I picked up a cheap 6 qt. presto at the local thrift store for 6 bucks. I was wondering are the supposed to make alot of noise?? I'm testing it out at 15 psi... I replaced all the gaskets and pressure relief valves.. cost another 20 for parts.. but it is electric.. so that's the main reason I picked it up...




It ran for about an hour and then ran out of water/steam... I filled it about 1/3 of the way... just wondering about all the steam relief and noise... ??????

If it is over pressure it will howl! Sounds like the heater is up too high, or the pressure valve is not quite right.

You say its electric, I have never used an electric one before, does it have a thermostat?

no it's old, at least I don't think it does.. although it does have temp and pressure settings on the bottom slider... you can see it if you click on the picture.. maybe the preset soesn't work right... thanks for your input....

Once a PC is upto pressure it does not take much to keep it upto pressure, try turning it right down after it starts making a racket, thats what you do with with the stove version anyway.

Sears has pretty cheap ones for 29 dollars for 6qt and 39 dollars for 8qt. Not very big but it will do about 8-10 1/2 pints for the 8qt.

Or do what he did and look around at Salvation Army and other thrift places.

Someone else said they picked one up from Walmart for 16 dollars. Its only 12psi but you just have to cook slightly longer.

Try wal-mart. If you don't mind doing 4 jars at a time at 10psi, you can pick one up for $17.
