All American 921 Pressure Cooker and Canner
For many, this stove top pressure cooker will bring back memories of Grandma in the kitchen, but if you are into canning and pressure cooking, nothing is better than the All American 921 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner. This same design has been in production since the 1930's, and it has proven its worth countless times in kitchens across the country.
The All American is made out of thick aluminum, and it comes with six sealing nuts for maximum sealing capability with no gasket needed. It comes with a pressure regulator weight over the valve, which will automatically release at 5, 10, or 15 pounds of pressure, depending on how you set it. By manually removing the weight, you will release all of the pressure inside. There's also a large easy-to-read pressure gauge sitting on top; it's an old school feature to be sure, but nevertheless remains highly effective.
This unit's 21 quart capacity allows you to make pressure cooked meals for any family or family gathering, and it also allows you to can fruits and vegetables with the best of them. Although it is the most expensive unit on the list, don't let the one year warranty fool you. Many users report their unit is still cooking flawlessly after decades of heavy-duty use. For canning and cooking all-in-one, you can't do better than the All American Pressure cooker.
