Free Pressure Canner Gauge Testing Offered July 28

COLLEGEVILLE PA – Canning food with a pressure canner requires an accurate dial gauge to ensure food safety. Free pressure gauge testing of home canners will be offered July 28 (2022; Thursday) from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Montgomery County office of Penn State Extension, 1015 Bridge Rd. Registration is requested.

Participants need to bring only the dial gauge canner lid or gauge itself, not the entire canner. Weighted gauges do not require testing.

To register, call the office at 610-489-4315 for an appointment.
