Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job! JarKey was a last minute purchase as I was about to check out of the store. When I got home I could hardly wait to try it because it really did seem to good to be true. It popped the lid sufficiently to release the vacuum seal and I unscrewed the jar with no problem. I was so impressed that I ordered 7 more of them to give as gifts. And when I run out of those, I shall buy some more. Why struggle to open jars when there is such a solution? The JarKey is a good looking implement as well. December 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Love this product! Makes opening a jar so-o-o-o-o easy! Great stocking stuffer. December 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lids Off With Ease The JarKey is so clever and well designed. Similar to using a bottle opener, just a little lift and the lid pops and unscrews with ease. I wouldn't have believe it could be so simple yet effective. Great invention! November 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most amazing contraption! This little tool is amazing! You will no longer have to struggle to get those tight lids off your jelly and pickle jars. Just pry up lightly on the lid with the JarKey, the seal will release, and you'll easily be able to remove the lid. I have bought one of these for many of my friends and relatives--and everyone loves it! I recently took one to a church function (we were making massive amounts of tartar sauce for a Fish Fry and had many caper and pimento jars to open) and I got my shopping order for my next trip to The Container Store from everyone who wanted one. April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best choice The containers always provide the convenience and best products for family usage, March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Surprisingly useful The JarKey works every time and makes opening a new jar easy even for someone with arthritic hands. February 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Like a Charm The JarKey works as advertised. It is rather like a can opener but fits under the lid to pop the suction. November 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic invention The jar key is the best product I've ever used. It works every time. October 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by An unexpected surprise I bought this product fully expecting to take it back. I figured it would never be able to open those pesky air-tight jars easily. Was I wrong! The Jarkey popped the seal instantly, and with no effort at all. I will be buying one of these for all my friends and relatives! October 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect tool Great tool for breaking the seal on jar lids. Easy to use. Doesn't damage lid. Makes opening new jars a breeze. Everyone should have one. Period. September 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Every kitchen should have one! The easiest way to open a jar just use the JarKey. Purchased mine years ago and would not be without this tool in my kitchen. I have searched for this to buy for friends, finally found it at of course the Container Store. Wish there was one closer to home, Central NY. July 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by It works! This is the best money I've ever spent. This little thing is easy to use and magical, put simply: IT WORKS! It makes it so I can open any size jar without any difficulty. I used to have to ask others to open all jars for me and now with this little gizmo, I can open all jars so easily. I love it and I highly recommend it. Every kitchen should have one. May 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why Did I Wait? Don't know why I waited so long to buy this little gem. It opens cans in a snap. Gave one to everyone I know as stocking stuffers at Christmas. Even the young ones in their 20's who don't have stiff hands loved it! April 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by JUST WHAT I NEEDED I have been looking for something to help me open jars. Before the jar key, I was using a knife to pry off the lid or break the vacuum seal on bottles. Now so much better w/the jar key. March 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Gadget Ever for the over 50 crowd Who would ever believe such a device would work? But it does with little to no effort. I have arthritis and have a very difficult and frustrating time opening jars. Over the years i have purchased numerous gadgets to assist. Honestly, now that I have the JarKey I've purchased the last jar opener I'll ever need. I'll keep my man, however, for the one percent of jars that come with lids that are the wrong shape for the JarKey to hook on to. March 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Invention I was amazed how well the Jarkey worked! I plan to buy more to give as gifts. February 14, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Didn't work for me Works on standard size lids that "pop", but most of the things I needed to open are wide mouth jars that are plastic. Good idea for someone who has jelly jars and the like to open. January 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck Norris in my kitchen! My clandestine affair with Chuck Norris started about 3 years ago. Frankly, this was an impulse buy. For the price, I thought, well, it might work, if not I can toss it. That was the day that silent, strong man came to live at my house. No more waiting until my husband was free to open a jar or bottle for me. I just whip Chuck out of his drawer, apply him to the recalcitrant lid and carry on. This year, I bought four of the darlings, one wonderful Mother-in-law and three so-so sisters-in-law. Hey, stop throwing things!! Okay, they are okay, too. Seriously, of all the "gadgets" in my kitchen, this is the one I would fight you for. December 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best jar opener gadget for $4.99 only I usually get men with bigger hands to open jars for me. I'm at a loss without one. However, this morning there was none and I needed to open a big new jar of pickles for a recipe I was cooking. I was going to return this to the store, so I thought I might as well try this. I did and presto, just like the description says, the air came out of the jar and I could actually turn turn the jar lid. Am buying these for my family and friends. August 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Handy Product I purchased these several years ago for myself and as stocking stuffer gifts. They are simple to use and they really work. Durable too. April 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Makes life a little easier This is the best purchase you can make for under $5.00. No more twisting, pleading, banging, stabbing with a knife, supreme effort of trying to open a stubborn jar. This little gadget just lifts and pops and helps open a jar with very little frustration. It also allows you to reuse the lid when ready to put the jar away. BEST INVENTION EVER!! I work with Senior Citizens and hope to use this Jarkey to make their lives a little better by purchasing one for each of them. The inventor will not receive the Nobel Peace Prize but is a winner in my heart. Thank you! April 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by SO handy I bought one for myself (I had always used a little cheapy can opener to pop the seal on jars.), then bought them for my parents and in-laws, who are in their seventies. My mother-in-law is no longer banging her jars on her kitchen floor to pop the seal! March 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just as it says, it breaks the vacuum for easy opening. Very handy. March 22, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by JarKey I have osteoarthritis in my hands and it limits the amount of tuning I can do. It is expected to get worse. The jar key allows me to get the lids off various jars without waiting for my husband to get home. I have more independence with it. December 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase This little tool works like a charm and saves me lots for wrestling with the jars! November 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by JarPop These are so wonderful. Works on almost every size jar. Small price for a big helper. Doesn't take up much drawer space and the color is easy to find, if you have a jumbled drawer. November 12, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by So simple - so wonderful I bought one of these as one brand of sauce I buy must have the lids applied with the force of a 600 pound gorilla. I used to beat on the lid, put it in hot water, use a normal leverage open and it was a struggle. This you just put it on the lid and apply just enough lift to break the vacuum - it opens with two fingers now! Amazing and so simple. February 2, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Where have you been all my life? Incredibly easy to use and handy. Great for carpal tunnel. January 23, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product Makes opening jars a breeze. I have given many of these as gits and everyone loves how easy they are to use December 27, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works like magic Once I used this, I gave this to everyone I know. You will never need another tool for removing difficult lids. This tool is amazing. December 12, 2010
