A few PC Questions
    #590503 - 03/26/02 11:56 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I'm in the market to buy a PC, and I had a few questions.
-How do I find out how many PSI it cooks at? Some of the models I looked at said the PSI, but many didn't. I only found one that says it cooks at 15psi. If it doesnt say the psi, then is there a psi that is assumed?
-Will any PC do? Other than psi and size, what should I take into consideration?
-Is Mirron (or something similar to mirron) a good brand? What are the good brands, other than American?

Most that i found were actually 10 psi, which is not what the MMGG says to use. I bought one anyways and my jars are contam free so far.

You could try checking to see if the company has a web page, many times there is good info there.

Mine is a 21 or 22 quart Presto. It will hold 16 pint jars and will hit 17 - 18 psi according to the gage.

Stick with 15 psi. It was around $80 at Walmart.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

i have a mirror from walmart-it will hold 5 1/2  pint jars-it only goes to 10 psi- i ahve never gotten contams using brf,or birdseed-
mine only holds 5 jars-i payed 20 bucks at walmart-so what i did is buy 4 of them-1 for every eye of the stove-so i can hold actually 20 jars(5 in each cooker on eaach eye)this way you copme out cheaper than buying a cooker that would hold 20 jars :smile: so i spent 80 bucks and hold 20 jars-most people spend way mor than that to get the *15 psi* and to be able to hold more jars-

Check out your local thrift shop for a $2 pc. Even if it leaks a bit and only reaches 8psi, it'll still work.

I know a guy who didn't even use a pc or even boil, he was just really clean. He still had some success!

If I'm using rye grain should I throw down the extra cash for a PC that cooks at 15 psi or will a 10 psi one due? The one I'm looking at that cooks at 15 psi is a mirro and its $140, but another one nearly the same size cooks at 10 psi an is on sale for $90.

And Max, I've allready checked every local thrift shop with no luck, so I've finally decided to throw down the cash to buy a new one. Also, I fruited a few tapalpa cakes a bit ago and I got two nice sized fruits. I took some pics but I dont got a digi so I gotta wait for the film to be developed, but I do have access to a scanner so I'll post some pics in a bit. Thanks for the superb spores.

From what I understand, 15 PSI is +1 atmosphere (double the normal atmospheric pressure), and is the way to go.
