    Unfortunately, I don't think they would if it was. It doesn't come with a name brand, 'bling' or in 8 fashionable colors.

    Hard to come by, I'm sure. I've never minded hubby wanting guy time...or whatever time he wanted/needed. Matter of fact, he's spending the weekend away this weekend.

    theres actually an obvious science to opening tight objects, the grip the whole top and twist method is counter productive because the clamping force required by the hand to grip makes the force needed to twist that much harder... its best to brace the object in one hand and twist with the other but while pushing against it in the direct opposite direction with your palm to ensure more of the force goes towards twisting instead of gripping.

    h-h-h-hoiven!

    Or in sever cases, when the jar's lid won't budge, take a knife, stick it up between jar&lid, apply a bit of pressure wait until it makes a sound and voila, jar can be opened.

    My mom thought that by hitting the lid from the side, with the butt end of a knife or something, in the direction it needed to twist would break the seal and allow for easy opening.

    I tried this many times, but all I ended up with was a massacred lid that didn't open.

    I haven't tried @GaLaTeA 's method, but I sho nuff will if ever 'stuck', lol

    Yeah, no bueno. There's another way to going about this "method", no knife involved though ~ to hit the bottom of a jar a few times with your palm.

    I've seen people making small holes in lids before so that the pressure would be evened out and easy to get it opened, however I wouldn't recommend it.

    Yes, I've seen people hit the bottom with their palms as well. Hit and miss, me thinks (no pun).

    I would never put a hole in the lid, unless I planned to use the entire contents at that time.

    Agreed, it depends on how thick the bottom of the jar is, amongst a few other things.

    In times when I pickled vegetables, I had a giant plastic "cup" looking thingy that would grip the lid and either seal it shut or open it with a single turn.
