With the Ball FreshTECH Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker, you can treat your family to delectable fresh fruit preserves and spreads at any time. The appliance provides an easy, fast process for making old-fashioned jam. You can choose to make a variety of spreads with fruit ingredients like blueberries, peaches or strawberries along with pectin, sugar and butter. You can even make a reduced-sugar recipe for low calorie jam.
The innovative new Jam Maker appliance will make a fruit spread in just 30 minutes. Instead of the traditional time-consuming large batch canning method, the user friendly jam and jelly maker can make small batches. Now you can try-out fun new recipes and experiment with old recipes without the commitment of making a large batch. After washing and crushing 2 2/3 cups of fruit, sprinkle 3 tablespoons of pectin over the fruit and add 1/2 teaspoon of butter. With just a press of the jam button, the unit begins stirring and cooking the ingredients. The maker will signal when it’s time for the 3 1/3 cups of sugar, which should be added gradually.
Once the jam-making process is complete, the jam maker will emit a signal. With the jam and jelly maker, you will no longer question if the recipe has cooked for the proper time. In addition, families can enjoy the fruit creation immediately, or you can continue the preservation process. If you decide to preserve the jam, just bottle the product in freezer-safe jars or finish canning by adding the jam-filled jars to a boiling water bath. The appliance can make about 4 (8oz) half pints of jam or jelly during each batch.
The button section is clearly marked and easy to use with two settings, which are jam or jelly. Includes a Ball recipe book and features a nonstick interior for easy cleanup. Homemade jam is the perfect holiday gift as it’s affordable and adds a personal touch.
This one convenient appliance will help keep your kitchen stocked with fresh fruit preserves. In addition, the appliance is a handy size for easy cabinet storage while it can be cleaned in a flash.

I have found these units to be such a time saver and safer than stirring over a pot. This is actually my second unit and I am considering a third. My request is that you would make a unit that would handle a larger batch size, as I make a lot of jam and jelly.
Before Christmas I purhased three Automatic Jam & Jelly Makers. One for a daughter-in-law, one for a granddaughter and one for myself. Each of the three were used with different recipes for jam and all three were well pleased with the results. Good for anyone with any food allergies, since you control what ingredients are used. We all highly recommend this product.
I had a knee replacement so I haven't as yet tried this product so I gave it a 4 rating for the product overall. Once I try this product I'd like to update my rating if possible. The price was great when I bought it so no complaints there. I also would recommend this product at this time too.
I think this will be an easy and fun way to make my own jam and jelly. The controls on the front look simple to use. I was surprised to see that there was absolutely no paperwork or instruction included in the box. However, there is a small cookbook made specifically for this item called... Jams and Jellies Preserving By the Pint In Minutes. It can be easily found on Amazon.
I had never made jam before, but was always interested. I thought it was an all day project, messy, and complicated. This machine and recipe booklet made everything very easy and within a couple of hours from cleaning the berries to cleaning the counters, I had jam! (disclaimer...I am a bit messy) Great fun!
Very fast and easy to clean.
Good product that will really be a plus next summer when all the really fresh fruit is in and the days are scorching hot. I would really like to see the number of recipes grow and/or have guidelines to adjust other recipes for more variety.
I have made 2 doz. 1/2 pts. of various jams and jellies. Had a lot of fun doing small quantities instead of gallons of fruit juices. Planning on making strawberry and rhubarb jam in a couple days. Thanks for a good product. Jay
I have only used my Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker once and was pleased with it's performance but wish I could have doubled the recipe. It only made 4 pints and it was too little a batch to can. I did boil my jars and lids and they did sealed but I don't trust that and would have liked to "cold pack" them but wouldn't do it for only 4 pints. Are you thinking about making a larger one? I think the price was a little high for what you get. The jam is delicious!!! Thank you!
The jam and jelly maker machine has taken the guess work out of preserving jelly, tomatoes, jams and pickles. There always seemed to be so many variables in canning. Now the time spent is almost always successful. This is a great product.
It you don't mind doing 4 1/2 pints at a time it is wonderful. You can do more later if you want. Cleanup ia quick. I pit it on FB and have talked to others about it. Thanks.
My sister first purchased this product last year! Our jams turned out amazing! We could not keep it on the shelf because all our friends and family wanted some! And then some more!! The Traverse City Cherry jam was the best! I called it "liquid gold" Thanks for making the canning process so easy and fun! Of course this year I wanted my own so we could double our number of jars we put up! Great produce!
I love this little appliance! My granddaughter and I have made several different types of jam in it and will be making jelly soon. So simple to operate and clean. Since it makes small batches, we can try many different types of jelly or jam and it would be a perfect gift too.
The only complaint I have about this appliance is the screw was too short for putting together the handle, so I had to get creative.
No fruit in season right now, so I used frozen peaches from last year because I needed to see how the J/J maker worked. Impressive. I'll probably use less sugar next time, I like the taste of the fruit (not so sweet). Picking strawberries in 2 weeks!!! Pleased with my purchase.
I am DELIGHTED with this with this one exception. The capacity is not sufficient for my wishes.
This product is amazing! So easy to use and easy to clean up. The recipe booklet is so useful and has great ideas.
Perfect for my needs. Works exactly as promised- quick & easy and perfect amount for me - no children, just my husband and myself. Love it!
this product saves so much time and effort to make jelly or jam
Excellent product, great price, easy to use. makes wonderful jams and jellies. I love this product. Even looks nice in my stainless kitchen. Highly recommended. I create different receipes than used in the book but I recommend using book receipes first to learn how this works.
