Or for absolute cheapest monotub and pressure cooker grow:

  • Aluminum rocker-weight PC: $25
  • A spore print ($10) or syringe ($20)
  • Some jars $0-$10
  • Bag of Whole Brown Rice, Bird Seed, popcorn.. etc: $4
  • Three bricks of coir from the pet store: $7
  • Big bag of verm: $7
  • Plastic tub: $3-$10
  • Lifetime supply of polyfill: $5

    This could yield 4-6oz dry per tub, with enough coir to do 3 grows, could be 4oz(pessimistic)-18oz(optimistic) dry for ~$88.

    Subsequent grows will cost much less: coir/verm/bird seed would be the only recurring expenses making it $18 for 4-18oz.

You don't need a fancy instantpot or whatever. This one works just as well and is far more economical. I use mine at least weekly. But as another Redditor said, you can make this in a regular pot as well.

I've been using this simple & inexpensive stove-top pressure cooker for a few months & it's great.

It's a quick & easy way to make large quantities of food at low-cost, and the food comes out way better than a microwave.

I throw in a few pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts & about 25 minutes later, I've got enough chicken to split across meals for a few days.

I cut a few sweet potatoes into big chunks, toss 'em in the pressure cooker, & in less than 10 minutes they come out soft enough to easily mash for a tub of mashed sweet potatoes that last me a few days.

At first, I was a bit intimidated by the thought of potential dangers with the pressurized pot, but I read the brief instruction booklet very carefully & learned just how easy it is to use.

My mom has made soup her entire life and now she always makes soup in a pressure cooker. Very little steam/aroma is able to escape, and because it creates a seal, I believe that the soup cooks at a higher temperature. So what would take a couple hours to cook takes 30-45 minutes. Something like this:

This one here will easily fit 6 half pint wide mouth jars and it come in at a pretty nice price.

> $40, Presto - Stellar reviews, however, the product is aluminum and not stainless steel as advertised. Reviews warn about rusting and overall poorer quality in models purchased after 2012.

Presto makes both aluminum and stainless models:

I borrow one that is similar to this guy:

I use it for agar. Have to put a few canning rings down to elevate it. I tried a few bags inside, every single time they melt to the side of the pressure cooker. It just gets too hot on the sides.

I've never seen a pressure cooker of any kind in my local good will.

I have 2 of these. They work awesome:

Of course all American is the best you can buy:

I have 1 of those too.

Yes, but you shouldn't have to pay that much for a decent one.

I've had this one for over two years now and I use it 3-4 times a week and it's still going rock solid.

The cheap cooker I found on amazon is here. It's not electric, so I imagine this is why its so much cheaper. I think the end of my other comment sums it up for me.

> I guess this whole exercise proves to me that, if you have nothing else, the versatility of this appliance could make it worth it. But if you already have a fully functional kitchen, it seems pretty unnecessary.
