Pressure Canner Tester


Do you use a pressure canner to can food? Did you know that if you have a dial gauge on your canner that you should have it checked for accuracy?  

Without an accurate pressure gauge, you can place those that eat your home canned food at risk for dangerous foodborne illnesses, such as botulism.

Many NDSU Extension county offices offer pressure canner gauge testing so you can check to see if your pressure canner gauge is displaying an accurate pressure reading.
