Quick Answers



How often should I oil the gasket on my pressure canner?

Gaskets on older models may need a light coat of vegetable oil once a year. Gaskets on newer models are pre-lubricated and don't need oiling. Check your instruction manual if you are in doubt about how often to oil the gasket.
