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.
Edit to add------
There are electric cookers out there that claim to work for pressure canner but I doubt the safety of them.
Even if the canner itself claims to work for canning be aware that it has not been tested. I'd recommend getting the proper equipment for safe canning.
Here is an article I found that covers this more fully.
