My find

berrybusyMay 31, 2012

Found at Goodwill - 14.99

Mirro Canner

16 qt (one layer size, anyway)

Newer, but still made in the USA,

needs a weight set and probably a new gasket

Just couldn't pass it up

Now I can get started on the next batch of veggies while the other one is cooling down

Any recommendations on where to find the gasket?

The new Mirros aren't the same and I don't think I can just pick one up at the hardware store.

Congrats on a great find! If you have the model number of your new canner, you can check around at different hardware stores for a new gasket. I think True Value was a shop I found some at. You can also check at Rural King stores and Tractor Supply stores if you have them in your area. Check any 'mom and pop' type hardware stores in your area as well. You can also go to the Mirro website and see if they have anyone in your area listed as carrying them. If you don't find them in your area, let me know your model # and I'll see what I can find here. There's loads of places that carry all the canning supplies in this area. If you are going to order your weight set from Mirro, you'd probably want to consider ordering the gasket for your new canner at the same time.

Check out the "Was given a Mirro..." discussion just down the page for links to sources. If you buy it locally take the lid along to make sure it fits as some of the "subs for ..." gaskets don't actually work.

Congrats on the great find.

I've linked to a site that carries lots of parts for different canners. Listed by brand and model number (and differences in manufacture date on some).

Nice find!!!

Take it from me.. the "one size fits all" gaskets do not fit all.
