Ordering Pressure Canners and Related Canning Supplies

If you want to can low-acid foods such as red meats, sea food, poultry, milk, and all fresh vegetables with the exception of most tomatoes,  you will need a pressure canner.  These foods  fit into the low acid group since they have an acidity, or pH level, of 4.6 or greater. The temperature which must be reached and maintained (for a specified amount of time) to kill the bacteria is 240 F. Pressure canning is the only canning method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats, and fish. Ordinary water bath canners can only reach 212 F and cannot to kill the types of bacteria that will grow in low acid foods. This temperature can be reached only by creating steam under pressure as achieved in quality pressure canners.

Whether you are canning low acid foods like green beans, corn and other vegetables for your first time or in your 50th year of canning; all the supplies you need are here, and at the best prices you'll find anywhere!  Scroll down this page for photos, descriptions, prices and ordering information.

Pressure canners!

There are several manufacturers of pressure canners.  The two leading ones are Presto and All American (Wisconsin Aluminum). They are more expensive than water bath canners, but they are extremely well built - I bought mine in 1988 and it still looks and works like new!

If you're new to pressure canning, see this page for a complete description of how pressure canners work, why they're better, and step-by-step directions on how to use one!

And if you lost the instruction manual  for your canner, click here for free downloads of many canner's instruction manuals !

This page lists spare and replacement parts for pressure canners

Recommendations:

Obviously, the Presto canners are the least expensive.  And I have one that I have been using since 1988. But I also have an All-American, the design of which does not require a gasket, so it should last forever. But you have to buy what you can afford.

As to size, well, bigger is usually better because it takes time to heat and vent the canner, process the veggies, then wait for it to cool down to open it.  So, a larger canner holds so many jars, that means you may be able to do your entire batch in one cycle. You do not need to fill the canner each time - you can can with one jar in it, or a full load. With pressure canners, unlike water bath canners, you can stack the jars. This means the larger canners can handle many jars at once, like 19 to 32 pint jars in one pressure canning batch. That really speeds up your canning.
