Jar Opener (Vacuum Release)
This jar opener is a great invention! It releases the vacuum suction from jar lids, making it much easier to open the jar with your bare hands. Simply place the circular shape over the side of the jar lid and lift. Once you hear the "pop," the lid will open with ease. A jar twister can also be used (shown below) to twist off the jar lid.
Sometimes jar lids are so stubborn, that no matter how hard you try to twist them open, they won't budge! This twisting style jar opener is especially great for opening jars that contain ingredients like honey, jelly and preserves or other sticky substances that might make the jar lid stick to the jar. These jar openers are small, making it easy to store in a drawer.
Small, handheld Julienne Peelers are wonderful tools for peeling small, thin, long strips from vegetables such as carrots, cucumbers, potatoes, zucchini or other vegetables that have some length to them. They are also great for dressing up desserts with julienned apple, lemon and orange peels, or even chocolate. This tool is lightweight and very easy to handle!
A mandoline slicer is a versatile and valuable tool to have in the kitchen. It very quickly slices fruits and vegetables with great ease, making each slice uniform in size. Mandoline Slicers require no electricity, and store very easily. These slicers can be used on a flat surface or over a bowl. You can even find a variety of small handheld mandoline slicers for just a few dollars in stores.

These stainless steel measuring cups will not rust, stain or corrode.
