to find your Presto Pressure Cooker/Canner Model Number
If you have a newer model you can usually find your model number
on the bottom of the pressure cooker or canner body. It may also
be etched into the pot beneath the body handle. If it's a very old
model, the number can probably be found on a label attached to the
top of the cover. Old units have model numbers like 40, 50, 204,
Newer models usually start with 01/ or 02/ followed by letters like
PA or PC and more letters and/or numbers. The most recent styles
always have seven digit (all numerical) model numbers starting with
01 or 02 (Example: 0136001).
Please Note - All Presto Pressure Cookers have
the number 409A stamped on the bottom of the cooker, this is not
the model number. It is a number used to indicate the product's
listing by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
