All american pressure cooker 22qt question
    #1843946 - 08/23/03 08:29 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Okay, This guy i know bought a 15qt pressure canner off ebay....leaked, got a refund...then he decided...fuck it...and bought a 22 qt "barely used all american pressure canner" on ebay from a differnt person. The pressure canner that he has now, has a bolt looking thing behind the handle that is leaking pressure it seems. What does this mean? did he get another useless canner? It won't go above 5 psi as of right now.

any answers would be helpful.

It sounds like you might be missing the weight (Part 68) that is placed over the vent pipe (Part 69).
Here are some pictures of the parts

edit: Added part numbers

No. The weight is what regulates the pressure. Without the weight, it will just vent steam constantly. You can purchase parts online:

Order the instruction book while you're at it.

Good luck!

if it can reach a psi of 15 will it still sterilize? or will it do nothing?

I would not use it without the weight. The weight it the first line of safety to vent excessive pressure. That aside, it would boil away large amounts of water potentially of boiling it dry.

That depends on what you're sterilizing.

The generally accepted procedure for complete sterilization is 60 minutes at 15 PSI.  At that pressure, the water inside the PC will be at 250F.  Anything less than 15 PSI, and the temperature will be lower than 250F.  The further below 250F you are, the longer you have to PC to achieve complete sterilization.  There are no hard-and-fast rules on this.  For example, you can steam BRF PF-Tek jars at 0 PSI for an hour and achieve sterilization.  Cow poop requires an hour at 15 PSI.

A good rule of thumb is to add about 30 minutes for each 5 PSI drop.  So, at 10 PSI, PC for 90 minutes.  At 5 PSI, PC for two yours.  Note that this doesn't guarantee sterilization, but it might work.  Also note that a PC blowing steam without a weight for two hours is likely to run out of water before the two hours are up; oh, and it'll turn your kitchen into a steam room.  :tongue:

You really need to get a weight for your PC.  Without it, all you have is a glorified steamer.  Be patient and order the part.

Also, check out the PC FAQ:

Good luck.
