Preparing and preserving healthy, nutritious meals at home is easy and greatly beneficial. With today’s supermarkets offering increasingly expensive and preservative-packed foods, there’s never been a better time to take matters into your own hands (and kitchen) by exploring all the possibilities that home canning has to offer.
All you need to begin your home canning journey is an understanding of the basic steps for preparation of your chosen canning method, and the right equipment. Starting in May 2023, Zavor will be introducing three solutions for anyone interested in preserving healthy meals at home – the 6-Piece Canning Kit, the 7-Piece Canning Kit, and the DUO 8-Piece Pressure Canning Set, all of which can be used for both home canning methods – water bath canning and pressure canning.
The DUO 8-Piece Pressure Canning Set comes with a DUO 10 Qt. pressure cooker, a canning rack that comfortably holds up to 4 1-quart jars, a wide-mouth funnel, ladle, jar lifter, jar wrench, tongs, and a 3-in-1 tool that can be used as a magnetic lid lifter, bubble remover, and headspace measurer. This new canning set is the perfect introductory set for anyone who is interested in pressure canning but doesn’t have the need (or space) for an independent, bulky pressure canner.
The DUO 8-Piece Canning Set can be used to do both water bath canning and pressure canning. Both canning methods offer convenient, money-saving benefits, but only pressure canning allows you to safely preserve any type of food including high-acid foods like fruits, jams, and pickles, as well as low-acid foods like vegetables, meats, and seafood.
Another added benefit of the DUO 8-Piece Canning Set is that the DUO 10Qt. pressure cooker included in the set can also be used independently of the canning tools to cook a variety of meals quickly and healthfully. Pressure cookers help prepare foods up to 3 times faster than traditional cooking methods while maintaining vitamins and nutrients.
Zavor’s 6-Piece and 7-Piece Home Canning Kits are perfect for anyone who already has a canner (or one of Zavor’s 10 Qt. or 12.7 Qt. pressure cookers) at home. The 6-Piece Canning Kit includes a wide-mouth funnel, ladle, jar lifter, jar wrench, tongs, and a 3-in-1 tool that can be used as a magnetic lid lifter, bubble remover, and headspace measurer. The 7-Piece Canning Kit includes all the same tools as the 6-Piece Canning Kit plus a canning rack that comfortably holds up to 4 1-quart jars. Both kits and the DUO 8-Piece Canning Set include a digital recipe book with over 30 delicious pressure canning creations.
The Zavor 6-Piece Home Canning Kit retails for $24.99, the 7-Piece Home Canning Kit retails for $34.95, and the DUO 8-Piece Pressure Canning Set retails for $189.95. For more information on Zavor’s line of pressure cookers, small electrics, and more please visit www.zavoramerica.com.
