This is when you start your timer on how long you are going to cook the food or the recipe that you are following.

A: Stovetop pressure cookers can be used to can all types of foods. Stove-top pressure cookers allow canning low-acid foods, which have a ph greater than 4.6.

To destroy the bacteria foods must be processed at a temperature of at least 240F. Low acid foods include all vegetables, meats, poultry and seafood.
