As I understand it, pressure canners have gauges for the purpose of regulating the pressure in order for temperature/pressure in a sufficient quantity to kill the bacteria that can cause botulism, a potentially fatal condition. I use a pressure canner for my canning, and I have taken the trouble to get the gauge tested for accuracy. I haven't killed anyone yet! :)

I don't know how you would go about ensuring both consistent temperature and pressure for the period required in order to safely process food in a pressure cooker not designed for canning.

If you are really determined to use a pressure cooker for canning, I would suggest contacting the manufacturer to get their recommendations. Better to be safe than sorry! Good luck.
