  • Pressure CookerOSU Extension Morrow County tests the accuracy of pressure canner dial gauges.
  • Dial gauges on pressure canners need to be tested every year to make sure the pressure is reading correctly.  Gauges that read high cause under-processing and may result in unsafe food.  Low readings cause over-processing.  An accurate gauge is essential for safety!
  • Please call 419-947-1070 for an appointment to have your gauge tested or you can drop off your canner and lid with gauge and gasket attached for a complete inspection.  We'll let you know when it's ready for pick up and provide you with a completed inspection form.
  • Only dial gauges need to be checked (weighted gauges need not be tested). 
  • FREE for Morrow County Residents/$5 for out of county.
