Dishwasher sterilization...
    #2389045 - 02/29/04 03:51 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

...my dishwasher washes things at boiling point, and steams stuff at an intensely high heat for 45 minutes or so. Anybody think I could use it instead of a pressure cooker/vegetable steamer? Has anybody used their dishwasher for this purpose?

Getting rid of bacteria is the goal & you really can't do it with a dishwasher. You sure can get a lot of bacteria with hot water & soap & the drying cycle but there will be some remaining. If you really want to do a proper job you need higher temperatures than boiling offers at 212F at sea level.

When the pressure cooker / Pressure canner works, the steam from the boiling water is trapped inside and with higher pressure, it takes more heat before the water inside boils. By heating in this pressure chamber you easily get temperatures of 250 degrees and this will kill all the bacteria if you leave it at that temperature for long enough.

I've read that people living at higher than 10,000 feet have real problems getting the pressure cookers to work properly but I have no experience with that. For most everyone else the cooker will be the way to sterilize grain/whatever to be sure the innoculation isn't going to result in contamination.

Here's a link for canning food & it says a bit about pressure & temp.

Hope this helps
