If you love canning foods, but hate the pain, purchase the Norpro Magnetic Lid Wand to remove your canning lids from boiling water with ease. The Norpro Magnetic Lid Wand has a magnetic bottom and a long arm. This allows you to grasp and pull the lids out of boiling water. You eliminate the need to place other foreign objects in the water and contaminate the other lids. The lids come out of the water, still sterile. In addition, you can use the Norpro Magnetic Lid Wand around your home for other needs. Grab other metal objects from hard to reach places such as on top of shelves or nails that have fallen behind crevices.
