The All American 921 is from a line of pressure canners that offer the safest method for home canning. The U.S.D.A. recommends pressure canning as 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. Only All American Pressure Canners feature an exclusive, precision machined "Metal-to-Metal" sealing system. Positive action clamping locks align the cover to the base forming a steam tight seal. Because no gasket is involved, the cover is always easily opened and closed.

  • Professional quality, extra heavy duty cast aluminum construction throughout for fast & even heating
  • Stay-cool bakelite top handle
  • Geared steam gauge

Response to Julie
Did you use both wide mouth and narrow mouth jars?
I would think this would make a difference

Can you really fit 19 pint jars in the 921?
We just canned 17 pint jars and cannot figure out how the other 2 would have fit. We had 9 on the bottom, 8 on the top. Any thoughts out there?

Easy to use, built like a tank - will be here long after you and I are at the pearly gates.

If you are debating, "should I or should I not" - the answer is clear. BUY IT. Do yourself a favor.

And as always, read the directions BEFORE you use it.

Big Question
I just started using my 921 canner. It is wonderful and works perfect, but I did something wrong, I ran out of pint jars, so for the last two batches I used quart jars, but still canned at the 55 minute time (10 lb weight) that I used for the pints. I was just canning sweet corn off the cob. The jars sealed fine, but as I said I screwed up the time. I was doing two rows of 9 jars for the pints, but only 7 quarts. I would think that since there was a lot more corn in the pints, that the quarts would be safe. As I said they sealed Ok. Should I throw them out or what. Thanks for any help.

On other canners I cover the jars completely. Do I need to cover completely with water in this?

So where do I get instructions for my 921 pressure canner? My mom gave me hers but I have never used a pressure canner before. Help?

I have one of the older 921 models and it has the pet cock not a weight. I have forgotten how to use it do you leave the petcock open until it reaches the temp and then close it.

Will the 921 hold the half gallon jars? If so how many? Looking to get this model and want to use the larger jars.

reply to Claire

The current All-American canners come from the factory with both the dial gauge and weighted gauge. The older models used to have a pet cock that can be replaced with a stem and weighted gauge. Just ignore the dial gauge and stick to using the weighted gauge for determining your pressure amount. Other types of canners can be converted to the All-American configuration.
Best of Luck,

Question on Weighted Gauges
I am going to purchase the 930 30 model canner
Cindy where do you find the weighted gauges for the pressure canners? How do you replace the dial with the weighted guage??? Do you have a choice when you buy the canner?
