Extension Columbia County can test the dial gauge on pressure canners. If you have a pressure canner that you’d like to have checked, please bring it in to your county Extension Office. You may also want to review the publication “Using & Caring for a Pressure Canner” by the University of Wisconsin-Extension.
Presto Pressure Canners
The Presto Company will test dial gauges FREE! Remove the gauge from the canner lid, wrap in newspaper, and package in a small sturdy box. Send the package to:
PRESTO Service Department

Eau Claire, WI 54703-3703.
The customer pays the postage to Presto. In most cases, the gauge will be returned in a short amount of time. For more information, phone Presto Customer Service: 1-800-877-0441 or email@example.com.
