You actually can use a pot of boiling water. Here's what to do:
* Take a good-sized cooking pot.
* Put a towel on the bottom, to prevent direct contact between the bottom of the pot and the bottoms of the jars.
* Fill the pot with water right to a level where the jars don't float. (If they don't float at all, fill the pot to a couple of inches underneath the jar lids.)
* Cook the whole damn bunch for at least an hour.
* During cooking, refill with hot water if needed. There must ALWAYS be at least an inch of water in the pot!

BUT, if you have a pressure cooker, I suggest you use it. A pressure cooker has the advantage of being able to reach temperatures in excess of 212F (100C), which is preferred for sterilization.

A friend of mine bought the same one you did I would assume, as they only had one type that I saw. His was made out of Aluminum (I think), and he wore out the seal on it in about a month.

10 psi wont get you to 250 degrees as required, but will work far better than steaming.
