All-American 921 Pressure Canner, Colors

The 921 All-American Canner is now available in six beautiful colors!

The 921 (21.5 qt) canner on this page is identical to the original 921 All-American canner, except that it has a coated aluminum finish instead of a satin aluminum finish. The new color finish is a proprietary, premium cookware-grade coating that's specially cured for durability.

The 921 model is the only model that's currently available in colors.

Simply the best pressure canner

At Pleasant Hill Grain we're convinced that the All-American line of pressure canners/cookers is the world's finest, and by a wide margin. Made by the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry since 1930, All-American canners are built with outstanding quality and features, and offer the busy cook many time and money saving advantages!

Home canning is a very popular way to preserve large or small quantities of quality food at home. The USDA recommends pressure canning to can meat, fish*, poultry and vegetables, and it's the only method that USDA recommends for preserving low-acid foods. Available in a wide range of sizes, All-American canners quickly and easily make lower-priced cuts of meat tender. Many nutrients and vitamins are saved when food is cooked in a pressure cooker, saving valuable nutrition that goes down the drain with other cooking methods.

One of the things we like best about All-American pressure canners/cookers is the exclusive, precision machined metal-to-metal lid sealing system that achieves a perfect seal without using a gasket. Positive-action clamping locks align the cover to the base, forming a steam-tight seal. Because no gasket is used, the cover is always easy to open and close. With other pressure canner designs the gasket is susceptible to cuts, burns, cracks and age hardening—any of which would bring your food canning operation to a halt. The gasket-free design eliminates those risks. 

  • “Thanks for being one of the good guys in a sea of questionable vendors. I am recommending you to anyone I find who is looking for anything that I have seen on your site.”

    – Carla M.

All-American pressure canners are made of thick cast aluminum, which is much stronger than the stamped-metal construction of most canners on the market. They're built to provide a lifetime of trouble-free service.


To make things simpler you might be tempted to pressure-can all types of food, but that would be a mistake. Results are much better for jams, jellies, marmalades, fruit butter, fruit syrup, sauerkraut and pickled foods in a water bath, rather than under pressure. If these kinds of acidic foods are subjected to high heat, their color, flavor and texture will suffer. The good news is, pressure canners may also be used for the water bath method (by not pressurizing), so you’ll kill two birds with one stone by purchasing a pressure canner. 

Easy to use

To pressure can, jars are filled with alkaline foods—such as carrots, squash, green beans, okra, corn, etc., or any meat—then placed in the pressure vessel with a few inches of water. Unlike the water bath method, the jars of food inside a pressure canner aren’t submerged in water; the canner’s directions and your recipe will tell you how much water is required to achieve the right pressure. 

All-American canners are "weighted-gauge" canners. The provided pressure regulator weight can be installed on the canner's vent pipe in any of three positions marked for 5, 10 or 15 pounds of pressure. When pressure reaches the chosen level, the regulator weight makes a noticeable and distinctive sound. Stove heat is then adjusted so the regulator weight jiggles between one and four times per minute. Cooking time is counted from the first jiggle. It's that simple! With a little experience you'll learn what position to put your stove's burner at for the type of job you're doing, and the needle-type pressure gauge provides another handy pressure indication.

All-American Canner Specs

For pressure cooking, the amount of liquid each cooker holds varies with the model. Model 921 holds 21.5 quarts, which is large enough to handle 19 pint jars (double stacked) or 7 quart jars. The original satin aluminum canners are available in a 21.5 quart size as well as: model 910 which holds 7 pint jars or 4 quart jars and model 915 which holds 10 pint jars or 7 quart jars. Model 925 holds the same number of jars as the 921 but holds more liquid. Model 930 holds up to 19 pint jars or up to 14 quart jars, and modle 941 holds up to 32 pint jars or up to 19 quart jars.


The 921 All-American canners may safely be used on glass cooktops.

The canners can be used on either gas or electric stovetops.

None of the All-American canners can be used on induction stovetops.

*Important Usage Notes

While many pressure cooker owners use their cookers for beans, lentils and rice (following particular practices for those foods), the manufacturer of the All-American Canner recommends against using the canner for these foods because foaming and frothing action could cause clogging of the canner.


All-American pressure canners are warranted and sold exclusively for home use. The All-American canners have a 1 year warranty.
