It is recommended to test your gauge annually if you pressure can with a dial gauge. This can be done right in the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Hyde County Center for FREE! All you need to do is contact your local office to schedule a gauge testing appointment. No need to haul in your whole canner, just bring in your lid with dial gauge. Our master dial gauge will test the accuracy of your National, Magic Seal, Maid of Honor, and Presto Pressure Canner dial gauges. It is not for All American canners.

Your Hyde County FCS agent can do this for you this spring or again in the fall. If you need testing June-August, other staff members will be able to complete this for you while she is out on maternity leave. Surrounding county FCS agents are also able to offer this service for you.
