Would like to add........
I believe most evidence indicates that it's not the source of the heat but
rather the time/temperature/buffer.  pressure cookers and autoclaves work
better because they can achieve temperatures above boiling as well as obtain
those temps faster.

We do various pretreatments here. The pretreatment we use most frequently is
microwave pressure cook. We use a pressure cooker intended for use in the
microwave. We buy the pressure cooker off the internet. I'm a big fan of
steaming, too. Just fyi.
