Finally, an automated electric canner for simple home canning! The Presto Precise canner is the first digital pressure canner that meets USDA home canning guidelines for safely processing low-acid foods such as meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables, with no adjustments needed for high altitudes. It also doubles as an electric boiling water canner for preserving fruits, jams, jellies, and salsa. Simply select the canning method and time and the digital interface guides you through the canning process. LED display icons illuminate each step from start to completion. An innovative sensor automatically detects the exact processing temperature and holds it for the time required to safely preserve foods. The digital canner preheats the jars and keeps them hot until each jar is filled and ready to process. To simplify the boiling water method, the temperature sensor detects the boiling point and automatically activates the canning process for the required time to safely process high-acid foods. No need to watch or adjust settings, and the canner holds heat inside keeping your kitchen cooler. Includes an instruction book with research-based recipes that use standard processing times in accordance with USDA guidelines, and a handy quickstart guide. After canning is finished, the removable pot enables easy water removal and cleaning.
