Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff Good solid well made pressure canner
This is a good solid well made pressure canner. It has nice arrow markings on the lid and one handle to help you align the lid properly, which is important because that lid is large and heavy. It is a very nice forging or casting, not sure which, with very good machine work to finish it off nicely. The pressure gauge is easy enough to read, the handles are nice plastic which helps to limit heat. It has a nice heavy section that is machined thicker, meaning they left more heavy aluminum in the center on the bottom just the right size for a large burner on a stovetop. The outer finish is nicely polished making it easier to clean up when the day is done. I have canned quite a bit of stuff with this canner now, with no problems. It takes some time canning with it to learn where to set the power on the burner to maintain the pressure you want and once learned it is easy to maintain a steady pressure, though at first it seemed I could not get it right.
The difference I see between this canner and those costing over twice as much money, this canner has a gasket at the top to make a proper seal. The other brand has a smooth machined no gasket mating surface and several screw down clamps to make the seal. That canner also has a higher quality gauge too, which is maybe meaningless, this one may last forever too. That other canner is made in Wisconsin, this one is made in Asia. Having said that, this is a good canner, but not the best one you can buy, however, at this price level, this is far better than the others available, making this one a good buy.

It was a much lighter weight than my old one. The price was better than anywhere I checked. Best of all it works great!! Thanks, Home Depot

Easy to use, good instructions for first time users. We'll save LOTS of $$ by canning.

I'm so glad I ordered this pressure canner. I replaced an older steel pressure canner that was over 50 years old and still worked great but was just too heavy for me to continue lifting (it was larger too). I no longer have to ask for help in handling it. I plan to use it for an meal too.
