The Ball® Brand Secure-Grip Jar Lifter is designed for lifting jars with confidence and with minimal effort. Handles are ergonomically designed for comfort. The spring hinge improves strength and pops open automatically. Molded grip increases contact surface versus other jar lifters.
Bought this to replace the piece of junk lifter that came with our canner. This is a serious piece of equipment. It's solidly made, hasn't rusted after dozens of canning sessions and - most importantly - none of the plastic bits have melted. When you're lifting a boiling glass jar of hot, thick liquid, don't trust cheap garbage tools - get this lifter!
This jar lifter is secure and stable for lifting jars. I recommend it and think you should discontinue selling the less expensive item.
My old tongs were not fixed together and often came apart as they got a little older. These tongs feel safer as I pick up hot jars. I am a little concerned that there is not metal inside the rubber grips. I am still getting used to them though so will probably get used to the new feel.
I was leery about using a different lifter-hate change, but this is truly a wonderful product. If I had to choose my favorite canning tools, this will be my number one. I no longer worry about the jars slipping if I don't hold the handles tightly, very easy to manipulate.
