Un-Skru Jar Opener


Opens every size screw lid from 1/2 inch to 5 inches

If you want to open a stubborn jar lid, this is the easiest gadget I’ve ever used ($13), and I’ve used a few. I’ve owned one of these for the last two decades. I’ve only ever bought one. The first one was in a house I bought and I couldn’t figure out what it was for the longest time. I don’t even remember how I figured it out anymore, but when I moved out and forgot to grab it I bought another that I’ve kept since. I don’t expect I’ll ever need to buy it twice unless I forget it again. It’s simple, built more than well enough for the task, has zero moving parts, is easy to use once you know how it works, and is completely out of sight but always readily available. It may be the best $13 I’ve ever spent. Amazon sells them (what don’t they sell). Which is where I got mine. I don’t often need it, but I can imagine people with weak grip strength or arthritis would find this a minor miracle.
