Gaskets should be replaced periodically, as they will harden over time and stop working — which will cause seal loss, and your cooker won’t work. Tip: When not in use, gaskets can be removed from cooker lid to maintain proper shape for longest life.
Can you use a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker for canning?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!
With any pressure cooker, be sure to add sufficient water. Complete evaporation will spoil your food and damage the cooker. If you want, you can keep food suspended above the water by using a trivet.
