All American Pressure Canner That Will Last Forever…

All American Pressure Canner

We have had this ‘All American Pressure Canner’ for a number of years and I just wanted to post about it because it’s so awesome.

And before you panic at the price tag, remember this, you get what you pay for. And this one is no exception.

While it’s different for everyone, there are certain things that I’m willing to pay for the best. Why or what? For the things that I plan on using for the rest of my life, only have to buy it once. Also for particular things that I feel are essential or very important to my overall preparedness or way of life.

   

While I do have the Presto pressure canner (my first), (and it still functions as expected) not long afterwards I picked up the All American Pressure Cooker Canner.

And WOW what a difference… This one will last seemingly ‘forever’.

All American Pressure Canner Is The Best

Best is always a subjective word. HOWEVER, in this case I would bet that 99.99% would agree that they’re the best in this category.

 

EXTRA HEAVY DUTY.

You can tell just by looking at the picture. This canner is made of extra heavy duty cast aluminum construction.

The first thing I noticed when I received mine was it’s weight. While not unmanageable the thickness of the walls and cover is substantial. Makes me feel a bit better while under pressure!

Note: Due to it’s weight this pressure canner is not recommended for glass stove tops which may break.

Tip: Due to fully loaded weight, I load it up while already setting on the stove top.

 

Cover Clamps

The All American Canner has a particularly unique and obvious feature. Clamping locks for the cover which ‘screw down’ in a clamping action to hold the cover closed and sealed to the base.

There’s no gasket! A unique metal to metal seal is formed between the cover rim and the pot itself due to it’s precision machining.

It seemed odd at first without a gasket, but it works!

Because there is no gasket, the cover is opened and closed easily.

 

Steam Gauge AND Weighted Pressure Regulator

I really like the fact that it has both a readable gauge AND weighted regulator (5, 10, 15psi).

 

2 Vents for Safety

For extra safety there is an over-pressure plug vent along with the normal vent. I like that…

Made in the USA

The All American Pressure Canner has been manufactured by Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry since the 1930’s.
