The only thing better than a long, hot and sunny summer filled with delicious meals based around the fresh fruits and vegetables harvested from your garden or purchased at the local farmers market is getting to enjoy that same delectable bounty all year long. With this Ball® 21-qt. Collection Elite® Canner and Rack, preserving the tempting taste of summer has gotten a little bit easier. Made of durable 18/10 stainless steel and triple thick aluminum, this water bath canner will conduct heat evenly and efficiently on both gas and electric stoves. The canner's generous 21-quart capacity has plenty of room for you to load it up with jars of all sizes, filled with everything from stewed tomatoes and lightly boiled green beans to spicy chipotle chili and pickled beets. Monitor your jars as they process by peering through the tempered glass lid. This water bath canned also comes with a corrosion-resistant chrome-plated rack that will last through season after season of canning. Healthier than some commercially bought shelf-stable items and a lot more fun, home canning is a time-honored tradition that your family can enjoy year after year, especially with this durable, long-lasting water bath canner that will become every bit as much a valued family heirloom as the recipes you create in it.

  • Excellent canner!

    Solidly built, but not too heavy. I'm a small person, 4'11", but I can still lift this with water in it from sink to stove without trouble. This hasn't rusted or warped. Works GREAT on a flat-topped glass stove. The bottom is flat as can be. Highly recommended!

    I recommend this product.

  • Ball canning pot a bust!

    I have been canning for 30 yrs. Canning pot bottom rusted after first use, where rack touched. Can't remove rust. Also rack has rust at every solder point. Do not buy this product. I'm now back to using my old canning pot. Didn't think Ball would make such a disappointing product.

    I haven't preserved anything in about 20 years. My water bath canner is VERY old (and smaller). Taking up preserving to be more nutritionally conscious and to save money on our grocery bill as we approach retirement. This canner is GREAT! It's also the perfect size for brining out turkey for Thanksgiving...a double benefit. I am very happy with this purchase.

    I recommend this product.

  • An unexpected purchase exceeded expectations

    Our stove/oven died toward the end of canning season and after doing much homework we purchased a glass flat-top -- only to discover my old faithful enamel canner could not be used. I was unhappy but decided to bite the bullet and buy from your site believing the pot would be safe for the stove. It arrived on Thursday, October 23. The quality was impressive and I couldn't wait to use it so I dove in after work and made a triple batch of apple jam. The pot was fantastic, and I couldn't be happier. BTW, my daughter informed me the next day that 10/23 was National Canning Day! (and that I was a dork to love a pot so much).

    I recommend this product.

  • The thing rusts

    The first time we used it there were rust stains on the bottom of the pot. They are extremely difficult to remove.

  • Love my canner

    I have used my water bath canner several times since purchase and am very satisfied with it. The clear vented top makes it easy to monitor the boiling stages and to adjust heat settings without having to lift the lid, I love that. I can also use it on my flat top ceramic induction stove and it conducts an even heat which is recommended by the manufacturer. I can a lot, both water bath and pressure canning. This is the best water bath canner I have used and I was able to disposed of 3 very used and worn out previous models. Happy canning y'all!

    I recommend this product.
