I bought this product from Amazon and received the product practically overnight. Unfortunately, the Jar Lifter had a manufacturing defect that caused the soft coating to slough off after the first use in boiling water. I notified the seller who had Amazon immediately send a replacement at no charge. Unfortunately, the replacement exhibited the same manufacturing defect. It was obvious when the product arrived, before any use at all. My conclusion - don't buy this jar lifter from Amazon until after they clear out all the defective merchandise from their warehouse. Fortunately for me, the seller bent over backward to make it right and they did it so quickly it left my head spinning! I have worked with a lot of Amazon and eBay sellers but by far, this seller is the BEST I have encountered!!!

The jar lifter didn't even last a few batches before the rubber started cracking and subsequently I found a flake of the rubber on the INSIDE of a jar of applesauce. Thankfully it was blue and easily visible.

No matter what color it would have or could have been, this is an absolute MUST have item for canning whether you're just starting out or an experienced canning queen/king, grab yourself a set! I've used these once a week for 3 weeks, no problems so far.

UPDATE: I've had this set for almost a year now, using them about 3 times a month and they are still going strong with no issues. They've been invaluable for my canning journeys!

I bought this set because it seemed like a cheap way to get the essentials for canning -- indeed the set was cheaper than some jar lifters by themselves. Unfortunately, it seems, you (don't) get what you (don't) pay for here. After just two uses in two weeks, the plastic bits around the jar lifter popped off and won't go back on. The other plastic utensils are clearly cheaply made of cheap plastic. I would recommend spending an extra dollar or two and buying tools that will last for longer than it takes to ship them to you.

I'm still fairly new to canning stuff. But when I first started it I thought "heck why do I need these things" trust me...it makes life so much easier! There is a wide mouth funnel which is so nice because they you don't spill the hot jam (or whatever you're making) all over the place and then have to wipe hot jam while you are trying to do everything else. There is a magnet on the end of the stick to help get the jar lids out of the hot water (sooooo much easier then using two forks)...and a jar gripper which is a lot easier to use. I didn't worry if I was going to drop anything I knew it was gripped tightly. So easy to use - good quality and affordable. You don't have to spend a lot of money for it! I got ours at Walmart for 6.40! You can't go wrong!!!

I use these tool several time a week and have only good things to say about them.
If I were designing a tool set for canning and pickling I would rethink the jar grabber.
I would prefer a set of log tongs with non-slippery rubber to allow me to reach deep into my water bath with a tool that will grip a wet jar.

Nice kit to start with. Everything in the kit works great, which is why I gave this 5 stars. I have had it now for at least 7 years and nothing has broken and it all still works fine.

The magnetic lid lifter could be a bit longer so you don't wind up burning your fingers trying to lift the lids out of the pot of hot water, but I just used the tongs to hold it while grabbing the lids if the water is a bit deeper than normal. The lids aren't heavy so it's no big deal.

The tongs grab the hot jars up and out of the pots very easily, and the funnel makes filling the jars so simple. Works great, have even used the funnel to fill thermoses up with hot soup.

The bubble remover/headspace measuring tool also does what it is supposed to do. I haven't had any problems with this kit. The only thing that is looking shabby is the box they came in that I still store all the pieces in when not in use. I've never used any of the other canning kits so I can't compare the quality and usefulness of this kit with another. I just know that I have had this kit for years, everything that I received is still in great shape, and for me this works perfect.

All canning utensil sets are NOT equal! My other half had purchased some oddball store brand of jar lifter when my canning utensils came up missing after the last move--and it didn't grip evenly, and the rubberized coating was so thin it tore. So, we order this utensil set to replace the missing lifter. The price would have been the same if I had bought it locally, but nobody HAD any when I went looking (go figure--Walmart fails yet again LOL).

The set arrived ahead of schedule, and as with all Ball products, the quality is exceptional. The lifter grips evenly, lifts evenly, and has a nice thick protective coating that will last for years--at least my last one did. The Funnel and other tools are also a thicker and more durable plastic than you find in the oddball brands at dollar stores. Of course, within a week of getting this, all my old utensils turned up out of nowhere--Murphy's Law of Kitchen Appliances never fails. But it has turned out to be really convenient having a double set, as we are canning more than usual this year--so now we can run the pressure canner and the water bath, and not be going nuts when everything is done processing at once.

There are two things you should never skimp on--kitchen tools and shoes. That's why I always go with Ball for my canning supplies.
