IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE

Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed November 13. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 20 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Pressure canning with Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cookers

We're often asked about pressure canning with Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers. When the first red ring appears on the Kuhn Rikon pressure valve, the internal pressure has been raised to 8 pounds per square inch above the external pressure (235 degrees Fahrenheit). When the second red ring on the valve appears, the internal pressure has been raised to 15 pounds per square inch above the external pressure (254 degrees Fahrenheit). Kuhn Rikon doesn't offer canning directions, but if the 8 & 15 lb. pressure indications fit into the canning directions you're following, Kuhn Rikon cookers will do a great job for you!
