Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods.
- A must have for canning vegetables, meats, and fish.
- The easy-to-read gauge automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures.
- Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build up only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until pressure is safely reduced.
- This Presto Pressure Canner also doubles as water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and salsas.
- Constructed of extra-strong, warp-resistant aluminum and suitable for use on regular and smooth-top ranges. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction and recipe book.
- The three piece regulator allows you to convert the canner to a weighted gauge canner and set the pressure at 10psi which is used for most canning recipes at sea level. This allows you to leave the canner unsupervised without fear of the pressure going higher than needed.
- These cannot be used on induction cooktops and are not recommended for flat/glass stovetops. In the case of the latter, the main reason for the restriction is that a full pressure canner with bottles and produce is very heavy and can cause the cooktop to crack. You may check the weight rating of your cooktop with the manufacturer to satisfy yourself that it can withstand heavy weights. Otherwise, it is recommended that you use a small single gas burner.

NOTES REGARDING GAS BURNERS
The issue is with any burner, gas or electric, that has a maximum BTU rating over 12,000 BTU's.
The instruction manual states:
To prevent damage to the pressure canner, do not use
on an outdoor LP gas burner or gas range over 12,000
BTU’s. A high BTU burner will soften the canner causing the
bottom to warp. It may also result in property damage
and/or personal injury.
Smaller portable gas burners are acceptable as long as the maximum BTU rating is less than 12,000 BTU's. The problem with the higher BTUs gas stoves (like those often used as oil turkey fryers) occurs when they can not be adjusted to a low enough heat setting to maintain the correct pressure in the canner. Yes, the pressure regulator will rock to vent excess pressure once 15 pounds is present in the canner, but if the heat can not be adjusted to maintain a slow gentle rocking motion then there is a real chance that the canner will warp. If the gas stove is such that it can be adjusted to maintain pressure without the pressure regulator rocking wildly, and if the canner is not left unattended then there should be no problem.
