Using a Pressure Cooker
    #470329 - 11/26/01 06:18 PM (22 years, 3 months ago)

Hi, I recently got a pressure cooker from eBay.

I am not 100% sure as to how to use it since it came with no instructions and I don't have a mom around to tell me...

Anyway, what is the procedure, as far as like, how much water to put in.

Also, the maximum PSI it does is 15 psi sooo also some input on that please.

Thanks a lot

Put your jars in the cooker and add enough water so the water level is no more than half way up the sides of the bottom layer of jars. Seal the cooker and heat. Start timing the sterilization when the pressure is at 15 pounds. Let the cooker cool slowly, over night is best, and do not open until it has cooled.

why is it important to let a pressure cooker cool over night with your jars inside before opening it up?
