Everytime I feel motivated to go look for pressure cookers at thrift shops, I end up finding everything BUT a pressure cooker.

I can never find them at thrift stores and believe me I've looked. too many people around here can from their garden so they rarely get "discarded". I got my current one off eBay last year, about $40 for a big-un that would have cost about $120 new.

The smallest size that is really practical is an 8 quart, preferably the tall type. I can get 8 half-pint jars in my old 7qt, but its too short for a quart jar to fit. I've also got the big 16qt to do big batches of jars or bulk substrate...but it takes a while to get up to steam...also won't fit in the kitchen cabinet :{

One big note on practicality: the cooker companies don't still make parts for all their older models. I had to retire my last cooker because I could no longer get gaskets or a safety plug [which got replaced with a bolt...not safe but I'm still alive]. Before I bought my current PC [used], I double checked the model # at the company's web site to make sure parts were still available.

I got a brand new 22 qt pressure canner delivered for $72.00. The place I got it from was Goodman's. I don't have the link right off hand but if you want it I will find it.
