Prices on the parts vary by brand.  The models we carry parts for date back as far as 30 to 50 years. The parts are usually fairly simple to replace, but if you have trouble, you can call our customer service department for tips and pointers.

To know which part you need for your particular pressure cooker or canner you need to get the model number off of it, or if it is unreadable you need to have the specific part number for the part that you need. 

To find your model number on the Presto brand you will need to look in three places, one: the tag on the top of the lid, two: the bottom of the pot, or three: on the side of the pot underneath the handle. There will be the number 409A on the bottom of the Presto brand but this is NOT the model number, it is a listed number and it is on almost all of the Presto brand pressure cookers and canners.

To find the model number on the Mirro Matic brand you will just need to look on the bottom of the pot, and for some parts you need to know the month and year that it was manufactured, this will be a one or a two digit number on top of a two digit number, this is also found on the bottom of the pot and it is usually to the right of the model number.  On the Mirro Matic brand there is also 284H on the bottom of the pot, this is NOT the model number, it is on most all of the Mirro pressure cookers and canners and it is a listed number just like on the Presto.

The model number for the Sears/Maid of Honor is usually on the bottom, but it can also be on the side of the pot underneath the handle.

For the All American the model number will either be on the bottom of the pot or on a tag on the lid.

To find the model number on the Wearever and the Kitchen Pro you will need to look on the bottom of the pot. For the Chef's Design and Maitres you will not need to find the model number you just need to know what quart size it is, this is usually stamped on the bottom of the pot, if you cant find it or it has rubbed off all you need to do is get a quart jar and fill it with water and see how many times it takes to fill your pot all the way to the top rim. 

If you cannot find the model number of your pressure cooker/canner or the part number, just call our customer service department and they will do the best they can to help you determine which parts will be right for your item. We will be glad to help you in anyway we can to find your pressure cooker parts.
