Easy-Open Jars

Jar lids that seldom stick.
  [vote for,

A handy tip for opening stuck jar lids is to put a rubber band around the lid and the added grip lets you open it.

So why not just make the lids with a rubber edge so that they shouldn't be too hard to open in the first place?

       translate DrC - the idea is excellent, cannot find anything baked or half-baked so nitpick on the title.   

       I agree with the hotdoc, it should be 'even a girl can open this jar lid'. +1 neat idea.

       This is, quite frankly, mega.

       Is that synonomous with "condom cohabitator" [waugs]?

       It was a common name for those rubber jar openers.

       Not just rubber; the lid should have a countoured grip.   

       If a jar lid's stuck on through a vacuum, I get out the centre-punch and a pin hammer. <pfffffft> And then I reseal the small hole with a bit of tape.

       MFY, you should post that as a separate idea, then use it to make the annos read in the opposite sense to the votes. That'd confuse 'em.
