Canning Rack 1 - Standard for quart and pint jars


  • holds 7 one-quart jars. 12" in diameter;
  • fits most canners.
  • Made of galvanized steel.
  • This Water Bath Canner Rack fits most boiling waterbath canners.

Blake's rating: Standard replacement rack, like the one that came with the canner



Canning Rack 2 - stainless steel; great for small and odd-sized jars


  • Stainless steel, this rack won't rust
  • Accommodates non-standard jar sizes
  • Holds 14 jelly jars, 14 half-pint, 9 pint or 7 quart jars at one time
  • Small jelly jars won't fall through
  • 12-1/4 in diameter and 3-3/4 deep (not including handles). Made in USA.

Blake's rating: Excellent replacement rack (sooner or later your rack will fall apart from the boiling water (and no, this one is not made of silicone...) Note: for very small jars, I put empty jars in around the full jars to keep them from tipping over. Tipping over is  very common with all racks.


canning rack - makes any large pot a water bath canner

Canning Rack System

This multi-use canning rack system turns any pot into a canning pot and facilitates many culinary tasks like blanching and sterilizing. Used with a large saucepan or stock pot, the racks lift and hold mason jars for easy insertion and removal of jars. The racks elevate the jars off the bottom of pot to prevent glass breakage. These racks have multiple wires to hold all jar sizes, including small jars which won't tip and fall through the rack when lifted. Also great for blanching, steaming, or boiling corn or lobster.
Includes two stainless steel racks (a small one for 91/2 - 101/2" diameter pots and a large one for 11 - 12" diameter pots), a set of adjustable stainless steel lifters, instructions and tips.
