One is not enough

My wife and I have two Presto 16 qt canners that bought right after we were married(24 yrs ago).

We do a lot of canning and running two at a time sure speeds things up. We use a double gas burner out on our porch.
We once tried another brand of canner(the heavy type), but they take sooo long to heat up and cool down. The Prestos are quick and plenty durable.

Our local hardware store carries parts but we've only replaced the seal gasket, rubber safety plug, and gauge grommet.

The canners still look great and if we ever had to buy again, we would absolutely buy the same ones again.

    I agree, two presto canners.

    I agree with the two canner option it is much faster. We use the burner on our bar-b-q grill. Brian brings it into the garage. The heat is outdoors and it is close to the kitchen.

    I only have one (It's a Presto) and you are right, I need two. I had never thought to can outside on burners. What a great idea! All that heat NOT in the house. Thank you for that. Going burner hunting this weekend!
