Having always been the man of the house, difficult jars have always been passed in my direction for opening. No complaints here, but being left handed and suffering irreversible nerve damage that affects my fine motor skills of my left hand, I find that I have to struggle at a task that was once so simple for me. The **OXO Good Grips Jar Opener** provides me with the ideal tool to open virtually any bottle or jar since by its design, no fine motor skills are needed. Ease of Cleaning The **OXO Good Grips Jar Opener** seldom needs cleaning, but when it does it can be easily rinsed or when really messy be safely washed in the dishwasher. Durability The simple design of the **OXO Good Grips Jar Opener** and the typical OXO quality of construction make this an extremely durable gadget. And, in the event that you can find a way to destroy it, the **OXO Good Grips Jar Opener** is covered by OXO's Lifetime Warranty. Design Like most OXO cooking tools, the **OXO Good Grips Jar Opener** is exquisite in its simplicity. This 8.5" opener features the usual comfort grip that connects to the graduated toothed "V" that grips jar lids up to about 4" in diameter. Once gripped, all that's needed is a bit of hand torque in a counter clockwise direction. I find that as long as my right hand (the one holding the jar) is dry, I can easily open any jar with a minimum of effort. Even better, I've convinced my wife and daughter that they can too!
