CANADA: useful gadgets and appliances

Anything you buy on this page, will get me a small percent of the selling price. This helps me cover the costs of the website.
Either I own and love these items myself, or a very trusted friend does. This is, I am still working on the US links, and will set up a separate page, so as not to confuse myself. (When talking computer code, this is far more easy than you think.)

HIC Brands that Cook 5-Piece Canning Set
Very useful, the jar lifter and magnet will pay for themselves by the time you finish your first batch.

All American 921 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner
Stupid expensive, I know.  But it’s the best canner I’ve ever used. No gasket, and I used to go through a gasket every 2 months. It has both a weight and a pressure gauge.  The weight means it always hits the right pressure or it won’t jiggle.
