All American Pressure Cooker Trouble - HELP!
    #3215216 - 10/04/04 08:18 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Okay, so a friend just purchased the All American PC model AA-930, which holds 14 quart jars at once. It is beautiful. Although, last night, 8 1/2pint jars (karo tek) were placed into the cooker. The cooker was filled with water about 1/2-3/4 up the height of the jars. The lid was put on, heat applied, 15 psi reached, adjusted temperature to stay stable at 15psi, then cooled down. Now the fucking lid will not come off. When going back and reading the instruction manual he noticed that he forgot to lubricate the metal to metal seal with vaseline. This bolts that screw the lid down will come off, but the lid will not turn so you can lift it off. It will not budge. He doesn't want to go banging on it or do anything that could jeapordize the integrity of the seal. This is a brand new expensive cooker. Anyone have any advice? Thank you.

First off you don't need that much water in the PC 1in. is max I use 3/4-1in. myself. Your problem is common nothing that a sharp rap won't take care of :wink: I've in the past use slight upwards pressure with a non-marring wedge of some sort on one side while giving the opposite side a sharp rap down, It should pop right open.

I just get a screwdriver, put some tape on the end so the metal doesn't scratch it, then just prop it up a bit. Mine for some reason always does this. I've tried leaving the screws loose and it still did it.

Use a wood or plastic wedge. Keep the screwdriver turning screws unless you want a broken seal.
