Kuhn Rikon Polka Dot 5-1 Jar Opener
Was disappointed to see it made from cheap plastic. It has, however, worked on the few jars I have opened. I did find you have to tighten the opener fairly tight or it slips and won't open the jar. My concern is that after repeated uses the plastic will break. I am keeping the product and was considering getting one for my elderly mother, but due to the cheap construction I will not get another one.
Wonderful little gizmo!!!
I was lukewarm about the usefulness of this whimsically polkadotted little 5-in-1 opening tool . . . . . . but now I cannot imagine life without it! In this day when jar lids seem to be secured by 2-ton robots, and even plastic water bottles, made thinner and thinner, have little plastic caps secured so tightly that it takes a power-lifting strongman to open (and I don't happen to have one of those around the home), it had become a real problem for a 73-year-old woman with waning strength to get the tops off the things I wanted to access. This little opener makes it like child's play, can get those pesky water-bottle caps open with two fingers and no effort. YAYYYYYYY! Life is so much easier using the Kuhn Rikon jar opener.
Always Outstanding from MarkCharles
Another wonder from Mark Charles and Kuhn Rikon. I have arthritis in the hands and this makes life so easy and makes me happy. It works perfectly and is adorable to look at. I bought the green polka dot and it's very eye catching. Keep it up MCM. You rock!!!
It really works
I sometimes have trouble opening jars and I don't always have someone here to help me. I ordered this in purple and when it arrived I was a bit surprised at how large it is, but it fits in the drawer, so its not an issue. I have to admit I kept forgetting I had it, until I got smart and started leaving it on the counter for a few days.
I can open small bottles and great big jars that you get at the warehouse stores. I am very happy with this product and I think its kind of cute with the purple and white polka dots. It sure has made my time in the kitchen easier.
I ordered two, one for me and my 85 yr old mother. She is now able to open ANYTHING! So easy to use and the colors are bright and cheerful.
Best Kitchen Gadget
I love this jar opener! I've owned it for two years--not coincidentally, that's the last time my husband had to open a jar for me. I've given one to my sisters and all my girlfriends!
Does not work
I just received this in the mail and tried it last night. It does not work. Returning it
Every home needs one. I can't function without this item. You will be so surprised to see all the items this can open. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
I just saw this on air with David and Mark and realized that I never put a review in. I have had mine since July 2013. It is fantastic and I couldn't be without it. I have trouble with my fingers and hands, so I use this all the time and it is holding up like new.It functions just like shown in the presentation. Do not hesitate to purchase this. I highly recommend it.
Love it .makes it so easy to open jars .would recommend to any one has no hand strength.
I can recommend this outstanding product without hesitation. It has opened all kinds of jar tops in my kitchen, the ones that wouldn't even budge without it. I would especially recommend this product for elderly parents or friends who have decreased strength in their hands due to arthritis. I love this for opening my non-dairy creamer which was always difficult before. I just need to ensure the device is open wide enough to close back down for a tight grip. This product is amazing and takes no strength at all to achieve results.
I was really having trouble opening different kinds of jars etc. This opener is the answer to my problem. So easy to use!!
