What size PC do you guys use?
    #3330301 - 11/07/04 06:07 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

What size PC do you guys use and how many quart jars can it hold at once, and what did it cost?
Anyone know any place to get a good deal by ordering one?

I bought a small 7-quart(liquid capacity) All-American PC for like 20$ on eBay. It was a good deal, but in hind sight, I wish I would've gotten a bigger one...

I can PC eight 1/2 pint stubby jars(stacked) or seven 1/2 pint tall jars, and I think 3 quart jars.... it's kinda annoying.

Yea, it seems like all the stores around here only carry 7 quart liquid capacity. So would you recommend stickin it out for a larger one?

What would be a good store to find a larger one at? KMart/Wal-Mart isn't really the answer (around here at least). Lowes or Home Depot?

Doubt Lowes or Home Depot has one.

No other "general" stores around there? Department stores? Sears? You'd better bring the lube though, they won't be cheap.

you can fit 10 quart jars in a 21 quart pressure cooker but the 3 on top have to be set on their sides....

if you want them all standing upright then you have to go alot bigger, and those sizes wont fit under the exhaust hood on most people's stoves

Pressure cooker outlet lol. Very nice man, thank you very much, I'm ordering the 23 QT right now. Says that it can hold 7 QT jars, is that just standing up, putting 3 more on top of those on their sides will fit?

yeah the 23 quart will fit the other 3 on their sides...

but its not recommened by the Manufacturer....  as long as you dont block any of the valves you will be allright (meaning you wont die :wink:)

What do you think of this one? I could pick it up for $40 plus the shipping, but I don't know the hazards of PCs and whether or not to trust a used one.

dude that thing is older than my dad :lol:

I would stick with something a little bit newer, they do last forever but valves get old gauges get inacurate and so on....

plus new prestos have so many saftey features and 2 blow off vales that if you were to do something wrong it wont bow up..

I have been pressure cooking and canning foods long before I started studying mushrooms so...

so my reccomendation is the new one... :thumbup:

Identical to mine.  I got it used at a thrift store.  Works like a charm and there is no way it will pop.  Unless it's cracked I guess.

I was scared the first time I used it but I'm over that now :wink:

UPDATE:  Mine looks the same but it's a "National" and does have a saftey.  Mine is from the 60s and I even have the booklet :wink:

You may be sorry if you buy a really old PC. The gasket might be dried out and/or cracked. New ones can cost a bundle, if you can find them.
