Everyone says All American usually, but I got a Fagor for like $50 from the mall that holds three quarts at a time. I like it.

I bought my All American 7 quart(the smallest they make, I believe) for 23$(shipped) used on eBay, complete with rack and vintage instruction booklet.

It can hold eight 1/2 pint jars and four pint jars.. probably three quart jars.

Of course i'm going to get an 18 gallon or more.. I am talking about quality and performance as more of an issue here. That and price, I don't wanna spend $150

18 quart pc can do 7 quart jars at once. Saves me lots of time. I wanna try some half gallon jars, maybe even gallon if I can find em around here.

I have a Presto from Walmart that I got for 40 dollars on sale. Not sure on exact capacity but I know that I can fit 20 half pints comfortably. Never leaks and works very well, cant complain.

Can I ask a dumb question here?

Why the need for a huge PC?

I mean you only need 1 jar of spawn to innoculate 10 X's that amount of bulk substrate(example=1 quart of spawn = 10 quarts of bulk,thats a whopping 2 1/2 gallons of bulk substrate from one spawn jar).

My small PC only holds 3 quarts at a time and that gives me=7 1/2 gallons of bulk substrate,lol-thats an awfull lot of substrate to try and use up-IMO-If you were making a truck bed into a casing then you may need all of that,lol,but, for the small closet grower and novice hobbiest you don't need that much at all.

This is just my opinion.

I have been using this same pc for over a year now and I can't get rid or eat all of the mushrooms(pleurotus ostreatus var. columbinus of course :wink:) that it has helped produce.

Just wondering about the need for the huge PC!

:cool: :thumbup:

I think the All American 921 is so perfectly matched in size to the average home cultivator, you can't make it any better. It's a little expensive, but you an get them used on Ebay for a resonable price. It holds seven quart jars or a big pile of half-pints.

Here is mine next to a big lobster steamer I used to use in my pre-PC days. Click to enlarge :mushroom2:
