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!
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.
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.
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!Read more ›

Good customer service-they replaced a damaged unit immediately. Use this for all my canning needsPublished 13 months ago by Gary B. Stilwell
Works great. I use it to sterilize the canning jars, and then to water bath them. Uses two quart's of water instead of filling and boiling the large pot.Published 20 months ago by Melvin P Thorpe
I ordered this model especially because I could steam half gallon jars. But they sent me a much smaller version. I was not happy at all. Read morePublished on April 4, 2014 by Mary
Am a Master Food Preserver and this filled two jobs in one pot. Have done demonstrations with it and am always asked where it can be purchased.Published on December 26, 2013 by Carolyn Covey
Really a high quality product that is a pleasure to use. Really worth the price. Love the clear glass top and the flat bottom. Concur that the label is a royal pain to remove. Read morePublished on September 15, 2013 by Charles @lynnwood
Excellent Steam Canner. We previously had a steam canner, which eventually leaked. This is a much heavier duty model and is a great product.Published on September 11, 2013 by MontanaMan
I like being able to use either steam or water canning methods. I have a pressure cooker, but there are times when I only need water bath or steamPublished on August 30, 2013 by JOANIJ
I've owned this for over a year, and made several hundred jars of jam and tomatoes, and there is no sign of
rust that I got with the Ball canner. Read more
