PC question
    #1262560 - 01/30/03 05:21 PM (14 years, 28 days ago)

Why do people love using pressure cookers so much, when an oven is completely capable of reaching the same (and even higher) temperatures?

Because pressure cookers use steam to sterilise substrates. Steam transfers heat better and more evenly than radiation. Also it prevents the substrates from drying out. Some people do use ovens with decent results.

I will move this thread to Mushroom cultivation as it is not a grow log. This forum is for posting grow logs.

First the oven is dry heat. Second, the surrounding temperature but as long as there is water in the substrate, it will never reach over 212 degrees. With a pressure cooker the temperature of the substrate will be over 212 degrees.
