OFFICIAL INSTANT POT ACCESSORIES
1. Must Have: Genuine Instant Pot Silicone Sealing Ring
Instant Pot Sealing Rings’ life expectancy varies. If steam starts to leak around the lid, you’ll need to replace the Instant Pot Sealing Ring immediately.
Avoid buying sealing rings from third parties, as it is vital to Instant Pot’s safety features. Direct Quote from the Instant Pot Company: “There may be serious safety concerns associated with using an untested sealing ring on Instant Pot products.”
For 8 Quart Instant Pot DUO80 (US & UK): Genuine Instant Pot Silicone Sealing Ring (8Qt)
The official Sweet & Savory Silicone Sealing Ring are finally in stock (US only)!!
Since the Silicone Sealing Ring tends to absorb the food odor after cooking, many users like to use separate sealing rings for cooking savory dishes and desserts.
With 2 separate colors, you don’t have to worry about mixing them up again.
It’s very handy to have an extra Instant Pot Inner Pot. One for cooking and the other for storing leftovers with the glass or silicone lid in the fridge.
This ceramic non-stick inner pot is both PTFE and PFOA free. If you prefer a non-stick inner pot, this is a good option for your 6 quart Instant Pot.
Great for slow cooking in the Instant Pot. You can use this Instant Pot Glass Lid for “Keep Warm Mode” and storing the whole inner pot with leftovers in the fridge.
*Note: This works with the Slow Cook function on all Instant Pot models purchased after Jan. 2014.
This cover fits your 6 quart Instant Pot’s Inner Pot. It’s a great way to store leftovers straight in the inner pot without dirtying another container, especially if you don’t have the above Instant Pot Glass Lid.
These food-grade heat resistant silicone mitts are more flexible than the full-on silicone gloves. It will not provide as much protection, but it is more convenient for lighter work. You can easily slip them on and off.
Plus, it’ll bring out your inner child with some puppet fun! 😉
PRESSURE COOKER INSERTS
Such a game changer!
Use this as a steamer basket or strainer – wash your vegetables, put them in the basket, and put the basket straight into Instant Pot’s inner pot.
It saves time especially when you’re making things like chicken stock. You can easily remove all the ingredients at once instead of scooping them out bit by bit.
No wonder this is one of the fans’ favorite Instant Pot Accessories!
*Note: Remove the two handles with a piler to fit it in your Instant Pot.
9. Must Have: Stainless Steel Steaming Rack Stand 5″ Diameter
A popular budget-friendly steaming rack we couldn’t live without! They’re so useful that we actually have 4 of these for daily usage.
It’s especially useful for our Pot-In-Pot (PIP) Recipes such as pressure cooker teriyaki chicken and rice and regular steaming on stovetop.
10. Must Have: 100% Premium Stainless Steel Steamer Basket (Must Have!)
Another great steamer basket we use frequently! Fits perfectly in the Instant Pot. The feet can keep the veggies and other food out of the liquid for optimal steaming results in your Instant Pot.
This is another popular steamer basket option if you prefer silicone over stainless steel. It’s made of BPA free silicone, flexible, easy to clean, with nice long handles, and easy storage.
This is another popular Stainless Steel Steamer Rack and Basket Set that fits the 6 quart Instant Pot perfectly. The handles on the steamer basket provide ease to lift food from the pot.
Users also love how it’s sturdy, quality built, works great, and easy to clean.
FOR MAKING CHEESECAKE
This is one of the most popular Instant Pot Accessories cheesecake pans in the Instant Pot community. Make sure to get the 7-inch, as the 8-inch cheesecake pan will not fit in the 6 quart Instant Pot.
FOR MAKING YOGURT
This BPA free strainer will transfer your homemade Instant Pot yogurt into a thick, creamy Greek yogurt 🙂
This is the one we use. It’s a newer version of the Euro Cuisine Greek Yogurt Maker that features a stainless steel strainer.
INSTANT POT STARTER KIT
This is a highly popular starter kit among our Instant Pot readers.
This Instant Pot Starter Accessories Kit includes:
- Pair of Mini Mitts – Great for gripping the inner pot while sautéing or grabbing the inner pot when removing it from the main unit.
- Heat Resistant Mat / Pot Holder – Keep your counters & tables safe by sitting your inner pot on these heat resistant pot holders.
- Suction Sealing Lid – Cover the inner pot with this lid to keep the heat in your pot when it’s removed from the main unit. Or you can put it over the main unit while your inner pot is removed, so you won’t accidentally pour ingredients into your main unit (this happens more easily and often than you’d think! ? ).
FOR HANDLING HOT CONTAINERS
Great for taking hot pans and dishes out of the Instant Pot for the Pot-in-Pot (PIP) cooking method.
We always suffer with wet oven mitts. Never ever grab a hot pan with wet oven mitts as the heat transfers so much faster this way!
So, we bought these quality, well-made Heat Resistant Silicone Gloves. They are waterproof and steam cannot penetrate through. This Best Seller is made with premium FDA rated silicone.
