Ok about 20 minutes ago i got a call telling me to put the oven to 350 and then put the potatoes in it. This made me wonder.. when you boil water to steralize your jars it goes up to like 180 or something right? or thats what you need it to go to in the pressure cooker? well i know its something like that.. so what if you just put your jars in the oven? why wouldnt that work? i mean if it did work, someone would have thought about it along time ago..

don't be puttin' your jars of substrate in the oven to sterilize them.

Boiling water reaches a max temp of 212F. A pressure cooker brings this temp up to 250F.

A pressure cooker will take the temp up to 250F WITHOUT drying the contents out. An oven set to 250F will not have the same effect because no pressure exists to keep the moisture in the jar. Plus, without pressure, the center of the jars will not become hot enough within an hour, and by the time it does, you'll have substrate with a moisture level tantamount to dust.

Stick to the pressure cooker. You're right, if it worked, why would anyone have a pressure cooker.
