Very valid point, although my mom for a good many years used the same jars 
over and over.  We did most of our canning with hot baths to seal them and 
only rarely (basically only when we HAD to) used the pressure cooker.  I 
still remember how to do most of the canning my mom and I did, even though 
it was enough years ago I should have forgotten lol...
