Default Purchasing a pressure canner:

Owing three, I would rank them as follows:

All-American with a gauge. Big enough for 2 layers of 7-8 pint size jars, or 7 quarts.

All- American with gauge. Holds 7 pint or quart jars.

Presto with bell gauge which holds 4 pints.

The bell gauge is the easiest to use, but you must be right on top of it and it doesn't allow you to adjust for atmospheric pressure changes.
