Polystyrene is not pressure cookable, so you would have problems sterilising them if you plan on reusing them....

if you're using peroxidated agar, then yes.
I've reused my present set of polystyrene plates maybe 5 times by now, just boiling them for 5 mins before pouring the agar.

in the long run, glass is cheaper. you can put them in the pressure cooker and keep reusing versus buying more. mabe you can use the plastic ones, sterilize, clean and heat your oven and work in there. thats what i plan on doing.
