- This canner comes with a dial gauge, it has numbers on it, to tell you what the pounds of pressure. You don't need different weights, it is all in the dial gaugeby CatsStuff11/6/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- Replacement parts from manufacturer: http://www.gopresto.com/products/products.php?stock=0178107 There are no weights; there is a pressure gage that indicates 5, 10 and 15+ lbs., and everything in between.by lanzipants9/20/2015Was this answer helpful? (4) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- Only one weight is needed -- the pressure is regulated via the applied heat to achieve the desired reading.by Oldtechnobug6/5/2011Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It comes with the 15lb only, presto sells the rest on their websiteby gastromical11/21/2014Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- it is set to show you 5, 10, 15, and 20 psi. so you are good. It is the temperature you set it at. It comes with full instruction as to how to get it to the pressure you want and how to keep it there.by pepsilluver6/5/2011Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- This canner has a pressure gauge not the weights. That's one thing that makes it nice. The only thing about the gauge is that it should be checked for accuracy. Your local Cooperative Extension can check it for you or you can send it to Presto.by CanningCrazy11/22/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- Me too. One drawback I find. Hope to see the right answer. Check the Presto page for the real answers, tho.by BoogerDog12/18/2010Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- First this particular product is a DIAL pressure canner and cooker and NOT a weighted pressure canner. It does NOT use a weigh to regulate pressure as weighted pressure canners do. It has a "Pressure Regulator" which jiggles (vents steam) at 15 pounds pressure and is a safety feature. No you can not get other weighted size "Pressure Regulators" for it. That would void this safety feature. The "Pressure Dial Gauge" is used (to) for setting the pressure in the canner. As a further suggestion, I recommend you get the pressure gauge checked yearly as a safety precaution.by GaltJohn9/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- yes 15 only. u can order a set from presto or miro or even ebay / amazon etc...by An anonymous customer10/24/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- This canner has a gauge, meaning you can raise the pressure as high as you need it: 5, 10, 15 PSI. You raise the pressure by raising the heat--after coming to pressure, on my stove I set it a bit under medium to maintain 15 PSI, med-low for 10 PSI. I was able to figure out what setting works for my stove, the first time I used this canner.by CinderellaKumquat9/27/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (2)Was this answer helpful?
- You need a pressure canner to process meats and veggies and the non pressure water bath canner can only do fruits and certain foods with a high acid content. The pressure cooker can do everything you should get that.by Freddytk4201/25/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It all depends on the recipe for canning that you are using. In Low-Acid foods, need to be pressure canned, potatoes, sweet potatoes, veggies Foods like pickles, relish, are water-bath cannedby CatsStuff11/25/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- I have both. The pressure one i purchased mainly for processing home made soups and sauses, also apples. They say that you need the pressure for these things.by ladynh10/3/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It depends on what you are wanting to can. Some foods need to have the pressure to reach the appropriate temperature to ensure bacteria doesn't grow. The pressure canner can also be used as a water bath canner. Both types are a good investment in my opinion.by mrsecs39/24/2012Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- This Presto® Pressure Canner also doubles as water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and salsas.by JAM123511/23/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- It depends entirely upon what you are canning. High acid foods, such as fruit and pickles, can generally be canned ina water bath canner. Low acid foods which include almost all vegetables, some tomato products and all meats, must be canned using the pressure canner method.by YandGGirl1/17/2016Was this answer helpful?

- It really depends on what you're planning to can. High acid foods like pickles for example don't require pressure canning; you can can these in a boiling water canner. But if you plan on canning meats or low acid vegetables, like corn or potatoes, then you need a pressure canner. My advice is buy a book on canning and then decide which type of canner is best for you.by JakeSheepdog1/17/2016Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I would get the one that says pressure if you are going to do things like vegetables..chicken broth, meats...because of botulism..if you get the one that also doubles as a water bath canner you can do everything..by LovetoGrandmaShop1/17/2016Was this answer helpful?

- That depends on what you want to can. If you're canning high acid foods like fruit or tomatoes a water-bath canner is all you need. If you wish to can corn, beans or meats you must have a pressure canner to reach the higher temperature needed to kill bacteria in those foods.by SnowMomOfThree7/24/2015Was this answer helpful?

Q. Do I need an additional canning rack in order to stack the jars? If so, where can I purchse one.
- I called presto to ask the same question. They said you can stagger stack jars or use an additional rack. With a rack you have much less of a chance of the jars falling over and breaking. http://www.gopresto.com Presto's website has the racks for less than $10 but be sure to order for the right quart size canner because the racks are different diameters. Hope this helps!by MissouriAquaponics11/5/2015Was this answer helpful? (4) (1)Was this answer helpful?
- You don't need an additional canning rack, the manual says to stagger the jars if you stack them. Meaning place one jar over two bottom jars. If you do wish to buy an additional rack they are available on Walmart.com though.by KP10279/7/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- They say you don't, but you can purchase one on-line from Presto directly.by George91212/14/2013Was this answer helpful? (0) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No, you do not need an additional canning rack. When loading your jars, it is recommended to stagger the top row by placing the jars on top of 2 bottom jars instead of right on top of a single jar. Works great.by pattiscissorhands5/16/2015Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- You can just stack the jars if you want, but the rack is recommended. I stacked some pint jars and when I only had 2 on top, one tipped over, but when I had it full to capacity, there was no problem except potentially making me nervous :) Oh, even the one that tipped over still sealed, it just leaked out some liquid as well.by CrunchyKeeperOfTheHearth4/2/2013Was this answer helpful?

- Racks keep the jars from touching each other and the cooker. I have always been told that it reduces the chance of breaking the glass jars.by Solarone4/7/2015Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- There is a rack in the bottom which stands the jars off from the bottom a fraction of an inch. You just add a lottle water and generally, stack the sealed jars on top of one an other.by Superfluous9/1/2012Was this answer helpful? (1) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- I have stacked jars in this canner, and did not use an additional rack-worked great.by BowlerFarms4/14/2012Was this answer helpful? (2) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- According to the manual, no rack is needed, I do use an old one I have though.by TopOfOhio3/5/2013Was this answer helpful? (3) (0)Was this answer helpful?
- No you don't need to, but you can if you want to according to the instruction manual. Here's where you can order replacement parts for the canner: http://www.gopresto.com/products/products.php?stock=0178107by lanzipants9/7/2015Was this answer helpful? (4) (0)Was this answer helpful?
