I'm told a quality pressure canner is a once in a lifetime purchase. So just curious to see if anyone's got a gently used spiff-tacular one they'd sell. I'm new to canning, but can't stand the thought (as much as I've seen my Wal-mart purchases crap out) of spending a gob of money on something that won't last. Thanks!

Look on craigslist. I found one of mine there for $40.00. The woman threw in a couple dozen jars as well.

Auctions! So many people overlook auctions as a source for almost anything you need. Go to http://www.auctionzip.com/ and type in your zip code. You'll get a list of upcoming auctions in your area. About 80% of my nearly 2000 jars came from auction. Averaged out, I probably spent about $0.10 per jar.
