Ball® Preserving Starter Pack 5 "Good value starter pack" Mrs Shepherd 31 July 2015 I bought the pack because I want to try proper water bath preserving, and I'm pleased with the contents. I haven't used it yet but the various components seem well made, and the jars look lovely. The air bubble remover tool has a clever gauge at one end to easily measure the headspace at the top of the filled jars. There's a leaflet in the box with three recipes, and then you are directed to a UK web address for further recipes, and here's the only disappointment: all the recipes on the website are in American cups! It's a shame that, for UK cooks, they haven't been converted into metric.
