Today I'm testing out five gadgets designed to open those frustrating blister and clamshell packages that are so common during the holidays. I tried these in several ways, according to instructions and also in other ways people might try to use them.

  • i know im late to the game but i prefer the islice unit (green one you showed but didnt use) it works on all packaging its safe (just try cutting yourself with it ) and cheap as chips

  • I think the benefit of the Fiskars is their handles. The handles angle so they don't get in the way of the plastic they're opening when they're cutting through it.

  • I think the slit it is the only box opener I'd let a child use, there's no exposed sharp blade, but they can still open their blister packs

    JoeJoeپیش 2 ماه
  • Protip: get an xacto knife and run it across the back edge of the packaging, the packaging is not destroyed, and you probably saved a lot of money. this tip also works with regular Stanley knives, but xacto blades are sharper. I most rather get a safety knife though.

    JoeJoeپیش 2 ماه
  • Pros say “Here’s a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist” Amateurs say “you know a 99 cent box cutter will open all of these faster and easier” Would loved to have seen a box cutter used as control group!

  • I am not sure what you wanted to proof . My ideal is a package which can be opened by hand. I don’t understand why you would want to spend money on a gadget when soccers work just as fine... the packaging should change, not the way we open it... my soldering iron can open all of them more easy...

    Thomas LindnerThomas Lindnerپیش 2 ماه
  • Oh, I’m super bummed that Zibra Open It isn’t featured. Blows all of these out of the water. Used it for years and years in a retail store. Offset handles are KEY, and has massive snips.

  • From what I can see, most of these are all just re-branded gadgets/tools that most people already own. Zip-It!: It's like you said, an automatic can opener. Plastic Surgeon and OPENX: Essentially Exact-o knives/scalpels. Fiskars: They're scissors. Slit It: The only original gadget on the list.

  • that plastic surgeon one you could take to a store and use it to steal shit right out of the packages LOL...well i guess you could do that with all except the ZIP-IT only cause its big and kind noisy but tho others yeah only peoples ethics will stop them from using them on products in stores which defeats the whole purpose of the packaging so kinda funny i wonder how many people actually have used them to steal things?

Thanks for this awesome review, so tired of fighting ope plastic packaging, it's nice to know there are some options beyond the hatchet and chainsaw :)

  • My process for breaking into clamshell packages is cutting open the top, making a slit down the middle of the back of the product, and then if necessary open the sides from the back to remove the product. It’s more scissor friendly since you’re only addressing the clamshell portion for only one part of the package

  • 10 years ago after slicing open a finger on some sharp plastic, I bought the Open X & never looked back. I've since bought them as gifts & keep one in the car. Highly recommend that one but I never use it to open the side..just go for the blister or as close to any open area as you can.
