I am using a plain kitchen pressure cooker to sterilize. Works great, no contamination ever so far. However, I'd like to be able to monitor the pressure I am achieving. I was thinking about removing the safery valve which exposes a nice 1/4" hole in the lid. Fitting a automotive-type (like I am using to chcec cylinder presure, A/c etc.) pressu gauge seems like a possibility, however I am concerned about the heat and corrosion caused by the H20 steam. Has anyone done it and what type of gauge would you recommend? I am sure the are pro lab gauges, but you'd have a hard time convincing me to spend more than $10 or so on the 'gauge project' . . .
