If you have an older pressure cooker, bought one on e-bay, or got it from grandma, this is the part that makes it work. The kit contains the gasket ring for the lid, and the rubber safety blow-out. It takes some time to get the ring to seat in place, and it will look like the new ring is way too big, but it is the correct one. Just keep working it into place until all of it seats in the grove. Some cooking oil helps. It must be pushed all the way down into the grove. After it is in place, it will likely still look a bit too large. After a couple of uses, it will look perfect, and should last many years. What a great way to make an older pot just like new.

Presto Pressure Cooker Sealing Ring/Automatic Air Vent Pack (3 & 4 Quart) Before ordering a new seal for an old pressure cooker I inherited (It's so old, Noah may have used it on the Ark!), I used Presto's look up tool. I put in the number on the bottom of the cooker and learned the product number for the seal I needed to order. When it arrived, I laid it out next to the cookers' lid. I knew I was in trouble when the gasket had a larger diameter than the lid itself. The neighbors and I spent several hours trying to make it fit (Warm soapy water etc.) without success, It was just too large. Being creative, I cut 1 and 1/2 inches out of the gasket and joined the ends back together with some high temp Form-a-Gasket (Used for automotive thermostats.). My fix worked. But, be warned. The gasket/seal you order may not fit some older cookers.

Replacement sealing ring fit my pressure cooker just like it said. Soft and supple when taken out of the box. You do have to know how to insert them into place. Looks at first like it doesn't fit but it does. Just start tucking it under the lip of the top and continue all around. Sticking in the last piece looks long but it isn't when it gets tucked in. Seals great.

I have a pressure cooker that is so old, I don't even know how old it is. But it was my grandmothers and she said it had originally belonged to her mother (guessing possibly as much as 80 years old). The gasket/seal had completely worn out, chunks were falling out every time I used it, and steam was always leaking out of the sides. We did not want to buy a new pressure cooker so I finally just took a chance and ordered this item, not sure if it was the right one for my pressure cooker. Well it was perfect. It took quite a lot of work to get the old gasket completely out, I had to use a Dremel tool with a pointy brush tip attachment on it to get the groove completely cleaned out to allow for a good fit for the new one. Once it was all clear, it fit like a glove. I put the lid on and used it and the fit and seal were perfect. Very good purchase.....I'm ordering a 2nd one now that I know I've got the correct one....so I can pass this pressure cooker down to my daughter some day.

The size was correct but it was to big for the lid I ordered. My Presto is an old one and the numbers matched , But they were not correct.

I bought a 4 quart A414A Presto pressure cooker at a garage sale for only three dollars. It needed a good cleaning and this seal kit. It took a little work to get the seal into place, but it definitely is a perfect fit. I haven't yet cooked or canned (1/2 pints only), but I can tell fron closing the cooker that is is going to be absolutely fine. The lid fits very tightly when assembled. Now I have this small cooker/canner for those smaller jobs where my 22 and 23 quart monsters would be overkill. I like these older weighted models better than the six quart TTK cooker that I found at Target store a few years back. I don't like my TTK for cooking, because I don't trust that it's really pressuring up like I want it to, but with the heavy bottom on it, I can still use it for an A-1 popcorn popper! :-)

Some people wrote that this was too big and wouldn't fit, but it does. Of course, there were no directions except what was on the back of the box, so when I first tried to put it on, as pictured on the front, it seemed about an 1" too big.
I took it out and tried a different approach, stuffing opposite sides in, and then making sure to get the whole ring started in the groove of the pot top. Using my two thumbs I started pushing the rubber in with more force as I worked my way around the rim, making sure that none of the rubber flexed out. If so, I just went to that part and worked it in before proceeding.
It fit perfectly, and now made a $3 pressure cooker gotten at Goodwill a valuable functioning item.

Perfect for my circa 1975 era pressure cooker.
Happy to find this as it has made the seal much better!

The pressure cooker sealing ring I ordered is reasonably priced, fits my pressure cooker, and came pretty fast. It included the automatic air vent.

This transaction was easy and fast. When this pressure cooker sealing ring eventually stretches beyond practical use, I intend to order again from this supplier.

This worked perfectly. I was concerned because I didn't have a model number for my pressure cooker and it's old, found in a thrift store with no ring. And the specs on the item were vague but all is well.
