YIKES! Newbie Help QUICK Please
    #1298413 - 02/11/03 04:11 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

K, Im an idiot,.. I put 6 1/2 pint jars in a 4.2 qt pressure cooker with a washcloth on the bottom and a rack inbetween the jars (3 on top, 3 on bottom), I put in 2 quarts of liquid,... And now my pressure cooker wont get  to steam - are these jars completely wasted? :frown:. Also,....How many jars should I do,..they can fit 3 in but if i use a rack 6 (should I just use 3 or 6 or maybe 4?). What is the best water level that you guys noticed worked for this? THanks for any info.

the rack should be on the bottom. the purpose of the washcloth is to replace the rack if you don't have one. if your jars will stack, just stack them. if your pc won't get up steam either the seal is broken or your oven is broken.

Do you have the booklet for the PC.. read it! be careful.

You should be able to put as many jars as it will fit! but don't fill it up with water, 1 or 2 inches should do. look inside of the pot for min-max lines.

But, again, be careful with it if you are unsure,, Read the manual, or look it up online! it will tell you how many jars you can use!

You can put as many jars into your pressure cooker as will safely fit. Not very much water is needed. I use less than an inch of water in the bottom of mine.

Thanks for the information so quickly. Yes, I had way too much water in there so i just let it cook without the weight until it steamed without water and now its cooking with the "gentle rocking notion". I feel really dumb but this is life. Thanks again for being quick and kind.
