pressure cookers and sterilization
    #531128 - 01/25/02 05:11 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

are pressure cookers essentially just pots with better seals that you put on the oven, or are they things that you plug into a wall and dont need a hotplate for?

I'm in a situation where I'm unable to use a hotplate for cooking, but need a way of sterilizing jars. PC seemed obvious, except that I dont if they plug in or sit on a hotplate. Any other ideas very welcome too =)

I think that you're stuck. Pressure cookers work the same way as a boiling pot of water does, except, it has a much better seal in which it allows pressure and higher tempuratures. There are things, sterilizers/autoclaves, that plug in to sterilize. They act, for the most part, like a pressure cooker without the need of a hotplate etc. I've heard of microwave sterilization success, but unfortuantly, I cant point you towards any teks. Also, sterilization in the oven will not work because it is dry heat.

I really dont know what to suggest here.

You can use an oven with autoclave bags. The microwave will also work. Just search. But to be brutally honest with you, you need a pc. In all likelihood you will fail as a beginner without a pc. You can of course boil jars in a pot with success, but without a burner you are SOL with that too. If you are serious about your new hobby, find a way to get a burner to use. Also try the Search for Faq's.

in the dorms i'm in we're not allowed to use hotplates


of course, I just realized the irony of this because it's not as though I'd be allowed to grow drugs either =p
