That is a fixed pressure model. Im not sure what it is but I am sure it is at least 10 if not 12 or 15. If you cant find the info just assume it is 10 and add another half an your or so to the time to sterilize as the temp will be lower. You can probably get a comparable model a bit cheaper at walmart of k mart.

Good Luck

6 qt capacity is way to small...you want one that can do qt jars
ck this link out ...great prices

My first PC could only do 2 qt jars at a time and it was a 8 qt capacity...I just use it for cooking popcorn now

I think Alouncara is trying to encourage you to think ahead. I would do the same also,but it looks like you have already purchased the pc in question so you have what you need for the pf tek using half pints.

As you progress in this hobby you will most likely find the pf tek to be a bit labor intensive and low yielding compared to whole grains which are best done in quart jars or bigger. This is when you will wish you had bought a larger pc aroung 18 quarts or bigger. Until then you will have alot of fun and success with the pc you have. I would suggest that since you might have a 10psi pc that you cook for at least an hour and a half if not two hrs. 10psi doesnt produce a temp of 250 like 15psi so you will need to cook longer to ensure sterility. You will need to add plenty of water to keep the pc from going dry during the longer cook time. Go about half way up the jars and you should be fine for 2 hrs.

Just keep your eyes open in the fall and spring for walmart(if you have one around) and you can find a nice 18q or 22q pc for around 75$. You will have the basics down pat by then and be ready to broaden your horizons and move on to grain and bulk teks.

That PC will work just fine. I had that exact one up until a month ago. They sell it at Walmart. I think that it is 12 PSI. I cooked all my jars @20-25 mins and I rarely had contams. If that's the size you need, then I recommend it. I prefer a larger one myself.  :smile:
