Yep...I find it to be rather pricey for a water bath canner.

Love this idea, but not the value.....pricey item with small batch load. I use a steamer for high acidity and pressure for meats and veggies. Big loads and both canners were relatively inexpensive.

From what I could gather Linda it's just a water bath canner, but it's a set and forget model. I suppose it would be OK for people who can small amounts and don't have the time to watch what's going on.

You are definitely going to need a pressure canner for soups etc

Just found this thread..... totally missed it last fall.

Question: Is this canner a pressure canner or just a fancy hot water bath canner? Does anyone know?

I really want to get something so I can can soups or stews.... It seems I just don't know how to make small batches, and I never have enough room in the freezer so I tend to eat the same thing for days in a row. ..... Gets boring and tiring after day 2.....

Of course the next thing I will be checking out is if it is even still available, and if so, how much it would cost to bring it into Canada, or if it is available from a Canadian supplier (I like to let someone else deal with the duty and customs and taxes.....)

Edit:
OK, I just read through it again, and apparently it cannot do vegetables, so it must not be a pressure canner. I contacted the company to ask them this specific question.... Have to wait until next week for a reply....

The tea towel sounds like a good idea, you can also use this when you bake in the oven in a bain marie.

Nasreen we have lots of sun here as well, but we also have lots of flies as well

Corinna, I just watched a You Tube video this morning, that shows things to use as a rack at the bottom of your pots...
One was a towel folded, another was canning jar rings twistied together.

I have a dehydrator as well Nasreen, I haven't used it yet, but, in the fullness of time, I will get around to drying something

that would be snazzy for a beginner...I use a big blue one or a big pressure cooker pot. I'm totally "unsafe" about it, using tongs, LOL no rack in the bottom (couldn't find it) but the water boils, lids pop, etc etc..

Great Recycling !!!!

I didn't think to reuse my canning water, but why not...
I use my soapy dish water to water my house plants and the gardens around my porch.
The soapy water helps soften the soil and kill (or get rid of) mites and little critters.

I am still using my mom's blue canners. Except for the fact that one rack is kind of warped, they work fine - one for quart jars, one for smaller ones. I do think about all the water it takes, but I don't waste it. In summer after it cools I water the flowers. This time of year I use it to wash my dishes.

Pretty snazzy looking that's for sure.

I think it would work well for someone who is not as experienced with canning or who had a smaller kitchen.

Sound pretty cool. If it held more jars at one time I might think about getting one. Wonder if you have to just use their recipes though?
Thanks for sharing!
