Don't be tempted to use standard kitchen tongs to lift canning jars as they're not designed for taking wet and slippery jars out of boiling water - you're going to eventually have an accident.
Instead, use a canning jar lifter (not to be confused with canning tongs) as it clamps on jar tops to help you remove the hot jars from boiling water safely and easily. It is also adjustable to fit virtually any sized canning jar.
Victorio began in 1937 in order to sell its famous food strainer. Over the decades it expanded its product line to cater to those interested in the process of home canning and its necessary equipment. It has since rebranded to VKP Brands to reflect the wide range of kitchen products and brands that it sells, including 'Roots & Branches', 'Time for Treats', The 'Johnny Apple Peeler' and 'Kitchen Crop', among many other brands.
