Home Canning

When canning for long periods, alternate the use of surface
cooking areas, elements or surface burners between batches.
This allows time for the most recently used areas to cool.
Center the canner on the grate or largest surface cooking
area or element. Canners should not extend more than 1 in.
(2.5 cm) outside the cooking area.
Do not place canner on two surface cooking areas, elements
or surface burners at the same time.
On ceramic glass models, use only flat-bottomed canners.
On coil element models, the installation of a Canning Unit Kit
is recommended. If a Canning Unit Kit is not installed, the life
of the coil element will be shortened.

department. Companies that manufacture home canning
products can also offer assistance.
