Product Description

Heavy Cast Aluminum Pressure Cooker/Canner

Amazon.com

This heavy-duty pressure cooker's large capacity is probably best utilized for canning (though it would also be great for a number of cooking tasks). A pressure cooker is generally recommended when canning vegetables and nonacid fruit, since the high heat that can be generated will kill more bacteria than a regular hot water bath. Made from cast aluminum, with sturdy screws to seal the lid to the pot, this pressure cooker requires no rubber or plastic gaskets or rings. Its 15-1/2-quart capacity holds 10 pint jars or 7 quart jars. A three-setting pressure regulator valve is included, and the pressure gauge gives a clear reading. Made in Wisconsin, this is an American classic. --Julija Gelazis

When I first ordered this canner, I wasn't sure if I would be able to maintain a steady pressure with my "pulsating" flat-top stove. With the thick aluminum walls, I have no problems at all. In fact, with such thick walls, I can put the burner on "high" and it will slowly build up pressure so I don't have to stand over the stove and constantly monitor as the pressure increases. Once at pressure, it is very easy to maintain the required pressure without having to constantly vent off excess pressure. The owner's manual recommends one to four jiggles per minute. It takes longer for this canner to cool down than others due to the thick walls. I factor this in to my processing time. It will maintain it's pressure (15 psi) for almost another 10 minutes with the burner off. This canner is designed to fit 7 quart jars perfectly. If your looking for a canner, this is it!

One of the labs I supervised lacked funding to purchase an autoclave. We sterilized media broth, media agar, dilution agents, Petri dishes, flasks, bottles, and other microbiology utensils in a Mirro pressure canner. We sterilized a minimum of three batches daily, five and six days a week, year round. The Mirro canners constantly required new seals, yet the lids still frequently warped and leaked all over the stove. We replaced the Mirro canner twice in a year, let alone all of the gaskets we went through. I bought this All American pressure cooker when I saw the unique no gasket design, securing lugs, and the safety features built into this pressure cooker. My micro staff loved this pressure cooker. This All American pressure cooker never leaked, the lid fit perfectly time after time, and all of our batches came out properly sterilized. It impressed me so much after almost two years' use in a laboratory setting, that I am now buying one for my home canning. Made in USA, heavily built, well-engineered for performance and safety, and proven to me in multiple daily uses with three different users, including myself--a great pressure cooker in my experience, far better than the others we tried.

It works great the only dislike is that I have had the lid stuck twice but know now to loosen the wing nuts just a little with about 4 to 5 lbs in the cooker just tell the steam starts leaking out and then let it cool the rest of the way. Besides that it is great PLUS it is MADE IN THE USA.

I bought a presto and used it on my first canning job. All 20 pints of my green beans did not seal. They were all wasted along with all the time it took to prepare them. I then went to the Amish store and bought an All American Canner! While Ms. Miller (unhappy poster) seemed a little mad that the canner was so thick, it made me happy to know it was sound and I did not have to worry about the lid blowing off with all of the All American's safety features. During the winter I can almost a whole beef in about a weeks time. I run two 21 qt. AA Canners on my glass top stove from 8 in the morning till 3 or 4 pm. I have never had a problem with the canner or the glass top stove. I am cautious not to drop my canner. I do not find putting the lid on difficult. You just have to do it evenly. I put the handle end of a spoon all around the lid and make it even on all sides. Happy Canning!

I love, love, love this pressure cooker!

If I had had this pressure cooker 12 years ago I would not have spent and wasted more dollars than I like to admit on various pressure cookers trying to find the right one to cook 3 whole chickens at one time w/o risking kitchen disasters. I have owned the large (12 qt) expensive electric cookers along with a variety of on-the-stove-top models. The teflon coated models wear out quickly and the replacement costs for a new insert is almost as much as the original unit! I cook 3 whole chickens each week to feed to my 2 dogs (1.5 hours and even the bones are eatible mixed with rice and veggies).

Advice: Read the instructions carefully! My first attempt with the cooker taught me several things.

1) you will need more Vaseline around the edges than the instructions call for or you will get steam leaking out a side.

2) bring all the screw clamps up to the top and tighten only until they start to take more effort. Once all the screws are in place then tighten opposite sides together just a bit and work your way around the lid, then do it again until all screws are tightened about the same - do not over tightened.

3) regardless of removing the pressure gauge, as instructed in the literature immediately when it reaches ZERO, you will still have to use a screw driver or a metal strong utility spoon between the lid and pot to snap the lid loose - just stick the handle into the space and pry or turn gently and the pressure will let go and release the lid from the pot.

4) if cooking food in the cooker then you will be using soap and water to clean up and therefore you will have to reapply the Vaseline every single time you use the cooker.

I just purchased this canner and am already impressed. It's extremely sturdy and well-made. Once it was done venting, it pressurized from 0 to 10 pounds in only five minutes and took a bit over 30 minutes to come back down once off the heat which really emphasized the fact that there are no leaks whatsoever. Too, because it is so heavy, it holds heat well. The entire time I processed, I only needed to set my burner setting to "2" and the canner stayed at pressure. That's certainly going to save energy over constantly having to run the flame higher, not to mention keeping the kitchen cooler when you're canning all day!

Since I see so many people commenting on the capacity I will state for the record that it does indeed, hold 10 regular pint jars! As wide-mouth pints are larger in diameter, it will only hold 8 of those. It holds 7 quart jars of either kind. If you're thinking of getting a pressure canner to also use as a boiling water bath, this one will work perfectly for half-pints. Though it's deep enough to boil pint jars, the water level would barely be 1" over. It is not deep enough for boiling quarts - only for pressure canning them. If you want only one tool for all of your canning, my advice would be to buy a larger All-American. This one is big enough for pressure canning nice-sized batches but also small enough to be used for pressure cooking family meals. It's exactly the size I need.

I wish I could say 10/10, would buy again, but as sturdy as this canner is, I fully intend not to have to buy another one in my lifetime.
