Old National Pressure Canners

Here it is!  A visitor had a copy! As near as I can tell, this manual is generic to all of their pressure canners, including No. 5, No. 7, No. 12, etc.

Feel free to download the manual for personal use, and to link to this page, but do not copy the manual and post it on other websites

Background:


National Pressure Cooker is the company name (1917) for the Presto company. It became Presto in 1939.

So, the National #7’s date to the 1940’s. The wood handled ones are older than the plastic handled ones.
Using a canner that old is a but risky, unless you can have it tested and assuming you could get parts for it.

Parts are here: http://www.pressurecooker-outlet.com/7.htm 

So, if you replace worn parts, especially the over-pressure safety valve, you'll need to have the gauge tested or replaced and check the canner for warping or other deficiencies.

The University of Idaho along with Washington and Oregon have these manual that works for any pressure canner!
