I don’t have all the canners here with me, and the ones I do have all seem to need something.
The large All American, which I can only use outside on the Camp Chef stove, needed an extra rack for canning two layers of jars. I only had one rack so I had to use the smaller rack out of the Presto canner I have here. Since I did the canning outside in Texas, those racks would get dropped and bent and sometimes, bent to the point that they weren’t flat and couldn’t be used so I ordered a couple of new racks.
I have three All American canners here and one pressure regulator. I kept the regulators in a drawer in the kitchen and . . who knows when I’ll see those again so I ordered a couple of those.
We bought a very old but probably never used All American 910 off Craig’s List in 2014. It had the old petcock assembly instead of a tube and regulator. I think we ordered the parts to change it out but that never happened and some day we’ll find them but I went ahead and ordered new parts so Vince can change that out. That little canner is perfect when I only need to can a few jars at a time. I’ve still used it even with the old assembly but it makes me a bit nervous using it.
When I started to use the large Pesto canner, I noticed the gauge was cracked so that one can’t be used til I get a new gauge and the gauges are backordered everywhere.
Soon, I’ll have everything I need to can a lot of stuff at one time . . except I won’t have anything to can! 🙂
