When summer crops start coming in, our staff likes to put up the harvest. Mother Earth News editor Rebecca Martin is especially impressed with the versatile Ball[R] 21-quart freshTECH Electric Canner + Multi-Cooker, in part because she can easily plug it into an outdoor electrical outlet and keep her kitchen dry and comfortable on hot days.
This unit is for water bath canning--preserving jams, jellies, pickles, and other high-acid foods. To setup, simply fill the basin with water, set it on top of the detachable base, plug in the base, and turn the easy-to-read dial to the "Canning" setting. (Rebecca adds the empty jars at this point so they'll preheat gently until she's ready to fill them.) The canner's tempered glass lid lets you see when the water has come to a rolling boil and is ready for the canning process. Eight pint jars or seven quart jars fit comfortably inside the pot.
When you've finished canning, you can use the exterior spigot to empty the boiling-hot water without having to hoist the entire canner. The spout also allows the canner to double as a beverage urn for dispensing hot tea, cider, or cocoa. Plus, the multipurpose pot can also be used to cook soups and stews, or to steam vegetables and seafood with the included steaming rack. The detachable base nests inside the pot for easy storage and cleaning.
