All American Pressure Cooker and Canner, Made in the USA
I have a pretty big garden for a small neighborhood property. While I’ve owned water bath canners for decades, in 2019 I decided I wanted to start pressure canning. The All American Pressure Canner & Cooker was on my list of items to budget for. The plan was to purchase it in mid-summer 2020 just before the harvest started coming in.
Well, you know what happened early in 2020. I told Don we needed to discuss getting the All American Pressure Canner sooner than planned. (We always discuss big purchases together.) I reminded him of the cost and the plan to get it a few months later. I explained that I had a bad feeling about being able to get the canner if we waited. Don agreed and I ordered the 925 All American Pressure Canner immediately.
I’m so thankful we decided to get it early. The world was crazy and weird and scary. More people were at home taking up new hobbies including canning. Many were frightened and planned to start canning and preserving in fear of a serious food shortage.
With that came American factory shutdowns. Demand was up and production was down. The combination created a shortage of All American canners and increased prices.
I was fortunate to receive my canner within a week and started using it right away.
The first food I canned was chicken soup and the second was pot roast. I was making both for dinner that week so I simply purchased and prepared extra so I would have plenty to put up for later.
I truly love my All American Canner. My only regret is that I didn’t go up one size and purchase the 930 model. I really enjoy using it so canning twice as much would be even better. I may eventually get the 930 and call it a collection. Don might not be so agreeable when I bring up that idea. Haha.
About the All American Pressure Canner and Cooker
The All American Pressure Canner and Cooker is the ONLY home-use pressure canner made in the USA (Unless you have a secret that I don’t.) It is also the top of the line pressure canner. The canners are manufactured at the Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry where they have produced castings since 1909.
The All American Pressure Canner is the only canner to feature a metal-to-metal seal that eliminates the need for gaskets that have to be replaced and makes the canner easy to open and close. Clamping wing nut locks align the lid to the base and form a steam-tight seal. The All American Pressure Canner also has an automatic overpressure release to ensure the safest pressure canning. The 921, 925, 930, and 941 have included stackable racks. In addition, all models feature a precision pressure regulator weight for canning at 5, 10, or 15 pounds. That’s not all though. It also has an easy-to-read steam gauge for accurate pressure control. Every model comes with a warranty too.
Replacement parts from screws and handles to gauges and vent pipes are available to keep your All American Canner in top shape for a lifetime (and probably your child’s lifetime too.) I have a few canning friends that have their mother’s All American Canner and one friend who has her grandmother’s, mother’s, and her own new model. Pretty neat!

Using the All American Canner & Cooker
The All American canner comes with excellent step-by-step instructions that are also available online. The online instructions are in PDF format at Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry’s All American Brand Website.
I was pretty nervous the first time I used it. Now in addition to making sure my head space was perfect and taking great care not to give my family botulism, I was worried about an old fashion pressure canning explosion. Fortunately, I read my included booklet carefully and took mental note of the All American Canners automatic over-pressure release.
Time for some happy canning. Pressure canning isn’t a fast process. But it is the ONLY way to SAFELY can meat, fish, and poultry and it’s the only method the USDA recommends for low-acid foods. The whole family was excited so we brought a game of monopoly into the kitchen and set up to keep an eye and ear on the regulator weight.
The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I could do it without them today but I still check them every time I process jars to be extra safe.
Getting going was really simple and I was surprised by how quickly we were enjoying a game of monopoly. Nowadays, I’m confident leaving the kitchen as long as I’m within earshot of the familiar jingle of the weighted regulator. I can’t believe I was afraid to pressure can for so many years. Oh, the food I could have put up! We’ll call those the lost years.
As an owner, I believe the All American Pressure Canner is worth every penny and that’s why I made it the first American Made Product Spotlight.
