Pressure canning is the only canning method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats and fish. The easy to read dial gauge automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures. Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until the pressure is safely reduced. Presto pressure canners also double as water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, pickles and salsas. Canners are constructed of extra strong, warp-resistant aluminum and are suitable for use on regular and smooth-top ranges. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction and recipe book. Capacity: 24 half-pints, 20 pints and 7 Qt. jars. 23 Qt. liquid capacity.
If you want to can unpickled vegetables, , beans, or any , you’ve got to use a special piece of equipment called a pressure canner. Seriously, this is the one rule about canning that you’ve really got to get right for .
Each brand of pressure canner is slightly different, and you definitely want to read through the manufacturer’s instructions carefully before using a new pressure canner for the first time.
