I am sure that you have answered this in the past but I was unable to find the answer online or in the anthologies that I own. I have canned several different varieties of vegetables: tomatoes, corn, carrots, etcetera this season, and some of my canning jar lids are buckling. I am sure that the culprit is over tightening the bands on my part. My question is the even though the lids are buckled/creased near the edge of the lid they do appear to have sealed. Are these still safe to store and consume at a later date? I have heard conflicting reports.
This buckling or creasing of canning lids seems, in my experience, to be Kerr lid specific. I hate the look of it but have never found that it compromised the seal or storage ability of the canned food in any way, provided the lid sealed properly despite the creasing. — Jackie
Canning chicken broth
I started canning chicken broth in my water bath canner and after 10 minutes I remember it was supposed to be in pressure cooker. I immediately removed jars from water bath and put them in canner. They have all sealed, just wondering if they are safe to use.

Yes, your broth will be fine since you acted quickly and transferred the boiling hot broth to your pressure canner. — Jackie
