TCG...I don't have any idea what pressure it will hold, so probably won't work for canning. I have a big canner that I bought used some time ago, but don't know enough about canning (even with a new one) to know if the gasket's good enough to be safe. Oh well...guess I'll stick with dehydrating for the time being...until I can afford a new canner.

Philbe-

The non-stick surface is Teflon. A bottom rack for your pot can be created by zip-tying several screw rings together, but I'm not sure whether it can be used for pressure canning, because if you don't know the weight of the "rattler" you won't know if you've created the proper pressure inside the pot for canning purposes.

Violet will probably be along any time now and can probably be more difinitive.



NEW-I bought my canner (used) on e-bay. You might try looking there, or possibly Craig's list.

No, Philbe, that is a cooker, not a canner. Unless it would hold at least 4 quart sized jars, not pints, it is only safe for cooking.
You must wait and get a real pressure canner, sorry.
I can, you can, too !

From Philbe...I bought a used canner early this summer but don't know how to tell if the gasket's any good. That's why I've been reluctant to try it out...especially in my kitchen...LOL Do you know how to tell if they're good? If I get up the nerve, I guess maybe I'll try to find a new gasket at one of the farm supply stores near us.

From Philbe...Thanks Violet. As mentioned before, I bought a used one early this summer but don't know how to tell if the gasket's any good. Will look at farm supply stores around here for gaskets that match the brand of the canner. Then...perhaps try a really small batch. Can you only can a couple of jars...just in case things don't go as hoped for?

If the gasket is soft and pliable, without any nicks or cracks in it, it should be good. You can test your canner by just putting 2"-3" of water in it and run it through its paces. After venting and pressure is allowed to build up, you should not see any water or steam existing from the area of the gasket/lid. If you do then the gasket should be replaced.

I had to replace mine eventually. I finally found a gasket at ACE Hardware(cost about $10). I took the old one with me and "matched" it in the store. Hint: if you have the box or the manual, the model no. should be printed on it somewhere. That is a much preferred way to buy your replacement!

My canner has the model number on the bottom of the canner. You can usually look it up on line and get parts for them.

You can't always get what you want, babe

But if you try sometimes, you just might find

You get what you need.
