Default Pressure Cookers for home autoclave

I'm putting together my home culture lab and I'm about to get a pressure cooker. I know I need one that will reach 15 PSI, but aside from that, I don't know anything about pressure cookers.

I'm looking at a couple models on Amazon.com and would like some feedback if anyone is willing to help.

Here are the ones I'm looking at:

1. Presto 23-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker/Canner
http://www.amazon.com/Presto-23-Quart-Aluminum-Pressure-Cooker/dp/B0000BYCFU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1268241524&sr=8-1

2. Mirro 22-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker/Canner
http://www.amazon.com/Mirro-22-Quart-Aluminum-Pressure-Cooker/dp/B000RNH7PQ/ref=sr_1_35?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1268241494&sr=8-35

Really the difference between the two is the price and one has a pressure gauge and the other doesn't. Is there any benefit for a gauge or to not have one at all?

And besides using it for an autoclave, I'll probably use it for some canning and cooking too, since I'll have it around.

If it's a pressure cooker that is big enough to fit your needs, it's fine.
