Pressure canning is the safest method for preserving low-acid foods such as vegetables, meats, and fish. This pressure canner has an easy-to-read gauge that automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures. An 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. The pressure canner also doubles as a water bath canner for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles, and salsas. Includes a cooking/canning rack and instruction/recipe booklet.
Suitable for use on regular and smooth-top ranges.
