Replace your old, stovetop water bath canner with the Ball 21 qt freshet electric water bath canner + multi-cooker, which can be used anywhere there's a power outlet. Not only is this electric water bath canner 20% more energy efficient than traditional stovetop methods for canning, you'll free up valuable space on your cooktop for other cooking tasks. This canner accommodates large batch canning, fitting 7 qt jars or 8 pt jars comfortably at one time. The ingenious drain spout on the exterior allows you to drain directly into the sink or empty water into a smaller container - no need to worry about moving gallons of hot water at the end of the canning process. The drain spout also enables this item to be used as an electric beverage urn, ideal for dispensing hot tea, cider or cocoa at your next party.
