The kit was marked down because it was missing pieces like the funnel, can lifter, bubble remover/head space gauge and jar lifter... but those are generally just extra stuff you really don't need. What did come with the kits was the pot, rack, 4 small limited edition mason jars, pectin and dvd. I already bought a jar lifter in the clearance section from Winners previously thinking that one day I would get myself into canning (what a coincidence). I also picked up a funnel because it's easier and cleaner to can when you have one, and of course I got myself a case of 1L mason jars.
