This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in November of 2018. A jam pan might sound like the next hottest thing in musical instruments, but these implements are actually for making scrumptious preserves with as little hassle as possible. Our selection includes those that heat evenly and pour easily for smooth cooking and great finished products. And since we know that your time is valuable, we've included some that are perfectly safe for your dishwasher. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best jam pan on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 12, 2018:

Selected the Demeyere Resto and Kilner 8.5 Quart as top selections for a wide range of individuals, from casual cooks to those who are accomplished jam makers. Investigated and added copper models, including the Mauviel and Matfer models, despite claims that cooking jam in these pans leads to ingestion of the metal, as the concrete evidence to support this assertion is lacking.
