Remove the containers with tongs or special gloves, to avoid burns. Put the banks on a clean, dry towel with their necks up.

Advice 2 : How to choose a closing key

In order to prepare for winter and make conservation requires not only a good recipe and vegetables and high-quality sealing key, which guarantees the defeat of the germs in the cans before opening them. In stores there is a great selection for jars of the keys from semi-automatic to fully automatic.
How to choose a closing key
Instruction
1
When choosing a seaming key, consider the type of mechanism and method of seaming that suits you in terms of convenience, quality and price. So, automatic keys are very easy to use and help to tighten the Bank in just half a minute: after putting the lid on the jar you put on top of the key and press several times on the lever. One of the most popular among Housewives, semi-automatic seaming key should be rotated several times in a circle, but if the neck of the banks will be uneven and you will be able to tightly close the jar with the canning. Key-snail rolls banks a little longer, because after the completion of the rotation, it must rotate in the opposite direction. The advantage of this key is a uniform pressure of the cap brim to the Bank, and also the fact that with the help of this key it is possible to make the reverse operation is to remove the covers from jars.

One of the most reliable, but at the same time, and expensive, is the closing key with two rollers. A key with clamping devices fixes the jar by turning the screw, and pressing on the handles bends the edge of the lid to the pot, then after the circular motions hermetically closes the vessel. This key will become your reliable assistant and will last for many years.
3
You can choose any of the listed seaming machines, but keep in mind most importantly — closing key must be durable and high quality, the handle should turn easily and effortlessly and also go comfortably into the palm of your hand.
4
Keep in mind that closing the keys with the grooves, are more suitable for women because they require less physical effort when rolling. All seaming and key machines equipped with special screws, very quickly tired hands.
5
To check the quality of the seaming key, do the following: after the closing of the banks inspect the cover, it should not have dents, bumps and other irregularities. Smooth cover, tightly pressed to the Bank, is a guarantee that preservation will be successfully stored, and the key has done its job.
6
Try moving the lid: it should not change its position, even with the best efforts from your side. Also turn the jar upside down: if the cover will rise up or bubbles will leak fluid, hence, preservation of closed and key is very weak. After that repeat the procedure and install the jar again.

Advice 3 : How to choose a capping machine

Seaming machine is a special machine which allows you to seal cans of different lengths. Even the simplest versions of such machines provide a sufficient level of reliability when rolling, absolutely precluding the penetration of air in the banks, and with it the threat of bacteria.

The sealing machines are divided into three main types. For example, you can purchase a desktop machine for rolling with two rollers — a fairly massive box with clamping devices. To roll up the Bank with it, you'll need to cover it with a lid with rubber ring and placed in that same box, placing it close to the hard clamps, and then secure the slot with the turn of the screw. Then put the jar, cartridge machines and quickly, but gently several times to click on the handle, whereby the edge of the lid buckle close to the neck of the container. In the end, you need a circular flowing movements of the handles to roll up the cover until it stops.
2
Another kind of sealing machines — semi-automatic key. These products are available cost effective and easy to use. The process of closing with them is as follows: you have tightly secured the cover to the neck of the jars and turn the key in one direction (6-10 times), until then, until you hear a click. The latter indicates that the Bank is fully closed.
3
But the most easy to use is considered to be the closing key auto type — you need to wear it on the lid, and then, turning in a circle and press the levers a few times. This process will take you no more than 30 seconds — the lid is pressed against the neck of the banks as a result of special springs that are inside the key. Such a device is equipped with a special mechanism that protects the Bank from chipping, and covers from various scratches, dents, etc.
4
In addition to the usual sealing machines available today and the so-called sealing-rolling aggregates — combined model, able to open jars and lids to return to their original shape. The main difference of these devices from conventional seaming machines is the availability of special keys in the set to remove the covers and inserts for their recovery.
5
You can choose absolutely any capping machine, but remember that it must be high quality and durable, have easy pivoting arms, which, in turn, should lie comfortably in the hand.
6
In order to test how effectively a machine for twist cans, first of all carefully inspect the cover — all kind of bumps or dents in the bezel or top is unacceptable. Then turn the sealed jar upside down. If you noticed that upward from cover raised air bubbles from the jar or fluid inside, then the machine is defective and it is best to replace it with a new one.
