      Please review the new ProbioticMaker. I would love to get your take on the ease. Make fresh probiotics with only 1 minute prep and no dirty dishes!!!

      Think outside the box. A better jar opener would be one that relieves the vacuum pressure inside of the jar.
      Jar lids aren't tight because they are screwed on tightly, they are tight because there's a vacuum inside of the jar.
      A much better design would be a jar opener that presses down on the middle and lifts on the edge of the lid, letting air flow in. It will let out a "popping" noise. When you hear that, remove the gadget and your jar can now be opened, even by a frail grandma.

      Disagree on his assessment that a jar opener needs different products for different sizes. A strap wrench is already the ideal jar opener.

                      >Product requires a firm grip on a jar to use
                      >Oils gripping hand
                      >Criticises "too difficult!"

                      Ooookay. Try and open the same jar with just your oiled hands, you pedant.

                          I don't trust electric can openers- I will always prefer using a manual one 😂 also there's other ways to open a jar besides a jar opening device like using a spoon or running it under hot water to release the pressure

                                I would actually buy that egg cracker/separator, I don't know why, but my consistency with cracking eggs is absolutely horrible, and a lot of the times when you need eggs separated you need like 5.

                                But I would try to change the design so you can also pick up eggs with that thing just to add the speed

                                    I have the lid opener (I have fibromyalgia) and while mine seems to have better rubber because it actually grips to the lid, it's only truly effective with the biggest hole because the further down you go the less leverage you get with the handle. Wish is annoying to me because it's mostly small lids for bottles and stuff that I need to open. It would be cool if there was a base that you attached different sizes to

                                                  my family actually owns a set of jar openers and they're all separate for each size, like you said. They're a LIFE SAVER when you need it

                                                  (we got them after a VERY frustrating 30 minutes (maybe an hour) of trying to open something with every technique we knew of and in the end had to give up. One of those techniques was whacking the top with a knife, so my hands also got a little sliced up from trying to open it by hand again after employing that technique.) Basically 10/10 would recommend buying a set of properly made jar openers lol

                                                      the jar opened isn’t about speed, it’s about opening it for people who don’t have the strength

                                                        And I think that he mus reversed it, so de L shape of the rubber grab the bottom of the lid not the top, and it will make it stay at place and not as slippery as he's doin

You give it 4-5 good chops with some force and it will be less round but much faster than anything I saw him try here.
