Hi, please see the following examples I've created, imagining them being said by your family member who you gave the jar to as a gift.

1. This jar is too wide to hold easily.
2. This jar is too wide to hold
with ease.


Are "easily" and "with ease" both appropriate in this context and do they mean exactly the same?

    I agree with redwoodgrove, but I would say either is acceptable.
