I worked as a "utility man" at Gortons of Gloucester years ago and after cans were filled and sealed they were put in giant pressure cookers to sterilize the contents. Of course the pressure may have been what kept them from exploding but I'm guessing that it didn't matter since after they reached temperature the pressure was released and they cooled and then went to labeling. I like the submerged can't reach over 212 theory.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

as aprevious poster says

they can't reach over boiling point even if they are semi-submerged

you can't superheat steam in a suacepan

a pressure cooker maybe

but not a suacepan

so worry not

did you never see a can fail

Wots a Can Fail ? Sounds like an offshoot of the IRA.

Jones, you sure you didn't mean "many a fanned tail" ?

I typically leave the can on its side so it rolls and heats evenly.
I put the can in the water when the water is room temperature and heat the water to boiling.
I make sure I have at least a couple inches of water in the pan at all times so the temperature does not get over boiling.
I only leave the can in the boiling water a couple minutes.
I wait a few seconds after removing the can from the water before opening can.
This is a very convenient process especially when camping.
Is my process safe from a can integrity point of view.
Is my process safe from a chemical contamination point of view.
I got the official answer from Campbel. So now you know how the web team of a major american company handles customer inquires.


Mr David Metzler, we received your message and appreciate the time you took to contact Campbell Soup Company.


I'm sorry to hear that you had difficulty preparing the Campbell Soup Company you purchased.

The heating instructions for our products are developed by the cooks in Campbell's Kitchen. These directions are developed after extensive testing is conducted under a variety of conditions using equipment and utensils of varying age, manufacture and quality. Please understand that no two microwaves or ovens work exactly alike and that some materials conduct heat better than others so actual preparation times may vary. For best results, we recommend that you use the package instructions as a guide but watch closely during heating and adjust the cooking time and temperature as needed.

At Campbell, our number one priority is to delight our consumers. I hope I've been able to answer your question. Please contact our Consumer Response Center or visit Campbell's website if we can be of further assistance.

Thank you for visiting the Campbell Soup Company website.

The most dangerous aspect of boiling tin cans lies in doing so with beans - but not in the boiling itself, but in hanging around the person who just got done eating the can of beans. One should maintain, say, a 50 to 75 yard distance, upwind, to avoid an excruciating death.
