The cover of your pressure cooker/canner is designed to seal tightly without the use of a rubbert gasket. The metal surfaces where the cover and cooker meet are beveled to produce the exclusive metal-to-metal seal. As a result, the cover will wobble slightly when placed on the bottom before the wing nuts are fully fastened. When the cover is properly sealed, there is a small gap between the cooker/canner and the cover. To secure the cover, gradually and evenly tighten two opposite wing nuts at the same time, maintaining the same size gap around the entire unit where the cover meets the bottom. Never tighten just one wing nut at a time. A new cooker will sometimes leak slightly around the metal-to-metal seal. This will do no harm, and should cease after being used a few times.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
This is a wonderful canner! You can use it for 7 quart jars if pressure canning or 19 pint jars,10 on bottom, 9 on top.
For water bath canner, you can also use up to 7 quart jars and 19 pint jars. This unit includes two racks for stacking the pint jars.
The manual is very thorough. Do not forget to grease this canner with olive oil or vaseline since there is no gasket. It is wonderful to not have to replace a gasket ever. The manual recommends not using this canner on a smooth top stove. I have seen people do it without any issues, but the manufacturer recommends that you do not.

As a first-time pressure canner, I researched a long time before investing in this product. Studied the reviews and how-to's and youtube videos in depth. This is such a quality product and was much easier to use than I originally thought it would be. Will be using it for years to come, but in my old age, might have to get someone to pull it out and put it on the stove when canning - it is very heavy. Was very important to me that it is made in the USA.
Was worried that it might not fit on my stove because I have a microwave mounted over my stove. However, it fits on the front burners easily, and I still can lift the lid away from me when opening after the appropriate time has passed when canner is finished.
Wish I could have purchased the 16 qt canner, but it was gone by the time I decided to purchase. However, the 21.5 qt is great because you can stack the pint jars and fit more into the canner at one time, getting more done at a time. Would definitely make this purchase again if I had it to do all over! Thanks, Overstock, for making this a reality for me!

I have canned for a straight 2 weeks now. I may have to attend a meeting. We are enjoying the rewards of this wonderful canner. I have reduced sodium as it is not essential for preserving food in this type of situation. I have also caused it to turn BLACK! Yikes, I forgot to add the vinegar (my water is very hard). I found a cure online using Cream of Tartar. Perfect again. So use your vinegar people!

We ordered this on Friday and by Thursday the next week we had it in hand. Once we got it home we started checking it out. Noticed that around the rim of the pot there was a lot of mistooling that was done to cut it away from the slag. The we noticed a small indentation on the lid. Could not find anything about this in the manual and was hard to figure out if it was supposed to be there or not. We decided to send this one back. Returning it was straight forward and with the RMA number there was a prepaid shipping lable. They even went ahead and shipped the replacement before receiving the old one. After getting the new one in hand it became readily apparent what the marking in the top was. It was an arrow to line up the lid with the indentation on the bottom. So in the end it was bad pot out of the factory. All in all it's a great product they just need to do a better job of.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It was pretty much the same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Second one shipped was better than the first.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty much spot on.
I grew up with my mom canning every year. So when it came to buying my own canner, I wanted something that lasted my lifetime and could hand down to my daughters. This is the best one around. Yes, it is an investment, but it is the only canner you will ever need. I got the 21.5 quart canner and it just fits on my stove with the vent/microwave overhead. More than enough for the average canner. Just made a double batch of soup, and canned half. And Overstock.com had the best deal! This is heavy and shipping is pricey, but not with Overstock.com.
All-American pressure canners got some pretty high recommendations to me and this beast seems to have lived up to the hype. I like that there is no gasket to replace, the combination pressure gauge and jigglier is fantastic and the fact that it can hold quite few jars with room left over is a big plus too. Everything arrived in pristine condition including the box it was shipped in.
My first journey into pressure canning and cooking. This thing is unbelievable! My dad calls it my nuclear reactor:). I only tend to buy the best kitchen equipment i can afford, so I have many nice pieces of cookware etc. This is right up there at the top with the others. It performs as it should, is heavy and well built with clear instructions on use. I have already used it to pressure cook veggie soup and then can the leftovers and I've only had it 4 days! It cooked the soup so much faster than a regular pot could have. That is important in the summer in central Florida. I had to call manufacturer with a question and a live person answered the phone. They were very helpful and seem proud of their product, rightfully so.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent build. Should last forever.....
The canner is awesome. It DOES work on a glass top range just fine. Overstock's packaging is HORRIBLE. It seems they just took it off the shelf and slapped a postage sticker on it. They ended up sending me two because the first one was actually dented from apparently being dropped. Overstock blamed UPS, made them take the financial hit, and quickly sent another one. The second one arrived with beat up packaging but the canner seemed fine and worked as it should. I canned lots of delicious hormone free Zaycon chicken. YUM! I pleaded with them to package the second one better but they did not do this. We all know the delivery people manhandle our packages. It's up to the seller to protect the product from this situation. Overstock did not do this at all.
