I love kitchen gadgets and I admit I buy gadgets that are more fun than necessary. How many times have I gone through my kitchen drawers to find those coveted gadgets sitting there and never used. When I was diagnosed with severe arthritis in my thumb last year I decided that there was nothing wrong with looking for tools which would make my life easier. I found a couple of tools I would like to share with you.
The Swing a Way Comfort Jar opener has notches along one side which you can adjust to the size of the jar or item you want to open. You squeeze it and then turn the lid to open. It works very well and I have to say is very easy on the thumb. It does not feel like I am opening a tight item. the black rubber part which is suppose to act as a grip so your thumb is not holding onto the metal piece does move up an down. Though it does not affect the action of the opener. At just under $10.00 it is well worth the price.
