Homebrewing: How Big Does Pressure Cooker Need To Be?

Not sure whether home brewing related posts are allowed so delete if necessary.

I want to use the steam method to sterilise my “equipment” and am unsure of how big of a pressure cooker I would need to get. I’ve been looking at a 4l one but have no idea whether that size is enough.

I would imagine it would depend on how big your equipment that you are trying to sterilize is? You arnt going to sterilize a 1 gallon jug in a 1 litter cooker
