A Pressure cooker question....
    #1290552 - 02/08/03 09:11 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I got a pressure cooker from a friend and it has a special weight thing that only allows it to pressure cook at 10 psi. would this be enough to get the jars sterile? Or do I need to buy one that will do 15 psi? Let me know what you all think.

Peace

yes, it will work, just have to cook longer.
from TMC:
"Note the effect achieved from sterilizing at 60 minutes at 15psi is the same as that from 30 minutes at 30psi. Hence a doubling of pressure reduces sterilization time by one half....."

Chart from TMC:
Relationship of pressure and temperature at constant volume:
10psi = 240F
15psi = 250F.

With that information you can do the math....

So since 10 psi is 2/3 of 15 psi I should pressure cook them an extra third of an hour so 80 minutes should do it. I hope so. Thanks alot, I'll just PC them 90 min. or so to be sure. Thanks again.

Peace
