The first reason: certainly, there are valid home canning safety concerns for any type of canner - if you do not follow proper canning techniques, or use the proper canner for different types of foods, then you can run into a problem. This steam canner is perfectly safe for acid foods (like pickling, etc.) as long as you following the directions. Steam is a minimum of 212 degrees, and when you follow the directions by making sure you have a continuous 8" column of steam coming from the vent holes before you start your timing, there should be no concern about "cold spots." If you start timing before this, then just like a water bath canner, you may underprocess by mistake. So, follow the easy instructions. The USDA's position is that there is a LACK of evidence for them to say steam canners are safe - it just means no one (or not enough scientists) have done research to make a definitive statement (it doesn't mean they are not safe). And this is only partly true - research has been done, and this type of steam canner is safe, as long as you follow proper canning techniques, follow the directions, and process only acid foods with it. For more information on the position of safety, the research that has been done (and the opinion of one dissenter who has NOT done any research) [see comment section for link]. If you have seen research to the contrary, please cite it so that the rest of us can look it up, too.Read more ›
I took off one star because the handles do get very hot very quickly, especially if you don't line them up and the steam from the lid hits the bottom pan handles. I expect this of most pans, but since the handles look like they would be heat resistant I tried to pick them up and burned myself. You do also have to be careful when removing the lid, as a lot of steam will escape (as should be expected). Overall, I burned myself mildly the first time, and then got smarter. So be careful the first time you remove the lid.

I purchased this for my mother in law and thought it was a great idea. She wanted one with a thermometer so I decided to keep this one. Read morePublished 13 days ago by barbara ann commorato
Here's the thing, if you want to lug around a huge pan of water to do your canning, that's fine with me. This is sooooooooo much simpler and so much lighter. Read morePublished 26 days ago by ClaireOKC

I use this for all of my hot water bath canning. It seems to boil quickly but when I put my jars in, it does not reboil for a long time. I may have to go back to the old standard.Published 3 months ago by James Howard
Tried several times and couldn't get this thing to work! Ended up going to the store and purchasing a huge pot to boil water in instead. Did not work at all.Published 4 months ago by Paul Lamas
