A very handy kitchen tool. Makes very good soups and stews in a very short time.
However, any canning I’ve tried is not impressive! Fruits are way overcooked to mush! A boiling water bath is all that is required to can fruit so it’s really no wonder when the canning setting is pressurized in this pot. It comes with canning instructions but ignore them and consult reputable canning books or university extension web sites for much better advice.
I would recommend it for anything but canning.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
