Good device but NOT a wide funnel - not for chunky preserves!
on 24 September 2010
I'm happy with my jam funnel, but the manufacturers description is not accurate, as a couple of other reviewers have noted.
This is going to be fine for the making of chutneys, jams etc where any pieces of whole fruit are modest in size. BUT a device which says that the funnel size is 7cm ought to have a funnel size of 7cm and not less than half that. If you were hoping to use this to help you jar chunky piccallilis - dream on, they will get stuck in that tiny funnel! (approx 3 cm)
I assume the makers wanted to produce something which could fit into small necked jars, even slightly wide mouthed ketchup jars (might be a tight squeeze) To be honest I think the very wide top opening might unbalance a tall thin ketchup bottle anyway, and a slightly wider funnel opening (closer to the claimed for 7cm) would have made a more secure fit for most other jars, and allowed for the filling of chunky goodies.
