I want to be very clear to potential buyers; this canner is a wonderfully big, enameled canning pot that can easily fit 9 quart-sized jars at one time. HOWEVER, there are a few draw backs:
*This pot is not able to be used on glass top stoves!!! There was nothing on the page detailing this but, the instructions received with the massive beast of a pot made sure to mention this.
*There are no handles to assist in lifting this pot to and from your heat source which may or may not be an issue for you.
*The rim around the top of the opening has very sharp edges.
Six generations of Americans have been using Granite Ware canners to preserve fruits and vegetables. This mini canner is perfect for preserving jams, jellies and salsa. Holds seven pint jars. Comes with rack for easy lifting jars from canner. Granite Ware's high efficiency, quick boiling performance combined with its modest cost make it ideal for canning. The dark porcelain surface and steel core absorbs energy and evenly distributes heat to the contents. Porcelain is fused to the steel at 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit producing a non-porous, inert glass surface that is naturally non-stick. Porcelain can chip if dropped, however this does not reduce the effectiveness of the cookware. It creates a smooth, hard finish that won’t burn and resists staining. It’s also non-porous so it won’t trap odors or food particles and provides a low coefficient of friction – meaning that it cleans up easily and, it is corrosion and chemically resistant so it will last a long time. When fired, the vessel is placed on pins so the bottom and sides are hardened during the firing process into one smooth laminated glass surface. You may notice slight pin indentations where the glass has flowed around the pin that supports the base during firing. The pin marks do not compromise the finish or performance of the vessel. Not recommended for glass cooktops. 11 1/2qt capacity.
