The Alternative to "Wet Pack" Canning
When It Comes to Successful Dry Pack Canning
The Can Sealer
Makes It All Possible
Choice of Ten Models
ALL-AMERICAN Can Sealers are designed for use by Commercial Canners, Custom Canners, School Canneries, Lunch Rooms, Experimental Laboratories, Gift Packaging Centers, and Home Canners. Even on the manually operated machines the sealing process is completely automatic, requiring no extra levers to push or pull.
Automatic Master Can Sealers are guaranteed against defects in material and workmanship, but do require some maintenance, including simple but necessary oiling, and seasonal applications of fibre grease to sealer gears. The Master series can be upgraded to handle up to No. 3 cans.
ALL-AMERICAN Senior Can Sealers are similar in many respects to the Master series of can sealers, but unlike the Master series they ARE designed to handle the larger No. 10 and No. 12 size cans so popular in dry pack canning. They can also be adapted to handle the smaller sizes, although additional components may need to be purchased (dependant upon model selected).
Senior Can Sealers are more of a heavy duty machine, but like the can sealers from the Master series, they too require some maintenance - following the guidelines clearly set forth in the accompanying manuals. Every All-American can sealer is proudly produced in the U.S. by WAFCO (Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry).
Store-It Foods does carry
for most of the standard sized cans available for use in your Dry Pack Canner.
STORE-IT FOODS does not currently sell either the oxygen absorber packets commonly used in dry pack canning, or the cans themselves. If you do not have local access to these products, they are available through a number of online firms. The oxygen absorber packets should present little problem in locating. The food grade cans, however, may be another matter. There are a number of firms selling them, but many of these companies sell only by the pallet or in some similarily large quantity.
For your convenience, you might like to begin your search with Freund Container or House of Cans. Both of these firms make it possible for the consumer to purchase their can sealer supplies in smaller lots.
