Product Description

Product Description

Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for low-acid foods. Doubles as a boiling water canner for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and salsa in pint and half pint jars. Also handy as a large capacity pressure cooker. Constructed of warp-resistant, heavy-gauge aluminum for fast, even heating. Works on regular and smooth-top ranges. Deluxe pressure dial gauge registers the complete range of processing pressures. This precise measurement is especially important at higher altitudes. 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. Liquid capacity: 23 quarts (21.8 liters).

Amazon.com

The USDA recommends pressure canning as the only safe method for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats, and poultry. The Presto 23-quart pressure canner is more than adequate for any home canning needs. It's a professional-quality tool, made of heavy-duty aluminum, with stay-cool handles and a strong-lock steel lid. An accompanying rack fits down into the pot to keep jars up off the bottom, so that liquid can circulate underneath. And it can do double duty as a large pressure cooker. It's easy to cook healthfully with pressure cookers, since the food retains so much more of its nutrients and flavor.

The sturdy lid locks down during canning or cooking; an inner sealing ring keeps the steam in. In addition to a pop-up pressure indicator and a simple steam release mechanism, there is an overpressure plug that will let off steam if it builds up excessively. The pressure dial gauge gives an accurate reading so that pressure can be kept constant during canning. This pressure canner is also a cooker that's useful for weeknight dinners or for any meal that needs to come together quickly. An accompanying booklet contains more than 50 recipes, ranging from basic soup stocks to stews and pot roasts--even sweets like English Plum Pudding or Brown Bread! Tenderize lean cuts of beef or pork, or cook chicken, fish, or vegetables faster than you can in a microwave, and without losing moisture.

Nonabrasive cleansers are best for cleaning this aluminum pressure cooker, though occasional use of a fine metal polish will help the exterior keep its shine. The lid of the Presto 23-quart pressure canner is not immersible. In addition, the sealing ring should be removed after each use to allow cleaning of the inside rim of the lid. The dial gauge is delicate; detailed care instructions are found in the accompanying booklet. The vent pipe is simple to keep clean with a small brush or pipe cleaner, and both the air vent/cover lock and the overpressure plug are removable. The pressure cooker measures 14 inches in diameter (17 inches including handles) and 15-1/2 inches tall (including lid). Presto guarantees this pressure cooker with an extended 12-year warranty. A detailed instruction and recipe booklet is included; special safety issues that pertain to pressure cookers are clearly explained. --Garland Withers

There isn't much I can say besides that it does just what you expect it to do. It works, it seals fine, it keeps pressure fine. It works as a water bath canner just fine. Really, it does what it needs to do. I've put up about 300 cans so far and it's doing just fine. (from applesauce to grape juice to green beans to venison)
My sister got the All American Canner and we canned side by side a lot so we could compare the two. Here's what we noticed the difference are:

All American is a heavier pot. She can make applesauce in hers w/o burning the bottom (I burned mine), but I can use the Presto one on my glass top oven which she can't do with her All American because of how heavy it is.

The All american has a bit of a domed lid which means she can fit one more can in hers than I can. Somehow, since the middle is higher, we had an instance where hers was able to fit the combinations of stacked jars and my Presto wasn't.

The All American is a weighted gauge canner, while this Presto one is a dial gauge canner. In my estimation, that means the All American needs less babysitting than the Presto. I had to keep adjusting the heat under my Presto to make sure I wasn't getting it too high or letting it fall too low. She could put her weight on the canner and walk away knowing it would stay at 10 lbs w/o much fuss.

And finally, the All American has a handle on the top that makes transporting it much easier.

All that being said: they canned exactly the same. Every time we canned side by side, the time to bring them up to pressure, the time to can, and the time to bring them back down took exactly the same amount of time.

I had to go with the Presto because of my glass top range. I like the details about the All American better, but like I said, this one works perfectly.

