Headspace Measurer & Air Pocket Remover

Categories: Canning Supplies


This dual-purpose tool is essential when home canning. Proper headspace and removal of trapped air will make or break whether your jar seals. With this 4 piece kit, you will receive two headspace measuring tools and two magnetic lid grabbers!

Air Pocket Remover.  It is imperative air pockets are removed from each jar prior to processing.  Failing to remove excess air may prevent your lid from sealing – and let’s face it, after all of your hard work, you want every jar to seal!  Use the flat end of this handy tool to shift jar contents to remove trapped air pockets.

Headspace Measurer.  Every recipe should tell you how much headspace is required for proper processing and sealing of your jars!  When I teach canning classes, you will often hear me say, “If your recipe doesn’t give you headspace measurement, get a new recipe!”

Use this essential tool and its convenient measure marks to ensure you are properly filling your jars.  Guessing or “eyeballing” headspace is a sure-fire way to cause a jar not to seal!  Place the tool on the rim of your jar using the recipes measurements allowing the tip of the tool to touch the food.  If the tip is submerged, adjust the headspace by removing food or liquid.  Available in Green.
