I had one before but I let a friend borrow it and he left it on the burner for way too long at max and the bottom bulged out. He kept it and said that it is still usable but doesn't look the same so here is my second one :) Great price/quality ratio.

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.

by LoveMyPressureCanner

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!!

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.

What strikes me most about my new Presto canner is the directions are fool proof. It works exactly as they say it will. I really appreciate that. I have canned about 100 jars since receiving it. All are sealed properly. I have done pressure canning and hot water bath too. It's just wonderful.

I received this canner as a gift and am new to canning. I have only used my mother in law's Mirror Pressure Cooker. I was nervous about using a pressure gauge(her's only has a weighted jiggler). I read the instructions and the manufacturer recommended doing a test run on the canner; it also mentioned that the weight would only jiggle when 15 pounds or more pressure was acquired. It was a good thing I remembered this detail because my gauge never did go over 4 lbs. of pressure and my jiggler was just a dancing. I turned the heat off and let the pot cool for just over an hour before carefully removing the lid. The gauge never dropped back to zero until it was tapped with my finger. I do not feel comfortable relying on a gauge that may or may not be working properly. Also the instructions say you can not get the gauge wet when washing. Double negative for me. I'm going to purchase the weighted jiggler, just seems easier to use.

I was really worried to use this at first but I went over and over the book of instructions and then took the book with me into the kitchen. I read it again and then took the canner out of the box. I cleaned it, got my jars of potatoes ready, put the hot water in the canner, put the lid on and read the book again. I got everything in place as instructed and got to canning. Everything worked just like the book said and I was very, very happy and proud of myself. I have done potatoes, carrots, jams, syrup, relish, apples and plums. Thanks Presto for a great canner and Walmart for having it available for me to purchase.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I own a farm with a large garden. I can, preserve and bottle nearly every weekend. So many recipes call for the item to be pressure cooked, (especially anything with meat). I priced just about every pressure cooker on the market. There are smaller capacity cookers on the market for more than twice the money as this one. They all do basically the the same thing. The pressure cooker I bought on line was delivered free to my door very quickly. I can buy replacement gaskets or parts from the manufacturer so I feel like I have made a lifetime purchase at a bargain price. I can not be more content. Presto is a great brand and makes many great products. I have a well worn kitchen and Presto and Walmart are again my choice. Why would you choose otherwise? If you are reading reviews then my opinion must matter to you, so I am saying,"Buy it, you will not be sorry".

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I got the bundle which included the canner and 12 pint jars so the canner ended up being some $74 with tax. In the store just the 16 quart canner was $66, so this is a much better deal. I've used it quite a few times already and have no complaints. When used correctly it preforms as expected and has tons of room. It is a very large canner though so if you have a middle burner I suggest using that one. I used a back corner burner and it charred the wood edging on my counter tops. It was entirely user error, but maybe I can save someone the same heartache by mentioning that the pot itself gets extremely hot and does not fit well on a corner burner if your stove is very close to your counter. Happy canning!

I like this canner very much. I used it the day after I received it to can some corn chowder that I made. It was very easy to use as long as you follow the directions. Please be aware that you must not only follow the directions on how to use the canner, but also the directions for how to can whatever you are making. For the money this canner processes a lot of food. It's sturdy, good looking, and handy as an extra pot. The chowder I canned came out well and I was quite pleased with how easy it was to process. My only issue, and this is not and issue with the canner, is that it can be hard to use on an electric stovetop as temperatures do not regulate quite as quickly as with gas. That is not a problem with the canner though, just a recommendation that it will be easier to use with gas. Bottom line I love it!!!!

it is possible to change the weights to 10 or 5 PSI?? If so, where can we get the weights....

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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!

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.

  • A. 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.
