TIGHTEN METAL BAND FIRMLY IMMEDIATELY UPON REMOVAL FROM CANNER.
When jars have cooled, remove metal band and determine by feel if lids are securely sealed. Sealed jars may be stored without metal bands if desired.
When removing lid gently insert table knife between rubber and jar to release seal -- DO NOT USE SHARP KNIFE.
Wash plastic lids and rubber rings, rinse, dry and store for future use. Do not save any rubber ring which is cut or deformed.
- JARS WITH NICKS OR CHIPS IN TOPS WILL NOT SEAL PROPERLY.
- APPROX. 1 INCH OF HEADSPACE SHOULD BE ALLOWED FOR SUFFICIENT VACUUM.
- USING A TOWEL OR SOMETHING SIMILAR WHILE TIGHTENING METAL BAND, AFTER PROCESSING, WILL HELP PREVENT ACCIDENTAL CONTACT WITH HOT CONTENTS SHOULD SOMETHING UNFORSEEN HAPPEN.
