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.
“Had a Mirro pressure canner that I was never happy with, so I decided to purchase the "Cadillac" of canners, the All-American. It's made all the difference. So easy to use and not one failed jar. If you're serious about home canning, this workhorse is the way to go! It's the best.”
– Marcia M., OR
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.
All-American canners aren't for use on induction or glass cooktops. Also please note 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.

By Mary Kay H. in MN on 4/16/2016 - Verified BuyerThe larger canner has been the best investment we made. We can get twice as much done as before and it is a real quality product.29 out of 29 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Andrea P. in IL on 4/12/2016 - Verified BuyerI love the construction of this canner. I have pressure canned using a 10qt pressure cooker/canner and the transistion to this canner wasn't quite as seemless as I'd hoped. You have to pay close attention to keep the pressure steady and even though I'd felt I'd done that, I still lost a few jars to poor seals. That being said, some error may be user caused (I have an electric stove, which makes it much more difficult to control heat) and I am still learning. I would still buy the canner again, and I am pretty persistent in my efforts. This summer, I am going to have a friend who is experienced in pressure canning walk me through her process to see what I can do to improve my success.22 out of 22 people found this review helpful.

By Gary C. in ID on 4/13/2016 - Verified BuyerThe capacity of our pressure canner is a most attractive feature. Instructions are clear and the canner works exactly as described. Great product. A must have for gardeners who like to can their own produce.21 out of 21 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Dawn G. in MO on 4/22/2017 - Verified BuyerThis is the first canner I have had without a seal. I love it. Easy to use. Directions were helpful.14 out of 14 people found this review helpful. Did you?
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.8 out of 8 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Natalie C. in WA on 10/5/2018 - Verified BuyerMy Dad gave my Mom this same All American 30 quart pressure cooker about 30 years ago shortly after they married. It's been an annual friend for our large family! We've cooked huge batches of soup in it, used it to waterbath large half gallon jars of apple cider that won't fit in a regular waterbath canner, and, of course, canned large batches of other foods in it. Since it fits 14 quarts, it makes the process MUCH quicker than using a standard 7 quart would! And since it's tall and narrow, it fits well on our electric stove. My Grandma and Grandpa purchased the next size up that will fit 19 quarts, but the base is so wide that it doesn't fit well on a regular stove. The 30 quart is the way to go!
Pleasant Hill Grain was fantastic too! The price I paid ($350) is almost the same that my Dad paid 30 years ago! It shipped and arrived quickly! And their customer service and communication was top notch! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND PLEASANT HILL GRAIN AND THE 30 QUART PRESSURE COOKER!!!7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Tina M. in CA on 9/9/2017 - Verified BuyerThe American Pressure Canner is the most dependable canner on the market. Well worth the investment and they last forever.7 out of 7 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Thomas S. in IL on 12/8/2018 - Verified BuyerCame with cosmetic damage on lid....hope it works better than it looks?! New lid coming?! Then asked us to package and return lid... no discount or compensation? Was purchased as gift....not the best service?!?Moderator:
PHG provided a prepaid return shipping label for the cosmetically-flawed lid (a problem caused by the manufacturer and unknown to us prior to shipping), and the new lid was delivered to the customer four days after we were told about the problem. We're sorry if this response is considered insufficient.6 out of 6 people found this review helpful. Did you?
By Shane H. in AZ on 10/23/2018 - Verified BuyerI had to wait longer for the pressure caner than originally told. I do appreciate the call and the heads up on the issue. In the end I would suggest a way to let people know that the product is not stocked.Moderator:
Shane, the page has had that info under the Shipping tab for All American Canners, but we've made it more prominent now. For a combination of reasons, it's normal for sellers of All American products to have them drop shipped from the manufacturer's facility. We apololgize for the lack of clarity in the past. Thanks for your review.5 out of 5 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!2 out of 2 people found this review helpful. Did you?
