Microwave PC's
    #4045070 - 04/12/05 12:19 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Hey whats up everyone, so I keep seeing all these damn microwave pressure cookers all over ebay, and constantly dismiss them.  But thinking about it, has anyone ever used them for sterilizing casing material?  I'm talking about something like this.  I've got a PC, but it gets on my nerves sometimes to bust out this big ass PC just to cook some frikin dirt (not really dirt, i know someone will say something lol).  I just don't see the point of loading my casing mix into jars, getting them dirty, just to unload and use it.  Most of the ones I've seen are like 10 or 12 cups, so that'd hold about 3 qts of casing mix, plenty for me since I don't case all my trays at the same time... Any thoughts anyone??? :stoned:

hmmm..how many PSI does that thing cook at?
I don't trust anything that has to do with microwaves (they are evil).
Ever thought of baking your casing mix? Works fine on my vermiculite and perlite.

(then again, im a n00b! :whoa: )

Not sure of the psi, but alot of people just nuke their casing mix with very good success rates. I'm a little more anal, so I usually PC mine, but I'd take a slight hit on psi for convenience... I wouldn't bake my casing mix cuz that'd fuck up my moisture content and just create more work for me...

I just used a sealed container and microwave for casings. I usually do a 50/50 peatmoss/verm. 3 one minute cycles with a 1 minute wait in between gets it to 280F and in the sealed container will keep it above 250F for over an hour.

Thats all your trying to do is get it to 250 for an hour anyways.

Works great. If you have a thermometer check the core temperature of the container to make sure your at the right temp.

Microwave times will vary.
