Pressure Canner Dial Gauge Testing Service

Pressure Canner Dial Gauge testing offered Tues, Wed, and Thurs from 9am - 3pm at the Washington County Extension office.

Prepare for canning season ~ test your gauge!  Drop by the office at 1815 NW 169th Place, Suite 1000 ~ Beaverton, OR 97006

Testing only takes about 5 minutes per gauge. Pressure canners with a dial gauge need to be tested every year before you use them for accuracy. Canning with a gauge that is off can result in under-processing of home canned foods, which is unsafe.
