Do you think a jar opener can be a nice gift to give to your loved ones for any occasion – be it wedding, birthday, Christmas, Mother’s or Father’s Day, or even anniversary?

I do think so. It’s because a jar opener is a gift that for sure will be used. And the more the gift is used, the more frequent the giver is remembered with gratitude.

So, there is only one thing left to do – find a good jar opener – one that really can open a jar without much effort and will last. And it will be great if it looks good, because it’s going to be a gift after all.

Keeping in mind these criteria – a functional, lasting and well designed jar opener – this jar opener gift guide will supply you with some ideas.

1) Black & Decker Lids Off JW 275 electric jar opener

Sure thing – Lids Off makes an impressive gift. It is quite expensive though, and comes with only a 1-year warranty. 

If you want to see it in action – check out video on this page.



2) RoboTwist automatic jar opener (as seen on TV)

f the first suggestion is too expensive for you, but you still would like to go with a hands free automatic jar opener – then get the RoboTwist from the Hammacher Schlemmer website.

Why do I recommend Hammacher Schlemmer site over Amazon in this instance? It is because Hammacher Schlemmer has a lifetime guarantee on all items it sells. If you buy RoboTwist in other places – the warranty is only good for 1 year. By the way the word RoboTwist is not written on Hammacher Schlemmer website’s description, but on the image of the jar opener if you hover and click to magnify, and then click again to zoom –you can see written clearly: RoboTwist.

In case you do not care about the warranty and need to get a jar opener delivered rather quickly and for free because you have Amazon Prime – then get RoboTwist from Amazon.

 A word of caution. If you decide to buy another automatic jar opener on Amazon based on hundreds of 5 star reviews – please be aware that sometimes for automated battery operated jar openers customer reviews do not match the product listed for sale. Please, read my in depth article on this issue. It is especially important if you are gifting a jar opener to somebody , because your loved ones might get a piece of junk if you would rely only on 5 stars near the product name without actually checking that reviews match the product.
