    Done both with no issues. Only canned a few times but have used my pressure cooker a lot with no trouble.

    Just stick by it with a beer for the first 10-15 minutes to make sure the temps level out and stay constant.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Been using mine for 10 years with no problems and I love how easy it is to clean. No more digging stuff from under the burners.

    Only issue I have seen was when Vince's kids dropped a pot on his and broke it.

    I bet she would have the same options on Airboats, guns, etc... LOL

    You know if Moma ain't happy.... Well you know.

    I've done it many times with no issues. I turn mine on hi to get the jiggling started and then turn it down to around 2 or 3 in order to get it to jiggle once every 30 seconds or so. No problem

    Same here...no issues. Do the same thing agoyne stated above. After 15 mins it's sitting between 2 and 3 setting and good to go.
    Love the ease of cleanup too, especially after frying bacon!

    I've canned on mine a bunch of times and clean up is easy- I've heard the same thing about not canning on one...don't know why but it apparently isn't an issue given the number of folks here who've done it.

    I generally prefer to can outside on my camp stove though.
