This was my mother-in-laws jar and bottle opener. Its called the Top-off, and it was made in Burlington, Vt. My husband and I inherited it when his mom died. No jar is too tight for this gadget! And, it doesnt take a big twist either. It is especially useful now that our hand strength isnt what it used to be.
I looked for something like it and found a company that makes a similar product, and I ordered one for each of our three sons. Its not the prettiest item in the drawer, but it certainly is my favorite. Sometimes, you can find one of these at an antique store. My advice is to grab one, if you can.
