Presto 01781 23-Quart Pressure Cooker and Canner
For low-acid goods, including vegetables, meats, and poultry, the USDA advises pressure canning.
This Presto 23-quart pressure canner is perfect for home canning. It’s a professional-grade tool with heavy-duty aluminum handles and a steel lid. A rack slips into the pot to hold jars off the bottom so liquid can flow. It’s also a giant pressure cooker. Pressure cookers make healthy cooking simple since the food keeps more nutrients and flavor.
When canning or cooking, an inner sealing ring protects the steam from escaping. Aside from a pressure monitor and a primary steam release mechanism, an overpressure plug lets the steam out if it builds up too much.
The pressure dial gauge provides precise readings for consistent pressure throughout canning. This pressure canner doubles as a cooker for midweek meals or any meal that requires speed.
Recipes range from basic soup stocks through stews and pot roasts, as well as sweet treats like English Plum Pudding and Brown Bread! Tenderize lean meat or pork, or cook chicken, fish, or veggies faster than a microwave.
Use non-abrasive cleaners to clean this aluminum pressure cooker and a fine metal polish to maintain its gloss. You cannot immerse the lid on the Presto 23-quart pressure canner. Also, remove the sealing ring after each usage to clean the inside rim of the lid. The dial gauge is sensitive; specific maintenance instructions are included.
Both the lock for the air vent/cover and the overpressure plug can be removed. The pressure cooker is 14 inches in diameter and 15 1/2 inches tall (including lid). Presto offers a 12-year warranty on this pressure cooker. Complete instruction and recipe manual is supplied, as well as information on pressure cooker safety.
