On a canning break all week!

While working all weekend with my one layer canner, I realized that while the taller units were great to save time and heating cost...more jars at once...that I couldn't move one if I had it! Yeah, too heavy. 😁. But I did look at current prices at All American site. WOW. I couldn't justify the $380 investment on mine. I'm loving my unit now. 🤣😁

ETA...bought mine never used couple yrs ago for $25 -- from a man who inheritated a bunch of stuff and didn't know what he had! We're both happy about it. It's a #7, now known as a 921. Yep, that old and brand new...manuals & all. Cost me $32 for the replacement petcock to juggler parts.

how was the headspace? that's normally what can cause differences in how quickly a jar might ping. in the batch of tomatoes i did the other day one jar didn't ping until a few hours later. yep, less headspace...
Not a headspace issue. Jars were two different products, all the jars had consistent head space. Waited 24 hours without sealing. New lids, reprocessed just fine, pinged within 15 minutes after processing.
