Pressure Canner for use on induction stove

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'd like to buy a pressure canner and it seems that the All-American is the brand people really love.  Unfortunately, though, they're aluminum and won't work on my induction cooktop.  :(

 

Any recommendations?  Anyone pressure can on an induction?

 

thank you!

I don't know of any that are induction capable. I really don't think using an induction disk is a good idea. I'd either pressure can on an outside gas burner or get an electric hotplate to use inside.

Thanks so much for your reply, Arduinna.  Can you tell me what you mean when you say it's not a good idea... do you mean from a safety perspective (ie, not getting the canner up to the correct pressure or temp) or do you mean that you think it would harm the cooktop?

 

I would never have chosen an induction cooktop if it had been up to me.  I think this thing is such a hassle.

Do you have one of those magnetic disks that let you use non magnetic cookware on induction? The only ones I've seen are 8 inches. I'd have to measure my pressure canner but I'm sure it's at least 12 inches, probably more in width. You could do a test run and pressure can some water and see how well it maintains pressure with the magnetic disk.

No, and I didn't know such a thing existed!  

 

I don't actually own a pressure canner yet because I don't want to buy one without knowing I can properly use it.  The one I am looking at, though, has a 15" diameter base.

 

Off to look into this idea more

 

thank you!
