One of the most important tools for the preserver is a set of bottle tongs / jar lifters.
These are used to lift hot jars in and out of boiling pots or pressure canners and so you want to be sure that you will have a set that will stand up to the rigours of constant heat and use.
The economy jar lifter is vinyl coated and will fit any size preserving jar. Durable construction.
Note that the vinyl coated section (the top section as shown in the picture) is the part which grips onto the jar whilst the black handles are for holding.
