A pressure cooker is the best method to penetrate and sterilize grains used for substrates. You may be able to sterilize other items such as tools and syringes in the microwave. Pressure cooking is the most effective way of sterilizing anything in my opinion. Every cultivator should have one.

Ive used bags in the microwave before and they worked, followed instructions from an old kit from mushroom magic, but preasure cooker is far better.

Putting jars in the microwave for 8 minutes will be rougly equivalent to boiling jars for a couple minutes less. It is the heat that sterilizes your jars and substrate so it stands to reason that the higher the heat, the better.

Pressure cookers are better than normal pots because the water in the pressure cookers can get hotter than the water in normal pots. The pressure raises the boiling temperature of the water, allowing it to get hotter before it enters the vapor phase. If you're using PF style substrates, I wouldn't reccomend that you get a pressure cooker. They're only neccesary to sterilize grain/seed substrates that really need those high temperatures to sterilize them thoroughtly.
