New, and a Presto question.
I have been lurking and reading for the past few weeks. I have not run across the answer to this question so I'm going to ask it.
I have a new Presto 8qt aluminum pressure cooker. It only has the 1 piece 15# regulator. Will it be OK to purchase the 3 piece regulator to use with the pressure cooker? It has the same vent pipe as the large 23qt. Presto canner.
Before you yell at me - I Do Not Intend To Process/Can ANYTHING in the pressure cooker. I have an All American 915 for pressure canning. I know the Presto 8qt. hasn't been USDA approved as a canner and I didn't buy it with the intent to can with it - only to cook dinner.
The reason I am asking is, there are times that I don't believe dinner needs to be blasted with 15 pounds of pressure; I'm not in that much of a hurry. I'd like the option of slowing things down a bit at times, and figured the 3 piece regulator would give me that option.
I really enjoy the forum. You all are so kind and helpful to everyone. It is refreshing.
