Anyone ever have an extremely hard time opening them? I almost had a heart attack opening a jar just now. My arms are aching and red as I type! ALL I WANTED WAS ONE LITTLE PICKLE! I mean come on, maybe they should invent push up tops or ziplock tops?? This is ridiculous! I should call the company that makes these cursed little crunchy pickles! Anyone feel the same way??

Rant over. Whew, I feel better. ;)

I'm the only one in my family who thinks its easy to open them. They can't get it open they hand it to me and I pull it right off. I find it funny.

TIP - turn the jar upside down, bang the lid on the counter, turn it upright and it should open.

Works everytime for me..
I saw it on Rachel Ray.

i haven't tried opening a pickle jar though i hate anything which is hard to open. Mainly for me it's if a bottle has a lid which is hard to turn to break the seal. When i find them hard, i get a piece of paper and put it over the lid to turn it with and it works :)

:idea: Due to Pickle Jar opening stress I have conducted an experiment and produced a theory. All you need to open an extremly hard pickle jar is a meat mallet, hammer, or chainsaw. I have the first two but I'll need to go find a chainsaw. :scratchin

hah sounds like something Brainiac would do. "We all get stressed at some point when trying to open jars. But which is the best method of opening them? we have a mallet, a hammer and a chainsaw. *does experiment*. So if your having trouble opening that pickle jar of yours, smash it open with a *object which won*"

First time I had pickle trouble today, I opened the drawer and looked at the meat mallet...considering. Then I was like nah, I'm not going to do that, I'd get glass in my poor pickles! :eek:

I use a knife or meat mallet. Tap it with the meat mallet. And if that doesn't work TNT works very nice!:thumbsup2

May i suggest one of these:

The Magic Twist is the one i have, it is a god send for getting out those pesy pickles.

I am the only person i know who likes them, i like to know i have a kindred spirit out there!

But the TNT is a good idea too!

:rotfl2: I hope she solved her baked potato problem. And the more I try to open it the harder it is for me to give up! When I want my pickle, I GET MY PICKLE! :)
