Pressure canners gauge testing will be on June 7, 2012 from 9:30 – 11:30 am at the Scott County Extension and Outreach office. Pressure canners with a dial-type pressure gauge should be tested each year for accuracy. To have a dial-gauge tested, bring the canner lid only – the entire canner is not needed.

It is not necessary to test weighted or rocker-type pressure regulators because they cannot be adjusted and will usually remain accurate. If you are unavailable at the scheduled time but would like a canner lid tested, you may bring the canner lid into the office ahead of June 7 and pick it up the next day.
