I am brand new at canning, and did my first batch prior to ordering these tools. It went okay, but I was immediately sold on the idea of a jar lifter. I looked and looked locally but couldn't find one, and this set was available for immediate shipment.

The jar lifter is fantastic, and ultimately I think it alone is worth the price of admission -- not because it's worth it in and of itself, but because it's a total necessity, so I would have purchased it at any price that wouldn't break the bank.

The other pieces are either already part of a moderately well-equipped kitchen, are nice but not necessary, and/or are not all that well constructed.

I'd opted to return a relatively expensive set of plastic funnels when I purchased this set, but the included funnel here melted a bit under the heat of the boiling brine I poured over the pickles-to-be. Same for the plastic surrounding the magnet when I used it (quite effectively) to grab the jar lids out of a simmer sauce pan. The lid wrench I'm just not sure I see a use for, since jars aren't supposed to be super tight and they tend to loosen when cooled anyway (or am I misunderstanding what this is for?), and the tongs, well, who doesn't have tongs?

Anyway, in researching for this review, I've come to feel like something of an idiot, because the pieces are available separately and eligible for the free shipping promotion of your choice. Unless you don't already have a funnel, or don't mind the possibility of plastic in your canned food, I recommend saving five bucks and just getting these two pieces:

Back to Basics 284 Jar Lifter
Back to Basics 174 Magnetic Lid Lifter

If you need more than those two pieces, though, this set will do the job.

I bought this set in December 2010 and have used it less than 10 times. The coating on the jar lifter is already splitting and flaking off. All I have used it for is to lift jars in and out of my canner-just normal canning use, no prolonged submersion in boiling water.

I contacted the manufacturer about this and they replaced it free. I haven't had much chance to use it since then but the customer service was great.

You really do not need any special equipment for canning, but this set does make it easier.

We have used this several times since we recieved it a couple weeks ago. The one piece I have been a little disappointed with is the lid magnet. It did not pick up the lids very well, (it is a little dangerous to fingers to have lids drop and splash boiling water) I finally just gave up and used the tongs to get the lids out. That being said the other products have worked well.

Rubber on Jar lifter shredded with the first jar. Magnet did not lift jar lids without a number of tries, and fell out on the first day of use. I wish that I had ordered a better quality set.

The magnet in the magnet wand is not strong enough to pick up lids out of the boiling water, nor is the glue strong enough to stand the heat as the magnet fell out of the wand into the boiling water almost immediately. The pair of tongs came out of the box crooked, not lining up, than promptly broke a part upon use.

Worth it to spend a few more bucks, trust me.

This canning kit has everything you need to do home canning. The only improvement is that the magnet on the end of the lid tool was bigger; sometimes when I am working fast the jar lid repeatedly falls back into the boiling water.

The only items in this kit that work well are the funnel and the jar lifter. The magnetized lid lifter is worthless. The magnet is not strong enough to pull a lid out of water. I found a telescoping magnet stick at a hardware store that works much better. I don't care for the tong design. And the jar wrench... who uses a jar wrench? The rings should not be that tight.
