    #8807830 - 08/21/08 10:14 PM (9 years, 9 months ago)

Will I be ok if I just put my jars submerged in the few inches of water in my PC.. or will it crack them?

You must put a towel inbetween the jars and the bottom of the pot they can be in the water though.

You should put between 3-6 quarts of water in your pc depending on the size of it..  I have a 21 quart pc and it calls for 3 quarts of water so I put three quarts of water in it then set my jars in..  They are usually in the water about 1/2 inch or so..  So yes it is safe to put you jars in the water no need to suspend them as long as they are canning jars..  Every now and again you may get a defective jar that may break anyways..

whoa whoa whoa, you put that much water in when you pc?  you only need a 1/2" of water or so when you sterilize your jars.  you dont need water to come half way up the jars you're just wasting energy.

Never let the jars sit on the bottom of the PC.  The intense heat from the stove burner will crack the jars.  They must be elevated.

I just grab some foil and scrunch it up and place in the bottom of the pc, that works perfect for me and its cheap and it wont burn like a towel will if it runs dry by mistake
