Pressure Cooker or Canner?
    #3207653 - 10/02/04 08:22 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Well, I went to Walmart today in search of my first pressure canner. They had it on the website for $90 and I think it was a Presto 23 qt. one. Turns out the stores near me dont carry them though. Is a pressure canner really THAT much better than a pressure cooker, or is it just a matter of how many jars it can hold? If thats the case can anybody recommend any really good pressure cooker brands or models? I was searching through some of them and it looked like some didnt have much room in them at all, and a lot didnt even get near 15 psi. I was tempted to buy the canner online, but I bought the spores with my credit card and I dont wanna look too suspicious buying a pressure canner with my card too. Any help you guys can give would be much appreciated!  :laugh:

mail the vendor cash/moneyorder/cashiers check next time



or you can call around to your local hardware stores and find a big pc
the smaller hardware stores just seem to have all the goodies that those big stores don't carry

I found my pressure cooker at Linens n' Things for around $50, but it only holds three quarts at a time. It works well though, I don't have any complaints.

Roomate and I just started first grow today. We found a $40 PC that was 8-10 quarts i think. It held 10 1/2pint jars, good enuf for us. Worked good, i guess we'll see how effective it was in sterilization in a few days when the first signs of life emerge...

Ok, so I think Im gonna buy a PC instead of a canner based on your posts. Any special brands I should look out for now? Presto? Wearever? T-Fal? I planned on getting one that holds at LEAST 4 qts. Also, how can I ensure that it goes up to 15 psi? The boxes don't exactly say how high they go. Thanks!

Oh, and by the way, that All American canner looks incredible! But it's about a hundred more than I was hoping to spend. Thanks for the advice though. If this turns out successful it may be worth investing in!

here youll find all brands of canners.. canner info all are good. if you dont care how much the price go with the bigger ones with gauges and shit... i was limited on a $40 budjet so i bought a presto 10 quart pressure cooker that holds 2 quart sized jars and you can hardly close the damn lid, its one with the rocker on top, i dont know how much pressure it really builds up in there, but no contamination yet!!!.... cant wait till i get to upgrade. happy hunting

Well this is exactly the topic I had questions about, so thanks for bringing it up.

Yes the All American line looks very nice, but that's a good chunk of money and most importantly I have a smooth top range and they are noted for not being compatible with smooth tops.

So I think I'll be going with an 8 qt Presto Aluminum. It'll hold 7 one pint jars and that's plenty for me.

Here is my question though, and I think this question has already been posed in the thread.

**If I have to buy one of these lower end models that doesn't have a pressure gauge, can I depend upon it to do a complete job of sterilizing?

If some veteran cultivators would give input on this that would be great.

oh

Doesn't matter what it holds as long as it works for you.A PC is the way to go.
