      Disagree on his assessment that a jar opener needs different products for different sizes. A strap wrench is already the ideal jar opener.

    I feel like the jar opener should've been compared against a square of shelf liner or a rubber kitchen glove.

        You cant oil the jar opener just cause you're doing an oil test. Smh*

            I had bought one of those can openers. It is completely unreliable. Sometimes it would get stuck trying to open the can or does not stop automatically. More than 65% of the time it would fail for some reason.

                    The walnut cracker was dumb they’re about the same. You stopped the timer when the walnut was partially out on the left and the right stopped the timer when it was completely out.

                                                    i uh...dont mean to be rude...but i can crack a dozen eggs by hand in about 12 seconds, add 1 second per egg if i need to separate yolk from white...but then...i used to make a living cooking food when i was going to college...

                                                      Wouldn't the eggcracker be of use to people with shaky hands? From the way he cracked that egg by hand and breaking the yolk he would be better off using that thing himself.

                                                        That is a reaallly bad can opener. My grandma has one this is like a belt so you can custom fit it to any lid and then let it rip like a beyblade. It helps her cause she doesn't have much of any grip strength.

I find it much easier to use the grip pads (made out of the same stuff that anti-slip mats I think) that I have had since I first moved out of home around 20 years ago if the jars are being a pain in the rear to open - for jars that are being particularly troublesome, running hot water over the lid helps too. I do need to find where to buy them these days as the ones I have are getting a bit worse for wear. :\

                                                                        Opening a jar would be next to impossible with oily hands, yet hard but possible with the tool. (I agree that the tool was badly designed, though)

It works 95% of the time with no problems
