I was so excited when my canner arrived. Couldn't wait to open & use it. By the second day I was elated to learn that it is was limited I really couldn't do serious canning. My Peach Pie and Apple Pie couldn't be canned, nor my green beans. My Pickle recipe only needed 10 minutes, fruit recipe only was for those like applesauce. I hope that the next generation of canners can have similar settings such as microwaves with pressure selection and times. That could make it a simple to use for any recipe, Not just the few "approved" recipes.
I absolutely love this canner! It has cut my time in the kitchen down and the tempearature is not soring like it is outside! I am able to do several batches in a realitive small amount of time. Love it! Love it! Love it! Only downside is not being able to adapt my own recipes for canning!
While this product is extremely easy to use, especially for the new canners, it is limited to the recipes in the accompanying booklet. There are too few recipes with nearly no alternatives other than lower sugar for the jams, no vegetables other than tomatoes. Therefore, the cost versus value is lacking. Perhaps there could be more testing to add more recipes given the cost of the product. Also, the 1,000 life was not included in the advertising for obvious reasons, but there was no mention of recycling the device once you reach inoperability. I bought it while recuperating from breast cancer for a productive means of rehabilitation and for thoughtful Christmas gifts, so I will retain the product and continue with the recipes specific to this device.
Really like it need to add more recipes ASAP
I only wish Ball would have come out with this wonderful product sooner as it is awesome. I cannot begin to tell you what a time saver it is over the traditional canning pressure cooking process. I love that you do not have to wait for it to cool down and loose pressure and the recipes always come out perfect! I would buy another one tomorrow if this one quit working! I canned 1 1/2 bushels of peaches in juice and jam and made 2 cookings of blueberry jelly in one afternoon and it was a snap!LOVE this product and would HIGHLY recommend it to any serious canners out there!
