Testing Pressure Canner Gauge

Asked May 19, 2019, 11:03 PM EDT

Hello, I have an older 23 qt. Presto pressure canner that I just replaced the dial gauge, sealing ring and overpressure plug with new ones ( I ordered the replacement parts from Presto and they are specific to my canner model). Should I have the canner tested to make sure the new gauge is reading accurately? Thank you - Mary Perez Eagle Point, OR

Thanks for your question. Periodic testing is recommended. Here is an OSU article on it: https://extension.oregonstate.edu/sites/default/files/documents/8836/2018food-preservation-resource-list-county.pdf Good luck!
