Can and Jar Openers
Since I have EDS, my wrist and hands are fragile. I cannot apply a tight grip. If I do, the torque will cause my wrist bones to pop out.
I found that this is the best electric jar opener for me. It prevents my wrist and hand from twisting. I no longer have to get help opening jars.
There are many can openers available. Some are simple and others difficult to use. A hands-free can opener is the easiest for me. Due to my EDS, I have trouble with traditional electric can openers because they require the cutting blade handle to be latched onto the can first. This is awkward and often requires a lot of pressure from your hand in order to puncture the lid and get the process going. In my experience, many of these units become temperamental or unreliable as time goes on.
This can opener starts with a simple button push. It automatically latches onto the can and starts cutting. If you can’t find one of these in the local grocery or “big box” store, here is a link to the most popular product that I use.
This is an even more economical tool for opening just about any size jar. It is very easy to use. It allows me to get more leverage and prevents my wrist and hand from twisting as I open the jar. Unlike the style of can opener with teeth, this one does not require pressure to be applied to hold a jar against the opener.
