No gasket pressure cookers use a secure metal-to-metal design that is extremely tight sealing.
I particularly like these types of pressure cookers because they make cleanup a lot easier and you never have to worry about inspecting, losing, or replacing your gasket.
Lids for these types of pressure cookers simply sit flush on the pot and connect with a series of screw on fasteners that clamp down hard.
There are many pressure canners made by All American that use no gaskets but in the smaller pressure cooker space they are harder to find unless you are OK using an antique model.
I hope you’ll scroll down the page and take a look at my selection of the best metal on metal pressure cookers for sale today.
My Picks for Best Pressure Cookers Without Gaskets
Here are a Few More Pressure Cookers That Don’t Have Gaskets
The All American listed above is probably the best option because it’s actually small enough to do regular pressure cooking in but there are a few more to choose from. The models listed below are basically exactly the same as the 10 1/2 quart model above just bigger. You’ll probably only ever use them for pressure cooking and canning. See below for the list.
- All-American 15.5 Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner – Model #915 – You can fit 7 quart jars or 10 pint sized jars in this.
- All-American 21.5-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner – Model #921 – You can fit 7 quart jars or 19 pint sized jars in this.
- All-American 25-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner – Model #925 – You can fit 7 quart jars or 19 pint sized jars in this.
- All-American 30-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner – Model #930 – You can fit 14 quart jars or 19 pint sized jars in this.
- All-American 41.5-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner – Model #941 – You can fit 19 quart jars or 32 pint sized jars in this.
*Also note, I’ve decided not to list old model metal on metal pressure cookers because they aren’t made any longer and used units are not going to be as safe as the machined All American pressure cookers that still use no gaskets. If you cared to though your best bet on finding alternatives to All American pressure cookers would be on eBay.
