Re: Pressure canner?

I have an 18 qt. Presto and I like it. The box says it will do 7 quart, but I think the most I've ever put in mine is 6. I got mine at Wal-Mart for around $80, so I think the $70 for a bit smaller sounds right on price-wise. Mine is 6-7 years old and I've never had to replace seals or do anything like that. It might help though that I use mine nearly year round. I usually can a batch of broth at least every other week or so, and then obviously the garden type stuff in the summer/fall.

I also use it as my water bath canner-just don't put the lid on.
