Jar Funnel, Jar Lifter, Wand:
The jar funnel is a very helpful little tool in that it minimizes messes when transferring your prepared foods from the pot, pan, and/or bowl and into the canning jars. Pair the funnel with a big ladle and you are set to fill up your jars.
A jar lifter can be a godsend. It can help you to keep from scalding yourself when trying to get the canning jars out of your canner and onto a towel for them to cool. Many people will not even attempt to can anything unless they know that their jar lifter will be on hand. (I am one of these people.)
One of the easiest ways to remove your canning lids from hot water is to use a lid wand. The lid wand enables you to pick up the lids by using a magnetic tip, it keeps you from burning your fingers, and keeps your lids from getting contaminated from any germs that may be lingering on your hands.
