Home Canning: Pressure Gauge Testing
Nebraska Cooperative Extension provides dial gauge testing for pressure canners as part of educational programs on safe home food preservation. Results of dial gauge testing, conducted in a multi-county area over 25 years, demonstrate the need for annual dial gauge testing for accuracy to produce safe home processed food. Gauge testing provides Extension educators a "hook" to position themselves as the local food safety experts.
