How to Choose the Best Pressure Canner/Cooker.
Home canning is becoming very trendy again. Decades ago, nearly every home was stocked with home canned vegetables, fruits, meats, stews and soups. Today, home canning is making a huge comeback, and many people are looking for the best pressure canner to suit their needs. Inexperienced canners can easily be overwhelmed by the various types and sizes of a pressure canner/cooker. Pressure canners/cookers are the only safe way to can and store most vegetables, stews and meat.
One of the most important factors in choosing the right pressure canner/cooker for the home is the size. Canners typically run anywhere from a 6 to 23 quart capacity. The smaller ones are generally purchased as multi-functional cookware. However, a small pressure canner/cooker is not a good idea for a home that plans on canning a great deal of food.
Another important factor is the material the canner is made with. Aluminum is a popular material because of its ability conduct heat. Unfortunately, an aluminum vessel does not hold up as well as a stainless steel canner. The aluminum can become dented, dinged and pitted overtime with normal usage. Stainless steel tends to be more expensive. Canners made with stainless steel are typically on the smaller end of the scale and are generally used for cooking meals as well as some canning.
Price is certainly a major deciding factor. An average pressure canner/cooker will cost around seventy to a hundred dollars. Stainless steel canners will range between one and two hundred dollars. As with any kitchenware, brand names tend to be more expensive. Brand names like Mirro and Presto are on the lower end of the price scale, but are very popular among home canners.
