We will check your gauge pressure canners. We don't check weighted canners. Unless something happens to the weight such as a crack or a chip, they should be fine. Pressure gauges can go bad. Getting them checked once a year is good. All you have to bring in is the lid.  There is no charge for getting them checked at the office. Please make an appointment.
