Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Pressure canning is the only canning method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats and fish. The easy to read dial gauge automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures. Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until the pressure is safely reduced. Presto pressure canners also double as water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, pickles and salsas. Canners are constructed of extra strong, warp-resistant aluminum and are suitable for use on regular and smooth-top ranges. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction and recipe book. Capacity: 24 half-pints, 20 pints and 7 Qt. jars. 23 Qt. liquid capacity.

  • Preserves fruits, vegetables and meats fast and easy

  • Capacity: 24 half-pints, 20 pints, or 7 Qt.
  • Extra strong, warp-resistant aluminum for fast, even heating

Answer: 
No this one has a gasket, but I found it readily available at local hardware stores. They actually stock this gasket; the owners manual that came with it lists part numbers for common replacement parts, gasket being one of them.

Answer: 
The gauge goes to 20 PSI and then says danger above that number. I have seen recipes at 20 only rarely, so I would think this one goes high enough for anything you want to can.

Answer: 
It can be used on a glass top range, but I have read that it is advised not to do so. It can scratch the top of the glass. It is extremely heavy to put on a glass top. I would advise not doing it.

Answer: 
The only reason you would not be able to is if the diameter of your pot is larger than any of your burners.
I was the appliance manager at a HD before retiring and the information from manufacturers that I received is that overlapping the cooking areas may cause the glass outside of the circle to overheat and crack. But most of the new glass tops have a very large burner for canning, I can on mine

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 26, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 23 Qt Aluminum Presto Pressure Cooker 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 November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for what we had in mind. Easy to use, good instructions for first time users. We'll save LOTS of $$ by canning. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love, Love, Love it My husband has always wanted to make different soups and can them. I got this for him and he went crazy canning...This is a super canner. November 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love this life saver. i wish i got it way before i got the water bath canner. love this life saver. i wish i got it way before i got the water bath canner. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect 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. July 16, 2013
