Where was this ladle when I was looking for one for canning?
A year ago I went on a search for a ladle to use for canning. I wanted something stainless, something with a long handle and something that would hold a lot of product to fill jars quickly. I eventually went with a [easyazon-link asin=”B008K3Z76Q” locale=”us”]commercial food service ladle that held 8 ounces[/easyazon-link].
Before I settled on that one, I had found [easyazon-link asin=”B000063Y7U” locale=”us”]one with a rim around the edge[/easyazon-link] that was supposed to prevent drips. It worked well and was a high quality product, but the handle was too short for a deep stockpot, and it was also heavy.
I’m going to have to try this one because I’ve often wished for pouring spouts! It also holds 8 ounces.
I also noticed [easyazon-link asin=”B007PC4E4Y” locale=”us”]another stainless canning ladle[/easyazon-link] that is a little smaller at only 6 ounces. There are also two plastic ones. While I’m not fond of plastic, the [easyazon-link asin=”B007QT4GNU” locale=”us”]Progressive International Canning Scoop[/easyazon-link] looks interesting because of its shape – it should get into pot corners very well. But it appears to have a very short handle.
If anyone else has this – or if you decide to try it, please leave me comments below. I’ll update this post with my thoughts on it after I get a chance to try it this canning season.
