Canning Accessories You Should Keep

From canning to creating crafts and decor, mason jars are a hot product for many home improvement retailers. During the pandemic, many people turned to at-home craft projects that used mason jars and they became so popular many retailers couldn’t keep mason jars in stock. 

For your customers wanting mason jars for canning purposes, there are a number of accessories you should stock to become a one-stop canning resource and boost add-on sales. 

The Presto Pressure Canner and Cooker has an easy-to-read gauge that automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures, and the air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build up only when the cover is closed properly. With a clad bottom, the Victorio Stainless Steel Multiuse Canner comes with a tempered glass lid to easily see inside the pot and a temperature indicator with different elevation zones to time each canning job correctly. 

The Norpro Wide Mouth Plastic Funnel is an affordable option to easily get large quantities of liquid or dry ingredients into the canning jars and fits most standard and wide mouth mason jars. Find everything you need to get started canning with the LEM Canning Starter Kit, which comes with a canning funnel, jar lifter, kitchen tongs, jar wrench, lid lifter and bubble popper. The JarBox is protective, stackable and versatile storage that comes in both pint and quart sizes.
