dual lid jar

It gets tricky to take those last bits out of either the peanut butter or the jelly jar – in the first, one ends up with buttered hands on top and peak-plus-valley formations at the bottom; in the second, scooping out the somewhat more liquid substance is even tougher.

Hence this double-lidded design – so simple, yet entirely transformative. Getting close to the bottom? Just tip it over and start again through the other ready opening.

Sherwood Forlee explains the versatility of his creation: “This jar is useful for more than just peanut butter. Never waste a single morsel ever again!”

“You can use Easy PB&J Jar for lots of different goods such as almond butter, cashew butter, pistachio butter, hazelnut butter, macadamia butter, hazelnut butter, or any other but butter. You can also think of mayonnaise, jams, jellies, fruit spreads, honey, pâtés, and other pastes.”

“However, you can not easily transfer your butter from their old jar to Easy PB&J Jar unless the manufactures start packaging there products in container similar or you make nut butter or jam at home by yourself.”

“In my opinion, If you care of bio-waste, safety material for your health, you should choose your favorite manufactures. Once you can trust that your favorite manufactures create the jars with good material and safe for health, I think you will be satified and fun. Anyway, If you are worried about food waste, use it.”

The prototype appears to work – as long as the seals are sufficiently firm along whatever edge leads as the bottom. Now, if only Winnie the Pooh had a double-ended honey jar, perhaps he would not get his head caught inside quite so often.

This double-lid jar doesn’t seem to be for sale, but one wonders why it hasn’t already been mass produced. Surely there’s a market for it!
