We’ve all been there before. Our meal is just about done but we need that final item or condiment to top off the plate. After searching the top shelf, we finally find that jar of pickles or cherries or sauce we were looking for.

Now comes the challenge: opening it. For some reason unbeknownst to me, it always feels as if Superman was the last to tighten the jar in question. Whatever I try never seems to work. Banging on the lid, or trying to squeeze a can opener under the lid. I’ve even tried running jars under warm water to see if that would loosen it.

But those days are finally over thanks to the RoboTwist. The gadget helps open virtually any jar in just a few seconds. See it in action above.