Never had a canner before so took a while to decide on which one to buy. I really think this was a great choice. The canner works perfectly and such a joy to be able to can all my vegetables from the garden. I highly recommend this as a First Canner Purchase. It's not too big and not too small for a beginner.

I purchased this pressure canner after having one of the original canners from many years ago. This is so easy to use - lighter, easier to close, easy to read gauge. I love the jar support- it is so much better than the old wire basket. Each jar is firmly supported. No more wobbling. This canner is absolutely great!

We needed a pressure cooker that would work on our glass top stove. Not many of them do so we were very happy when we found this one...It's a GREAT pressure cooker and we love it! :)

I'll let the other reviewers speak for the merits of this canner. I just wanted to chime in with something...

If anyone wants a 3-piece weighted rocker for this canner, it is available from Presto's website as a replacement part for the model 01745 canner. That model is/was sold by WalMart and does not have a pressure gauge. Instead, its rocker is a 3-piece unit that can be set to 5, 10 and 15lbs of pressure. I have confirmed with Presto that it will fit this canner.

I have two Presto canners and I love them but I didn't used to.

Babysitting the dial gauge is a pain and I haven't canned enough years to know what stove setting holds the pressure steady at the right weight. After researching, however, and as a previous reviewer mentioned, you can order a three piece weighted gauge that fits these canners for $15 or less if you do a web search for model #50332. Not only can you confirm this with Presto's customer service but you can order one and confirm it yourself with the dial gauge.

So now I have the weighted rockers for 5/10/15 lbs (the 10 lb is actually weighted for the new recommendation of canning at 10.5 lbs)I don't have to keep coming back to check the pressure every 5 minutes. If it's too low I'll hear it stop and I don't have to worry about over cooking it because the rocker keeps it from going too high.

The two reasons I give this product 4 stars is because I believe that Presto SHOULD REALLY be including the three piece rocker with it. It would make it a premium canner at a much lower price than others. Also, I have concerns about cooking foods in aluminum pans, especially if your cooking at the high pressure temps, but it's simply not relevant to me as I don't cook with it for this reason, just can.

This product was recommended to me by someone who also uses a Presto pressure canner. I have been very plesed with the product. It was delivered in a timely manner. Instructions are included with the product that are easy to follow. The instruction manual also includes directions for canning specific fruits and vegetables, information about canning utensils and proper canning supplies. This size canner will process a 7 quart volume at a time. For a novis canner like myself this product was a perfect choice.

I just received my unit and although I have not used the unit, I have read the book completely and called presto and they say there's no need to have the gauge checked. If it's new, it's ready go to, just follow the cleaning instructions on page 6 and 7 of the book. They also state there's no reason to buy another 15lb rocker because it comes with one. I ordered the extra rocker for $12 but the unit came last night and has a 15lb rocker in it. Pressure regulator would be the better more proper term, not rocker. I also work in the air pressure industry for a living and we rarely test our gauges unless something obvious is happening and we have variable testing at our facility that goes from 10psi to 300 psi, which that kind of pressure can be dangerous. So I'm not sure why people think they need to get their gauge tested. Even if the gauge is faulty, the rocker is going to rock at 15lbs and never let the pot get higher than this. Additionally, the books states there is a vent pipe (page4) is the "primary pressure relief valve and will release pressure in excess of 15 pounds. The pressure regulator sits loosely on the vent pipe." That's a quote. So this unit is designed to be at 15 lbs or below which the pot can handle. I'm not sure why anyone would blow the lid off unless they rolled their rubber ring, their ring was old or not seated properly or the top was not locked. Again, I haven't used the unit yet, and will follow up soon with a review on that, but from my perspective, I'm going to can tomatoes over the next couple of days and that is 11 lbs of pressure which means I will need my gauge and my rocker should never rock. I have to play with the heat to find where my stove dial holds the pot at 11 lbs and make sure I never see the pressure regulator move or that means the pot has reached 15 lbs.Read more ›
