    wow! so much better than the way i learned from my mom: run lid under hot water & tap firmly with a knife .... it doesn't work right away. takes much hot water, & infinite tapping >:^(

    thank-you for sharing this much simpler, quicker way, v.b! x^D

    have done in this in the past , but didn't really trust the knife

    best method i found was to give the bottom of the jar a smack with the palm of your hand , the thumb section of your palm , this will force the air in the jar up popping the safety seal

    I'm aware of that method, but most of time it takes a lot of smacking before the pressure is released. (not to mention big jars)

    I must try this out! I have always done acrobatics to get these jars open.... Sometimes the pressure is sooo much. Thanks was useful
