Preserve meats, vegetables, and fruits with confidence! Pressure canning is the only method recommended safe by the U.S.D.A. for canning low-acid foods. This canner features an easy-to-read dial gauge to ensure accurate pressure control. Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until pressure is safely reduced. Canners are constructed of extra strong, warp-resistant aluminum. Includes cooking/canning rack and complete instruction/recipe book. 16 Quart Liquid Capacity (15.1 Liters).
