Removing the Lid Off a Spice Jar - Without Breaking Your Fingernails!

Removing the plastic lids off spice and seasoning jars has always equaled a fingernail ending experience for me.  Until I thought about the process and how I can make it easier on myself.  I don't do it all that often but sometimes you need to a teaspoon of spice and don't want to sit there for half a day tapping spices out of a jar.  That is where my church key or manual can opener comes into play and save my fingernails.  As you can see in the video below either process works for taking the plastic shaker piece off a spice jar.

This also lead me to research where the term church-key comes from originally.  In my reading, it appears to be an older term that references the old glass bottle openers used in breweries that resembled an actual church-key.  In the 1930s when a device with a triangle on the end to punch a hole in flat top beer cans was developed, the term church-key was more widely adopted.  Happy learning!

While I make a small percentage off sales used through my code, these are items I have used and trust.  I use them in my home or everyday life, and no amount of commission is worth compromising your trust.  Happy shopping!
