Ball® Brand Home Canning Equipment Giveaway

Disclosures: Jarden Home Brands sent me each of the giveaway items noted below at no cost to me and will ship the winner’s kit directly to them at their own expense. My opinions on the product are not influenced by this gift.

This year Jarden Home Brands launched the third appliance in its FreshTECH family. The new FreshTECH Electric Water Bath Canner + Multi-Cooker is a plug-in, countertop appliance that eliminates the need for stove top heating. This removes the concerns of ceramic-glass stove top owners and makes it more convenient to handle than traditional water bath canning pots. The appliance enables users to multi-task during the canning process, eliminating the need to monitor boiling water or move the pot to fill and drain.

So, I know you’re thinking oh, another fairly narrow-use appliance… I certainly had that thought initially, but now that I’ve pulled it out and really explored all of the possibilities, I see that this device is essentially a more versatile version of a crock pot that allows you to actually waterbath can in addition to all the slow cooking you might want to do. The pot’s size is also quite handy for the larger soups and stock batches that won’t fit in your standard crock pot.

Plus, there’s a spigot which eliminates the majority of the lifting and pouring you need to do to get water or stock out of the pot when finished. I also plan to use this as our mulled wine or mulled cider vessel for our annual holiday party. No more sticky goo all over the kitchen stove as people try to ladle out festive warm beverages.

Beyond the electric canner, Jarden Home Brands is offering up a Ball Blue Book Guide to Preserving and a case of regular mouth pint jars!
