If you've every tried climbing onto the kitchen counter for leverage, started working on your grip strength at the gym, or called a handyman just to open a jar, you're not alone.

But, we found a kitchen gadget with motorized muscle that could revolutionize your jar-opening experience, but will it work?

We took it to the Older Persons Commission in Rochester to test it out.

Robo Twist promises to open the toughest jars with just the push of a button. Pressing the green button triggers the clamp-like arms to close in on the target. The lower one grips the jar and when they grip the jar, the upper arms grip the lid and start turning.

It works like a charm. The problem is there's no off button on the noisy gadget and it automatically resets after every use.

For just $19.99 and a supply of AA batteries, your days of battling a tough-to-open jar could be over.
