Trust Me, a Great Jar & Bottle Opener Will Improve Your Life

We tested every jar and bottle opener to find our favourite. This one is the best all rounder and featured on our TV advert in 2015.

When we first started Spring Chicken we used to sell products, rather than our model now, which is about recommending products. We’d decided that a TV advert would be a great way to let people know what the brand was all about (finding products to improve your life). Our advertising agency came up with the idea of a cartoon chicken showing some of the things we had found. Harry Enfield very kindly voiced the (spring) chicken in the advert.

“They seem to be putting the lids on jars much more tightly these days!”.

Research had told us that one of the greatest frustrations our community was having was opening bottles, jars, and cartons (with plastic lids for pouring juice or milk). Weaker grip, pain in the hands, and tremors all add to the difficulties of getting lids off things. Jar openers, can openers and bottle openers were among the ideas of what to show on the advert. Conscious that we were unlikely to want to animate the TV advert twice, we ordered every single jar-opening gadget that we could find anywhere. The office kitchen looked a bit like a testing lab. My father (who suffers from Parkinson’s and arthritis in his hands- a combination which means jar and bottle openers are much-loved friends) set to work testing every single one of them.

And there was one clear winner. So this is the gadget we had drawn for our cartoon chicken to use. Its shape means it can do openings of different sizes really easily.

I must stress that this gadget will improve your life even if you don’t have any long-term health conditions. I use it often, and my children use it as well. Genuinely good for bottle tops, jam jars, and any other lids screwed on too tightly.

Very easy to use. 4 sizes of circular openings means it works on lids from 1cm to 7.5cm diameter.
