I don't know what else to call it, but I was at the local thrift store and there was a vintage green handled jar grabber a person uses when getting out hot jars out of water bath canners. I was tickled pink!!!!!! I lost mine somewhere down the line and needed one. It was a dollar, and has the vintage green handles!!! I also found some other misc vintage stuff. Of course, all things I needed LOL!!!!

Kem I found my vintage green handle jar lifter - but I do like grabber - at an estate sale thirty odd years ago. Great find.

According to Ball Blue Canning Book it's called a jar lifter. I've been known to call it "that thingy".

I'm always in search of a vintage green handle piece that I don't have. Been collecting them for years and so enjoy the hunt. One of my prize green handles has a wire basket to hold pieces of soap. My guess it would be lye soap. You swished it around in the water for dishes. I like it but I wouldn't want to give up my Dawn to use one everyday.
