Re: Pressure Cookers Vs. Canning Pots (boiling water)

I'm not sure that there would be a huge dif. between the two as far as contam. rates are concerned... The bonus with using pressure cookers would be if you are using whole grain substrates (rye grain, etc...)- they'll cook much faster in a pressure cooker because higher pressure makes for higher boiling temp. of water. Remember, PV=nRT? I love eating beans, for instance, but hate waiting for them to cook all day; so I throw them in the PC (as you put it) and only have to wait 45 minutes! (By the way, I read a post here about military surplus PC's for dirt cheap.)

i've never used anything but a pot of boiling water, and never had any contam problems out of 23 jars. however, i think i am going to start experimenting with oven sterilization, as it seems like it might be much, much more convenient.

I've never used a pressure cooker either, and I also have never had a contam problem. The very first time I used a pot of boiling water and lost ten cakes... that almost did it for me. But my next try I tried using the microwave (fill a tray just enough to the cakes don't float, and blast for 10 minutes). I've never had a problem since. Another plus is all my components are dishwasher and microwave safe... and I only shelled out about 10 bucks for my terrarium, and ten jars. I've always wanted to try a PC though... it seems like it would be more efficient.
