Kitchen Gadget: The JarKey 11/15/10
The JarKey is a must-have gadget if you struggle to open jars. By Roline Bosch
Ladies, maybe you don’t always have a handsome man around to open those airtight jars and containers for you. Men, I’m sure you could do with a break from proving your strength with the gherkins… The JarKey is the perfect, simple little gadget here to help.
The JarKey is a lever-like plastic utensil with a round head that locks onto the jar lid. Instead of turning the object like a can opener, all you do is lift and an air pocket in the centre of the jar lid pops open the glass container. Simple, easy and way better for your hands.
It’s super handy for people with joint difficulties (this is why it was actually invented), so you can buy your gran one for Christmas and score some brownie points.
This clever little thing was available on the market years ago and then it disappeared, but I am happy to say it’s back on the shelves people! So I got myself one and all the female family members I know.
The JarKey retails for about R40 and it is available from Yuppie Chef, Checkers, Pick ‘n Pay, Boardmans and other major household retailers. nationwide.
