DALEVILLE, Ind.-Jarden's Ball brand has introduced the Ball FreshTECH Automatic Home Canning System, a countertop appliance that enables consumers to automatically preserve fresh food with the push of a button.

The system uses SmartPRESERVE Technology, an energy-efficient and hybrid technology that senses and constantly monitors time and temperature. This enables canning to take place without the need for stove-top monitoring. It also uses dual temperature sensors and seven built-in safety features to ensure that foods are processed at the correct temperature, for safe, shelf-stable storage for up to a year.

The FreshTECH was recently demonstrated at Haven's Kitchen in New York City by Hugh Acheson, a judge on the Bravo network series "Top Chef" and a James Beard Award-winning chef. "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," Acheson said.
