I love this canner and personally own several of them so I may preserve several batches at once. It is perfect for use on gas stovetops. While it may work on electric stovetops, it can get quite heavy when full so be sure to learn how much weight a glass top stove can handle per burner. If you have an induction stovetop, click here for the the 23-quart Induction Compatible Pressure Canner model.

The Presto 01781 Pressure Canner is a tall, aluminum stovetop dial gauge pressure canner designed to preserve food in jars. This model permits you to double stack your pint jars using a second flat rack, or triple stack your half-pints using three flat racks.

Air vent/cover lock allows pressure to build up only when the cover is closed properly and prevents the cover from opening until pressure is safely reduced. Doubles as a water bath canners for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, pickles, and salsas. Extended 12-year limited warranty.
