A good kettle for jellies, jams and marmalades is a must. With this easy-to-clean model, preserves can be made in large batches.
This type of pressure-canning appliance is brilliant for low-acid food (like most vegetables and meat), which needs to be heated to a higher temperature in order to keep bacteria at bay.
This is a great and inexpensive starter kit for those who are just learning how to can.
Sturdy and effortless — that's what I love about these tongs. They fit in your hands comfortably and jars lift up with ease.
This sensational nine-tray food dehydrator is fully automated for total control over the drying process. The possibilities are endless with this machine!
This great all-inclusive kit comes with funnel, tongs, bubble remover — all the basic tools needed for canning. Perfect for those just starting out learning how to can.
Straining fruit and vegetables for purees and soups straight into a jar is so easy with this piece of equipment. Love the wooded pestle!

My bowl for making ice cream takes up a lot of the room in the freezer, so what I really like about the Philips Delizia is that the small chilling disc can be frozen overnight while taking up minimal space. Ice cream can be made in a plethora of flavors without much fuss or planning ahead.
This durable canning funnel will last you for years. As it is made of stainless steel, it will not dent like the aluminum types do.
I love the basket design of this stainless steel canning rack for easy lifting. And the extra rings make sure that the jelly jars do not slip through!
