We purchased the Good Grips Jar Opener for our family. My wife sometimes has trouble opening jars and I am not always around. We have tried different brands in the past but we never found one that worked all the time until now.
This jar opener is very easy to use. You just slid the opener on the sides of the jar you want open and give it a little twist.
My wife had a very stubborn jar of spaghetti sauce and we decided to see if the jar opener would work on that jar. My wife tried it and it came off very easily.
I like the non skid mat that also comes with this opener. It really helps the jars stay in place as you twist to get them open.
I think this would be great gift for seniors. In fact we gave my parents one who are in their 70s one and they use it all the time. I think every household should have one.
The handle is comfortable and we have never had a problem with the opener slipping off the jar like we have in previous openers we have tried.
