How To Use a Jar Opener

4

We’ve all been there. You’re about to make a delicious meal or snack, you reach for the jar of pickles, or the ketchup bottle... and it’s stuck fast! 

You try all sorts, from using a damp cloth, to try to prizing it open with a knife (please don’t do this, it’s dangerous!) 

Spare a thought for those who are either elderly, or have hand mobility issues. For these people, opening jars and bottles can become a daily nightmare. 

The Chef Remi Jar Opener is a wonderful gadget that eliminates the stress on hand and wrists, and opens even the most stubborn jars and bottles. 

We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to using our jar opener, so you’ll never start shouting profanities just because you can’t get inside a jar or bottle!

 

1) Choose the correct circular opening

 

The Chef Remi Jar Opener manages to fit in 8 different sizes of jar lids, all in one small, compact device. That’s because of the clever rubber sidings which give each ‘hole’ 2 different sizes. 

Keep this in mind when shopping for a jar opener. Sadly, food manufacturers in the USA don’t have a ‘standard’ jar size, so they come in all sizes. 

Having a device that can handle more than just 2-4 sizes is imperative.

 

 

2) Place the top of the lidded jar into the opening and ensure there are no spaces between the lid and jar opener

 

We’ve added rubberized grips that cling to jar lids so, as long as you’ve picked the correct opening, there should be no gaps between the jar and the jar opener.

 

3) Place the jar on a solid surface, such as a kitchen counter top

 

There’s less chance of food spilling out on to you, and everywhere else, if you keep the jar on a solid surface.

 

4) Grip the jar opener at the base of the handles, even if you are using the largest circular opening at the other end

 

For those of you who can still remember some of your physics lessons at school, you’ll be well aware of why you grip at the base of the handles. 

The further away your hands are from the axis of rotation (in this case, the jar lid) the more force you will apply on the jar lid, without using much force from your hands. 

The Chef Remi Jar Opener can apply ten times more leverage than using your hands alone when used this way!

 

 

5) Turn the jar opener in an anti-clockwise motion

 

US food manufacturers may not be able to agree on jar sizes, but thankfully the vast majority do agree that jars are screwed on clockwise, and unscrewed anti-clockwise.

So turn the handles to the left to unscrew that annoying, tight-lidded jar. 

 

6) Wash food remnants off with soap and water, or throw into a dishwasher.

 

Jars and bottles tend to be filled almost to the brim, so once you have opened your stuck jar or bottle, chances are, some foods or liquids will have got on to the jar opener. 

Simple wash with soap and water, or throw into the dishwasher to make sure your jar opener is clean for the next use, and you don’t contaminate the next jar with remnants of food from previous jar openings.

 

Are you still struggling with stuck jar lids?

Stop hurting yourself! This is the perfect solution for you. 

 

The Chef Remi Jar Opener provides 10x leverage to hands with limited strength, making it effortless to remove stubborn caps and lids. 

Our jar opener is available for $12.95 and is backed with a lifetime guarantee. 

Watch how versatile our Jar Opener is as it functions as a bottle opener too.

My mother is in her late 70s and she always had a hard time trying to open jars. this seem like a easy tool that she can work with ease. hey I even willing to buy one for my self

This seems like a great invention. I usually resort to elastic bands but even that approach does not always work. This device would do a better job than my DIY approach.

Oh, how I wish I could get this gadget available here in my country :(. I have so many pickle jars to open, they contain my granny’s yummy pickles that I can’t afford in my life again. Looking forward to get this gadget within my reach soon :). Thanks for the blog.

Momto5 said: Excellent Kitchen Knife

We have had our Chef Knife for a few weeks and we have used it every single day. Be careful, it is quite sharp! We have used it to cut everything from tomatoes, to onions, to steak. It works effortlessly on everything we have tried. The knife is also easy to clean. We wash it right off with a sponge and it is ready to use next time. The handle is nicely weighted and the knife feels very solid in your hand. The knife is really an important part of our kitchen tools!

zezo said: Excellent quality spatulas

My wife asked me to buy these spatulas because the ones we have are old and a bit smaller.
These spatulas are made of high quality. They look nicer than in pictures. Strong, sturdy and finished to a nice design. Easy to grip and won't leave anything in the cake mixing bowl. Very easy to clean as well. I'm using them now almost everyday and i am glad i bought from this range because they come with a lifetime warranty. I strongly recommend these spatulas and would definitely try some other kitchen products from the same range to go with these red spatulas.

Dawny said: Sharp and sylish too

I've needed some new kitchen scissors for a while now. My current pair are becoming increasingly blunt and to be honest they have small holes for your fingers which actually hurt my hands when I try to use them. These seem to be extremely well made, and are very sharp. So far I've used them only to cut paper, cardboard and packaging. I have not yet used these scissors for food. They look more like scissors for packaging and general tasks rather than actually cutting meat etc with them. But I may get another pair for meats etc further down the line. There is a small cut out on the right hand blade which I believe would be used as a ring pull or can opener. This is a useful feature and a nice additional touch. There are also raised teeth between the two finger/thumb holes which look like they would be useful for opening small bottle tops to help you to get a grip. They're very smart with a black and red design and they have the manufacturers name Chef Remi stamped on the side and also stamped that they are made from stainless steel. A nice pair of kitchen scissors.

Debbie Godschalk said: The best knife I have ever owned hands down!

I have been looking for a quality knife for some time now. I did some research and decided on this one. I am very happy I did. The quality of this knife is outstanding! I am a vegan and do a lot of chopping, and dicing, slicing, and mincing. This is the perfect knife for that. It is very sharp and the handle is very comfortable because it is ergonomically designed so it is easy to use. I also love the fact that it has a LIFETIME REPLACEMENT!!! Can't beat that. if you are on the ropes like I was and looking for a quality knife but don't want to break the bank do not hesitate this is the one.
