Wow, this looks great! I was just telling my mom I wanted to learn how to water bath can and she said she's switched to steam canning. Have you ever tried that? What do you think? Is it really easier than water bath canning?

The only advantage I see to the steam canners is the use of less water so it would heat up quicker and not be as heavy if you want to manually remove it from the heat at the end (like on an electric stove). However, my Ball Blue Book says steam canning is not recommended because "it does not maintain a steady flow of steam or an even temperature; it is impossible to know if the heat has penetrated the food properly", so I've never tried it. I've just stuck to the standby water bath canner. :)
