Q: can you use this for canning jars of food?
A: Hello Juliet. You can use the Duo model for what's known as "water boil canning". However, please ensure that you do not pressure can in this model. Pressure canning requires a minimum 15psi, whereas the Duo model is only rated up to 12 psi. This means that it does not reach pressures for safe canning. We currently have the 6Qt Pro Plus model that is capable of pressure canning.
