It really works”
by P Evans
This is a great kitchen tool. It releases the vacuum on jars with very little effort and the lids then unscrew easily. So useful if your hands are not very strong. It is also perfect for loosening the lids of the screw band type of preserving jar. Just remove the screw band and gently lever the lid with the Jarkey.

No more wrestling with those jars!”
No kitchen should be without one of these, it's brilliant! Even the tightest of jars open with ease, can't recommend it enough!

makes the impossible possible”
Best invention out. Manufacturers make products in jars so difficult to get into regardless of your age, one little click and a little popping sound and lo and behold you can get at your food. Highly recommend this product, we use it all the time. Money well spent.

After nearly smashing a jar on the floor with frustration at not being able to open it my mum suggested i get a jarkey. They work every time, and the lid can be re-screwed on afterwards if you don't use the whole jar. I wouldn't be without it.

What I thought would be a short term gimmick, has proved so wrong ! One of those products every home should have, the stress free opening of all the jars tried so far - foolproof .

So easy to use. Wish it had been available earlier. No more struggling to open jars.

Simple and perfect”

I've had mine for years and no jar has ever defeated it. It has to be the most perfect, underrated product ever made.

jarkey - dexterity”
by Mrs Trisha Otterwell
Having very little strength in my hands I have found this amazing little gadget the best jar opener ever. No need to use the whole of your hand just one quick lift and the jar can be easily opened. In fact my brother was so impressed he has asked me to send him one, he lives in Germany and his wife has the same sorts of problems.

found to be more useful than the pricey culinaire opener

You NEED one!”
We seriously wouldn't be without our Jarkey. A quick flick under the rim and the seal is broken. Jars seem to be getting tougher and tougher to open and this makes light work of it. Essential purchase!

Lovely little helper!”
by Sasha Lubetkin
I'd be lost without my Jarkey. I'm just about to order one as a stocking filler for a friend. In fact, come to think of it, I think I'll order a few more at the same time. Everyone should have a Jarkey.

Essential kitchen tool!”
I bought a Jarkey some time ago and haven't had any trouble opening any jar since! I couldn't believe how easy it was to use. The Jarkey is definitely one tool that is a must in every kitchen that has troublesome jars! I will buy another one when my current Jarkey wears out (which will be a long long time from now)

I purchased one of these in Copenhagen at least 15 years ago and it is now becoming worn out, but I hadn't seen any and couldn't return to Copenhagen to get another. I'm now ordering four for myself and friends who are often enarmored with my "finds" from Lakelands. (Precisions on request).

So small yet so useful”
by Mrs Cole
I have been meaning to praise this product for some time - it is one of the most unassuming, yet useful kitchen tools I have bought! My husband and I (both of us under 40) used to struggle to take the lid off our favourite jar of olives, which was almost impossible to remove - to the point where we were about to stop buying them in protest...then as a last thought, I bought a Jarkey - and it effortlessly opened the jar (and every one since), ending our problems. Small, tough and very handy! Highly recommended.

A must in any kitchen”
I am not old but I often find it hard to open jars, so much so that I have had to resort to piercing the lid with a knife before to release the vacuum so that I could open the jar at last! Well no more: these JarKeys are wonderful. They couldn't be any easier to use and they enable you to open jars in no time and without effort. My only regret is that I didn't buy one sooner.

The best gadget I ever bought”
by Rosemarie Strugnell
This is by far the best gadget I ever bought, I too have white ones( one at home and one in the caravan) and I have bought several for friends. We all marvel at the simplicity of this little gadget that is in constant use. I have a friend who is 90 and she I got her one last Christmas, she cant thank you enough as she was never able to get the tops off her favourite marmalade. Now she enjoys it every morning.

Jars opened easily!”
by Katie Fraser
How would I live without this gadget? Great as sometimes I have trouble opening jars, and great for when you feel weak! Also it's a must have product that everyone with disabilties recommends.

Fantastic little product. I have one myself and have bought many more to make life easier for my friends and family. So easy to use and works every time.
