Product Description

Presto 23-Quart Pressure Canner... Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats and fish. The easy-to-read gauge automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures. Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build up only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until pressure is safely reduced. This Presto Pressure Canner also doubles as water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles and salsas. Mason Jar Capacity: 24 Half-Pints, 20 Pints, 7 Quarts. 23-Quart liquid capacity (21.8 liters) Constructed of extra-strong, warp-resistant aluminum and suitable for use on regular and smooth-top ranges. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction and recipe book.

Nice product. Used it only a few times so far and it works well. No steam venting out the sides etc which can be a pain. Pressure guage is very accurate. Lid fits easily and snug. Its very light weight.

Only reason for giving a 4 is that Because its all alloy it doesnt work on an induction hob. So if youve only got induction you will need to hunt hard for a canner that is steel. Or buy an interfacing plate, or wait for the all metal induction hobs to be generally accessible.

Comparison with All American canner... 18 Dec 2012
By Amanda - Published on
Verified Purchase
There isn't much I can say besides that it does just what you expect it to do. It works, it seals fine, it keeps pressure fine. It works as a water bath canner just fine. Really, it does what it needs to do. I've put up about 300 cans so far and it's doing just fine. (from applesauce to grape juice to green beans to venison)
My sister got the All American Canner and we canned side by side a lot so we could compare the two. Here's what we noticed the difference are:

All American is a heavier pot. She can make applesauce in hers w/o burning the bottom (I burned mine), but I can use the Presto one on my glass top oven which she can't do with her All American because of how heavy it is.

The All american has a bit of a domed lid which means she can fit one more can in hers than I can. Somehow, since the middle is higher, we had an instance where hers was able to fit the combinations of stacked jars and my Presto wasn't.

The All American is a weighted gauge canner, while this Presto one is a dial gauge canner. In my estimation, that means the All American needs less babysitting than the Presto. I had to keep adjusting the heat under my Presto to make sure I wasn't getting it too high or letting it fall too low. She could put her weight on the canner and walk away knowing it would stay at 10 lbs w/o much fuss.

And finally, the All American has a handle on the top that makes transporting it much easier.

All that being said: they canned exactly the same. Every time we canned side by side, the time to bring them up to pressure, the time to can, and the time to bring them back down took exactly the same amount of time.

I had to go with the Presto because of my glass top range. I like the details about the All American better, but like I said, this one works perfectly.

Amazing Presto Canner 27 May 2008
By S. Gonzalez - Published on
Verified Purchase
Never had a canner before so took a while to decide on which one to buy. I really think this was a great choice. The canner works perfectly and such a joy to be able to can all my vegetables from the garden. I highly recommend this as a First Canner Purchase. It's not too big and not too small for a beginner.

Absolutely Great! 25 Oct 2007
By Sunny - Published on
I purchased this pressure canner after having one of the original canners from many years ago. This is so easy to use - lighter, easier to close, easy to read gauge. I love the jar support- it is so much better than the old wire basket. Each jar is firmly supported. No more wobbling. This canner is absolutely great!

works great on glass top stove 2 Nov 2006
By Diane L. Sullens - Published on
We needed a pressure cooker that would work on our glass top stove. Not many of them do so we were very happy when we found this one...It's a GREAT pressure cooker and we love it! :)

Presto Canner--Love it with three piece weighted gage addition 11 April 2009
By Lisa Benninger - Published on
I have two Presto canners and I love them but I didn't used to.

Babysitting the dial gauge is a pain and I haven't canned enough years to know what stove setting holds the pressure steady at the right weight. After researching, however, and as a previous reviewer mentioned, you can order a three piece weighted gauge that fits these canners for $15 or less if you do a web search for model #50332. Not only can you confirm this with Presto's customer service but you can order one and confirm it yourself with the dial gauge.

So now I have the weighted rockers for 5/10/15 lbs (the 10 lb is actually weighted for the new recommendation of canning at 10.5 lbs)I don't have to keep coming back to check the pressure every 5 minutes. If it's too low I'll hear it stop and I don't have to worry about over cooking it because the rocker keeps it from going too high.

The two reasons I give this product 4 stars is because I believe that Presto SHOULD REALLY be including the three piece rocker with it. It would make it a premium canner at a much lower price than others. Also, I have concerns about cooking foods in aluminum pans, especially if your cooking at the high pressure temps, but it's simply not relevant to me as I don't cook with it for this reason, just can.
