Testing Pressure Canner Dial Gauges
A pressure canner dial gauge should be checked annual to ensure accuracy or if it has been dropped, soaked in water, or shows any other signs of damage. Clemson Cooperative Extension Food Systems and Safety Agents commonly perform these tests in their office and can also inspect the full canner to ensure your canner is ready for canning season.
