We each have our own favourite method for opening a stubborn jar lid. The folks at America’s Test Kitchen have a great selection of tips that will open any stubborn lid if your preferred way doesn’t work.

One tip I always seem to forget is to put plastic wrap over the opening to make it easier to dislodge next time.
