I haven't tried this one yet.  The reviiews online are polarized - people either seem ot love it or hate it.


This is a pretty sturdy almost commercial pea sheller. It has only two reviews online, but both are very positive. I did notice the photo shows green beans going in... and shelled peas coming out. I wouldn't worry about that I suspect the photographer simply didn't know what he was doing when he staged the photo.

See the seller's website for features, pricing and user reviews!

This one comes from Gurney's Seed, and is very similar; but in a white finish.


And here is one more, that is very similar to the first, just through a digfferent vendor!

Home Canning Kits

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes).
