DALEVILLE, Ind., Nov. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jarden Home Brands, makers of
Ball® brand home canning products, today announced the first-of-its-kind
appliance revolutionizing the fresh preserving process, the Ball FreshTECH
Automatic Home Canning System. This unique countertop appliance takes the
guesswork out of the home canning process and enables consumers to
auto-preserve freshly made foods with the push of a button, using up to 30%
less time, 60% less energy (enough to power more than 100 average American
homes in a year) and 85% less water (enough for 14 average American homes in a
year) when compared to traditional water bath canning methods.

The innovative appliance simplifies the home canning process of preserving
your favorite fresh produce into jams, jellies, pickles, fruits, salsas,
tomatoes, sauces and more. With patent-pending SmartPRESERVE™ Technology, an
energy efficient hybrid technology that automatically senses and constantly
monitors time and temperature and adjusts for altitude, the appliance
eliminates the need for stove-top monitoring providing valuable time savings
for home canners. The appliance uses dual temperature sensors and seven
built-in safety features to ensure foods are processed at the correct
temperature every time for safe, shelf-stable storage for up to a year.

"As a chef, my passion is to reconnect Americans to fresh and seasonal food by
making things like cooking and canning less intimidating," said Bravo's Top
Chef judge and James Beard award-winning chef, Hugh Acheson. "I love that the
FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System makes it easier than ever for people
to preserve produce that can be used as the building blocks for thousands of
homemade meals made with fresh and seasonal foods."

Inspired by food enthusiasts, the FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System was
developed by the Fresh Preserving experts at Jarden Home Brands in
consultation with food scientists, preservation specialists and key opinion
leaders at leading universities and co-op extensions.

The FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System comes with its own set of tested
and approved recipes to guarantee the best result each time. Developed
specifically for use in the appliance, each recipe works with the appliance's
technology to ensure the proper pH and temperature are achieved to guarantee
the best result each time. The "Everyday Canning Recipe Booklet and Meal
Creations Guide" that accompanies each appliance contains a variety of the
most popular fresh preserving recipes as well as meal creations ideas that
show users how to enjoy their produce in delicious recipes all year long. In
addition, the website,www.FreshPreserving.com, will showcase an ongoing
collection of additional, free home canning recipes developed specifically for
the appliance, giving users even more ways to enjoy their FreshTECH Automatic
Home Canning System.

"The FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System is ideal for beginner home
canners looking to easily preserve their favorite seasonal produce from their
home gardens, farmers markets or CSA shares," said Chris Carlisle, Vice
President of Marketing at Jarden Home Brands. "With the holiday season upon
us, the appliance makes the perfect gift for the foodie on your list allowing
them to make jams, jellies, sauces and more to share with friends and family
year round."

The FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System is the second appliance developed
by Jarden Home Brands for the Ball home canning brand. Its first appliance,
the FreshTECH Automatic Jam and Jelly Maker, turns fresh fruits into delicious
jams and jellies in less than 30 minutes. The FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning
System is available online now at www.FreshPreservingStore.com and beginning
