I purchased this canner in late winter and since the box was sealed and undamaged, I foolishly did not open the box until today. To my disappointment, the dome lid is dented and the rack has one leg that is not welded and other legs that are shorter than others. So, it does not sit level in the pan - it wobbles.
Since I need to use this canner today, I fixed the rack by bending the unwelded leg up and then bent the shorter legs down so that it sits level in the pan. The dent in the dome lid does not effect its performance, so therefore it is just cosmetic... But, for the price, this canner should be made of more sturdy material and have better workmanship.
Steam canning is more economical than water bath canning - but, I would not recommend this product since its workmanship is of poor quality.
