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 21-1/2-quart capacity holds 19 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

This is a very high quality, heavy weight canner. It practically screams, "Industrial strength!" The slide clips and screw-downs securely fasten the lid to the pot. No blow-outs with this baby. The weighted pressure gauge makes operation almost foolproof. And no gasket required! Before purchasing a canner, I did a lot of reading in the rec.food.preserving news group. I saw endless inquiries about sources for gaskets for canners ranging from a few years old to many decades old. It was clear some of these people had spent many, many hours in search of a gasket. Avoiding the need for a gasket became a major criteria for my purchase.

I've had my canner for a couple years and am still impressed with the quality. There are only two negatives I can think of. The heavy weight of the canner is a plus for strength and longevity, but it can work against you. The canner weighs 20 pounds when it's empty. Unless you work out regluarly, you're not going to fill the canner on the counter and then carry it to the stove. The other potential negative is the height. This canner requires at least a 16 inch clearance over your range. If your range has an upper oven the canner might not fit.

send me the money and I'll throw it away for you. I received my Grandmother's when she passed away and have more that pleased with it. I can't add anything the other reviews other that mine is over 30 year old it is in perfect shape. I've been told that my Grandmother sent 1000's of cans through this in her day and I intend to do the same. The company's web site is very good if you need replacement parts but I doubt you'll ever need them. I had my local Ag extension agent test my gauge (the original) and it is still accurate enough for canning. This is the only part that should ever really need replacing since it does not have a seal. I am fortunate enough to have the old school Instruction and Recipes book (list price ¢60) that has canning recipes that I have not been able to find anywhere else. Buy this and pass it on to your grandchildren!!!

I've had my Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry All American pressure canner for a couple of years, and I'm still very happy with the purchase. I can use it to make a humongous batch of chicken stock, then turn around and can that very batch... I agree with the comments made by the first two reviewers concerning its weight, size, etc. This will outlast you and your kids. Very well made, and the company has a full line of replacement parts should they ever be needed.
I give this five stars as a canner, and three as a cooker. The only reason I downrate it slightly as a cooker is that it is so big and unwieldy. If you regularly have to cook huge batches of food, though, this may be just what you need. If you don't ordinarily cook up enough to feed an army, you might be happier with a smaller (say, 6 to 8 quart) pressure cooker (I love my Kuhn Rikon 6 quart stockpot). Also: if you are planning to can a LOT of stuff, you might consider getting the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry model 930--it can handle 14 quart jars at a time, whereas this one can only handle 7 quart jars.
All in all, a very well made item. Get this and a copy of Lorna Sass's "Cooking Under Pressure", a copy of the Ball Blue Book, and go conquer the (canning) world.

Size: 21.5 qtColor: Silver
I do lots of cooking and canning - sometimes just for family, sometimes for large gatherings - and this cooker has made that chore much easier. Even when cooking for family, I'll make 2 chickens at a time, that way I won't have to cook another night. While the chickens are cooking, I'll also have stock to make rice or soup with. Forgot about cooking dinner? This baby can take 2 frozen rabbits from the freezer to the dinner table in less than an hour. Its large size makes canning large batches quick work. The only drawback I have is washing it - it is heavy, and if you don't have a big enough sink or a hose to rinse it out, then your in for a workout. I have a double sink and it fits in nicely - a must for anyone with a large family !

I have owned several gasketed canners, and after using the gasket-free kind, I'll never go back. I purchased my first All-American King Kanner about 30 years ago at an estate sale for $5. I have no idea how old it was when I bought it. I'm still using it. I have also owned a Presto canner, but buying the right gasket became a pain, and the bottom of the canner became so pitted that I thought it unsafe to continue to use it. Since we can so much, I wanted to still have two canners, thus the purchase of my second All-American. We just finished processing hogs, and used the canner for a batch of soup broth.

As others have mentioned, this is one serious hunk of metal. We have to put it on the stove burner, then load it. Lifting a loaded canner is beyond my capability. One has to be patient letting the canner come off of pressure before unloading the jars.

Since I had no instruction book with my other A-A canner, the one that comes with the new canner is really handy. Wish we could upload photos because I took one with both canners side-by-side.

I didn't get a chance to actually use this item so cannot review its performance or durability. Though it looks to be a workhorse. However, the outside of the box and the directions inside warn to NOT use this canner on smooth glass or ceramic cooktops because of its weight when fully loaded. At the time this was not mentioned on the Amazon website. So I returned the item unused rather than risk my stove. Otherwise I would have given the canner a try.

11/23/12 I've been watching comments about this review with interest - it amazes me how emotional people get. Anyway, two comments I feel need addressing. First, I gave the product a 3 star rating because Amazon doesn't allow a comment without a rating and because to me a 3 out of 5 is neutral - neither good nor bad which since I didn't actually use the product (but did inspect it) I felt fair. Second, several people commented that because I didn't use the product I should not have reviewed it at all. The purpose of a review, in my opinion, is to aid others in making a choice about a product. Since the directions to this canner gave information that was not in the product description I felt pointing this out would be helpful. At the time I write this addition 80% of those readers who made a choice about this review found it helpful. That's good enough for me.
