This canner holds 18 jars at a time. The lady who I got it from said it is a double decker canner. Never heard of that before, but think it is a good idea.
This canner is about the same size as one of those copper water boiling tubs. I have a couple of those, but this canner is is better condition than they are. I think must be because the canner sat on top of a stove and was cared for better, the copper boilers sat on an outdoor fire at times. Now I am not an expert, but this is the conclusion I came to...or the owners of this canner just took better care of it.
