Pressure canning is recommended by the USDA as a safe method for foods that are low-acid like meats, vegetables and poultry. The Presto 01781 23-Quart Pressure Canner and Cooker is perfect for your everyday home canning needs.

It is made with heavy-duty, quality aluminum and has a strong-lock steel lid and stay-cool handles. You also get the accompanying rack that fits into the pot and keeps your jars off of the bottom so the liquid circulates underneath.
