I believe it is a presto but I could be wrong, it was bought at a rummage sale. I plan on doing a clean test run to make sure the seal is proper today after I get off work, hopefully everything is good and I can start canning and doing grains. :smile:

It does look like a Presto.  Presto made some PCs for Sears too.

I suggest that you look up the manual on that PC and read it.  The main thing that surprised me with the Presto is that they have a heating limitation of 12,000 BTU.  So if your stove can crank out 25,000 BTU it will warp the bottom of the Presto PC.  Otherwise the Presto PC works just fine.

yes   get the Manual on line as TheCan said .it should be available   as a PDF  down load also brands like Presto and  AA sell all the replacement parts at reasonable prices if you have faulty Gage or need a gasket ect

 

you can also buy test strips or test vials that tell you if its reaching correct temp at 15 PSI

 

Good luck be careful

Thanks for the heads up bezevo, but I use a electric stove top so I'm not to worried about warping the bottom I just get the pressure where I need it and adjust it accordingly.
 

Thanks coorsmikey, by the time I saw that I already downloaded the manual but it's definitely handy for whoever may need it.
I did a test run and all works well with it, I'll be doing some canning and grain runs before to much longer. Bout time to get back in the swing of things. :happy:

I have seen what aluminum clad pot bottoms do when boiled dry on both gas and electric, and it's the electric stovetops that melt into the aluminum.

 

On edit: After searching, 20,000 BTU is the highest I could find for a gas burner.  I calculated the BTU from watts on an electric burner at the highest watts to be only about 8,500 BTU. 

 

So, it does look like gas can create more BTU total from a burner, but I have to think that for a point in contact with a pot, pan, or PC, the electric heat of an electric burner element is higher, and this is in direct contact with the pot, where the gas flame is mitigated by greater heat dispersion.   But, I may be wrong about that.  I have seen gas warp a pot bottom, but never seen it melt one.

They definitely warp... That is no lie... The presto caners are relatively cheap so I typically just deal with a little warpage and then replace...

I have had lots of Presto PCs, and never warped one yet.  These were all stainless steel, except my bigger Presto canners, which are aluminum.  But also, I have never boiled one dry.   I don't think either stainless or aluminum will handle being boiled dry for long without warping.

I think most of warning about BTU limits come into play when people try to use an outdoor, turkey fryer type, gas burner, some of the larger ones go upto 200,000 BTU.

 

If you push huge amounts of BTUs into the pot faster then it can transfer them to its contents, then your going to warp or melt your pot.

Agreed.  My propane brewing burner would destroy the Presto.  However, I checked the big burner on my (gas) kitchen stove and its rated for 25,000 BTU so when I use my Presto, I just do medium high or a small burner.  It's worth checking.

Is that how America became a melting pot?

I don't know, but I think it was in the war of 1812 :)

If I recall correctly, an aluminum cooker that's been run dry could be dangerous as the aluminum may have been made very brittle depending on how long it was heated while dry.

 

I did some searching for more concrete info about that but couldn't find any, so this may not be as much of a concern as it seems like it should be (but better safe than sorry... and peppered with aluminum shrapnel).

I get warping on an electrical stove top if I turn them up all the way.
