Hi y'all! Our old pressure cooker is in need of replacement, and we'd like to get one to use for canning as well. Any recommendations? I won't say money is no object, but we are up for quality and a Christmas ask. Thanks!

I use and recomend "All American" canners. there is no rubber gaskets to fail and they are extremely durable. You can buy parts for them if needed from the manufacturer. They come in all different sizes. I would recomend buying one large enough to double stack pint jars at the very least. If you're gonna take the time to can you may as well have the abaility to can a "lot" at the same time!

Thank you Anne for posting this. I'm expanding my canning abilities this year, I've only done water bath and I'ld like to be able to do my beans and peas as well this year so pressure cooker is the next step and I'm just a little overwhelmed by them. Thanks for the insight Pat on the All American, I'll have to check them out!
