  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Have to use their recipes I have contacted this company several times and do not receive any response that they are working to improve this product. It was very pricey 3 years ago. Mainly I am unhappy because they will not tell you how to adapt your own recipes and all their recipes require using their mixes. I do not like to use mixes.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for heavy canning Lovely for use in making jams and jellies, but back to back processing of tomato products grinds canner to halt. I am disappointed in the many limitations of this item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was good to be in a jam I have never made jam before, but this appliance made it easy. The steps were automated and it didn't heat up my kitchen. I plan on using it to can tomato when they are in season.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Perfect! I was so excited to receive my new canning system yesterday; this morning I made two batches of yummy blackberry jam in less than two hours. I can't wait to try the salsas and seasoned tomatoes! I am thrilled to have an appliance that makes preserving easier and more efficient. It's practically foolproof, and takes the intimidation factor right out of the equation. No more huge pots of water to fill, lug, watch, and then empty. No boiling jars. No hot kitchen. No adjusting for altitude. That alone makes it worth the price of the item. The recipes are perfectly sized for the smaller quantities that are sufficient for my husband and me. I highly recommend this appliance for anyone who wants to begin preserving, or who simply wants smaller quantities. You won't be sorry!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! We were so excited to receive this as a wedding present and have loved experimenting with different pickles and jams over the past week or so. I have always loved making jams, salsas, etc., but hated the traditional water bath method. I can't believe how fast and easy this is, and the best thing about it is that it doesn't put off any heat. I can't wait to really put it through its paces this summer--SO looking forward to being able to can without heating up my whole kitchen and spending hours waiting for the water to boil! I was worried about being constrained to the Ball recipes, but it looks like it'll be pretty easy to use this for my own recipes, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use for first time canning We purchased this wonderful "Ball Fresh TECH Automatic Home Canning System" last August 2014 at the Sommerset Mall. It was not on display on the shelves but the store representative at Williams Sonoma was very helpful! He took the time to locate it in the storage area. Most would not gone to the trouble (since it was not on display). This was a pleasure to use the first time. It was not overly complicated. The directions were easy to follow. We made some great Strawberry Jam in the blue and green colored jars. Everything turned out better than we thought! Fresh fruit and wholesome ingredients makes it taste so good! Can't wait to find fresh strawberries and cherries this spring and summer here in Michigan. This canning system will not disappoint !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recipes are great and easy to follow I've wanted to start canning for years, but it seemed daunting. This machine takes out the guess work, and the nervousness associated with canning. The recipes that are programmed are exactly what I need (BBQ sauce, tomato sauce, peaches)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ball Home Canning System Very nice to free up the stove burners. Great product for year round preserving. I have only used it for jam preserving so far, but plan on using it to preserve extra spaghetti sauce etc.
