This handy under the cabinet jar opener is an 'absolute game changer' for your kitchen — grab it for $11

In a world full of affordable little treats, this niche kitchen gadget solves one of life's most annoying problems. The great thing is that you can get this baby for less than a Chipotle bowl without guac. Amazon shoppers just found another clever kitchen hack in the form of the EZ Off Jar Opener, and it does exactly what you'd expect: opens your jars easily so you don't have to struggle. The best part? You can grab it for just over $10 right now — that's 46% off.

The teeth of the jar opener are coated with zinc to prevent any rusting.

Why is this a good deal?

First off, it's fair to say that anything marked down by almost 50% off is a good deal. You're also saving $9, taking the price from $20 to $11 — and $11 just sounds so much better than $20. Beyond the discounted price, you're saving so much time and energy with the EZ Off Jar Opener. Instead of attempting to open a vacuum-sealed jar for what feels like forever and breaking a sweat, you're basically buying back that time.

Why do I need this?

Here's the deal: Made specifically for seniors and those with weak hands or arthritis, the EZ Off Jar Opener works like an extra strong, extra sharp vice grip to easily open stubborn jars. Think of it like Captain America being your own personal jar opener. All you need to do is insert the jar into the opener, making sure that the jar is caught on the metal teeth. With both hands, give it a twist to get the lid off.

The assembly instructions are also really simple. First, remove the adhesive covering. Then pick a place underneath a cabinet in your kitchen and stick the gadget right on it. It's ready in seconds and takes up very little space in the kitchen. You'll hardly notice it. It also comes with optional screws if you want extra-secure installation.

What reviewers say

Amazon reviewers are seriously obsessed with this handy jar opener, giving the EZ Off Jar Opener an overall rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars — which includes more than 21,000 five-star ratings.

"I got so tired of the twist things you find at in the kitchen sections of stores. My 90-year-old father has arthritis and couldn’t open anything that wasn’t easy to twist off," explains one five-star Amazon reviewer. "This item is genius! It will open even the tightest jar, bottle, etc. love it!"

"Came with adherent so I could hold it up under my cabinet while it was being screwed in. It is very stable. My fingers no longer work well with arthritis and jars were becoming a real problem to open. This works really well. Under the cabinet I have chest level hold and can use both hands to push open the jar. I have those that you must grip with one hand but this allows both hands for pressure and I can accomplish more. It works well for me"

"This is an interesting product. I'm a senior citizen with bad arthritis which makes opening any jar very difficult if not impossible. I live in an apartment so can't mar the cupboards by installing any product that would show," writes one reviewer who struggles with hard-to-open jars. "Took me a couple of tries to get the hang of it (which is the only reason I gave it four stars) but since then it's a no brainer! So glad someone came up with this idea."

"These are fabulous, and I have bought two more as gifts. They will open any kind of screw-top jar or bottle easily," writes a final reviewer. However, they do go on to warn about the installation process. "The instructions say to install it the wrong way! The VEE needs to point INTO the room, instead of toward the back wall. Luckily, I read a few reviews that mentioned this, so I installed it the correct way."

Just be careful of the sharp teeth when wedging a jar into this gadget.
