Rated 5 out of 5 by Lu1016 from Canning Tongs Easy to use for both regular and wide mouthed jars. I like the rubbery coating. Always in an open position; squeeze handles together to grab jars. It's a little bulkier compared to the canning tong that came with the Ball FreshTech Canner. It's a little more streamlined. I go back an forth trying to decide which I like better.Date published: 2014-08-22Rated 5 out of 5 by MissAlisa from Love These!!!! I Love these canning tongs! I have had several pair of the traditional kind, but always had a problem with the jars slipping, splashing hot water, etc. since they wouldn't grip. With these, that problem is SOLVED! These pick up small 1 cup jars just as easily as the large quart jars, and they don't slip. Also, the grip is very easy, and even after doing several batches of preserves, my hands were not sore. These sure made my life MUCH easier, and I highly recommend them. The quality of my pair seems great despite the unfortunate experience of the prior reviewer, and I'm purchasing another for my daughter.Date published: 2013-12-02Rated 1 out of 5 by belfry from The Caning tongs failed I used it a few times last year. But this year, when I fist used it to take jars out of the water bath prior to putting in the jam, the tongs broke. The plastic just failed completely. Fortunately, no one got hurt and I was able tio purchase wire ones from Ball, made in USA. Don't use these tongsDate published: 2013-06-16Rated 5 out of 5 by jkwill from Excellent Design These can be used with one hand. I have early onset arthritis and these make handling jars safer and much easier. The tongs are curved on the bottom and fit well around the top of the jar. Also makes it much easier to drain water out of jars that have been filled with water during the sterilization process. Can't imagine canning without these.Date published: 2012-07-26
