Rated 1 out of 5Â by JumpingJackie Hard to use & questionable results
The manual is confusing. To can green beans, one must go to the government website to see how long to process them. Then one has to estimate which of the settings on the canner is closest to what the website says. Two burners are needed for an electric stove canning and one has to transfer the canner from one burner to the other. The whole process is a guessing game...not a very scientific way to can!

I have never owned a pressure cooker/canner before. I think it works great. There is some dripping at the handle before it gets turned to pressure setting. The book says it is normal. The directions in the book could be better. It gives cook time for a roast but doesn't say what pound of meat so we started a chart to get better cook times. It holds 4 quart jars and 6 pint jars. It doesn't come with a steamer basket because this is a canner but I use my adjustable stainless one and it fits fine. The old pressure canners used to be "scarey" but I don't have any safety concerns using this one. Read the book before use! There is some important things to follow but once you understand the basics you are set.

While needing to purchase on-line was initially frustrating, the canning set shipped quickly and right to my daughters doorstep! Purchased as a shower gift (thus the frustration of trying to purchase within a few days of the shower) by my mother, for my daughter. Carrie is a soon-to-be newlywed who intends to have a garden next summer, she will have everything she needs to start the process of preserving healthy foods. So happy with Kohls and their online order process.

Been looking into canning for awhile and hadn't because of the price. Now I will. This is an excellent value.
