A modern update of traditional canning tongs, this tool is designed for easy one-handed use when lifting jars in and out of a boiling-water bath. Spring-loaded hinges keep the lifter open until you apply pressure, which makes it easier to lower the tongs over each jar. Spring loaded for convenient one-handed use. Textured nonslip gripper edges safely remove jars from hot water. Curved handles provide a secure, ergonomic grip. BPA-free. Dishwasher safe. 3" x 3 3/4" x 10 1/4" high.
