ARE YOU COMPLETELY RETARDED! THE PRESSURE BLOWOUT IS THERE FOR A REASON! ARE YOU TRYING TO HURT SOMEONE! THIS IS DANGEROUS! NO ONE DO THIS! Granted the rubber valve stem he used would blow out, but the pressure at that point could be high enough to make it shoot straight through the roof. This is VERY DANGEROUS! No one should do this, rather, if you really feel like adding something to the pressure cooker so you can manually check the pressure, go down to your local car tire repair store and ask for a metal valve stem, they will sell you one for $2-$3. Last time I picked some up for my air cannons I got 3 for free... The guy was nice to me, then drill out a hole in the lid for it(1/4" if I remember correctly) and mount it, it has screws to tighten and rubber seals so that it won't affect your Pressure Coooker, ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE DO NO REMOVE THE BLOW OUT IN YOUR PRESSURE COOKER!

Hey Ripper you FUCK HEAD hostile piece of shit.I don't take kindly to being called a retard :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:
Friends and I have been using this method for years and nothing has EVER happened. That blow-out is there for the reason of people cooking food in the peassure cooker, and a chunk of food jamming the hole. When your sterlizing jars there isn't anything that can plug the hole, making it safe. If, your P-cooker does get pluged, you will notice from the lack of noise it makes.
If anyone is still worreid about using the safty valve hole, then leave the safty valve in place and drill a hole for the Valve stem.
Problem Solved!

Oh YA, Ripper, There's a reason NO-ONE uses those metel valve stems anymore. They have been known to shot out under pressure. That's why valve stems are all rubber cased these days. The rubber ones stay in place.
I think your the one trying to kill someone.

Your both being assholes, just chill.
both of you are doing things which you should never do to a pressure cooker.. just buy a GOOD one.. you can get a fucking huge one with a pressure gague for 70-80.. a good one.. anyway..
both of you are flaming.. just fucking chill.. both of you..
shit man..

I almost didn't, but I will chime in on this one.

I would advise against removing the emergency pressure releif valve. It is true that removing will most likely never result in a problem, but god help you if threre is ever a need for it and your've removed it.

If you really want a pressure guage (it would be kinda neat) just drill another hole in the lid and install a rugular pressure guage.

Peace and safety

Metal Tire Stems popping out under pressure, huh... go figure..thats strange... considering my air cannons are pressurized to 230 PSI on a regular basis, and that when I tried using a rubber valve stem it shot out at 150 PSI. Go figure.. And I've used my air cannons well over 100 times. No problems yet, I don't really see how they could EVER possibly pop out, and I already said the thing about drilling a second hole in there, BTW- to the person who commented on adding a pressure gauge, good idea.

Heheheh, I just have to add to this.

If I were you guys. I wouldn't do JACK SHIT
to my pressure cooker. Here is why.

1. If you fuck with your cooker and it explodes, do you think any company is going to care that you got killed by the exploding lid?

2. The safety is there for a reason like other people have said.

3. Drilling is not a good idea either because last time I checked drill bits heat the fuck out metal and by perforating it you will cause heat distortions in the lid. This make the spot you drilled the weakest point on the lid. Add pressure and you get a very bad idea.

And finally, I don't know what you guys are all concerned about. Normal cookers cook at 15PSI with a normal stop cock. Any sterlization process works at guess what, 15PSI. Just do what DinoMyc said and buy a good one!

For all of you with safty concerns, I will go back a edit the post, just for you.

Ripper - Those metal stems are shit, I know this because I have 2 friends who work in tires. A rubber valve stem, that is installed right, will not move. That why it's rubber valve stems that are installed on large equipment(dump trucks, loader, shidders, etc.)Tires of Equipment like that takes a lot of punishment at high PSI, much more then you could ever do with a air cannon. Why don't you ask your buddy at the tire shop.
dirtydog - Think about what your saying.Pressure cookers get hot when you use them. The metal is ment for heat. There allready 2 hole drilled in the lid. One for the pressure main hole, another for the the safty valve. How do think they put these holes in there - A DRILL. Adding bit of water to the drill area(while drilling) causes no heat at all. But, a drilling a hole with out water doesn't cause much heat. Much less heat then when you use the p-cooker
Normal cooker don't cook a 15 psi. They range anywhere between 8-15 Psi. I've used many over the years. That's why people like gauges on there cookers. You can't get a good strilization time if you don't know your pressure

50 years ago my grand mother was cooking chicken or something in a pressure cooker and the lid blew. she got badly burnts by the steam. my mom told me my grand mother filled the bath tub with ice and got into the tub but she would not let anyone come into the bath room. god that would suck to get burn like that.
