This 21.5-qt. enameled steel pot with lid and wire rack is 14-in. in diameter and 12.5-in. high with its lid on. It's the traditional favorite for making jams, jellies, preserves, and marmalades. It has a jar capacity of 7 quarts, 7 pints, 7-12oz jelly jars, 7 half pints or 7-4oz jelly jars. Without its rack, this old-fashioned, time-honored porcelain-on-steel pot becomes a perfect preserving kettle for large recipes.
I have had one of these kettles before and they last for years. They are great for hot water bath canning of pints and quarts. The only problem is they are not made to use on smooth surface/glass top stoves. There's a bit of a rim around the outer edge so they will sit on the burner in the middle. But this rim keeps the kettle from touching the surface on the glass top stove.
The porcelin coating chips off of this canner very easily. When it arrived the base was slightly dented which caused the porcelin to flake off and it is rusting where the porcelin used to be. Also, the first time I picked it up by the handles with water in it the place where the handles mount flexed causing the porcelin to chip off around the handles. It is very lightweight and thin metal. For the price I paid I expected more.
Nice sturdy canner. Best deal I could find for the quality I got (adding in shipping of course). I recommend this one if you want/need a canner. I make large quantities of BBQ sauce with my sons and then can them for the upcoming summer parties. This is the best way to go while including the kids!
Oh, I got it a lot quicker than I was expecting as well.
After using a stockpot for ages, I finally splurged on a *real* canner! So nice to have the head-room to can pint jars! Also, the basket keeps the jars separate, so I don't have to keep checking the movement of the jars as they boil.
canner i sheavy with a flat bottom that stays flat on the burners of the stove. It's heavy constructioon allows me to feel that it will last a long time and the jars will not warp the kettle after many years. Hard to find item but well worth the price.

We love canning summer peaches at their ripe, juicy best. Come winter, all you'll need to to do for a warm and comforting cobbler dessert is open a jar of peaches and stir up a quick streusel topping.
