Hawkins Pressure cooker

Postby DomAnsell » Sun Aug 09, 2009 9:54 am

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has used a HAWKINS Big Boy - 22L aluminium pressure cooker. Either for general cooking or canning. I just saw the elements of my stove through the bottom of my current canner an think it is time for a new one.

If you want to take a look at it, it's here : http://www.pressurecooker.com.au/go-72/Pressure_Cookers/HAWKINS_Big_Boy_-_22L_aluminium_pressure_cooker

Hope to hear soon

This is a pressure cooker which is different from a canner. A canner can also be used for pressure cooking but it's designed for home canning.

I use a Presto Canner, and was lucky to get it new from Ebay in the US when the dollar was at $0.90 mine ended up with postage getting it for approx $200 from memory, which at the time was really cheap and redback didn't have them.

Redback trading have the Presto Canner at the best price I've seen http://www.redbacktrading.com.au
