Pressure canner gauges should be tested for accuracy each year. Free canner testing is available at the Coshocton County OSU Extension Office by appointment on Mondays. Appointment times are approximately 15 minutes and can be scheduled with the OSU Extension Office by calling 740-622-2265. All that is needed for testing is your canner lid.
