Product Description

Size:23 qt  |  Color Name:Aluminum

Pressure canning, the only method recommended safe by the USDA for canning low-acid foods, allows you to preserve meats, vegetables, and fruits. Presto pressure canners feature an easy-to-read dial gauge for accurate pressure control and extra strong, warp-resistant aluminum construction. The air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until pressure is safely reduced. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction/recipe book. 22-quart liquid capacity (20.9 liters).

This is exactly what I was looking for. This is a high quality, high-capacity pressure canner at a reasonable price. I had some issues with the dial gauge fogging up, but one call to Presto, and they sent me a free replacement in the mail. New gauge works great!.

What I like the most about this product is the versatility of it. I have used it to can vegetables, cook meals in drastically less time than it would otherwise take, and to make the largest pot of stock I have ever seen!

A wise choice on how to spend your money. This canner takes the guess work out of whether your preserves are safe to eat -- if you follow directions for the canner carefully.
I use it mainly for making salsa and canned tomatoes. Also, the large size canner means I can preserve quite a large amount at one time. There's nothing like going into your pantry on a cold & blustery winter day & picking out a can of home preserved tomato sauce or canned tomatoes to make a meal for supper!

I considered buying the 23 quart canner, but I am extremely happy to have this one. I have a standard 30" gas stove with 5 burners. This pot sits on the centre burner and the remaining burners are not readily accessible while it is in use. The capacity of this pot is more than adequate for a family of two. Be sure to purchase the 3 piece Presto Pressure Canner Pressure Regulator (sold here http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000HMBVQ8?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00) if you level at an elevation below 1001 ft. as the 15 lb. pressure regulator that comes with the pressure canner will not work for you. I'm currently canning some beans and I just have to listen for the sound of the weight jiggling rather than having to watch the gauge. As well, if you use the gauge, you have to have it calibrated regularly.
I actually purchased this elsewhere when my order was cancelled due to lack of stock.

I am satisfied with this product. I was not to satisfied with the length of time it took to get to me as I had something waiting and would have bought it at our local store with only 5 day wait.
Originally you said that it would be here in a few days and I waited over two weeks.

I use this all the time. Not just for canning. It's perfect for when I cook a smoked ham too. It's the only pot that will fit to do the simmering step. Very heavy and well built.

Delivery of my 16 QT Presto Canner was fast and everything was in perfect condition when I unpacked it. I recommend ordering the Presto Pressure Canner Pressure Regulator if you are in an altitude lower than 1000 ft. This is the first pressure canner I have ever used and the information booklet that comes with it is very thorough. I love this canner and know anyone who purchases one would be very happy with it. My canner has been in use 3 to 4 days a week for the past month preserving garden fresh vegetable and meats.

I bought this canner about a year ago. It was then sold by Amazon Canada and I paid, on special, something like 105$CDN, including taxes. I like this canner very much, I already owned a Mirro canner about the same size. The Presto is different. Although it seems to need more attention, I like that you can visualize the actual pressure.

I would certainly highly recommend this product, but not at this price! Also, since it is not sold directly from Amazon, I wonder how much the shipping will cost. FYO, this product is sold by Amazon.com for 79.79$US, once again, I don't know the shipping cost and you will know it only on checking out. By experience, shipping to Canada from Amazon.com is considered "international shipping".

I would suggest to anyone wishing to acquire the canner to simply browse on the net for the "Pressure Cooker Outlet", which will sell you the same product for around 80$US, the shipping for Quebec is 52.27$US, for a grand total of 132.26$US. Since both currencies are more or less at par... Do the math!

Once again, some sellers are very greedy when dealing with Canadian customers...
