Customer Reviews

I bought this as a gift for my mother, she loves it.
L. Schrum
It's easy to use with very detailed and easy to follow instructions & recipes, and it's a breeze to clean.

I found it much easier than standing over the stove while stirring the jam myself.

AMAZING! Is what I would call this jam and jelly maker. I have to say I was a little disappointed when I couldn't use my recipes but once I adjusted my recipes to the principle recipes provided, I have outstanding results! Peach Jam can be made into to peach lavender with just a few adjustments. Pear jam can even more easily be made into pear rosemary jam by just adding a bit of rosemary. Unfortunately the strawberry season is over otherwise I would try my strawberry margarita twist on their strawberry jam.

Even better, little mess and no burns! I love this machine, I can't wait to see how the fair judges rate the jams and jellies. Since posting this review, I won Grand Champion at the county fair for the raspberry jam. Is this cheating???

Since posting this review, I have used the machine many, many times and have adapted these recipes that I want to share.

As with the strawberry jam options in the recipe booklet, make other options. Just follow the basic recipe and make the adjustments from your favorite recipies. I generally make the low sugar option:

Peach Lavendar Jam:

Steap 2 Tbls. lavendar buds for 20 minutes in 1.3 cup boiling water. Drain and reserve water (and half the buds, if desired). I use a coffee filter to strain. Put the reserved water (and buds) into the maker when you add the peaches.

Peach Amaretto Jam:

Add 2 Tbls. of Amaretto liquor after the peach jam after the machine has signaled that the jam is complete.

Pear Rosemary:

Add 2 tsp. finely chopped rosemary when adding the pears to the machine. I have also put in one cup of honey in place of one cup of sugar, which gives the result more like the stove top version. The gel is slightly softer, but still yummy.

I am a big sucker for kitchen gadgets. I just love them. Unfortunately, we don't have unlimited storage space (who does?) and so if I get a new gadget, an old one has to go, and that means the new one better deliver. I got this (and donated an old crock-pot to my son's school) because I have recently started preserving, and wanted to see if it really made the jam process easier. I think it does! And I think you will too!

Here are the differences in processes between the first time I made jam without the machine, and then with the machine:

- Mash up fruit.
- Put in pan.
- Stir in pectin and then sugar.
- Watch like a hawk to make sure mixture doesn't boil over.
- Mixture boils over anyway. Oops.
- Spend 15 minutes cleaning up red-hot, sticky strawberry jam from all over the stovetop. Burn self. Curse loudly. Don't get all the jam cleaned up, bits of sticky jam will adhere to things that come near the stove for several days afterward.
- Put jam back on stove. Near boil-overs happen several more times, despite low heat on burner. Skim foam. Skim foam. Skim foam. Finally jam is at gelling point.
- Process jam in jars.
- Spend 20 minutes soaking and scrubbing jam-making pot that has crusty, sticky, scummy jam on it. Break fingernails. Curse loudly.

- Mash up fruit.
- Put in maker. Sprinkle pectin on top.
- Turn on machine. Wait for four-minute beep. Add sugar.
- Go watch Breaking Bad on DVR for 17 minutes.
- Jam maker beeps, jam is done! Skim small amount of foam.
- Process jam in jars.
- Pan, lid and stirrer from jam maker clean up in about 5 minutes.

See? So much easier. Much less cursing.

Bought the FreshTECH jam & jelly maker yesterday at a brick and mortar store that had it on sale for $79. I was convinced by the unanimous five-star reviews on Amazon. I'm going to ruin this product's perfect record, though. I was disappointed upon opening the box and carefully looking for documentation. There was none. Zero. Zilch. Not even how to assemble the lid, which luckily wasn't that difficult. But you do need some basic instructions to know how to use the product. Half a star off for that. I found the web site freshpreserving.com listed on the box, so was able to get basic instructions and recipes there, but buyers shouldn't have to do that.

The most serious issue for my use, though, is the batch size and the instructions to "process immediately" after ladling into jars. This is OK for freezer jams/jellies and for those that will only be refrigerated. But if you want to make canned jams, which IMHO are much more convenient as gifts, then processing only four cups at a time in a large hot-water bath canner is very inefficient. Another half star off for that. I'll probably only use it for freezer or refrigerator jams from now on, going back to the often painful process of cooking jam on the stovetop for canning.

Other than that, no complaints. The jams produced were excellent. I used Ball's "RealFruit Low or No-Sugar Needed Pectin," even though the documentation I downloaded doesn't specify which RealFruit pectin to use (there are several choices). Using one cup sugar and one cup no-calorie sweetener (maltodextrin/sucralose) per batch, wild blackberry jam tastes pretty much like wild blackberries.

UPDATE: I'm updating my review from four to five stars, same as all the other reviewers (so far).
