using a pot instead of pc?

I was just wondering how long would you sterilize your jars for if using a big pot with lid? Thanks for your reply!

From http://www.fungifun.org/English/Pftek

"If you are unable to find or buy a pressure cooker, you can also sterilize the jars using a big pot with a lid.
In this case steam the jars for 1.5 hours in a pot lid on. Use only approximately 1 inch of water at the bottom.
You might have to add some water to the pot during steaming due to evaporation. "
