For example, mine is a 12 quart pressure cooker, capable of holding 7 quart jars.
I wouldn't be happy if it held any less, I've found I've wished for MORE space sometimes, but 7 is ok for my needs. (esp. spawned, goes a long ways)
Some say All American's are great, mine is a Mirro (wal-mart), haven't had any problems.

I just finished making 6 jars using the pf tek,after that--i pc'd them in my pressure cooker.I filled the water just enough so that it'll run for atleast one hour
Here's the problem-pc'ed 6 half pint jars for 60 minutes,by the time i had finished there was barely any water left in my pc.And since i even tried to fill the water line up as high as i can...i got a ton of condensation in my jars afterwards.

I fill my pressure cooker so far,that the bottom of the jars is just touching the water.
If your pressure cooker is pressurised,put the fire on low.

you can add more water just make sure that it only goes at most, halfway up the jars. if you need too. put a washtowel under the jars to raise them up enough out of the water.

And/or jack up the jars in the pot with something so you can get more water in there,
or see if you can score a bigger PC somewhere

Make sure that you are covering the holes in your lids with either tinfoil for the whole lid or tape for just the holes.

The only consistent solution I found was to raise the jars out of the water by placing something under the standoff plate. I usually used a layer of empty halfpints.

Second, You must have lids on your jars.
