So I found these acrylic bead containers. They have screw on lids, kind of like a tall (1,25") petri dish. However, they are made of acrylic and I am worried they would melt in a pressure cooker. I have seen that glad mini rounds withstand the pressure, but maybe they are a more durable material. Any body have any experience with acrylic messes in a pc?

I think it melts not much over 100'C or so. YMMV

Even though I use regular Pyrex petri dishes I find myself using those ball elite 1/2 pint jars more often than not. They work perfectly and aren't too expensive.
But no sorry, I don't have experience with an acrylic like that, just pp5.

Hmm... Guess I'll just say the extra 4 jars isn't worth the price if it's a roll of the dice (Lol good rhymes). I appreciate the responses to such a basic question. Much love and appreciation!

Acrylic will absolutely melt in a PC. Glad mini rounds (and nearly all small tupperware containers) are made of polypropylene and can withstand the temperature. Make sure to have a hole in the lid with polyfil stuffed wad, or the vacuum will deform them.

Good to know!!! Did decide I would just get pp5. Figured acrylic would be more sturdy but I guess thats a bad idea. Always taken the multi spore route before lets see where this path takes me. Wish me luck.

Here are the finished containers, i went with rubbermaid take alongs. I decided to post and let any glad mini round users know the take alongs are much more sturdy. A little more pricy, but quality and visibility are the plus factors I was looking for when starting this thread and i believe i have found it!!

have you run these through the PC?
Or are you pouring? Currently using a tostitos jar, a jelly jar and ¹/⁴ & ¹/² lb salad containers

That do fine on a 45 minute pc run. After a few runs, the lids get a bit loose, you can wrap them or toss them at that point. At 10 cent a piece, pretty cheap to replace.

Dont mess with a silicone port, you need to see the needle when you are squirting spores or you will use way too much water. Just take the lid off and careful squirt your droplet of spore solution in the SAB or FH. Otherwise noice!
