We have a couple different size older Presto canners.. We also have 6-7 different size All American canners.. All from garage sales or thrift stores. The only size we do not have is the 41QT All American.... When, where ever all were acquired they all go a good clean up, new gauge, safety seal and test run to assure good working order..
My Sweetie will use the Prestos depending on product being canned, and jar size used... However 99.9% of the time she uses her All American canners..
Every ones need and experience will be different...
It's my first-choice, go-to canner. I got mine at the flea market for 15$ years ago. A new gasket and it's like new.

I presume you are talking about a Presto style canner as you say "new gasket" ??
