I'd never done any canning until I bought this kit. It's got everything you need, including an excellent book, (large size, 124 pp.), with lots of recipes as well as general do's and don't's.

I used it for the first time two weeks ago and am enjoying the pickled mix of cauliflower, carrots, onions, and bell peppers I made. If a middle aged IT guy can do it, anyone can ! My wife likes them too ;)

One tip - canning salt means plain salt, no Iodine or anticaking ingredients. Shopping around, this probably isn't hard to come by. I was in a hurry, so bought an expensive brand of kosher salt at the local Safeway.

Second tip - there is a lot of info on water bath canning on the web.

My husband's family cans every year...but we have never done it. So this year I am heading down to a "pick-your-own" farm with my husband and 5 daughters in search of some good old fashioned family fun! This kit was exactly what I needed...not only comes with everything (except a few extra jars and the fruit) but also gives me a variety of recipes to try! We used the coupons right away at Walmart to get the other few items we needed.

***Also, this item was shipped and arrived so quickly I was shocked... unfortunately, it was damaged and I was afraid I couldn't get a replacement on time. Uncle Joe's IMMEDIATELY shipped a new one. Their customer service is excellent. Second to NONE!

This is the only canning system I would ever use. Its easy and less dangerous then the pressure canners. I've canned everthing from homemade spaghetti sauce to jams and vegetables. They keep very well and taste great even months later. Just follow the simple instructions in the manuel and your favourite recipes and you have a great thing going. Your produce in the jars looks great makes for wonderful gifts at Christmas time too!

Nice assortment of tools for beginner or someone who wants to do simple canning of jams, jellies, applesauce, etc. Pot and rack are sturdy, large burner is needed to support the pot when filled with water. Included tools help simplyfy basic canning tasks. Recipe book has wonderful, simple canning recipes.

Water bath is our first stage in learning to can. With that, we can preserve tomatoes and sauces, fruit, jellies, and pickles. Many of the skills will be used again when we add pressure canning later. This was a complete kit, and the included book covers not only water bath but pressure canning and dehydration. After adding a dozen quart and a dozen pint, with the included jars we are ready for our first year project with the children. All items appear to be of good quality, and it was quick to arrive.

This was my first time to make jam and it turned out fantastic. My friend is already on his second jar.
Don't leave the jar holder in the water. Mine oxidized. It still works, just not as shiny. Now I am going to try pickling some peppers.

I bought the item for a Christmas present and my son loves it. It is exactly what he was looking for. Perfect size of pot, instructions on canning are clear and utensils are exactly what he needed.

First time I've canned in years, and I had to replace the equipment I used to have. This kit enabled me to do that pretty much all at once, since it does have all you really need for water-bath canning. Would rather it came with quart jars instead of pints, but that's just a personal preference. The included Ball Blue Book of Preserving is a fantastic help, especially because home-canning practices have changed so much due to updated food safety information since I last canned years ago. The book includes sections on many other kinds of preserving besides canning, and has a number of interesting recipes I plan to try. All in all this kit is a really good value.
