All American 907 Pressure Canner

Figured I'd ask here first though if I need to know anything. Also, haven't checked if it's weight or dial, but will convert it to weight of course if need be.

There's no way, with the way the All American's bolt down, that it would ever explode lol.
That size canner is perfect for canning up the last of the leftovers...that's what I use it for. I also use it when I'm creating new recipes and only making small batches to see how they turn out.
But yeah, it would be a piece of cake to convert over to a weighted gauge.
I'm calling your mama and telling her the truth.
"One day, we’re going to stand before the gates of Heaven. Some of us want to be able to walk up there in a white robe and we want to sing Abba Father and Amazing Grace and we want to say to the Lord, “I worshiped You.” But I want you to think about this: Heres the way I want to enter the gates of Heaven. I want to come skidding in there on all fours. I want to be slipping and sliding and I want to hit the gates of heaven with a bang. And when I stand up and I stand before Christ, I want there to be blood on my knees and my elbows. I want to be covered with mud. And I want to be standing there with a ragged breast plate of righteousness. And a spear in my hand. And I want to say, “Look at me, Jesus. I’ve been in the battle. I’ve been fighting for you.” Ladies and gentlemen, put your armor on and get into battle. God bless you." ~ General William G. Boykin, U.S. Army (ret.)

Still, a fun thing to have.

I did that with my old #7 15 1/2 quart one. I happened to have the book that came with it and they told me the year it was manufactured because of the numbers written on it. Mine was in the forties and they told me with a new guage it was perfectly safe to use. I got it at an auction for a dollar and have used it several years now. Works perfectly. I like it much better for holding the pressure than I do my other three canners. Those canners were made to LAST. I don't think I got the guage from the company though. I believe I might have gotten it from Goodmans ( www.goodmans.net )when I bought new rubber gaskets, guages, and seals for my other canners.
I wish I DID have a smaller canner. It would be handier for those leftovers and such. Might have to keep my eye out for one. Does anyone know if other companies make a small canner?

I think about the smallest size for canning now is the 10.5 quart size. It holds 4 quarts. So, that would be the smallest size that is safe to use. The All American I saw that size was $189 !
