The rack works as advertised, however, the USDA, NCHFP, and Ball Blue Book all say it is no longer necessary to sterilize lids and jars. A quick wash is all that's needed. I have the rack and just use it to hold washed lids until I'm ready to place them on the jars.

Love this lid rack! No more struggling with tongs to try to get the lids off the bottom of the pan. Great idea and it works!

I had purchased one of these during the early part of canning season and absolutely loved it. But one wasn't enough for as much canning as I was doing so I bought another one. Then using Lehmans magnetic can lid mover - this made canning FUN. Do purchase - they really work great for sterilizing.

Handiest thing since sliced bread! Just handle the knob at the top very carefully- the glue definitely melts/becomes hot with heat! Still a wonderful contraption though.

This item is very handy to have and I highly recommend it to canners. My only complaint is that the glue that holds the wooden knob to the metal melts when subjected to heat (steam/boiling water). The product would be absolutely perfect if the wooden knob was affixed with woven threads, or by some other method.

As my mother used to say, this is as handy as a pocket in a shirt! I got one for all my canning buddies and they all love it too!
