I am hoping to find some advice on the smallest pressure cooker(6 qt) that will also be suitable for CANNING meats and stews (ie; low acid) Perhaps there is already a thread on this subject. ? I am writing an article on the subject of micro harvests and small batch canning of leftovers.
So far the Presto 8 qt seems to be the smallest.

first off, if you want to can meats, you will need a pressure canner (also known as a sterilizer) these come as small as 10 quarts.
The difference is the pressures they can attain (5-15 psi) unlike a pressure cooker which can reach 5 psi. but not the higher pressures needed for canning meats.
 
Whatever. Here's a tiny ad:
