Heavy Cast Aluminum Pressure Cooker/CannerThis 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

Great pressure canner 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…

If you are considering buying any other canner……… 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 ยข60) that has canning recipes that I have not been able to find anywhere else. Buy this and pass it on to your grandchildren!!!

Excellent pressure Canner, pretty good pressure cooker 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.
