The price of a canner (includes a new motor) is $1,295.00 plus freight, which ranges anywhere from $25.00 to $55.00 depending upon the area in which you live. All machines are sent FedEx Ground unless you are in Alaska or Hawaii. Residents of Canada or any other foreign country must pay all exporting/importing fees. Idaho residents must pay sales tax.


Our preferred payment is by check. We can invoice wards and stakes at the time of shipment. The ward or stake then has 30 days to pay. If you are an individual or group purchasing a canner, we suggest you either prepay or place a credit card on file and then be invoiced and pay within 90 days otherwise the invoice will be applied to the credit card with the 3% processing fee.
