Just Right

This is a great canner- I was undecided about getting this size or the larger, but I'm glad I chose this- any larger & I would have had trouble lifting it. When the jars are loaded along with the water plus the weight of the canner, some serious muscle is required to lift this off the stove- and you MUST lift it off the burner after processing is finished. Also, it is HOT (duh!) so you can't rely on leaning it against your body to help take some of the weight off your arms/hands - the handles are large & stay nice & cool so you have plenty to hold on to. So if you are thinking about the larger size, keep the weight in mind as you might really be sorry about being able to add those extra jars when it comes time to remove this from the stovetop. Drawback to the smaller size of course is having to process smaller batches, but I'd rather do this than have an accident with a hot canner I can't lift. My plan is to buy another of the 16 Quart size for doing larger batches- the canner takes appx. 30 min. to cool down before you can open it- rather than sitting around waiting on it I would like to be able to keep going & get done with those larger having 2 smaller units, one could be being filled/processed while the other cooled & this cycle repeated which would make large jobs go a LOT faster. One other thing- instructions say canner can fit 10 pint jars at a time- now I don't know who came up with that estimate but they must have smashed 2 of the jars to get them inside...the MAX pint jars that will fit in this is 8 - anymore & you will need to fit them inside in pieces! Overall, this is a well made canner that should last many years with proper care. Instructions are well-written & easy to understand, & have processing times for MANY different fruits & veggies (as well as meats) in the back of the book. If you are new to canning, you will find that this canner is easy to set up & use by following the instruction book. If you are a seasoned pro. you will love this canner!

This is the first pressuer canner I have owned. I found the product to be all it was advertized and more. I wanted a unit I could use both for water bath and pressure canning, it does both very well, gave me confidence in my limited canning abilities, it was great fun. I bought the canner to can tomatoe meat sauce. The instruction book also contained a reciepe for bread and butter pickels, I tried it and they are great. Thanks to Wal-Mart for a great price and a terrific product. Multiple pressure settings with weighted balance makes this unit perfect for canning different food products. Anyone doing home canning can't go wrong purchasing this canner. Well built heavy gauge alumn, will last a lifetime.

I was looking for a pressure cooker for canning produce from our garden, as well I wanted to be able to cook some of the recipes my mom and grandma use to make: Stuffed Cabbage, Corned beef and cabbage and several others that my small pressure cooker would not handle. Perfect size for making meals that I can now freeze and eat through the winter ... if they last that long :). I would recommend this product for anyone needing a pressure cooker for durability and ease of use. The 3 levels of pressure are easy to change and it is not too small and not too big, great for home canning and large family dinners, cooked quick ...always tender. And after a lot of searching all over the internet the price beats out the competition and by far the best value for your money!

  • A. Canned in same Presto 16 Quart Canner (1or2 "small" changes in the canner since then) over 30 years ago on gas stove. Got my new Presto 16 Q-C... this year, But have an electric stove now. The difference with the electric stove, The canner has to be picked up off the heat source and movedto the side ~ where-as ...the gas just needs to be turned off!

  • A. Yes. Remember though!, it does not recommend you use it on a high BTU burner, but the medium one. (The pdf file will give you the specs of that.) Do a test run first. Set your burner to almost high setting and go from there. The rocker will be a gentle steady rock that is on the quiet side when compared to my old rocker on my now-defunct Mirro pressure canner. The rocker-style of gauge works best on a gas stove. Gas stoves are too variable for the dial gauges, meaning you have to sit in front of the thing watching it the whole session, tweaking your burner to keep it at a steady pressure.

  • A. A gas cook top should heat the canner properly. To prevent damage to the pressure canner, do not use on an outdoor LP gas burner or gas range over 12.000 BTU's.

  • A. Yes, gas top heats the pot correctly. The type of heat used really has no bearing on the pot pressurizing.

  • A. the little top piece just sits on the vent. You want to adjust the heat so it rocks on the stem without venting steam.

  • A. There should not be anything that screws on. The weight sits on top. It is not attached, it just sits on the post that vents the steam.

  • A. If you are meaning the pressure rocker, it sits on it's place and does NOT need to be screwed onto the top of the lid. The pressure rocker allows for three different pressure settings by adding or removing the top and middle weight - consult your canner's guide for further information.

  • A. If you are talking about the Pressure Regulator, it does not screw-on to the top of the pot -- the Pressure Regulator simply gets placed on the Vent Pipe, to rest loosely over the Vent Pipe so that the Pressure Regulator can freely rock back-and-forth once pressure has been achieved. The cooker comes with a great little illustrated user's guide so I looked up Presto's help-line phone is 1.800.877.0441.
