Ball jars have long been approved for pressure canning.
The metal 2 piece lids that accompany these jars are also approved for pressure canning for home canners by the National Center for Home Food Preservation.
Glass typically has a tensile strength of 7 megapascals or 1000psi. But, theoretically, glass can have a tensile strength of around 17 gigapascals or 2,500,000 psi. This is due to the strong chemical bonds of glass.
Stainless steel is always a safe choice. You can find several stainless accessories to use here. Non-stick baking pans are also safe for pressure cooking.
It is important to never run a pressure cooker without water. It cannot cook your food properly without water, and the pressure will build to such an extent that the lid, pressure valve, plugs, and hot food could be thrown all over the kitchen.
Is it safe to use these jars in a boiling-water bath canner or a pressure canner? — No! Mason-type canning jars are best because these jars have been specially tempered to withstand the heat necessary in the home-canning process.
FAQ – Do the jars need to be covered with water when pressure canning? No, jars do not need to be covered like in a water bath canner. Set the rack on the bottom of the canner and heat water until hot, not boiling.
There is a warning on the box that the plastic lids are not to be used for canning. That is true! However, since we drill a hole in the lid the pressure does not build up in the jar. We have successfully used the plastic lids many times in the pressure cooker.
How much pressure does it take to crack glass?

Pressures for plastic containers will be around 12 bar before they rupture. With glass containers, particularly used for sparkling wines and champagnes, the pressure will exceed this - usually exceeding around 16 bar.
While it may seem tempting to throw all the ingredients into the pressure cooker at the same time, this is a mistake that will lead to overcooking part of your meal. Just as with stovetop cooking, ingredients that vary in size and texture (like meat and vegetables) will have different cook times.

Some research even suggests that pressure cooking destroys anti-nutrients, or compounds that inhibit the body's ability to absorb and utilize nutrients. Compared to boiling, pressure cooking destroys more anti-nutrients. Many nutrition professionals promote using the Instant Pot, too.
Think about the thickness of a soda can and the thickness of a pressure cooker. That, plus pressure release valves on the pressure cooker's lid will do exactly that: release pressure. So, no need to worry about pressure cooking soda.
