Pressure Canning Counter Weight

Asked September 14, 2015, 12:01 PM EDT

Are all pressure canning counter weights the same? I have a pressure cooker and another pressure canner (large) and want to be sure the weight is correct to maintain the pressure in the canner.

Pressure canner and pressure cooker are very different equipment's. Irrespective of weight factor, pressure cooker is not recommended for pressure canning as it cannot maintain specific pressure while canning. I would advise you not to use pressure cooker for safe pressure canning.
