Pressure cooker canners definitely do exist. They are used by really serious canners.

Before I retired, I owned a hardware store in an agricultural area and sold a lot of them.

Yes, I'm aware that pressure canners exist. But they aren't the same thing as pressure cookers, and I don't believe they can be used in the same manner for non-canned foods?

and Serious is What We Were way back in the day, because it was economical.
now, not so much. in our opinion, it is probably better to go with the Instant-Pot.
our PC was used intensively for about 2 months. IP could be a year-round thing.
but...if you do go Pressure Cooker Canning, you will be very popular in the Fall.

Here is a pressure canner that can also be used as a regular PC. My understanding is that pressure canners are pressure cookers. Your original question seemed to have you considering buying an Instant Pot which is a pressure cooker.

Please find some good info on what you want to do. If you want jars of canned green beans or corn, pressure canning is the safe method to use. I have made jam, many years ago, and for that I used an enamel pot with the water bath method. Many years ago a family member used the water bath method to can green beans, but that is not considered safe.

The USDA used to publish a good canning guide.

was going to mention the same thing but decided to let it drop. We too used to have one. We gave it to charily a few years ago as we were just not canning as much as in days gone by.

Our stovetop pressure cooker developed a bow in the bottom. While we could use it on our gas range, when we moved to an all electric house, it no longer worked as well.

We reluctantly donated it (there are folks around here with gas appliances), and bought an Instant Pot. We've been very happy with everything we've cooked in it, but it's not quite the same. There's no "chuffle" sound when it's pressuring, which was one of my favorite kitchen sounds. The Instant Pot just does its thing quietly, and makes a discrete beep when it's finished.

As the weather cools, we'll be cooking in the Instant Pot a lot more, experimenting with soups, stews, and other keto recipes.

I do miss the "chuffle," though...

Our pressure canner has been used for cooking, when we have a huge gathering. Otherwise, I just use it for canning.

No matter how our ancestors did it, you are right:NOT safe. If you want to preserve foods like veggies and do not pickle them you either use a pressure cooker or freeze them.
