Pressure Canning Method To safely preserve low acid foods such as meat, poultry, fish, and some vegetables the U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends pressure canning. The Presto Precise Digital Canner is programmed to follow USDA guidelines. This canner ensures jars are heated properly before food is added, that venting occurs properly, and that food is automatically processed at the correct temperature for the proper amount of time. You do not need to adjust for pressure canning at high altitudes.
Boiling Water Canning Method Use this method to safely process many high acid foods. The Presto Precise Digital Canner uses a temperature sensor to detect the boiling point and automatically holds the boil throughout the required time. Includes recipes with processing times from the USDA publication, "Complete Guide to Home Canning." The Presto Precise Digital Canner is the first digital pressure canner that meets USDA safe canning guidelines. The USDA and the National Center for Home Preservation provide guidelines for home canning. Neither agency certifies or approves home canning equipment.
