No matter how much you enjoy cooking, arthritis and mobility issues can turn the once-beloved activity into a taxing process. An impact-absorbing kitchen mat is a great solution for lower body pain, but achy hands and arms are another concern.
If tightly-sealed jars are the bane of your culinary existence, the Sinceller Electric Jar Opener could be exactly what you need. It twists off even the most stubborn lids with the push of a button, so it's tailor-made for those with arthritis or weak hands. The tool automatically adjusts to fit lids from 1.2 to 3.5 inches in diameter, and it clocks in at under a pound, which makes it easy to remove once it's done its job. Shoppers say the jar opener is the one item "every kitchen should have," and it's only $26.

All it takes is two AA batteries to power up the device. Hundreds of reviewers have used it to transform the way they cook, and they have no plans of going back. "I absolutely love this thing," one wrote. "I have arthritis in my hands, making opening jars impossible, but this has done the trick. Now I can open any jar with ease."
"Let me tell you, I have no idea what I did before having this device," said another shopper who gave it a five-star rating. "I love it. Everything that I struggled with before is no match."
Reviewers also say the jar opener is a great option for seniors. "My mom had two shoulder surgeries and lives alone. She stopped buying jars because she couldn't open them," one wrote. "I really didn't expect this to go over as great as it did. She got it at Christmas and is still texting me weekly about how much she loves it."
The Sinceller Electric Jar Opener is available on Amazon now. It's bound to provide serious relief from the moment you get your hands on it—pun intended.
