    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.

    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.

    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.

    Just to clarify, the box that comes with the pro-tools essentials recording studio. Not the more expensive versions. Does it provide phantom power through the XLR input for condenser mics?

    My chaptick (Back to Basics brand) fell on the floor and I didn’t realize it and my dog started chewing it. I don’t think he ate a lot considering the amount we picked up, will it hurt him? He’s a golden/yellow lab mix.

    I was reading an article about the Tumbleweed Homes, it’s one of those microhomes that you’ve heard about in the news for the last few years. I read that you’ll need 14 essential tools to build, repair, and upgrade a house? What are these tools? Anyone here have a list and what’s each tool’s specific functions are?

    I have drills, a miter saw, and circular saw; that’s it for my power tools. Aside from those tools, I have hammers, screw drivers, pliers, etc.

    I have noticed that I am becoming very interested in woodworking and have done a few projects, but I want to continue to advance and perhaps someday be a furniture builder in my free time.

    Which tools or power tools are absolutely essential to do your average woodworking project? Also, how can I learn more about these things? Is it just me, or is this the best past time ever?
