So this may be a dumb question but-

I know that you can stack jars in a pressure cooker without any problems. But what about if you are steaming jars in a pot? Can they be stacked as long as the top still fits on?


My antique pressure cooker won't close anymore and until I have the time to fix it or money to buy a new one I will be steaming my jars, being able to use a big pot would greatly speed that up....

Bummer Perrch...steaming is iffy. Hope you can make it work. I am blessed with fairly new equipment (will fit up to 24 half pints in my PC) so don't have any advice, except maybe ...um...get another PC?

Plan on it once I can afford it, but as of now I have about as much money as I have sense, and thats not much

A moderate steaming for 90 minutes is fine, stacked or not...

if using no pressure, just steaming.
