My pressure canner is an All American 921. The best thing about it is that it can hold 16 pint jars in one load. That's a very handy feature for things like chicken stock and tomato sauce.
I used to kill the large burners on my electric stove every few years becuase of overheating with a canner running all day. Now I have my dream stove, propane with 2 'powerburners' and a top grate that is continuous so pots can be slid off of the burner without having to lift them.
nice!! Yeah, my burner that I use only for this in well, you can tell I have used it a lot this summer..hahaha, especially the burner "tray"..pretty darn black now..at least they are not too expensive to replace. That canner of yours sounds mighty fine!!! 16 pint jars..wow!! .Mine is/was my grandmother to give you an idea..hahaha, may hold..8..maybe 9 pints...hahaha...it is a big pot, but...and it is only for water bath.
