I love my old Presto
I've had an old style Presto since the 70's. Before that I had my grandmother's old monster-thing I was too afraid to use by myself. If I was going to die, I wanted a witness!
I love my old 'jiggler' pressure canner. I can do other things and listen to what's going on. I don't have to pull up a chair and stare at it for an hour and a half.
I bought an All American, because everyone was. I've never unboxed it. If our civilization goes by the wayside, and gaskets aren't made, and the 2 I have stored give out, THEN I'll sit at the stove and watch a pressure canner maintain pressure.
I've canned everything in my Presto. All sorts of vegetables and fruit, beef, venison, pork, and fish. I've had few jar failures (I think just about every one was my fault), and I haven't killed us, or the chickens,when I threw out the left-overs.
