I grew up in the era where we canned everything we could or go without. Today groceries are getting higher and higher and my income dropped 80% when I went on SS. Now that I am finally officially retired, I have a real garden and wanted to can everything in it, but needed the pressure canner for a lot of the vegetables. I have never had or used a pressure canner and this is so light , pretty and easy and makes one so very proud to have it. I canned Collard greens and it worked great and now I have to do Swiss Chard, Mustard greens, Beet greens, green and yellow beans, spaghetti sauce, catsup, bbq sauce, and root crops. I am a very happy old farm girl to have this canner. I am canning from friends and family as well, it is a great wonderful product.
I do a lot of canning. My old Presto canner was quite similar and has served me well for 30+ years. I thought about replacing the gaskets and seals, but for this price (and my surprise points), I decided to buy new. It was easy to install the pressure gauge and I loved the shiny finish on the outside. I've used it several times and it's doing everything it should. I also like the 12 year warranty.
i bought this presto 23 qt pressure cooker/canner for the size and quality. its the perfect size and can cook anything from meats, veggies, soups, and preserves and does so much more. very good cooker and great price
Works as advertised
I've used this over and over. Love this item. Would purchase again.
I chose this 23 quart Presto Pressure Cooker/Canner because I can use it for water bath canning and steam canning as well as pressure canning in my smooth glass cooktop. I also bought a Presto 3-piece weight set so I can use it as a weighted gauge canner: I'll listen for a slow continuous jiggle instead of having to watch that the dial gauge is at the proper pressure. My only regret is that I didn't wait to see what prices the approaching Black Friday would bring. Since My purchase on 11-1, the price through Sears online has been changing. The first time was just days after I placed my order but before it arrived. I contacted Sears & they graciously matched their new lower price with points. Yesterday, 11-16, Sears online had an even lower sale price!! My canner already arrived. I like it.
