Yes, but as with all canners, stay in the kitchen and keep an eye on it. I would not keep it at high heat for an extended period of time. Once your water is boiling, turn the gas down to maintain the boil.

Yes, I used mine yesterday with pints. At first I thought they wouldn't fit, but then I realized the handles open up and hang on the side of the pot, allowing me to load the pints and then left them down into the water without touching the water. And getting them out is easy, just lift it up and hang on the sides. Very convenient!

THE RACK ITSELF HAS HANDLES TO LIFT THE RACK OUT AND SET ON THE TOP OF THE POT. WORKS BEAUTIFULLY.

answer 2
The rack has two handles which stick up in the pot when the rack is set into it. You lift the rack of jars by those handles. There is a bend in the handles which allows you to suspend the jars with the tops a few inches above the water when you need to.

Yes it has a rack lifter built in to the rack itself. Its kinda nice as you can lift the rack by the lifting arms and expand them to rest / suspend on the top rim of the pot to bring your jars out of the hot water and then lower them again if needed.

answer 1
This is a water bath canner - a pot, a rack to hold jars, and a lid. Pressure canners are totally different, and used for different types of foods than water bath canners - they are also much more costly. A good book on preserving foods will give you details on which type ofcanner to use for the foods you want to preserve, and how.

It's not a pressure cooker. It's used for canning high acid foods that only require what they call a water bath.
It's an old fashioned tool that doesn't cost a fortune.
It's a must have for canning tomatoes, jelly or jams.
I love that they ship it right to your home for very nominal shipping.

actually, this canner is only appropriate for using on a glass cooktop. it has a wavy bottom which caused it to burn a hole in the bottom of the canner on my electric coil range. This caused sparks galore. I am now left with a non-functioning stove and over 15 lbs of produce I cannot use.

so yeah, if you have a glass cooktop, this is the appropriate canner for you. If you have an electric-coil range, then look for a flat-bottomed waterbath canner.
