As Seen On TV: The One Touch Jar Opener

Remember the One Touch Can Opener?

Now there's a One Touch for jars, and I recently put it to the test.

The One Touch Jar Opener is supposed to be able to open jar lids anywhere from an inch and a half to four inches wide. I gathered up three jars that pretty much cross the spectrum.

I started with a 1.5-inch taco sauce jar. When you activate the One Touch, the upper part, which has rubber grips, holds the jar in place. Another set of grips automatically compresses to the size of the jar lid. It then spins around, loosening the lid.

The One Touch was able to easily grip and loosen the lid on the taco sauce.

Next I tried the old jelly jar, which is always one of mom's favorites.

I soon heard the lid “pop” and knew that the One Touch was once again successful.

But how would the One Touch do against the Matterhorn of kitchen jars: the pickle jar?

Let’s just say I was soon enjoying a delicious pickle!

I must say I am thoroughly impressed with the One Touch.

I like it a lot better than the One Touch Can Opener which, if you recall, I had a little bit of trouble with. This one was very easy to use.

My only regret about this is that there will be one less chore in the house for real he-men.

The One Touch Jar Opener gets a hearty thumbs up.

The One Touch Jar Opener costs about 20 dollars, and runs on two AA batteries -- sold separately. I bought mine at Walgreens, but they can be found at a number of online stores.

You can find more information on the opener at the One Touch website,

Next week, things are going to the dogs.

We'll be testing the "Deluxe Doggy Steps.”

Do they help decrepit and diminutive doggies step easily to new heights?

Find out next Monday at 11:00 p.m.
