Canning is an economical way to preserve fresh quality foods at home while retaining their important vitamins and nutrients. The right equipment is essential to ensure a quality product and Granite Ware offers all the basics for blanching produce for the freezer or for cold pack canning.
Granite Ware water-bath canners have been the standard for canning for over 100 years. The stepped design of our canners produces more even heat by allowing more boiling water contact with the top half of the jars. Used to elevate food temperature above 212-degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or more, which kills all the bacteria found in high acid fruits and vegetables. The water-bath canner creates a vacuum seal when the jars cool, sealing out air and bacteria.
Granite Ware Canners come in multiple sizes to fit your needs: 12-quart canner (#0706) that holds 7 one-pint jars; 21.5-quart canner (#0707) that holds 7 one-quart jars or 9 one-pint jars or 12 half-pint jars; 33-quart canner (#0709) that holds 9 one-quart jars or 14 one-pint jars or 17 half-pint jars.

Originally founded in 1871, Columbian Home Products is the oldest cookware manufacturer in the U.S., famous for producing Porcelain on Steel cookware. The Columbian Home Products name was taken from the Columbian Exposition World Fair in Chicago in 1893 where we won the cookware innovation award for our naturally non-stick enameling process. We have been producing Granite Ware cookware in our Terre Haute, IN facility since 1901.
Granite Ware has a carbon steel core for strength, conductivity and superior heat distribution. Porcelain is fused to the steel at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit producing a non-porous, inert glass surface that is naturally non-stick. There are no PTFE’s, PFOA’s or any other chemicals to change the taste, color or nutritional value of the food.
