Some key differences between the brands of pressure canners we sell are:
- All Americans are a much heavier duty unit.
- Presto has a rubber seal in the lid that will need replacing after a few years.
- all American is a metal-to-metal seal – no seal, never needs replacing.
Both are great units for canning, we suggest starting with a presto, and if canning ends up being a long-term thing upgrade to an All American.
