When it comes to Instant Pot, there is virtually no limit to the things you can make in there. Everything from soup to nuts – literally! The world of Instant Pot accessories gets bigger all the time, but this is a list of my favorites.
Instant Pot Tempered Glass Lid – This lid is a must if you use your Instant Pot as a slow cooker. You’ll love being able to peek in there and see how things are going while keeping the heat in. The special hole in the top allows the top to vent. It’s also dishwasher and oven safe – did you know that you can stick your inner pot right in the oven? This lid makes things go a little bit smoother; no need for foil.
Genuine Instant Pot Sealing Ring 2-Pack – 6 Quart Red/Blue – I haven’t heard anyone ever say that they have too many sealing rings. Sometimes, if you use a lot of spices, they can start to carry a scent. Many people like to have one ring for savory dishes and one ring for sweet dishes. If I’m being honest, I put my entire Instant Pot lid in the dishwasher with the ring and haven’t ever had an odor. I do have an extra ring, however, just in case.
Genuine Instant Pot Ceramic Non-Stick Interior Coated Inner Cooking Pot – 6 Quart & Sealing Ring 2-Pack – 6 Quart Red/Blue – This one is actually on my own wish list. I don’t need the rings, but I hate dishes and wouldn’t mind not having to scrub the bottom of my Instant Pot. Yes, sometimes that happens, no matter what you’ve heard. If you’re planning on getting the rings anyway, this is a great deal.
Instant Pot Stainless Steel Inner Cooking Pot – 6 Quart – This makes a great replacement pot for your inner pot, but it also gives you more cooking space. You can make mashed potatoes in one pot and keep them warm in the oven while you make your pot roast right in the Instant Pot. Dinner is served and you still only have two pots to wash.
Genuine Instant Pot Silicone Lid 5 and 6 Quart – I like to think that the Instant Pot brand was thinking of me when they made this Instant Pot Accessory. It’s so perfect. Leftovers go right into the refrigerator with the handy silicone lid. It’s dishwasher safe, too!
Instant Pot Mesh Large Steamer Basket – This is a must have for any Instant Pot lover. You can steam just about anything in this basket. The last time I used it I steamed beets. (See below.) The basket is big enough for steaming all kinds of vegetables, fish & more. It also doubles as a strainer. It’s stainless steel and dishwasher safe.
Instant Pot Mesh Steamer Baskets – Set of 2 – This includes the large steamer basket (above) and a smaller one as well. This happens to be the deal I got when I bought mine.
Instant Pot Round Cake Pan – You know all those recipes you see for Instant Pot cheesecake? This is the pan you need to make it! It’s one of my favorite Instant Pot accessories.
Silicone Egg Bites Pan with Lid – Egg bites are one of my favorite ways to start the morning! This Instant Pot Accessory also works for muffins, cupcakes, baby food, and yogurt. It even goes from freezer right to Instant Pot. And of course, it’s dishwasher safe.
Instant Pot Bakeware Sling – I saved the best for last. I wish I’d had this from the very beginning. If you only purchase one thing on this list, this is the thing. It can literally save your hands from severe burns. This silicone sling will help you take out bowls and pans and even some foods from your Instant Pot. It’s definitely a must-have.
As I said before, there are so many Instant Pot Accessories you can get, and each one is fabulous. I usually try to stick with Instant Pot officially branded products because I know they stand behind them, though I’m really considering getting this Instant Pot dragon steam diverter. Isn’t it cool?
