Under Counter EZ Off Jar Opener Review
Hello and welcome to my Under Counter EZ Off Jar Opener Review page.
You may have heard of this popular tool, Under Counter EZ off Jar Opener and wondering if it’s as good as it claims to be. I have done research on this opener and will discuss the pros and cons here and give you my frank opinion.
Before I go into that, here’s a little information about the product itself. The Original patented product EZ Off is made of tough plastic with a simple concept measuring 8 x 9 x 1 inches and weighs 5 ounces. It comes with peel-and-stick adhesive tape for easy installation in under 5 minutes. It’s durable and is used not only in kitchens and offices but also in hospital operating rooms, dental labs and commercial kitchens too.
Pros of the EZ Off Jar opener
It’s extremely popular among people who are suffering from arthritis and have difficulty opening jars with their hands because of the pain in their finger joints that restrict their movement. With the EZ off jar opener, small and large jars can be opened with ease (of course you still need to use some strength) without putting stress on your joints. You can either do it with one hand or holding the jar with both hands.
Users of this opener has feedback that it opens everything that they tried as mentioned in the product’s listing, jars, nail polish and even plastic caps!
The Under Counter EZ Off Jar Opener is meant to be mounted under the counter and out of sight but within reach for easy opening of jars. It comes with a sticky tape and some just stick under their counter. This unit comes with 3 screws and they are meant to secure your opener under the counter but many have skip this part altogether although the securing with screws is going to take you a couple minutes at most. So don’t complain if your EZ Off Jar Opener comes off while you are using it if you didn’t secure it properly.
Some notes on installation:
It’s low profile and easily installed under a counter/cabinet as it is meant to and out of sight. However, you may want to install it backwards so that the teeth do not face you. It doesn’t make a difference really since it’s so easy to use and aligns with cap of the jar easily and you only need to feel to know that it’s in place.
The EZ Off Jar opener comes with saw teeth on side to grip the cap of the jar you are trying to open and you can see them in the picture here too. The teeth are designed in such a way that you cannot accidentally tighten the lid of the jar instead of opening it because turning the jar in the wrong direction will cause it to slip.
Cons of the EZ Off Jar opener
The teeth are sharp are sharp and could cut you if you are careless but that has yet to be reported so far. It can and will damage some lids that it opens leaving marks, dents and jagged edges but that is only usually the case on the tightest lids.
This is part of the product’s design and cannot really be faulted for it. You have to accept it or opt for a different product altogether.
In conclusion, all in all, the Under Counter EZ Off Jar Opener is a great tool in the kitchen, not only for yourself and also as gifts for others too. I am sure the recipients of this gift is going to thank you for it.
