  • Super Easy

    Water Bath canning isn't very difficult but this machine is very convenient. Heats the jars in 11 minutes so they are ready and waiting until you fill them up and ready to can with the push of a few buttons.Number one Best thing about this canner is i don't have to worry about my children getting burned during the process!! I do wish this canner could pressure can low acid foods :(

  • Works Great

    This is a great unit. It does what it is made for. However, it is limited to only recopies in the Ball recipe book. I like to add my own ingredients, but you can not do this for this machine as stated in the owners manual. I did return this item. The cost is not worth it to me, considering I do a lot of canning.
