Overall Value

The Presto 1781 23-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner is a great cooking device that will help you prepare meals more tasty and healthier than ever before. This 23-quart pressure cooker can hold 20 pint jars or 7 quart jars, which is a lot of you know something about cooking.

But have a look at its specifications yourself:

  • 23-quart pressure cooker/canner holds 20 pint jars or 7 quart jars
  • Constructed of extra-strong, warp-resistant aluminum
  • Suitable for use on both regular and smooth-top ranges
  • Very safe thanks to the air vent/cover lock
  • Easy-to-read gauge
  • Automatically registers a complete range of processing pressures
  • Includes a cooking/canning rack + complete instructions and recipe book

This presto pressure cooker is made only out of the best materials such as warp resistant and extra strong aluminum. Because of that, this cooker will last you for several years at least, that is if you treat it properly. Thanks to the easy to read gauge, visible in the picture on the top-left, you willalways be aware of a wide range of cooking pressures.

“Kauaijohn” about the Presto 1781 23-quart Pressure Cooker/Canner:

I really like this pressure canner and I’ve been using it to can jars of strawberry jam and made my very own tomato ketchup. The great thing about having a pressure cooker is that you can decide yourself what is going into your food, unlike when you buy already canned stuff!

The Good
  • Very well built
  • Easy-to-read Pressure Gauge
  • Air vent/Cover lock
The Bad
  • As with every pressure cooker, you should go to your county’s extension office to have the pressure gauge checked

At the end,

I think that this pressure cooker is a well build, stable and strong cooking device that will enable you to can your very own jam, ketchup and anything else you want! The easy to read and very precise pressure gauge and the air vent/cover lock make this presto pressure cooker absolutely safe to use.
