Get a big bastard.

You can use a stock pot to water bath some small batch stuff, but a small canner ain’t worth a fugg.

The All Americans are out there and available. Just not cheap.

I picked up one new and one used Mirro canner back in April / May time frame when daughters and I all decided to raise gardens this year.

ETA: Yeah, Jars may get scarce. Paid $25 per dozen for quarts on eBay back in April. Found quarts for $13 per dozen at local Amish store in May and stocked up. Just checked. eBay price now running $47 to $75 per dozen.

We bought a used, never used, Presto canner back last fall. Dollar General here always has lids and bands. Typically jars also. A small city nearby has a honey operation w over 6k jars for sale. Qts are 10$ per 24 in plastic trays. We bought 6 cases to begin with and have done fine. Canned lots of proteins, beans. Our kids have also enjoyed the good luck.
We found our by advertising need on 5Miles. Search took less than 24hrs. No bs.
Good luck w your search.


America, Our Country and we’re taking it back.

Jim, I was inspired by your post to delve into this w/ my Intel and LE sources. Hint: avoid marathons!

I ask once again; How many green beans can you eat in 1 year?

Last year, there was a 23 quart Presto canner at Walmart on clearance for $19.99. Of course, it was one of those items they couldn't find. Typically, they say that those things have been shoplifted. I suppose the Yoders and the Stoltzfoos's put it under their long dresses and walked out with it.

All American is what you want, because when times get bad, you won't be guaranteed a new gasket will be available if needed, and like everyone has said, it can be passed down for generations, and it's 100% USA made.

All of the new All Americans are sold out until October at all dealers, and if things go sideways, there's no guarantee October will be good. You're going to have to come out of pocket big if you want one, unless you get lucky on craigslist or other local site without someone throwing it up, and "not knowing the recent sky rocketing value in the current market, supply/demand.

The new ones, and even some used ones, on ebay are going for 1.5 - 1.5+ times what they sell for new right now.

I got an ancient big one from an old guy’s garage sale a few years back, $2. It was his 90 something year old mother’s and she got it in the 30’s or early 40’s. I put a gauge and a lid seal on it and it works great.

I inherited another big one that’s probably from the 60’s when my grandmother passed last year. I haven’t used it as my stove isn’t big enough for both of them. Too bad you’re so far away Jim or I’d make you a gift of one.

Our semi local, 20 miles away but the closest one, Ace hardware carries them and parts such as seals, rattlers, and gauges. Might be worth a look if you have an Ace nearby.

I use a propane burner for mine, do it outside.

Pressure canning is like reloading. Follow the rules. Don’t try to make the gun or load or canner do something it wasn’t designed to do. Looks like he tried to pressure can a double charge of Bullseye.


If you own multiple pressure canners like myself. Don’t get the weighted bobbles mixed up. 😀

My Mirros don’t have gauges

Just have to learn by ear on the chatter rattle.

Hard pass. It’s supposed to be 105 tomorrow here. Ain’t no green bean on earth worth that kind of misery. Of course if I put the lid on and put it on the porch it might boil and seal them by itself. smile

Meh

Get a cheap one

First time you suck all of the liquid out of your jars as it depressurizes, you stick it back in the closet for 10 years.

Looks like Rural King has Presto's in stock as well.

James may not approve but I'm sure they can handle the whopping 10psi required for canning.

I just remembered Mirros as well!

Our cycles must be in sync.
