    The BEST canner/pressure cooker- GREAT PRICE!!

    I bought this pressure cooker/canner as a 33rd birthday gift for my sister and she loved it so much I bought myself one the very next week. We use it EVERY night... ribs, soups, pot roast, chile verde tonight!! I looked at so many different pressure cooker/canners and this was BY FAR the best priced and it can hold so much food- last night we made 5 lbs. of ribs and it barely covered the bottom! My sister said it was the best gift she has ever gotten, and my family loves it so much (my husband loves using it- even after a long day at work he is excited to cook in it!!)- the best part is it cooks SO FAST- ribs in 10 minutes, huge roasts in 45 minutes- I would HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who wants a good home-cooked meal fast, and not to mention the canning you can do!! The reason I am writing all of this is because I was so confused when I wanted to purchase one- I didnt know there was a difference between pressure cookers and pressure canners but there is, and this one does it all (I read it is not safe to can things in a normal pressure cooker-you need the pressure cooker/canner like this) It is super easy to use and by far the cheapest yet best quality of all (I looked at 20 different ones and almost paid $399 for the SAME thing!!) Have fun!!

    There was a time in America when products were designed to "last". This is one of those products. I spent a lot of time shopping for a Pressure/Canner both new and used. There are a lot of options in many different price ranges. The Presto 23 Qt. has been around since "Grandma's" time and I read some reviews where people returned more expensive devices in favor of this one because it heats up faster and cools down faster than any others. Reading about people inheriting this product made me think. Walmart had the best price and I had it delivered to my local store. It was effortless. I've used the unit now a few times - works perfectly, its simple, well crafted and I suspect will be in my family for generations. I can use this for pressure cooking, canning, sterilizing (autoclaving), or those times when you want to make a BIG batch of something for an event - largest soup pot I own (laugh). I love it. Best regards to all. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Very functional - easy to use canner - I have used this particular product for years. My Mom and Grandmother both had the same canner - would not use anything else. I bought this one for my daughter-in-law - so the tradition continues...

    This was the best value I could find on the internet. Better than Amazon.com even. Item shipped free to my front door....how great is that? I learned something the hard way and will share it with you, in hopes that you won't suffer the same loss. I was canning tuna and set-up the base to my turkey fryer out in back yard in order to process the fish outdoors, rather than stink up my house. Problem is, the bottom of the canner gets too hot on this type of burner and then bulges out on the bottom. It was not a pretty sight....canner tipped sideways due to the bulging bottom! We immediately shut down the flame. Had to make emergency trip to try to find another canner at a time of year when everybody and their uncle has bought them all....empty shelves! Finally found a smaller one and had to pay two prices for it. Next day I found this on Walmart.com and bought it. The dozen pint canning jars were a bonus and arrived in A+ shape....not a single broken jar. And what did I find in the bottom of the canner? A warning flyer stating not to use canner on turkey fryer base because it will cause the bottom to warp and possibly explode. This is a great canner. Can stack two-pints-high.

    I have always known that aluminum reacts with food. Why should I believe that this cooker will not?

    • A. This is not meant to be a cooker, but a canner. That means that your food will be sealed in jars before you place them in the canner with the boiling water. I don't cook in my canner - I have a big stainless pot for that purpose. I also have a steel pressure cooker. It is a lot smaller - maybe 3 or 4 quarts.
      by GrannySmit12/9/2014
      Was this answer helpful? (1) (2)
      Was this answer helpful?
    • A. If you have the food in sealed containers (hence the term canner) there can not possibly be any transfer. If you use it as a cooker then there will be some small transfer. If this is a concern then you should go with a stainless steel cooker. There will still be some type of transfer with stainless but certainly of less concern. Aluminum is used in some common name brand antacids and doesn't seem to be causing a serious health threat. Aluminum cookware comes in different aluminum alloys. T24 is an example of aircraft grade aluminum. If the alloy of this product is of concern to you the manufacturer (Presto) will disclose this information to you, however, you will need a point of reference to make an informed comparison. What I might considered safe for me may not be considered safe for you.

    • A. It could, it says in the booklet that some water is more acidic than other water and could deteriorate the interior, so food would too. BUT, you can put the food in another heat proof container within the pressure cooker, some recipes in the book explain and recommend this.

    • A. I used it for canning in jars so I don't see any concern about aluminum reacting with the food as it is self-contained in jars and not in contact with the canner itself.

    • A. You should not use a burner above 12,000 btus with this cooker. Outdoor burners get much hotter than that. it's hard to get a small enough flame on some of them to keep the pressure constant. if you do use a propane burner keep and eye on it and never let it run out of water.

    • A. yes if it's output is less than 12,000 BTU. The instructions state that you should not use it on any heat source exceeding 12,000 BTU as it will deform the aluminum. Most propane burners exceed 12,000 BTU's.

    • A. Yes, you can. However, it is not recommended to be used for outdoor cooking. 1, it is extremely heavy and a standard outdoor set up would not handle that weight load safely. 2, Outdoor cooking set ups can vary greatly in temperature from moment to moment due to wind and other factors. Consistent heat is ideal for pressure cooking and you must maintain enough pressure in order for your food to be preserved safely.
