Explorers Examine A New Jar Opener
Listen to the Audio: Explorers Examine A New Jar Opener
from: Longevity Explorers | Sequoias SF, SF Village
Longevity Explorers discuss and explore a newly invented type of jar opener. Since many have difficulty gripping and opening jars, the group showed interest in trying out a prototype jar opener.
As they handed it around tried it out, some of the comments were:
- Really clever - you don't have to hold the jar.
- Cumbersome, may cause spills
- It came apart - Too complicated
- Opens reasonably small, but not very small sized jars.
- Loosens, but does not remove lids
- Slips on some lids, perhaps better for one-handed use
- Needs clear instructions
The group consensus is that it is a clever device, but will benefit from some design refinements.
Members go on to describe their usual and customary methods of opening jars.
