Default Purchasing a pressure canner:

Hi Clay,

I find that it generally takes about 2/3 the time of the water bath and my water bath only holds 7 quarts, so if you can get one that hold 14 quarts and do a lot of canning it should work out to some where between 1/3 and 1/2 the time. (mathematically 1/3 but with the extra preparations of an additional 7 quarts - 1/2.) Hope this helps make your decision and if you are planning on canning the following: fish, meat, chicken or beans, pressure canning is definitely the way to go.
