Default Pressure canner - advice on buying a new one?

I've water bathed canned for years, but have been intimidated with
pressure canner. I am thinking about Presto 25 quart canner. Any
advice or reccomendations?

Thanks

One with a weighted gauge is easier to get the pressure just right.
All-American has an excellent reputation, too. I have a Mirro
weighted-gauge canner that's probably 20 years old.

Hi !

Stay away from any pressure canner with rubber gaskets. Check out a
metal-to-metal seal. Such as The All American Canner - which comes in
different sizes.

My two Mirro canners are over 25 years old and have the original gaskets
and they work just fine. Eventually they may fail and need to be
replaced, but if looks mean anything they have another 10 years to go at
least.

All Americans are nice, but they weigh twice as much as a Mirro or
Presto, take up more cabinet space, and they cost a lot more.

If you have a glass top stove, Presto is the only canner with a flat
bottom that might work.

Best regards,
Bob

I'll trump your two Mirro canners Bob. I've got a Sears canner that is
about 40 years old now. I replace the gasket every two years and have
the steam gauge adjusted and certified annually. Still works for me.

I was bragging about the gaskets. That's what I meant have at least 10
more years in 'em.
