10 Must-Have Instant Pot Accessories
The Instant Pot is the ultimate kitchen multitasker, but did you know that your pressure cooker can do even more? With these Instant Pot accessories on Amazon, you can make practically anything.
Multitasking steamer basket and strainer
If you’re looking to steam veggies, make hard-boiled eggs, or even cook up a stock in your Instant Pot, you’ll get a lot of use out of a wire steamer basket. This option has a food-safe silicone handle that folds down so you can seal your pot.
Extra sealing rings
Even if you clean your Instant Pot’s sealing ring regularly, the silicone can take on stronger flavors—meaning no matter how much you wash yours after making this amazing balsamic chicken, you might not be able to get that balsamic flavor out. Play it safe and buy a few spare silicone rings. You don’t need too many extras, but one for savory and one for sweet, plus a bonus one is a great place to start! But first, find out the things you should never make in an Instant Pot.
If you find yourself with leftovers from your favorite Instant Pot dinner, you can stash them easily in the fridge with a reusable silicone cover. This will keep your leftovers fresh; plus, you don’t have to worry about any unexpected spills, like the ones that can come from loosely wrapped plastic wrap.
If you use your Instant Pot regularly, you might want to grab yourself an extra insert to use while your other is in the dishwasher. Just be sure to grab the correct size for your Instant Pot model! Make sure you also know what all those buttons on your Instant Pot are for.
Poach perfect eggs, bake muffins, portion baby food, and much, much more in a Instant Pot-ready silicone mold. This multitasking tool is the perfect accessory for Instant Pot super users.
