8qt Mirro PC
    #2923053 - 07/24/04 08:47 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Has anyone given a Mirro PC a shot? My AA PC's gauge doesn't work, so I need a new PC. (The guage didnt go up after pressurizing for 10min).

How many qt jars do you think an 8qt PC will hold? I saw a few Mirro PC's on eBay and was wondering if it was worth my time or not. I'm looking for something cheap.

I know that a 7qt AA only holds 3 qt jars. The Mirro might have a problem with headroom if its lid isn't as deep as the AA.

The inside diam. of this old AA PC is 10 1/2 inches. This Mirro 8qt inner diam. is 6 1/2 inches... Maybe i'll look for bigger.

I have,thats what I use.







Bought mine at Wally-World----"Old Faithfull" :thumbup:


Mine holds 3 quarts-I just can't squeeze that 4th one in there for some reason.It only likes a hair too,maybe a different brand of quart jar could be used to fit 4 of them,but I haven't tried that yet.

you said it didn't go up after 10 min right. Was it full, and or have lots of water. You might need to let it go longer. AFOAF has a really big old PC that takes 20-30 min to reach pressure when fully loaded.

I guess I'll try that tonight with just water. It had some water in it, about an inch or so, and was fully loaded.

I've heard lot of complaints about mirro p.c's. I have two presto's. One's like 15yrs old and still works great. For the price I think presto's are the best.

8qt mirro will hold 4 quarts or 8x tall 1/2 pints or 10x stacked short half pints. works fine and a pretty fair price.
