Just Got Me An All-American
    #4193157 - 05/19/05 12:06 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Just won an ebay auction for an All-American Pressure Cooker for $89 total shipped. Model 910. Supposedly it is in like new condition, but made in 1995 and these some-b's last a long time from what I have heard:





It holds 4 quart jars so that should be good enough, ya think?

Hope so. My only problem is that I will be using it on a portable burner which is only like 6 inches diameter, and I believe these All-American's are wider that that. Need to find a bigger burner or hotplate.

that 6 inch diameter thing shouldn't be a problem, it will still heat the bottom of the cooker and distribute the heat (remember, metal is a conductor so the heat will spread to all parts of the cooker and will still be VERY hot on any part of the bottom of the cooker).

how many quart jars fit in that baby? good buy for $89!!

remember to lubricate your seal before each use.
the lip is beveled and you want to begin at the bottom of the angled edge

4 Quart jars TODAY. So I should lubricate the seals? All-American's close with a metal to metal seal I am told so should I lube the metal?

yes; on the inside of the "pan" part of the pc.
the lip is angled, and where the angle ceases, is where you apply the vaseline.

Thanks, didn't know I had to lube my All-American. Anything else I should know? I think I will name her Big Bessie.

Get a bar of paraffin wax from the canning section of most stores.

Just rub the bar around the inner edge of the AA lip. That serves to lube the bevel metal to metal seal joint.

It isn't always needed, but using it, they are not hard to open. Without it, they can be (sometimes).

I have an old AA 910 and a new AA 930.

you will love it!~
the 910 is a great little unit to get started with.

holds 4 quarts.
holds 10 wide mouth 1/2 pint jars.

I use my bigger one these days...but still use the 910 for doing small stuff.
like making up jars of agar, sterilizing used syringes, my tools, water..etc.

If those are auction pics, make sure he sends the 5/10/15 weighted rocker that fits over the steam nozzle, just to the right of the handle. I never lube mine, but forgot that I needed to, which would explain why my lid is sometimes hard to get off.




Hmmm he never mentioned anything about that. I know my little Mirro has one of those. I will ask him about it before he ships it. If he doesn't there is a store around the corner from me that sells replacement parts :smile:

Roadkill, I'm sure I will love it too!

By the way, in case he doesn't send it and to save money, does anyone have a spare pressure regulator to trade or sell?

Yeah I have been looking at spare parts online, not too pricey. Should I tell this guy to remove the pressure guage before he ships it? Looks like It could get damaged?

good score but you are going to wish you got a bigger one. Mine holds 7 qaurts or 4 1/2 gallons, or like 24 pints. The next size up form mine holds 12-14 quarts.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

It's better than what I have now, which is a noobie 6-quart Mirro, which only holds 3 half or regular pinters!! Those PC's can get pretty damn expensive, but I'm sure eventually I will upgrade....
