I was watching Nigella's Christmas Kitchen tonight Series 2, and she was making Chilli Jelly. She uses the jam funnel to put chilly jar and her other preserves into jars. For those with experience with preserving you will know that usually you have to put a teatowel down first, take the jars out of the oven (Nigella uses the dishwasher) onto the teatowel. Then with a ladle sometimes a little goes onto the teatowel. The funnel sounds perfect! I want one!
