HELP! My new canner arrived and I can't use it on my stove
I impulse shopped on Saturday and bought a 30 quart All American pressure canner. I was so excited to cut my canning time in half by processing 14 quarts at a time. That is until it arrived today and I saw the big bold letters on the top of the box - DO NOT USE ON A CERAMIC OR FLAT TOP STOVE. Apparently I was too busy drooling and missed this “little” detail.
Can I use a hot plate to can on? Or do I need to buy an old coil stove? If I buy an old coil stove I will have to put wiring in the basement so I can can down there as there is no room for a second stove in the kitchen. I am also a little worried about the stability of using a hot plate. Any suggestions?
