pressure cooker suggestions?
    #3251868 - 10/19/04 04:13 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm looking into buying one, because it looks like you can have fair results with boiling jars in a pot of water, but if I was going to use spawn bags, they don't work for the oven (dry out) or the boiling in a pot, so it appears I'd need a pressure cooker.

My question is, what size, and who makes a good pressure cooker? Rellay not looking to have one too small, and really really not looking to get a crappy one that blows up on me.

Thanks,
Mark

Most of the people recommend the "All American Pressure Cookers".
Here is a link:

any sixe suggestion for holding a (preferably more, if possible) 5-pound bag of substrate? (like 2 kilos for metric folks, I believe)

For such a bag a 10 quart cooker would be enough.

But, my advice: buy as big as you can afford, a pressure cooker can NEVER be too big.....

BTW, several of the Shroomery sponsors sell the aforementioned cooker cheaper:

the "All American" is a good one.
I have the "All American 1925X Stove-Top Autoclave"
you can find second-hand on www.ebay.com
or a new on www.balkowitsch.com
(the All American is manufactured in Wisconsin :smile:

I bought my All american model 921 on ebay for 90 bucks. Retail the best price I could find I believe was around 180, and fungi perfecti had it for 250 or something. I run it about once a week and can fit 9 quart jars in that bad boy...

I love my AA 921.5 does 7 qt or 4 half gal., and a ridiculous amount of smaller jars. I am able to PC up to 2 large filter patch bags too.
