We discovered a simple gadget that opens jars with a twist of the wrist! We like the EZ Off opener so much we have one in our home kitchen as well as installing one in our camper.
The opener takes up next to no space, disappearing underneath your cabinet, sitting there ready to open a tight lid. No fumbling for a pair of Channellock pliers or other types of jar opening tools, or hurting your hands working to twist open a jar of pickles. I even used it to gently twist out a wine cork that was pushed in after opening the bottle.
There are no moving parts and the installation is done by simply using the peel-and-stick adhesive, and then screwing the 3 screws into the underside of your overhead cabinet, or anyplace deemed easy to reach. The teeth that grip the jar lid are sharp, so keep out of the reach of young children, though it is easy enough for a child to use.
Any size jar lid will fit with no parts to adjust. Simply slide the lid into the opener until you feel a secure grip, twist and voila, your jar is open.
I spoke with the makers of this handy gizmo and was happy to learn the EZ Off is made in the U.S.A. by a small mom and pop type business. The “V” shaped opening concept has been around for 60 years, with EZ Off improving the design. Here is a fun link to one of the vintage predecessors.
We give this dandy tool as a practical gift and all recipients have been delighted. Get yours at our affiliate link to save yourself space and hassle in your camper as well as your shop or kitchen at home.
