“ Brand: ItJustWorks / Type: Electric jar opener „
I have never had any particular trouble with jar opening, yet it always seems to be the case that when you are especially pressed and need to open something in a hurry it just won't give. In instances such as this I have discovered this product to be a life saver. Now, when I am on my own and faced with a stubborn jar lid, instead of getting frustrated I merely smile because I know I will have it open in a jiffy thanks to the One Touch Opener.
Using the device could not be simpler. All you need to do is place the opener, flat side down, onto the lid of the jar, press the button and watch as the gadget works its way around the lid. When it has completed its job movement will cease, and you are free to liberate the detached lid from the device.
The One Touch is crafted from heavy duty white plastic, and is a little like a computer mouse in appearance, complete with operating button in blue on its top. Beneath the body it is endowed with two strong clamps that look likes ears. The tool has two clamps, one of which attaches itself to the jar, while the other exerts 25lb of pressure while rotating on its axis.
Although the product is advertised is being able to open jars of any size, it is actually limited to regular and vacuum-style screw top jars with lid diameters of 32mm to 101mm and jar diameters of 21mm to 95mm. Since the vast majority of jars fall into this category however, you will very rarely come across a container that the One Touch is not compatible with.
This product operates on two AA batteries, and unless you are using the One Touch for hours on end on a daily basis, you will discover there is sufficient battery life to last months, if not years. This product is especially convenient for those with limited mobility in their hands, but it is so functional I believe most people would benefit from having one of these in their kitchen cupboard at some time or another.
