Figured it out...all good. Still held pressure even though the vent was open. Will check that after work
what kind of canner do you have? This is a problem with the All American; after a while, under heat and pressure, the lid gets molded to fit the bottom perfectly and it becomes difficult to open. Apparently the answer is to rub a very light film of oil over the surfaces

Yes, an All American. I had a thought about the oil. Thanks for affirming.
