You don’t see these jar openers very often, and it’s a shame; they’re extremely handy (no pun intended). As we get older, opening those tightly-sealed jars gets tougher and tougher.

While flour is still sold in relatively large sacks, back in the day the containers were even larger than they are now! All of that flour would eventually become packed pretty tightly. Running flour through the sifter would help aerate it, making it lighter and easier to mix; perfect for making bread for that fancy toaster!
