Is there a reason that they explode? Is is if they are left to boil dry?
Hi Amy, I've never had one explode so I'm not sure what would cause it to. I think if it was sitting in a dry pan, it may. I just make sure it's immersed in the water and leave it on a low boil for 2-3 hours. I check it every half hour or so to see where the water level is and when it boils down some, I add a bit more to make sure the can is full covered. HTH.
