Initially produce heat over high heat until the valve is from under comes out with a hiss of steam, then reduce the heat and time intersect.

After the sterilization process heat is removed and wait until it stops hissing steam (you can gently steam pit, lifting valve with a spoon). banks
removed using a special clamp and removed to complete cooling. If the banks roll conventional disposable lids, the products are placed so that the top layer did not reach the edges of the banks in the 1-1.5 cm, or may disrupt the cover during sterilization.
