Do you need your pressure canner tested?  

A pressure canner is a very important piece of equipment when it comes to home food preservation. Making sure it is working properly is a precaution that should be taken seriously. To avoid any issues with the proper function of your pressure canner, the USDA recommends having gauges tested annually.  OSU Extension Clermont County offers testing of your pressure canner gauges and inspection of the seals and safety plugs for only $5!

Appointments are requested by calling 513-732-7070 or email jenkins.188@osu.edu.
