As stated by Ball Corporation, the main US producer of canning supplies, in their 2016 All New Ball Book of Canning and Preserving, page 274:
"To ensure proper pressure and temperature is achieved for safe processing, you must process at least 2 quart or 4 pint jars in the pressure canner at one time."
Note that we only recommend canning on our 10Qt or larger units.
