One plus point is, you won’t have to spend extra money on replacing gaskets once they fail you.

The gauge system is made simple to help the cooker understand it without breaking a sweat. It delivers accurate rating than most gauge systems. Therefore, you as a cook will have a clear idea of heat and pressure.

Thinking of using this Pressure Canner/Pressure Cooker at home? Good news is, you can!

I could comfortably carry and use this pressure cooker on numerous occasions. The long-lasting nature of this cooker will allow you to use it regularly without any problem.

You Can Cook Faster with this Pressure Canner

All American 921 21 Quart Canning Pressure Cooker will cook more food efficiently for its large size. The capacity of total 21-quart volume will help you to cook larger items comfortably.

It comes with a larger diameter. So, you can prepare more pints at one time than regular pressure canners. Cooking is a breeze with All American 921 Canning Pressure Cooker due to “Easy to Adjust” pressure valve. This valve allows you to switch between 5, 10 and 15 psi of pressure with just a twist!

Safety features will ensure protection

Some people may argue on the safety features of All American 921. It comes with fewer bells but provides full protection with the metal to metal sealing.

The cooker comes with two backup security systems. If the cooker is under excessive pressure, the safety control valve will act “On its Own” to release the extra vapor and control the overall pressure.

The other safety feature is the over-pressure plug, which also releases the pressure and make things under control. You don’t need to worry about protection; the cooker will provide its full support.

One thing I personally find beneficial is the handle. It is tough and is attached directly to the lid.

So, whenever the pressure canner is in crisis, you can take the lid off to prevent burns or even greater accidents.

FAQ About The Product

I want to store ½ Gallon jars inside this Canner. How many will it hold?

In my experience, the canning pressure cooker will hold 4 of the typical Mason ½ Gallon jars. I did some testing of my own on this.

Is this cooker suitable for electric stoves?

Yes, it is. If you are cooking at an altitude below 1000, feel free to turn the stove’s heat to the max for 10 minutes. After that, you can bring it to a medium setting. It will reach 10 psi of pressure by then and stabilize. For cooking, it will be just fine. But for canning, I wouldn’t recommend this with electric stoves.

How to prevent “Leaking Around the Leaks”?

It is very simple to close out the leaks (if there are any at all). Just apply a bit of olive oil around the corners of the lid. You’ll have to loosen the nuts first. Try to maintain the same gap all round the lid and the pot. Repeat the process a couple, maybe three times and you’ll be good!

Why Should You Buy All American 921 21 Quart Canning Pressure Cooker?

If you have a cramped kitchen, then this pressure cooker might not be a good option. However, you can still use the other sizes of this cooker. Yes, multiple sizes of All American 921 21 Quart Canning Pressure Cooker is available.

The makers really did an excellent job attending even the most tricky issue while coming up with All American 921 Pressure Canner. If you are into “Preserving Foods with Nutrients in them”, you’ll love the “Canning” side of this tool.

With reviewing all the features and options of All American 921 21 Quart Canning Pressure Cooker, it can easily be said that it is one of the best-quality pressure cookers available in the market. I’d happily recommend this to one and all.
