It works Great.
I don't have both the Presto and the All American so this is not a perfect comparison. The thing that finally sold me on the Presto rather than the All American (other than price, as I am willing to pay for quality) is the heat up and cool down times. I have read that it takes quite a time for the All American to heat and cool.
This makes sense because it is made with such thick metal. If you are trying to can more than one batch in a day and only have one canner, a canner that heats and cools quicker might make a difference. It might also use less energy.
Like I said before though, I don't have both and cannot attest to the fact that one is faster than the other, but that is why I chose the Presto. =)
