I'm wanting to purchase a pressure canner. Years ago I had one (an old, hand-me-down) but then I had a couple of scary incidents with it (probably operator error) and got rid of it.
Since then I've counted on my freezer(s) to preserve many foods that I could/should pressure can. Now I'm thinking I need to depend less on those convenient, energy-using big white boxes for some of our food storage. Therefore, I am in the market for a good, reliable pressure canner.
So I'm coming to you today, dear and trusted readers, for recommendations. To those of you who have a pressure canner, what brand do you have and are you happy with it?
If you're in the contemplating stages of a purchase as I am, have you settled on a brand or specific model while saving your pennies for the purchase?
Any and all info you'd care to share will be much, much appreciated. As far as a recommendation, there's nuthin' like first-hand experience with a product by real people doin' the real thing . . . and I value all of your opinions even if you're in the same boat I am and just researching out that pressure canner on your wish list.
Thanks a bunch!
