Product Description

Color: Silver | Size: Holds 7 qt

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: 16 quarts (15.1 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 16-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 and 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 16-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 approximately 14-4/5 by 14-4/5 by 12 inches and carries a 12-year limited warranty. A detailed instruction and recipe booklet is included; special safety issues that pertain to pressure cookers are clearly explained. --Garland Withers

I decided to purchase this pressure canner after an exhaustive search online. This was the best price of any of the other sites I checked. I'll admit that the review from the woman whose canner "LITERALLY exploded" had me a little concerned, but since it was the only negative review, I decided to chance it since the price was so good ($79.97 and Free Super Saver shipping)! Best of all, it arrived in TWO DAYS!!!

The first thing I did was take the pressure gauge to my local county extension office (as recommended by the manufacturer) where they tested it and found it to be working perfectly. After getting their "OK", I hit the produce sales at my local market.

Even if you don't have a garden, you can still can fresh fruits and vegetables. I've already made 8 jars of strawberry jam using the hot water method, and canned enough tomato sauce to get me through until my own tomatoes are ripe and ready for the canner later this Summer. Unlike commercially canned or frozen produce, I can control what ingredients go into my food!

The instruction book that comes with this pressure canner gives different ways to can most foods depending on if you want to can them (1)"cooked" so you can warm them up when you're ready to use them or (2)just safely preserved to be cooked right before serving or using in recipes.

Overall, an excellent pressure canner at a great price! Just follow the manufacturer's instructions - including having the pressure gauge checked by your county extension office - and you should have no problems preserving fresh, healthy foods for yourself, your family, and your loved ones.

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 have been using the Presto 23 quart pressure canner for several years. I have taught classes on water bath and pressure canning and canned hundreds of pounds of food including meat, beans, fruits and vegetables. This canner is safe, reliable and versatile as it can also be used as a water bath canner.
Some people are concerned that it cannot be used on a glass top stove. This is not true. I have used mine on a glass top for several years. I have also used it on coils and even gas. It works on every type of stove I have tried it on.
When it first arrived, the directions indicated I should get the pressure gauge checked through our county extension services. My state's extension services did not know how to check the gauge, but the company was very helpful in instructing me in how to check it myself. Place 1 qt water in the canner and (we live at sea level) get the pressure going. When the rocker begins to rattle, the pressure should be at 15 lbs. Effective and safe. Thank you Presto!
The reason I am giving this machine 3 stars is because of replacement. The rubber gasket and emergency plug must be replaced periodically, even when treated with vegetable oil to maintain their pliancy and prevent cracks. Replacing them is under $50 including shipping (or can be done at the local Ace dealer), but that is the problem. Replacing them twice in the canner's lifetime can equal the cost of buying a gasket free canner. In addition, the gaskets seem to go out at the most inconvenient time - such as when I am teaching a class or when I have 20 pounds of beans to process, and our local hardware store can only replace certain parts.
So, if you are young and buying your first pressure canner with hopes of decades of use, then I would recommend a gasket free canner.
