The All American line of pressure canners offers the best and safest method for home canning. The U.S.D.A. recommends that pressure canning is the only way to can meat, fish, poultry and all vegetables. This unit has the capacity needed for preparing large quantities of food and pressure cooking inexpensive meat cuts to juicy tenderness in a short time.

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

25+ years of heavy use and still going strong
Silvia M
I've used this model for pressure cooking legumes, grains, and various types of meat, stews, soup etc. It has withstood almost daily use for all these years and still functions as if it were brand new. I've never used it for canning so have no experience with it in that regard but if you need a workhorse of a pressure cooker this will do the job.

Love this canner!
Peggy Bay
This model works best for my stove with the microwave above it. Quart jars fit when pressure canning but there is not enough height to water bath quart jars but a separate water bath canner can solve that. Practically everything I\'ve canned so far has sealed and I\'m amazed at how easy it is to use.

about Kevins Comment from 10/18/14
You say it can not handle Quart size jars but the above description says it can. Did you mean double stacked or at all. I am always curious when a post claims ability to do something a user contradicts. I have a low hood on my stove and if this truly can not can quart sizes, then its not the model for me.

Great Introductory Model
This is a great model for beginners and those who have limited space. I have had mine for about six years and it has done an excellent job. I have put away 60 pints of goodies ranging from jam/jelly to tomatoes and sauces this year. We are a small family and it meets most of our needs.

The down side is it cannot handle Quart sized jars. I intend to upgrade before next season. When we 1st purchased this model we had just enough clearance from cook top to the bottom of our microwave. This was a limiting factor and was what drove the purchase. Now that we are in a new house this is not a problem.

Hope this is useful.

Cany you use this on an induction cooktop?
Mary E
Does someone have and induction cooktop that they use this pressure cooker with? If not, can someone who has this pressure cooker take a magnet to the bottom and tell me if the magnet takes? If the magnet takes then I will know that it will work on an induction cooktop.

I too am wondering why you don\'t recommend canning fish with this model?

Why isn't it recommended for fish? It holds pint and half-pint jars, processes at required temperature and pressure, so why not? Is it not capable of processing for the 120 minutes required for fish?

Regarding flat-top stoves, always check with the manufacturer first. Most modern flat-top stoves can handle canners. But if you don\'t check and the stove gets damaged, they can void the warranty, if you still have one, even if the canner did not cause the problem.

You can use pots up to 2" larger diameter than the burner.

Love this canner
Lorena Hollis
I used my mom's "antique" All American Canner for years and finally replaced my second canner (not this brand) with another All American Canner from this website. This is by far the best canner on the market. It reaches pressure quickly and, with the rocking regulator, it's easy to keep the pressure steady. I have canned on 3 different "smooth top" stoves in my 40 years of canning. While it isn't recommended, and I would not use a canner larger than the 915 model, I have never had a problem, particularly with the new stoves that heat up quickly. When I'm canning large amounts (of salmon), I use both canners so the weight is spread across the cooking surface. The All American Canner makes the long processing so much easier! I have referred many of my friends to this website for their canner purchases.

ceramic top surface
I am curious about your statement about smooth top stovetops. I do homebrewing in a five gallon ss pot with eight pounds of malt and I have no problems with my stove. It too, is larger than the burner area and have not had any issues with it. I am seriously considering the 15 1/2 qt pressure canner from All American.
