Fantastic product!
This is a MUST buy! It is awesome! I have made Kiwi Jam, Strawberry Jam, Strawberry Raspberry Jam, Blueberry Jam, etc. They all came out fantastic! Easy to use and easy to clean up! The only thing is that you have to buy the ""ball"" brand Pectin or it comes out very thin like pour-able fruit than Jam! I chose the sugar free mixture and it is great. I used ""Ideal"" sugar, it has ZERO calories and is sold by Netrition.com. Remember to increase the fruit amount to 3.5 cups of fruit when using the sugar free Stevia, Truvia, Slenda, etc

Very good for quick small-batch
I am an experienced canner, jams, pickles, sauces... I like this product. It is good for small-batch jam-making. The recipe calls for around 3-4 cups of crushed berries, which is a little less than 2 pounds.
It is quick and easy and fool-proof.
Only down-side is that I generally do not use space and money for a single-purpose product. But, I will use this one a lot. A hundred dollars isn't a whole lot, considering how much I will use it, but it is a lot for something that just does one job

Great product if making small batches
I am used to making cases of Pepper Jelly at a time. This seems to be time consuming since you are only making 4 jars at a time. The benefit you have is that it is idiot proof (which in some cases is very helpful). If you are wanting to make a small batch of something this product is for you. I had a coupon for 15% off and the product was on sale, so it was a great deal

Wonderful product
I love this jam/jelly maker. The hardest part was cleaning and chopping all the fruit!

Jammin & Jivin'...SO FUN
If you are looking for a way to cook small delicious batches of jam or jelly. This is your product. I've always shied from the canning process. So many steps, so much time and so much clean up. No Thanks. I was intrigued when I saw this product on Surlatable's website. I read the reviews and decided I would take the plunge (this company has an excellent return policy). We love berry jams and my first attempt was blackberry/boysenberry jam. I added one more minute to the cooking process as we prefer a firmer jam. It turned out delicious! The cleanup was incredibly easy. The entire process took me 1 hour the prep of the berries the longest but still easy. For the first time in over 40 years of cooking, I'll be gifting homemade jams and jellies this Christmas.

The results were perfect!
I have made jams and jellies for 40 plus years without one of these but this made it so easy. I used the berry recipe to make the blueberry jam and it came out perfect for spreading. Also, I used the reduced sugar recipe and did not use Ball pectin. It could have come out better. My only complaint is that the little cookbook that comes with it is in very small print. Just because small fonts are on a computer doesn't mean they should be used! I am serious! It is enough to keep me from buying things. Cookbooks need to be easy to read.

No more standing and stirring molten fruit and sugar over the hot stove!
I was skeptical at first so I waited for a sale to buy it. Now that Ive used it. iI wonder why I made jam the old fashioned way for so many years!
I've made several batches of peach, strawberry and blackberry jams so far. I have no problem with small batches.
I've been able to "troubleshoot" it by accidentally using "instant" pectin, a different brand of dry pectin, and added sugar at same time as fruit (not recommended) but all batches turned out "A Okay".
There are plenty more recipes for the jam maker on the Ball website too! If you love jam and homemade biscuits on a weekend morning, you need this!!
