    Default Pressure weights?

    Ok I have a Presto 17 qt cooker/canner. it came with a 15 LB weight. I have seen recipes calling for 5 or 10 pounds of pressure. I did a quick search trying to find weights in 5 or 10 lbs to buy but have come up empty. Question #1, are there weights in 5 and 10 for my cooker, if so where?
    Question #2 if not how do I adjust cooking time for a 15 lb regulator when the recipe calls for so many minutes at 10 pounds?

    Does your weight look like this?


    If so, it comes apart and you remove rings to get the proper size weight.

    If you don't have an owner's manual, you may be able to find one at the link above.

    A model number will help to identify the model you have.
