Default Re: pressure canner vs. pressure cooker

There can be a difference. Some models are sold as canner/cookers and some are sold as cookers only. To safely can, the canner must consistently maintain fifteen lbs of pressure. Some pressure cookers only go as high as thirteen. Pressure canners vs cookers, also have a rack on the bottom to keep canning jars off of the bottom of the canner. My small pressure cooker was also sold as a canner, it holds three pint jars at a time and has a variable guage that adjusts between 5 and 15 lbs. My larger cooker was not designed for canning and doesn't get up to 15 lbs or pressure. I think on low it is 7 lbs and on high 11 or 13 lbs.
