    I found a life hack today to tap around the seal of the lid with a wooden spoon to break the seal.... worked like a charm!

    Am I the only one who can't open a pickle jar? Please tell me I'm not! :giggle :duh:groan:hissy

    I've always tapped around it with the handle of a butter knife, but yes...always gives me fits!

    I’ve always hit the lid but that doesn’t even work for me anymore. My daughter gave me this gizmo-sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t!

    I use the same thing that @Cherylndesigns uses . . . it's a round disk of thin rubber and it opens up any jar with ease! I didn't buy mine. It came in a swag bag my hubby got from work so it has his company's logo on it.

    I have the rubber thingy and sometimes tap around the edge, sometimes running hot water over the metal lid helps - the metal expands more and faster than the glass.
    But mostly I make the googley eyes at hubby and hand it over. He opens anything like that very quickly and easily.

    These tools! :giggle It's fun to make him do things for me now... cause he's "strongman." They -hubby or kids - don't possess good eyes for finding things though...

    I have a "punch" can opener and use the pointed tip under the lid's rim to gently break the seal, then I can easily open the jar. Similar to this one, but w/o the bottle opener on the far end.

    I also have the same T'ware pickle container as Courtney, but rarely transfer my pickles into it any more.

    :yesss What is it with that? Like, why can't they find things in front of their face?

    I say way too often: If it was a snake, you'd be dead.

    I had one of those. I said “had” because it’s mysteriously missing now that Aspen moved back to school. :giggle

    Enjoy em while you can. Those boys grow up and move out and get married quicker than you expect. I can’t believe my son has been married for 2 years already.

    I’m the only one in the house who can find things. My mom used to say “ if it was a snake, it would’ve bit ya” :giggle

    I used to have one of those but don’t know what happened to it. Probably one of the kids. :giggle

    This is funny because I've always tapped the edges & opened everything myself. I'm having some elbow issues (tennis elbow- ugh!) and asked my hubby to open the marinara jar last night & he said "Wow, you actually need me! I feel so important!" lol I'm pretty independent & impatient= I never need him for handyman type of stuff! ;) ;)

    I tap it gently on the tiled part of my kitchen wall, if that does not work then I ease the tip of a butter knife ( not sharp ) under the lid and that breaks the air seal.
