If you hate thick, awkward, hard-to-open plastic packaging as much as I do — you need a pair of Open It!. I reviewed these package openers in December and although they look like big ugly pruning shears – you cannot beat them for slicing through the thick plastic packaging manufacturers love to use on their electronic gizmos. Because these are shaped like scissors, they are much safer than using a knife which can slip and cut you. I’ve had my pair of Open It! close by in the kitchen and use them several times per week. If you’ve ever sworn while opening thick packaging with flimsy scissors — you need these. Pick them up locally for $9.99 at Home Depot or Amazon sells them for $9.88.
