This Presto Pressure Regulator is the 3 piece weight set needed to convert a Presto 16 or 23 quart pressure canner from a gauged to a weighted canner.   It consists of a 3 piece weight set of 5-10-15 pound weights. 2 parts are rings that slip on to the 3rd stemmed piece which sits on the steam valve.  Can be used with all current models of Presto canners including the induction compatible model.

As many canning recipes call for the pressure to be held at 11psi (the standard regulator supplied with the unit is 15psi) you need to monitor the pressure dial to make sure the pressure does not diverge too much from this pressure.   By removing one of the weights from the regulator you have a 10psi weight which then keeps the canner at a regular pressure throughout the process without the need for constant monitoring.   It is an excellent product for those who do alot of pressure canning. Part Number 50332 

Note that even though the regulator is designed to vent excess pressure, if you have the heat source too high it will exceed the ability of the regulator to work effectively and can lead to warping of the canner.  Make sure that the regulator is just gently rocking on the lid when you achieve pressure and not constantly jiggling furiously.

If you buy the Ozfarmer custom made canner it will be supplied with the 3 piece regulator as standard.
