Using the Aluminum Steam Canner is a safe method for canning high acid foods (pH 4.6 or lower). It is also a highly efficient method using considerably less water and energy than water bath canning. Using only two and a half quarts of water to produce the steam, the steam canner comes up to temperature much more quickly than water bath canning.
Our unique temperature indicator in the top of the lid takes the guesswork out of steam canning. Identify your zone based on your elevation. When the temperature indicator hits the green zone for your elevation begin timing for your recipe.
The Aluminum Steam Canner is perfect for the person who wants to can fruits, pickles, jam, and other high acid recipes, but doesn’t want to spend all day doing it!
