The Oxo Good Grips jar opener features a base pad and stainless steel teeth for durability. The opener allows you to effortlessly open any jars. The teeth will grip lids firmly while the soft non-slip handle cushions your hand and absorbs pressure. Its innovative base pad reduces the force required to open a jar by keeping the jar securely on your counter top. To use, simply put the base pad below the jar, slide the jar opener over the lid and then twist counter clockwise.
