17 Quart presto PC Question
    #1787937 - 08/07/03 12:31 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Any of you guys with a 17Qt presto have trouble with condensation building up in the pressure gauge? It gets so bad I can hardly see the reading. I noticed that the clear plastic peice that covers the gauge comes off(Is this bad/broken?). Do any of you have trouble getting it up to pressure (Mine takes near an hour to get to 15 psi on its own) But If hold the stop cock down so no pressure is released it takes like 15 minutes. Do I need a turkey fryer burner to run this thing properly?!?!

the glass on my 21 qrt presto was off when i got it, but it went right back on
no, i dont get condensation on my gauge
Are you screwing your petcock (hehe) down all the way when the steam flows? if it's all the way down is should only take like 10-15 minutes...you have a manual? if not let me know, i'll type mine up for you

yeah, you turn on the burner until steam starts to shoot out fast, then you turn the heat down until steam just flows freely and slowly out of it. let this free flow go on for about 10 minutes (this lets all the air out of the PC) screw the petcock all the way closed, turn the heat back up and let pressure build up, once it hits 15 psi, lower the heat again to stabilize it at 15...youll probably have to lower and raise the heat a bunch of times...well i did because i couldnt find the perfect heat to keep the gauge at 15 psi, maybe you will though. good luck
