New to Canning but Lovin it,
Love my Presto Pressure Canner

I love my presto canner.

The first year I started canning I borrowed a 22 Quart Presto canner from a friend. It was easy to use and the directions in the book were great. That book answered all my questions with recipes to go with it!

The second year I bought my own 16 Quart presto canner. Which I love. It is lightweight and works wonderfully on my glasstop range. But It doesn't do very many pints at a time.

So this year I borrowed my friend 22 Quart and used my 16 Quart at the same time. It was an awesome canning event at my house!! My help and I kept both canners going and canned nearly 50 Quarts of green beans in 1 day! (I allow the canners to cool on their own, I DO NOT use the water cooling method on them)

I love the smaller canner the best, since it is lighter weight it is easier to lift off the range when full. But the 22 Quart and 23 Quart are more versatile since they double as a water bath canner and will process more pints at a time.

I am actually going to buy another canner of my own for next summer. I am amazed at how much you can process at home without all the additives, canning is a much healthier option than store bought can goods.
