From The Manufacturer

Only the ALL AMERICAN Pressure Canner features an exclusive, precision machined “metal-to-metal” sealing system. These Pressure Canners for canning feature positive action clamping locks that align the cover to the base, forming a steam-tight seal. Since the seal does not use a gasket, the cover can be easily opened and closed. The ALL AMERICAN Canner makes it easy to can fish, meat, vegetables and fruits – it’s the only method the USDA recommends for low-acid foods. All canning pressure cooker models feature a precision machined regulator weight for accurate pressure control and an easy-to-read, 8.5 x 5.5″ Instruction and Recipe Book. Suitable for gas, electric, or flat top stoves. The high heat generated by a pressure cooker can kill more bacteria than a regular hot water bath, making this pressure cooker the ideal tool for canning vegetables and non-acid fruit. The metal-to-metal seal permits venting under unusual pressure conditions, making the seal safer than conventional rubber or composition gasket cookers. Crafted of the finest hand-cast aluminum, this durable cooker/canner features a stay-cool Bakelite top handle, geared steam gauge, automatic overpressure release and pressure regulator weight with settings of 5 PSI, 10 PSI and 15 PSI. The attractive satin finish is smooth and easy to clean. Double thick edges provide added protection at the points of heaviest wear.

Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

This model has an Extra Heavy Duty Cast Aluminum body to ensure that you’re always safe while using it.
It is an absolute gold for canning lovers and those who are interested in home preserves.
A dial gauge allows you to monitor the pressure reached during processing.

What reviewers didn't like

However, the main limitation of this model is that you can’t can fish using this model.
It is quite heavy and built sturdiness in mind. However, this is actually a PRO more than a CON because this is the main reason why this cooker will probably outlive its owner. It is not recommended for ceramic or glass top ranges usage. May take some time for the pot to heat up or cool down.
The only time I've ever had issues with my All American Pressure Canner is one time when I had the lid screwed down crooked. The lid started steaming out the side which alerted me to the problem
