Can't go wrong..., By Kathleen Azhar
October 31, 2011
I bought this set to replace an old canner (sans lid) that had belonged to my grandmother and I wanted to make a batch of apple butter. It arrived promptly, I washed it all and made a huge batch of apple butter and brandied pears. While washing the canner and jar rack/lifter, I noticed a spot on the lid where the enamel had flaked off and the jar rack was rusted! I wasn't horrified, but concerned that after one use it looked worse than my grandmothers old pot. I contacted Granite Ware via email--they were fantastic! They shipped me a new canner and rack (the blancher and strainer were perfect) in record time. I canned blueberry jam this weekend and the enamel is perfect and no rust on the rack.I must say, it is always a relief to deal with a company that will replace an item without delay, questions or redirecting blame--sometimes there is just bad product and once replaced everybody is happy. I would buy Granite Ware again in a heartbeat. I KNOW this company will...
Canning Kit, By D. Case

I bought this kit so I could more easily make Pepper Jelly. The kit made it easier to do the whole process. The tools really helped in the handling of hot jars and lids. The only problem I had was in heating the smaller jars (4oz and 8 oz). The basket (which is essential to the process) was designed to hold the larger jars (1 pint to 1 qt).Overall, I really like the kit and I am planning to can some vegetables and some home made salsa in larger jars.
not for smooth cooktops, By shmoopy

Description didn't say that this cannot be used on smooth ceramic cooktops, so I didn't find that out until I opened the box and read it on the pot's label. Disappointed in the description provided, but shipping was quick and the return was simple with a speedy refund.
