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 pt. and 7 Qt. jars. 23 Qt. liquid capacity.

  • Preserves fruits, vegetables and meats fast and easy

Customer Questions & Answers

Is this canner a gasket free one?

Asked by: Lady
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.

Is this induction ready?

looking at using it on an induction cooktop
Asked by: Kristi
Yes it can be used on a "smooth top stove" according to the manufacturer's website. My own thoughts are it should actually produce more even heat and therefore heat the pot more evenly. I use a gas range myself and can a lot of garden produce that we grow here; I have even used this canner to pre make soup in concentrate and can it accordingly in quart jars, it works just fine. I got my money's worth from this canner the first season I owned it. This past August I canned twenty some odd jars of peach pie filling that I made up prior to canning. Now I only need make the pie crust and open a jar, fill the shell, top it with lattice and bake. It is just great too. It makes it so easy to make a home made pie, and I got those peaches for about fifteen bucks as I recall at farmer's market. You will not regret getting this canner. It works great and is completely safe to use, simply study and follow all the directions. Once you learn about it you will realize some of it is redundant, but that is ok, it is safe for you and your family. Everyone that eats your garden's bounty year around will appreciate the work you have put into it. Hopefully this helps to know of our experiences with this canner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 23 quart cannet Fast shipping. Great for medium tasks. Very good quality,, I have had no issues with it in about 15 uses... If you plan on doing lots of canning, I would recommend something bigger.. this only holds 7 quart jars... It is perfect for my needs.
