    A pressure cooker is designed to cook a meal within minutes, while a pressure canner is designed to process foods over a longer timeframe.....say 90+ minutes, depending on the product. A cooker is not reliable to hold a steady pressure or complete seal of the unit over the longer time needed for canning.

    You can cook a meal in a pressure cooker, but do not use for canning purposes. You must use a pressure canner.

    Although in a pressure canner, you can do both......can and cook a meal.

    Hope this helps.
    Yes spot on generally. Old school absolutely! New school I've heard they make cookers now that you can use for canning with. Personally I'll stick with my weighted gauge canner.

    All American used to make autoclaves that look suspiciously alike to their larger canner brethren.

    I use the canner as an Autoclave at times, other than just for canning.
    We have 2 pressure cookers and a pressure canner that like Socom my wife uses as an autoclave.

    Actually I didn’t know it was also a pressure canner exactly like the pic in the article.

    We have 2 regular pressure cookers and use them on the boat and at home. On the boat they are a huge benefit to preparing meals.

    Getting off topic but the Turkey Baster thing rang a bell.......

    The LGBT community have been a little more imaginative with how to "use" turkey basters!!!!

    https://www.liveleak.com/view?i=00b_1237190610

    Lesbian tries to inseminate partner w/ turkey baster

    "A woman who allegedly intended to artificially inseminate her wife with her brother's semen has been charged with domestic assault and battery......had a 'turkey baster and her brother's semen in a sealed container.......grabbed at her clothes and threatened to impregnate her............Police also confiscated the container of semen and some aluminum foil, which was originally used to hold the semen................ "

    P.S. this was in a LIBERAL run city in mASSachusetts, and the would be lesbian "impregnator" was a member of, the cities "Youth Council".

    Wonder why kids are screwed up these days?

    My wife has both a pressure cooker, and a pressure canner.
    the canner is significantly larger than the cooker.

    If you look on fleabay there are autoclaves made from canners.

    I work in units smaller than turkey basters, more like an eye dropper @ .1 ul.

    You can convert a toaster oven into an incubator if needed with just a different controller and a SSR.

    Put instruments in a basket above the water level and bring to pressure for 15 minutes and done.

    Here is a picture of one of my scopes, none of the centrifuge though.

    That is a cell counting slide on the stage and screen.

    @SOCOM42 Those look like kitchen curtains. You're counting cells at the kitchen table?? 'Course who am I to talk? Doesn't everyone use old glassware to decorate their home?
