Product Description

Can't decide between water bath and steam canning? The Victorio stainless steel dual use canner can do both! Innovative canning rack allows you to use the same canner for both water bath and steam canning jobs. Built-in thermometer with three color-coded elevation settings eliminates guesswork and makes timing a snap. Large stainless steel 24-quart liquid capacity pot can be used as normal stock pot when canning season is over. Water bath capacity: 8 pints or 7 quarts. Steam capacity: 9-pints, 8-quarts, or 5-half-gallons. Not recommended for use on smooth top ranges. Heavy weight with prolonged high heat can damage some flat cooktops. Important: Steam canners and water-bath canners are not recommended for canning low-acid foods. Please consult a reliable guide before canning.

It's easy to use, easy to clean, and extremely durable.
J. Ollman
It saves time, water and electricity and it is so much lighter in weight when you use it as a steam canner.

I am sure I will have many more happy years of canning using the Victoria.

I have been involved with canning for nearly 50 years. I've used a lot of water bath and pressure canners. This was my first experience with a steam canner, although steam canning had been recommended to me several years ago. My friend told me she used to have a stainless steel steam canner but now all she can find is aluminum, so when I saw this I said, "OK, let's give it a try." I know the Victorio name from their juicer, and it's a quality company. True to my expectations, this canner lives up to the Victorio name. It is heavy-duty 18/8 gauge stainless steel, has excellent instructions for both steam and water-bath canning. It's easy to use, easy to clean, and extremely durable. The gauge on top is accurate, folks, and takes the guesswork out of when to start the timing. Eight jars at once (while steam canning) is marvelous! I've done several loads of peaches today in this pot and I won't go back to water bath for anything! This is a beautiful, economical, multi-use canning pot and I'm going to love owning and using it year after year. My only regret is that I didn't have it years ago when I was doing much more canning for my family! It's more expensive than the aluminum Back to Basics brand canner, but I'm glad I spent the extra because I know I'll love this dual-pot a lot more than just the single-function Back to Basics. Back to Basics cookware is good (I own some), but in this case, the Victorio wins the prize.

Here is the Victorio water bath and steam canner in use. This is an excellent product, and appears very durable.

Naturally, with all the steam escaping from the vent holes in the lid, the lid does rumble around quite a bit on the pot. This is to be expected, and doesn't mean the canner isn't working properly.

The thermometer on the lid is a great feature! It actually didn't reach the "green" zone until after I thought the water was already boiling, so if I had not have had that thermometer, I might have accidentally started timing too early - the gauge lets you know excatly when the temperature inside the canner is hot enough to start timing!

And, of course it's expensive! You truly get what you pay for! It was worth every dime I paid!

I'm very pleased with this canner! I'm happy that it's a thinner type of stainless steel. If it was a heavier grade it would be impossible to lift when full of water to carry over to the sink. I haven't used it as a steam canner yet. I've water bath canned pickled okra and eggs, salsa, pureed tomatoes, pizza sauce, tomato soup, and strawberry and peach jam! The lid is a joy to work with! The handle doesn't get hot enough to need to use a hot pad to remove it from the pot. The gauge takes the guess work out and now I KNOW when the water is at the right temperature to begin timing. The little holes on the side of the lid are very handy to release the steam and cuts down on the burping sometimes necessary when the water boils and there is too much steam in the pot. Expensive yes, but I won't have to worry about this one rusting out like my enamelware did. Good purchase!

My husband had a customer on his route that suggested a Steam Canner to him. I researched it and found that this one was the best one I could buy and it would kill 2 birds with 1 stone. Water Bath and Steam canner and made of high quality material.

We have had it for 2 weeks now. It has cut my canning time down so dramatically that I get twice as much canning done. We have tons of tomatoes this year. I was able to make spaghetti sauce and can 12 quarts and do 18 pints of salsa. It was easy and quick to switch from one size jar to another. I even did batches with only a couple of jars. No problem. I would normally have to do each one on different days. For the water bath it takes so much time to bring the water up to temperature, then hope you have enough in there to cover your jars. The steam uses only 2-3 quarts of water. We have also used it to steam corn on the cob to be frozen. A couple dozen at a time.

I love it, love it, love it.

While this canner costs more than the basic enameled one, it is worth the money!! Here is why:
1. The gauge on top takes all of the guess-work out of when to start your timer for processing. (Worth it right there.)
2. It still looks beautiful even after a lot of use.
3. It is heavy and thick and sits perfectly flat on the cooktop. Very stable and makes it nearly impossible to spill or have scary accidents.

INVEST IN THIS ONE. You will be happy with it.

I used this all summer and found it easy to use. I canned over 200 quarts and it still looks new. I only used it as a water bath canner so I can't review it as a steam canner.

This canner is amazing! Both it and the rack are stainless steel, light in weight, and incredibly roomy. I did not think the temperature gauge would be very useful (who can't tell when water is boiling?), but it sure is. I live at sea level and the gauge tells me just when to start the timing. I will use this often!

Received this pot yesterday and have not used it yet. However I'm posting a review to alert some of you to differences between the real pot and the product listing. After ordering I received an email stating that the product would be the newer updated version of the one shown on line. The differences are the one I got has silicone covered handles and a glass lid. I consider these to be improvements over the one shown and am happy with that change.

However, the pot as listed on amazon says 24 quart liquid capacity. The pot I received holds only 20 quarts liquid when filled to the rim. The listing says it is 14 inches tall. Mine is 9 1/2 inches to the rim and less than 11 inches to the top of the knob. If you are like me and wanted the extra space at the top above your quart jars when canning, this may matter to you.

The label attached to the pot has this statement "20 quart liquid capacity. For use as a canner only". What the heck? I fully intend to use this as a stockpot when not for canning. I this a language error? Surely must be. The product listing on amazon says it can be used as a stockpot.

And now to the enormous honking nasty label plastered to the side of the pot. I followed the included instructions and removed the label with a hair dryer heating it up as I removed it. It worked ok and took about ten minutes. HOWEVER, it left a layer of glue film on the pot. I gently scrubbed it with Goo-Gone and a scotch-brite pad. Then with copious amounts of vinegar and baking soda. This worked but did leave very fine scratches in the shiny stainless surface.

So if what you want is a 20 quart pot which is very beautiful until you have to scratch it up removing a ridiculous glued down label from over one-third of the surface, this is the one for you!
