23 Quart Presto Canner/Pressure Cooker $70 8/11/12 only

Post  elliephant on 8/11/2012, 10:33 am

It's the Daily Deal at Target, which also means free shipping.

Currently $75 on Amazon. I bought it for $80 on Amazon back in June.

let me put this into perspective for you.... at my local Agway store, this canner is $129.00.

Now listen to Rooster and have fun at the store. Wink

I tried to order that canner on the Amazon sale 2 weeks ago. Amazon cancelled my order, cancelled my credit card information, locked me out of my account forcing a password change and send me a note to check my bank as someone had stolen my account information. Turned out it was because I ordered from an African IPO address. I decided to wait until I return to the the US.

This is my first year of canning all by myself. It's been fun and rewarding and easy. Just read the directions carefully. My husband convinced me it canNOT blow up! And went over the parts with me and showed me why it can't happen. If you want, I'd be glad to come over and get you started!

modern canners CANNOT BLOW UP. if you can learn to drive a car, you can learn to operate a pressure canner. if you can willingly get into a car day in and day out and put your life in the hands of strangers you pass on the road, you can completely, utterly, totally trust pressure canning in your own kitchen.

I don't have a pressure-canner cooker, but I do use my pressure cooker all the time and LOVE IT. Its a Fagor, not Presto.

I hang my head in shame. I have to admit that when I first saw this thread I thought "WOW! 23 quarts of PESTO! I am jealous!"

thanks that is great! I'm not the only one who does things like that!

I've been scared of pressure canning so now I won't have to be! Thanks for all the wise words!
