Default Re: pressure canner vs. pressure cooker

If you know the pressure is high enough, I don't see why not. But knowing for sure is a matter of precision and I'm not sure the valve on a cooker is cut out for that job.

It's common to take your pressure canner to the county extention office to make sure it will get the pressure you need. I don't know if they would do the test for a cooker.

Also, it wouldn't be a very efficient process if the pressure cooker leaves a lot of free space.

Having said all that, when I buy a pressure cooker, one of my requirements will be space for at least one canning jar.
