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.

HQR said: Finally - I've Found A Paring Knife That Feels Right And Works As It Should!

For the last eight years or so, I have been trying to find a good replacement paring knife for an antique one that accidentally got thrown away with potato peelings. I've tried a ton of different ones, from dollar store brands all the way to expensive name brand knives. None has worked well for me - either because they don't cut as they're supposed to, or because they just don't feel right in my hand. But this one is perfect!!! It fits in my hand naturally and slips right through foods as I'm peeling and slicing them. It looks beautiful and I love the fact that it has a lifetime warranty in case anything does go wrong. I highly recommend it!

Jessica H said: Best spoon set

Having a dishwasher safe spoon set gives me the freedom to use it anyway I choose and not worry about clean up. I used the vented one for getting my vegetables and it made serving for picky eaters who don't want their food touching,, especially the juice for another food. Effortlessly I drained the vegetables. Thanks for making my life easier and the spoon rest helped to make cooking sanitary. Any cook knows cooking can get messy and you seem to run out of counter space quickly but having the clean surface to quickly put the spoon down.

I haven't had an opportunity to use these yet but I am looking forward to trying them out soon. I can say that they are somewhat heavy and not thin and they are made very well. Just from holding them in my hands and looking at them, I can honestly say that this product is better made then the others
