It’s never been easier to make delectable fresh fruit preserves at home. The Ball® FreshTECH™ Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker is a simple, user-friendly way to make jam or jelly in just 30 minutes with the push of a couple of buttons. Using fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries, apples or peaches, you can easily whip up everything from old-fashioned jam to gourmet apple butter. Feel free to be creative and bold -- the FreshTECH allows you to make small batches, so you can try out new recipes or experiment with old ones without having to commit to traditional time-consuming, large-batch canning methods. Whether you’re new to home canning or a seasoned expert, the FreshTECH promises consistently delicious results. Its unique SmartStir™ technology stirs ingredients as they cook, and its automatic timer alerts cooks to each phase of the process, so there’s no guesswork involved. Once cooking is complete, you can enjoy your creation immediately, or decide whether to freeze or preserve your jam to enjoy later. The pot’s nonstick interior makes for easy cleanup between batches, and the pot, glass lid and stirring paddle are all dishwasher safe.

  • Jam & Jelly Maker

    This has been the best product I have used in quite awhile. I have been extremely please with the finished products every time I have used it. I have made plum jelly, blackberry jelly, peach jam, strawberry jam and all have turned out perfect. I have followed the recipes that came with the machine exactly. I like that I don't have to stand over the hot stove and stir and hope I process it just right, with this machine there is no guess work it cuts off just at the right time. I love it.

    I recommend this product.

  • Automatic Jam & Jelly Maker

    This is a great item to have for anyone who loves fresh jelly or jam. I do have a few things I dont like. Each batch is very small and then you have to wait 30min's between batches. Other than that this is a great item to own.

    I recommend this product.

  • Better than sliced bread

    I wasn't sure how well this would work and to my great pleasure, it is perfect. It makes the process so easy. No stiring over a hot stove and for the most part no foam to skim. It is amazing.

  • Great option

    I used the jam and jelly maker for the first time today. I really like it; just wish it could make a bigger batch - especially for those of us with limited abilities.

  • Pectin

    Getting the pectin just right has always been a problem for me. More often than not, I've ended up with syrup not jam. I've not doubled the recipe, I've decided weather and humidity must play a part in getting it right. I've followed the steps according to the package instructions, set a spoon on an ice cube to test etc. This jam maker is so easy to use and simple cleanup. One item I'm glad I purchased.

  • Larger Unit for Larger Recipe

    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.

  • I purchased three for Christmas.

    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 recommend this product.

  • Great Fun

    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!

  • 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

  • Small Quantity

    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!

  • Jam and jelly maker is fun.

    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.

  • 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!

  • Jam and Jelly Maker

    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.

    I recommend this product.
