Convincing, but he could be a knife salesman.

Seems heat works two ways. Heating the lid only, expands the metal (or plastic?) and loosens the lid.
Heating the whole jar alters the internal pressure and makes for easier opening.

Terra, that's what I do except I use the tip of a teaspoon instead of a knife!
It's very simple and works every time.

An old fashioned bottleopener works for me. Just lift the lid enough to release the pressure,and it can then be removed with ease.
I also,at the first attempt,use a non-slip cloth which also works most times.

Bottles. Sometimes a sharp knife will break the plastic seal on bottle tops, but sometimes not. Failing hot water and a towel-packed door jamb, will an engine oil filter strap wrench help then?

:icon_biggrin:
Today I opened my first difficult jar of jam since this thread on "jars" commenced.
Using the tips offered here, I simply stuck a knife just under the lip of the lid.... a slight twist of the wrist.... a little "hiss" and then I simply unscrewed the lid with no trouble at all.
Thanks everyone !

Using the knife seal breaking method what happens if you crack the glass and chips mix with the contents?
Throw the lot away and start over?
