Gauges they have on modern canners are about a junkie as you can get.
I did find some new ones (County Line brand )at Tractor Supply that were sitting on 10 pounds already.
Those were really junkie.
My old ones are a work of art.
For All American to put a quality gauge on a canner it would drag the cost up at least another 50 dollars if not more.
With the weight gauge the pressure gauges are nothing more than a pressure indicator anyway to show if there is any pressure in the canner.
It is also a good indicator to show if the vent tube is stopped up for some reason and something to keep an eye on.
You just cant be too careful around a steam pressure vessel.

Happy Fermenting.
