And we can help. Templeton’s is your source in Newfoundland for tried-and-true canners,
cans, and—new this year—pressure canners.
Why is a paint, wallpaper, and flooring company in the canning business? Because
cans and canning are connected to our long roots in Newfoundland….
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Robert Templeton and several other St. John’s
merchants collaborated on creating a factory that could safely can lobster in a
modern and hygienic way. They set up shop in what is reputedly the first reinforced
concrete building in St. John’s (on Plank Road). The canning factory operated from
1872 to 1936, and finally closed because of a widespread failure of the Newfoundland
But industry aside, many people still wanted to can. So Templeton’s remained in
the business, selling canners and related products for domestic canning of moose,
seal, and rabbit.
Today, Templeton’s is one of the few places in North America where those who can
will find canners, cans, and repair parts.
We sell the dependable Ives-Way hand-cranked canner (600 model), manufactured in
Illinois. It comes complete with an instruction sheet and information about how
to can fish and shellfish (also available for download here).
Ives-Way canners are shipped unassembled—but we will assemble yours at no charge,
if you request it.
Please contact us for current pricing and shipping costs.
Templeton’s sells the following replacement parts for the Model 600 Ives-Way canner.

Please contact us for current pricing of replacement parts, and
our rates for servicing your canning machine.
We sell 1-pound gold-lacquered steel cans in cases of 24, lids included. (They use
the 404 chuck.)
The canning process isn’t completed until the heat’s applied—and the quickest and
safest way to do that is with a pressure cooker.
Templeton’s now sells the All-American Pressure Cooker/Canner, made of heavy cast
aluminum, which is perfect for treating your canned meat once the lid has been sealed.
