Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System
Last year I started doing some basic canning but have had a huge interest in stepping it up a bit. Then along came the Ball® FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System. Now I can do just about anything! It’s made with SmartPRESERVE™ technology, a suite of sensors that control the time and temperature needed to can popular Ball® recipes all on its own – recipes are pre-programmed in!
Automatic Home Canners vs. Traditional Water Bath Canners
- Preserves recipes up to 30% faster.
- Uses up to 60% less energy.
- Uses up to 85% less water.
- Will automatically adjust for altitude.
When I use my water bath canner I always feel like I am not waiting the right amount of time. Then I worry – maybe it isn’t sealed properly… Keep in mind I am relatively new to canning. But with what I have done so far no one has ever gotten sick and nothing ever tasted poorly. It always tasted perfectly fresh.
The Automatic Home Canning System comes with:
canning recipe book with 70+ recipes
To use you simply decide which recipe you are going to make and prep it all. For example – for pickles start cutting them and preparing them.
I chose to cut some as spears and some as slices. Then you put the jars into the auto canner – press the recipes number on the touchpad. Then the canner chimes when the food has been perfectly preserved. Recommended shelf life is up to a year.
I love that the base is safe to touch – even when in use. I never know what my kids are going to touch or even our dogs. They are an English Mastiff and a Newfoundland. They don’t even have to jump to bump their nose on it.
This would make a great gift for a loved one who enjoys canning. It will allow them to not be stuck hanging out at the stove while canning. I can thrown my canning in, set it, walk away and go clean, blog, play – whatever I want. Come back when it is done. I am not tied to the kitchen. What a difference that makes.
