Pressure Cooker Go BOOM?
    #912972 - 09/27/02 07:42 PM (19 years, 2 months ago)

Alright, so my buddy got his pressure cooker in the mail, Its an OLD 921 AA. On the top its got the pressure gauge and I assume a weight, that can be screwed up or down. I assume this acts as a pressure release? So he wants to do a test run but is a little timid, for he's never worked with them before, and has heard they can be quite mean. Anybody got and precautions my buddy should make on this endevour into the unknown?

Try to hunt down the manufacturer for directions on using the pc first. Read those and it shouldn't go boom unless it doesn't have a way to release the pressure??

funny, i just bought a 16q "Maid Of Honor" today at goodwill for $13. holds seven quarts, and has the little screw thing for the pressure release. Doing the first test run today it took a long time for the pressure to get up. i had the screw all the way in. then i heard it start to boil and the pressure started to rise. i came back 5 minutes later with the guage reading 18psi so i unscrewed it a bit and let the pressure slowly drop to 15. then i tightened it a little to keep the pressure at 15. it went up and then i would unscrew it, let it drop slowly, then tighten it a little. its hard to get a good setting that keeps it at 15 psi. but for the last 20 minutes i had it at 15 psi without having to adjust it. all it takes is a little practice. You shold watch it and make sure you get the hang of it.

Right on, good find. Well I went to google and searched for "All American pressure cookers instructions", and so far I aint found shit. If anyone knows the All American website address that would be a great help. Thanks again.

Make sure you check the gasket for wear or rotting. Also make sure the vent tube is not clogged at all and that nothing is loose. It would be wise to get a hold of a manual for that particular model though.

if the PC goes boom you can be shredded by flying snarpal. mine has 3 pressure release points, the normal route which is the top weight, the emergency top cap and the emergency side rubber

snarpels are flying projectiles, usually metal fragments propelled at high speed by an explosion, like a bomb, mine, or in this case, by intense internal pressure

Alright, I don't want to play mod and make mickey feel left out, but enough with the crap. Just play nice, so what LSAuser mispelled, we're not all perfect. Ok so now for the plan of the test run. I'm gonna fill about 2 inches of water in my PC and let it boil with the lid off. I'm going to open the pressure valve completely, and put the lid on, I assume there should be a steady stream of vapor exiting my steam release. Then I intend to close off the pressure valve, slowly, thus increasing the pressure. Does anyone see any harm in this? Please help so I don't loose my head.

Your AA 921 must be a very old one. Even so, there should be a pressure gauge, a steam relief valve & some sort of safety - steam release pop/off thing -- all on the lid.

I have never seem an AA that had "weights" to adjust pressure. The steam relief valve is designed so that you can relieve pressure, if it builds -- to high. The pop/off is designed to release or blow out, it you allow the pressure to go to high.

It has a pressure gauge -- right. So long as you don't exceed 20 pounds pressure. Everything should be fine. Once you exceed that the pressure relkief valve should start to vent. If you exceed that DRAMATICLY, the pop/off should blow out -- or vent -- also.

It might help to post a jpg of the lid, so a person could see what your talking about.

Whatever the case, so long ass it is structurly sound, it should be safe. Put 1 inch of water in it. Put the lid on & tigten, put some heat to it & see if it builds pressure? See if the relief valve works & will vent stream -- when you move the toggle -- on it.

If it builds pressure to 15 + pounds ? If you can relieve that pressure -- when you want -- your good to go. It takes a little while to test & learn what heat settings are required to maintain 15 pounds. You just have to tinker & practice.

DO NOT EVER LEAVE ONE--  ON -- UNATTENDED. Unless you know what your doing & have it set with a GOOD timer-- to turn OFF -- when you want.

Just tinker with it. It only becomes dangerious -- if you exceed presure limits. Even then, the safety features should relieve it and/or pop/off. You don't want to get hit with that -- though.

6T :tongue:

Skikid16, does it look anything like this?



this is the weight i have. the screw is fully tight till i get to 15 psi, then i turn the flame down to low and loosen the screw a little bit till it stays at 15psi. it will slowly rise or fall. then i just tighten or loosen it till it get's to 15.

Well there is basically 2 styles of All American pressure cookers.

This kind has the pressure relief valve.




This kind has the weight on top....instead of the pressure relief valve




If you have the one with the pressure relief valve this is what you do.
You hopefully have a divot....the metal thing that holds the jars off the bottom of the pressure cooker.....if you don?t have a divot.....order one.
Use a towel for the bottom for now if you don?t have a divot.
fill the pressure cooker with 1" to 1 1/2" of water.
put your jars in.
Put the lid on carefully.....make sure you tighten the fasteners down crossways for even tightening.
Turn your stove on to 3/4 let the water get hot.
When the water has gotten hot flip the valve on the top to the closed position.
The pressure will start to build up in the cooker......watch the gauge.
When you get up to 15 psi.....turn the stove down to 1/4.
If the gauge starts to show it climbing up past 15 psi......vent some steam off using the pressure relief valve til it falls back to 15 psi.
Some stoves are different than others.....get to know what position to have your knobs on to keep your pressure cooker at 15 psi.
You might have to play around with the knobs til you find the right position.
After you have the pressure cooker at 15 psi start counting the time for your jars.

Keep an eye on the pressure cooker while you are using it.....never leave it un-attended.

After you have pressure cooked your jars for the amount of time that you wanted pull your pressure cooker off the hot burner and put it on another cold burner to cool down.
Take a clean hand towel and spay some Lysol on the towel......put the towel on top of the Vent valve.
Let the pressure cooker cool down.....don?t open the pressure cooker til the guage says that there is no pressure left inside the cooker.
Wait about an hour.....at least I do.
Then try the pressure relief valve......to make sure there isn?t any pressure left inside the pressure cooker.
take out your jars....your set.

good luck!

See, I think mine is like WAY old cause it looks like neither of these. It has a pressure release valve, but the weight looks like a thimbail. You can screw it tight (increase pressure) loose (decrease pressure). Thats why I think this thing is like prehistoric. But i did my crash test, and after three tries (first two I didn't screw it on properly cause I didn't criss-cross) I reached and mantained 15 psi. Wooohooo, screw you PF, birdseed here I come!!!!!!!

mine has one of those jiggly little weights that go on the top. i find it to be very effective, sexy, and sleek at the same time, especially for being older than i.
