Can I pressure can with this antique pressure cooker I inherited?
I have received a "Steamliner Pressure Saucepan" (I believe it says model C-6) A photo is attached. It does not appear to have a gauge of any sort and no instruction manual that accompanies it. Can I pressure can pint jars of food in this unit? If so, at my elevation (in Missoula, MT, 3200') how long should I do this for? Thanks in advance.

So I wasn't planning on using quart jars since they don't fit in this pot, but rather pint jars. I'm guessing this doesn't change the answer though, right?
That is correct. Recipes are tested with pressure canners that can fit up to a quart-size container, so while pints may fit into the pan, I would not recommend pressure canning with it as this could still change the food safety of the recipe.
