kitchen. It has been foolproof at fitting and gripping lids. Powering them off with the long handle is a breeze. I have older relatives that absolutely need a amazing jar opener and I will be ordering for them. I'll be there myself in a few years, so I'll be ready. I also like the "jar pop" style opener, which is quicker/easier to use but does not fit as wide a dozens of lids. Amazing to have both. But if you are only going to have one, this is it.

What I like the most is that I don't have to squeeze - which is the action that triggers my pain. The picture of the item is old as the item now has a larger knob that you turn to tighten the tool on to a jar. Then by pushing the handle, the lid twists off. Excellent too for those that have lost that powerful squeezing ability. I love it. Oh, and I did read the review of the one person who broke their jar opener - who must be awfully powerful to break it - and who most likely didn't need the tool in the first place. I see no happening that could happen to break this tool. That's just what I think.

    This tool is fantastic. Due to carpal tunnel and some arthritis, I'm having a hard time opening jars and bottles. It works on everything from water/soda bottles to pickle jars to laundry detergent. Easy to use, just put it over the top and tighten the lever, and open. The only time it isn't so simple to use is opening little jars, because it's difficult to obtain a grip on the jar itself so you can use force on the lid. Still, it's awesome, highly recommend it.

    ...and I can usually muscle them off, but it can be really hard sometimes. Nice to have this beauty to fall back on if necessary. It can fit any jar I can search in my kitchen. It has been foolproof at fitting and gripping lids. Powering them off with the long handle is a breeze. I have older relatives that absolutely need a amazing jar opener and I will be ordering for them. I'll be there myself in a few years, so I'll be ready. I also like the "jar pop" style opener, which is quicker/easier to use but does not fit as wide a dozens of lids. Amazing to have both. But if you are only going to have one, this is it. Indispensable tool for every improvement: add markings to tell people which method to twist the knob to tighten the teeth versus the lid and which method to twist the handle to loosen the lid from the jar. Both are the standard (clockwise to tighten, opposite to loosen) Lots of people have a bit of confusion over this, and since you have two things and two various directions, it is especially likely here.

    I have arthritis and also a demyelenating neurological disorder that causes pain and weakness in hands. I have had problem for years opening jars and bottles. My husband (love him dearly) bought this for me and it has been a lifesaver. I have used this to begin pickle jars, jam, soda bottles and even my water bottles. It's adjustable and uses small metal teeth (which I was opposed to previously) but if you secure it nicely on the lid it works spectacularly! No more frustrating nights home alone not being able to begin things...this device has been amazing for me and I recommend it! Hold in mind, there is a crank handle to turn on the top of it to adjust the teeth to meet the diameter of the lid, so if your pain is too poor or you have loss of dexterity in your hands this may not work for you....but it's worth a try. I was a small scared of the twist knob on the top, but have not had any problem with it.

    I've had a few jar-assist gadgets but nothing works like this. Just center over the lid, turn the wing screw on top, then use the handle to give a amazing turn. I remember from my physics class a lot of decades ago that a lever (the handle) increases the power of the push/pull and by golly it sure does! One caution: do not over tighten the screw. It can actually compress the sides of the lid and then the lid binds harder to the jar. Just snug is all you need!

    I can't live without this item. Simple to use. When a jar or bottle seems impossible to open, this small gadget really works. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because it replaced a related opener that I had for years. My old one finally gave out. Unfortunately, when I compared the two, I found my fresh one was not as well made. I doubt it will latest as long as my older model.

    Oh my goodness… This is the jar opener of my dreams! I have tendinitis in my wrist and not good arthritis in my hands. What a difference this small contraption has made… Those Swiss people are really smart. I can’t believe how I have struggled until I bought this… Some small things that you come across are so life-changing. For all my fellow senior citizens out there I can’t recommend this enough. And it beats paying $85 for one of those electric ones.

    We've had this jar opener for several years so we've had lots of experience with it from little to huge jars. Occasionally, it will begin the cap on an averaged sized jar. The usual effect is that it slips off the lid quickly thereby causing bruised fingers. The metal "grabbers" on the underside of the Rikon are just not powerful enough, or perhaps not positioned well, to begin most jar lids. Often, the "thumb wheel" on top of the gadget has to be held with one finger and putting tension on the thumb wheel while attempting to twist off the lid. This is a beautiful difficult task and also a bit dangerous. Sometimes it takes a second person to keep tension on the top thumb wheel while the other person tries to twist off the lid. More often than not, we just run warm water over the lid, tap it lightly with a plastic hammer and twist the lid off with bare hands. Other times, a common strap wrench (the kind you obtain in a hardware store) works well too. This Kuhn Rikon looks amazing in the kitchen drawer but doesn't work to well for opening jar lids.

    This is a very versatile jar opener that, unlike so a lot of others, expands with a twist of the knob to accommodate larger jar lids. Once applied and tightened, the handle provides amazing leverage to begin even the most stubborn of jars. I tried to begin a wide-mouthed pickle jar by hand and no success after a lot of tries which included running the lid under hot water and knocking it versus a granite countertop. Opening the jar had to wait until this handy unit arrived. Once again, I tried to begin the jar by hand without success. Then I applied the Kuhn Rikon to the pickle jar, tightened it versus the edges of the lid, grabbed the handle and then......voila! It opened with one nudge.
