JarKey is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Invention I was amazed how well the Jarkey worked! I plan to buy more to give as gifts.
Date published: 2013-02-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as it says, it breaks the vacuum for easy opening. Very handy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effortless If you have reduced strength in your hands or just want to make life easier, this is the product for you! I also bought some for stocking stuffers for the women and "seasoned" citizens in my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jarpop is Awesome! I don't know why I didn't know about this little gizmo earlier. It's awesome! I used to strain and hurt my hand trying to open a jar and sometimes still couldn't get it open and had to wait till later in the day when my boyfriend came home for help! With my jarpop I was able to open a jar in seconds with no trouble at all. It's fun to use and I'm still amazed each time I use it.
