I went to the salvation army store the other day and saw at least four or five old school pressure cookers there. The most expensive being $15.

Okay, after using a basic sterilization, and doing 7 pint jars and yielding well and having the time of my life with my friends, I decided to get a real presssure cooker, So I bought the 15.5 quart All-american. I'm really excited, just thought I would tell you all. I am going to try some birdseed and popcorn, and then perhaps try my hand at some grain 2 grain and cloning methods. I am super excited. If anyone has an all american, please remind me that they are worth the money!!!

Take care of it and your grandkids will be cooking for their grandkids in it. They don't wear out.

Basic rules:

#1 PAY ATTENTION! Keep one or better yet both eyes on it while cooking.
#2 never let it run dry
#3 never doze off while PCing,

It will last forever if you do these. :)

I agree with RR.

I bought an old one off ebay and it works just like new. I love it so much more than dealing with the crappy mirro. They really are well worth the money! I'm hoping I win the raffle for June so I can get a new one as mine is really pitted and starting to spit at the seal when I get it up to 15 psi. Vaseline on the rim has seemed to stop it for the time being. Plus mine doesn't have the rack or instructions so you made a great purchase Cheesball!

Yeah, I finally broke down and got a 921 allmost a year ago. It's a tool that will last a lifetime, and I've used mine many a times to cook in. My old roommate use to say I could never get a pot big enough for the week long meals I'd make, but I proved him wrong.

Grains can be conquored, well, fairly well with a glove box. Of course, the more tools you have to work with, the more you dream about the really good shit; a flow hood crafted to suit your needs, spawn bags, agar materials, and an impulse sealer, etc.

if you are going to take the time to make a glovebox, you should spend a little more and make a flowhood. my glovebox has worked very well but there's nothin like the freedom of movement you get working in front of the flowhood. i was thinking about making a combination flowhood/glovebox to be really really clean.

Hehe, I like my Mirro a lot. It says 22qt but it will hold 28 half pints or 7 quarts with 7 pints on top. In fact, it just finished 90 minutes at 15psi with 24 half pints in it and the rest of the space taken up with water filled syringes for re-use. :) Have fun Cheezeball...PCs are a wonderful tool.

Decided i would buy myself a pressure cooker, as i will be continuing ths hobby for some time to come. Should i go with the presto pressure canner 23 quart or the all american pressure canner 21 quart?

and pros on cons on either model? the presto is quite a bit cheaper..

The all american 921 will sterilize 10 quart jars of grain at once and last a lifetime due to very heavy duty construction. Made in USA.
