Electric ones are much safer, they self-regulate and therefore rarely explode.

You just have to NOT open it while the food is still cooking in it and all that pressure is built up inside, and you'll be fine! I've been using one for years, never had an issue. Read and follow the instructions, people!!

This reminds me of the Great Grape Juice Catastrophe of 1975. My mom + huge batch of concord grapes generously given to us by a neighbor + a pressure canner = purple walls, ceiling and purple stained tea towels for YEARS. The little pressure valve on the top that is supposed to jiggle and shake and release steam created a geyser of scalding hot grape juice when one of the jars broke inside the canner. Thank goodness were OUT of the kitchen at the time. Looking at this picture, I'm thinking the same - someone could have been killed by that thing!

Claudia Machado

Just keep the valve clean and everything will be alright. Never open it before releasing all the steam.

Jose Baeyens
