It is a unique invention for those of us with hands and wrists that no longer work as they should. I praise and thank the inventor.
This is absolutely the best gift you can get for anyone with problems opening cans. This is great for grandparents. I would really recommend this item.
Bought this for my mom who is older and has trouble opening jars and also for my mom-in-law who has carpotunnel.
I have arthritis in my hands. So, opening cans and bottles is very hard and painful. This dual opener is almost perfect. The can opener’s cutter comes off very easy for cleaning. The jar opener works very well. Cons: the jar opener does not work on all jars. It the top of the jar is a bit unusual or too tall, it will not open.

It words well but it’s awfully big on the kitchen counter.
I have for the first time in years been able to open jars, but myself with out the aid of another person. Can opener works just as easy, and the combination gives you a great deal. I have lost many of the joints in both hands, and it was impossible to open any cans or jars when i was home alone, and trying to prepare meals ahead of time. Most people do not read the instructions, in order to get the proper use of the machine. The machine is 9-1/2 inches tall and 9-1/2 inches tall, and for the work and pain it saves me if is worth giving up the counter space. (i was able to get rid of two can-openers i had a hard time using). Please read the instruction, before using and you will really get great use out of this product.
I cannot tell you how this product has made a difference in my life. I was having such a time getting jars open. When i broke my right arm, i was really in a predicament. A friend loaned me her black & decker lids-off jar and can opener and i was back in business. You can bet that i ordered one immediately and have loved it ever since. The only sad news is the big jars at cost co do not fit in it, but everything else does. It is a miracle for those with arthritis, handicaps, seniors, etc.
My only complaint is that many jars are taller than this opener allows for. If the height could be adjusted more i would rate this at 5 stars.
I got this because my wife has problems opening anything due to an injury in her hand. I thought it was going to save me from opening every single item in the house. It does that when i am not home, otherwise, i am still the jar opener. It works as expected and i can’t complain about it really. It came recommended by our hand surgeon and that is why we got it. Only complaints is that it doesn’t work on very small tops but they do have to be very small. Overall, a good product if i could get my wife to use it when i am around.
We have had this for over a year and it stills works great with no adjustments needed. I would recommend this to my friend.
I have had this for probably 15 years, my husband got one for me, my mother and grandmother. It was not this expensive when it first came out, and so glad i didn’t have to pay this much. My husband worked for a lumber and hardware store and got it for like 65 dollars. I would hate to have to replace it at the cost it is now. I have not had any problems with mine at all, and it does raise to open taller jars. The only draw back is it is hard to lock in the up position, and sometimes the can opener part comes off with the lid, but easily put back in place. I was looking for a black one to match all of my other appliances, but apparently it does not come in black. The price was a draw back for me, even if they had it in black.
Since i have athritis in my hands, i have found it difficult to open jars and cans, but there is really no effort or pain involved when i need to open anything now. It is also an attractive addition to my kitchen.
Black and decker you have given me my independence with this lids-off open-it-all center. What a great tool for us folks with arthritis. I could have used this when i was younger to open tight lids.
I haven’t found a jar that this thing won’t open; it even handles those vacuum sealed fruit jars like they’re nothing. If i have a complaint, and it’s a minor one, you have to be careful with the can opener lever. The lever comes off for cleaning which is nice but it also comes off easily if you have it up. It goes back in easy enough but it’s a bit annoying.
I bought this back in 2006 for my mom. She is a neat freak and never leaves any appliances on the counters despite her fairly large kitchen. This has been on the counter for 12 years. 99 for it back then and i’m seriously contemplating buying one for my mother in law for the low, low price of nearly $300 now that it’s been discontinued for many years and becoming even more difficult to find. A used one goes for well over $100 now which dumbfounds me as it should have never been discontinued in the first place.
It work good for jars with arthritic hands but not so well on cans. The cans must be short to use the can opener. For opening jars, it is excellent.
I like how easy it is to get a lid off a jar.
Product was delivered in time for mother’s day. My mother-in-law loves it and uses it all the time. Was great to find, beings i couldn’t find it in our local stores.
The primary reason for choosing this product was for the jar opening feature which works great. The can opener can be a bit tricky it trying to engage the can you are trying to open. I have to make several attemps befor i am sucessful,then when i disengage the lid, the cutting unit detaches from the opener.
I have carpal tunnel in my wrist and arthritisin my shoulder. This item provides the help opening any kindof jar, any size. Adjust to the different sizes beautifully. Not to mention the hand can opener that pleases the cat.
Black & decker jw400 lids off open-it-all centergood product. Gotta be very careful how you use it. The can opener control will come off in your hands (designed for easy cleaning) and the jar opener requires exact centering of the jar or crunch no jar. Once you learn how to use it, it works very well, especially for those who have little strength in their arm(s) like my wife (result of a stroke). Recommended only if you have the patience to learn to use it properly (which is easy to do) and then use it properly. I wouldn’t hestitate to buy another for a gift or even for myself.
It took quite a while to receive this item as they didn’t tell me it was on back order untill after i made the purchase??. They stated the item was available??. I saw it advertised cheaper while i was waiting for it. I tried to contact them about honoring the lower price(the lower price was on the sellers site) they would not honor their own lower price or even respond to my attempts to contact them??.I am pleased with the item but very unhappy with the purchasing experience.
