slow cooker vs. pressure cooker?
    #6407841 - 12/29/06 01:31 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

The last attempt i made to sterilize my jars, i used a regular pot and lid for about an hour and a half and all jars became contaminated. I do have in my posession a slow cooker, but it only has a low and high setting. Would it be alright to use this instead of a pressure cooker?

Thanks

That would be an enourmous waste of time. What kind of slow cooker do you have that can even hold mason jars? :eek:

its made my hamilton beach and has a 6 quart capacity (holds 7 1/2 pint jars) and has an airtight lid. I'd like to know why you believe it would be a waste of time - surely it must be a better option than a standard pot and lid, which i know has been effective for some in the past...

Slow cookers are those such as crock pots that operate below the boiling point of water. A pressure cooker operates well above the boiling point of water. You need a pressure cooker or autoclave to sterilize properly.
