IMPORTANT: COVID-19 UPDATE
Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 11. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!
"Above all, we’re very pleased with your courteous and honest service to us. I’m such a critic that when I praise something, it merits high praise indeed. I wouldn't bother to write this if I was not so favorably impressed."

All-American Pressure Canner
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. 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.
“I searched high and low and found a high pressure canner with no seal. The construction is top notch, directions book and info is superb. I would recommend this product and company to anyone wanting to can.”
– Christine B., PA
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, and there are no painted surfaces to crack, chip, or discolor from heat.
Easy to use: 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 Pressure Canner Features
Safety by design: Every All-American canner incorporates a large neoprene plug that safely prevents overpressuring.
All models come with an easy-to-read, 8.5" x 11" recipe and instruction book.
That 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 those foods because foaming and frothing action could cause clogging.
For pressure cooking the amount of liquid each cooker holds varies with the model. Model 910 holds 10.5 quarts, model 915 holds 15.5 quarts, model 921 holds 21.5 quarts, model 925 holds 25 quarts, model 930 holds 30 quarts, and model 941 holds 41.5 quarts of liquid. See the tables below for more specifications.
Please note: All-American pressure canners are warranted and sold exclusively for home use.
All-American canners can not be used on induction or glass cooktops.

By Sharon T. in CA on 10/9/2017 - Verified BuyerI purchased my first pressure canner in the 1970s, a Presto. Lasted for years and was a great canner, gave it to my sister when I moved out of state. I purchased another pressure canner, used it five times only, unfortunately had it for over a year. The handle broke and a hole had developed in it so it wouldn't build up steam. Truth be told, it seemed very light weight, I should have been more skeptical whenI got it. Now I have the All American 915! This has some weight to it, I am so in love with it. I purchased the smaller size because frankly I don't think I will be canning as much as I used to. The size is perfect for me. I know this is a canner that will get handed down in the family when I no longer can use it.33 out of 33 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Annette P. in VA on 7/30/2019 - Verified BuyerI’ve always wanted this canner because of great reviews and it is made in the USA. Was easy to use. Directions are very good. Very well made. Wish I had bought it sooner. Canning tomatoes is now a breeze.18 out of 18 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By RaisingCropsandBabies on 7/28/2018 - Verified BuyerAfter using my Grandpa's old pressure canner for 7 years, it finally bit the dust... mid-canning season. I love PHG's service and always order my big stuff from them, so I knew right where to turn to to find a suitable replacement, and boy did I ever find a replacement that was beyond suitable! Trying to can enough to feed 10 people is no small canner's job, so I bought the stacking All American so I could double my time's effort. I'm so pleased with it!!! Easy to use once you read the manual and the dial is neat to and helps me keep on track for when I can take jars out and add more jars in (vs. waiting, forgetting, getting side-tracked, coming back to it). From now on, I'm an All American Canner canner!14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Jack D in IN on 4/24/2019 - Verified BuyerExcellent machining and heavy duty design, can't wait to be able to can more than a couple quarts at a time!!!9 out of 9 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Katie H. in MA on 8/31/2020 - Verified BuyerThe canner I bought was back-ordered from the manufacturer... every source I checked gave no idea of when they would be able to ship... almost all of them were jacking up the prices... 1 seller on Amazon wanted $900.00 for it... Pleasant Hill charged me $299.00... free shipping... and they delivered a full week before their original promised date. Everybody who wants a canner should order it from PHG!6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?

By Sean C. in CA on 1/20/2018 - Verified BuyerI have had several sizes of this canner over the years and have enjoyed them all. I have also had many pressure cookers and this one is so simple to use. The manufacturer will speak to you about concerns if there ever is one.4 out of 4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Josh W. in MO on 12/30/2019 - Verified BuyerOver the years I've owned many different canners, always looking for one that would hold up and be easy to use. I shied away from the American since they were pricey. As my canning increased, I realized I better go ahead and spend the money and get a 930. Now I'm mad at myself for not going with the All-American from the start. These canners are hands down the best on the market! They will last a lifetime. I now own a 930 and a 910 for smaller runs. Thank you ALL-AMERICAN!3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Patricia H. in MA on 4/1/2019 - Verified BuyerI am very satisfied with your delivery and product. This size canner is the perfect size for me to lift off the stove as I have had to downsize from using a larger one after so many years. I have never had a problem with these canners and they are extremely well made.3 out of 3 people found this review helpful. Did you?
