Ball freshTECH Jam and Jelly Maker FTJM-AU-15-01 5 "Perfect for small batches" Randy 25 September 2018 I love this! Sure, you can make a small batch of jam on the stovetop, but that means lots of standing in the heat and stirring when you could be doing other tasks instead. There are only two of us, so I don’t need to make huge quantities of jam. This is perfect. I get four jars, so we never get tired of a particular flavor. The little recipe book gives you the basics, and it’s easy to come up with your own recipes after, using the measurements in the book. I recently experimented to make a fig/apple jam that is excellent. Definitely worth the money for me.
