The Simsco Canning Factory can be loaded with produce and dairy ingredients, then used to convert them into boxes of canned and processed products, such as boxes of jars of jam, canned vegetables, wheels of cheese and more. It looks like the Cupcake Factory, but is industrial safety yellow.

The Canning Factory pulls all of its ingredient requirements from its own inventory, not your sim's, so you need to load it first. This is meant to allow you to better decide what portion of that huge haul of apples goes toward fruit, which part toward Jam, and which part gets saved for brewing into a 'fizzy' or some other use.

You need to put the ingredients into the machine before you can make the recipes with the machine. You can Open the inventory like a refrigerator and drag things into it, you can drag and drop items onto the machine, or you can use the Load ingredients option with a dialog.

Select Bulk Food Processing, and choose one of the recipes for which you have ingredients. The machine will chug and flash and belch smoke in a remarkably steampunk way, and your box of processed food will come rolling down the conveyor belt. Your sim will wait until it is done then pick up the box and look for a surface or a shelf to place it on.

You need to clean the machine about every 6 uses. This is the same as the Cupcake Factory for now.

MREs: A box of vacuum-packed food with a built-in self-heating element. You can open it up, and you get a plate of hot food in your inventory (same recipe lists as the Delicioso spell from Realm of Magic).

Sugar: The factory can convert 6 fruit into a large, commercial-sized sack of sugar, which can be opened to get 6 small bags of sugar that can be used in recipes.

Canned vegetables and Dried Spices: You can use the canned ingredient directly in recipes (at least that's the goal...), or you can Open it Up and get actual ingredient back to use.

Canned Fishcake: A mixed, processed fish cake in the shape of a fish. It can be used in any recipe that calls for 'any fish', such as Fish Tacos, or even Fish on a Stick.
