This Week at Aldi: The Ad for August 22, 2018

Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.

This week’s theme includes home canning equipment, bathroom products, hair-styling accessories, and a small selection of kitchen items.

The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:

Crofton 21.5-Qt. Canner With Rack


  • Crofton 21.5-Qt. Canner With Rack, $17.99. It’s prime season for preserving tomatoes, peaches, and more from your garden or farmers market. If you’ve been wanting to learn how to can food using a water bath canner, Aldi can help you get started without spending a lot of money. Includes canner, jar rack, and lid. You also can purchase a Ball 12-Pack of Regular Mouth Pint Canning Jars for $7.99 or a Ball 12-Pack of Wide Mouth Quart Canning Jars for $9.99. In addition, you can buy a Crofton Canning Utensil Set for $4.99 that appears to include a funnel, jar lifter, jar wrench, and bubble remover. I recently purchased a Granite-Ware canning set that includes everything listed here except for jars, and I spent $40. I’ve never seen Aldi sell canning supplies before, or I might have waited for this deal.
