Sterilizing jars

instead of using a pressure cooker to sterilize jars, couldn't you just put them in an oven at the same temperature the pressure cooker would be at?

For $40 at Walmart the Mirro 8 quart model will do 5 pints or 4 quart jars, and is the only PC at Walmart that goes to 15 psi, the others are just 10 psi.

It's no good, the jars will just dry out.  Also, air doesn't come close to water as far as transmitting heat.  You might think your jars are sterile because the oven says 400, but for all you know the inside of your jars are still room temp after an hour.  Get a pressure cooker. :smile:
