The Ball FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System makes a great gift for newlyweds or couples who garden and either already preserve their bounty or who have mentioned wanting to learn to preserve their garden-fresh fruits and veggies. This would also make a great gift for a family – instead of buying separate gifts for each family member. With a gift like this, the whole family could work as a team to preserve food and save money for the household, while at the same time spending quality time together as a family.

This revolutionary appliance makes preserving jams, jellies, pickles and more as easy as pushing a button. It’s a far cry from the water-bath canning method requiring cooks to perfectly time and heat their jars. With seven built-in safety checks and a completely automated jar processing system, the appliance makes canning simple and safe every time. It can also save up to 30% less time, and uses 50% less energy and 85% less water than traditional canning methods.

The Automatic Home Canning System includes a removeable inner pot for easy cleaning, a jar rack and jar lifter, two vent cleaners, and a recipe book. What we really like about this system is that while it’s small enough to be convenient, it’s also large enough to process 6 half pint, 4 pint, or 3 quart jars per batch. Cleaning is also simple, because the inner pot, jar rack and lifter are all dishwasher safe.
