pressure cookers vs pressure canners

Gooseberry | Sep 8, 2008 05:10 PM

Ok, I'm a little confused. I understand from researching online that pressure cookers can only be used to can using the water bath method, but not for low acid canning. My question is, can a pressure canner be used as a pressure cooker? Or is it ONLY for low acid canning?

I had ideally wanted something that could do both. I only make stews and roasts in winter, and tend to can in the summer, and wanted one machine to do both things, both to save costs and storage space. Do such things exist, and if so, any recommended brands?
