As a first-time pressure canner, I researched a long time before investing in this product. Studied the reviews and how-to's and youtube videos in depth. This is such a quality product and was much easier to use than I originally thought it would be. Will be using it for years to come, but in my old age, might have to get someone to pull it out and put it on the stove when canning - it is very heavy. Was very important to me that it is made in the USA. Was worried that it might not fit on my stove because I have a microwave mounted over my stove. However, it fits on the front burners easily, and I still can lift the lid away from me when opening after the appropriate time has passed when canner is finished. Wish I could have purchased the 16 qt canner, but it was gone by the time I decided to purchase. However, the 21.5 qt is great because you can stack the pint jars and fit more into the canner at one time, getting more done at a time. Would definitely make this purchase again if I had it to do all over! Thanks, Overstock, for making this a reality for me!
