Electric Pressure Canner?
My pressure cooker/canner is not working well. So I need to get a new one before our garden starts producing this year.
When researching different types and models, I came across an electric pressure cooker (like the ones found here: http://canningpantry.com/electric-pressure-cookers.html).
Are these safe to use for canning? I would love to use something like this for canning. I think it would be a lot easier than dealing with my electric glass-top stove.
Thanks for your help.
I took a look at the pressure cookers you referenced. They look like a fantastic tool to have for pressure cooking... but, I do not believe they are meant for pressure canning.
For a pressure cooker/canner to be safe for canning you must be able to process at least 4 quart jars. This is the smallest size that is safe.
The cookers you mentioned above do not say how many jars they would handle... and if they were safe for canning I'm pretty sure the seller would mention that.
EDIT TO ADD: I found this electric pressure cooker/canner. It does state that it holds 4 quart jars. You might want to check it out.Fagor Electric Pressure Canner
A commenter pointed out that this is NOT an electric pressure canner..... and she is right. Sheesh don't know what I was seeing.
I've not found an electric pressure canner but if anyone else has, feel free to share here.
