Aids to open jars

<< < (4/4)

I've never found anything better than these old fashioned ones that come in two pieces, clamp down on the jar and then provide a nice long lever to get them open.  I don't think anyone still makes them - but they turn up in charity shops sometimes:

I use two hands but for all except the tightest lids I imagine they would work fine if the jar was supported between the legs or under the arm.

Rubber gloves work well for me......I once wrote to the makers of Branston pickle as I sprained my wrist trying to open one of their pickle jars, it was ridiculously jammed on, how someone with arthritis would have managed I have no idea....
