We purchased this canner last year and got to use it this year. We had to wait until we changed stovetops in order to use a canner and pressure canner. We are very particular to use stainless steel in all cooking and we use glass or stainless for all baking. We were excited to find a stainless steel canner. The canner works very good and we really like the glass lid. After two weeks of heavy usage, however, the rack has already rusted and there are rust spots on the bottom of the canner. Real stainless steel that rusts???? We wouldn't purchase this canner again. We see that it is made in China, so, in the future, will stick with stainless steel products made in the U.S. We've never had a stainless steel pot or pan, that was made in the U.S., rust and we've had stainless steel pots and pans for years. We love Lehman's and purchase frequently. Their customer service is excellent and every other product we have purchased has been wonderful.

After 6 weeks of use, the wire rack has rusted and permanently stained the bottom of the canner. I'm returning product to manufacturer, and buying a different one.

We really appreciate this canner, it is much quicker to boil than our old one, and, with the glass lid, we can see the water start to boil which makes the water bath timing so much easier. Also, with the flat bottom it works better on our glass top range and being stainless steel we won't have to worry about it rusting out like the old one.
