Beth, what brand of pressure canner do you use?

It's so comical... DH yells out to me this afternoon from his den, where he's watching Baseball, "HEY! LOOK! There's that Pressure Cooker again. Do you still want it?"
So I filled him on what you folks have shared with me so far.

Mine is an almost 20 year old Presto, model 01750. I used to have it regularly tested at the extension office, and I do keep a few gaskets on hand. And I always read the instructions before each canning season even though I have been canning 40+ years!

I have a 5 burner gas range. My canner will hold 7 quarts or 9 pints and I'm not sure how many half pints. I'll check tomorrow on that.

Questions, questions, questions ...
Mine must be a 16-17 quart as it holds 6-7 quart jars, 10 pints, 12 half pints. Gas stove top, we are about 1000 feet above sea level. Yes I can tomato sauce, meat, dried beans, green beans, corn, in the pressure canner.

I can jams, jellies, pickles, sauerkraut, apple sauce, apple butter, fruit in syrup, in the water bath canner. I also acidify my tomatoes and make ketchup and use the water bath canner.
