Now that I’ve had my Instant Pot for awhile and am getting more comfortable using it (I’m a pro at these beginner recipes now!), I’m feeling brave enough to branch out a lot. I’ve always hearing from folks in the official Facebook community for Instant Pot about how they are making cheesecakes and sous vide eggs. I’m constantly tempted to buy this accessory of that one, based on these recipes, so I decided to ask everyone in that group what their top accessory find has been. Hopefully, knowing those top options will mean I can collect all of the Instant Pot accessories I’ll need to make the best recipes.
These are the Instant Pot accessories that popped up as the answer to my question most. Hopefully, you’re also getting braver with your new toy and will find these Instant Pot accessories helpful to expand your ability to use this handy tool as well.
Must-Have Instant Pot Accessories
Instant Pot silicone steamer set will maximize your space in your Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. The set includes a sturdy silicone steam rack with long legs to keep it out of the water when steaming. The steam rack has long handles to enable safe and easy removal of the accessories fitted onto its molded rim. A silicone steamer basket designed to fit on the steam rack and can be stacked two high in the Instant Pot 6 and 8 Quart. Silicone broiler pan with a gloss finish for non-stick easy cleaning stacks securely on the steam rack or the steamer basket.
Instant Pot silicone springform pan is ideal for cheesecake, regular cake and other delicious dishes. It is designed to fit onto the silicone steam rack for easy removal from your Instant Pot. The clips hold the pan together and open to allow easy release. With the tempered glass base one may prepare, cut, and serve on the same platter. Internal Diameter: 6.5”, Depth: 2.5”
Sous Vide Eggs are not only possible but a great recipe for your Instant Pot. These multipurpose egg bites molds fit perfectly in your 6 qt or 8 qt Instant Pot. The tray and lid may also be used in the freezer, and the tray may also be used in the microwave and the oven (up to 425 F). Use for cooking, baking, freezing, or as a mold.
Instant Pot Sealing Rings for Sweet or Savory cooking are a must-have because the flavors of the foods you cook do get into the sealing ring. While it doesn’t matter for the most part, you will want to keep the sweet ring for your desserts and the savory ring for your savory dishes. It just makes sense.
Instant pot mini mitts are designed for comfort with the thumb and fingers ridged inside face for strong gripping of the cooking pot. May be used to grip the cooking pot when stirring the contents or to lift the inner cooking pot.
The Instant pot tempered glass lid with steam vent and stainless steel rim and handle is ideal for when your cooker goes into the “Keep-Warm” mode and when using the “Sauté” and “Slow Cook” programs. It may also be used in the oven with the inner cooking pot up to 428F (220C). This genuine Instant Pot lid makes it ideal for serving and is easy to clean.
Hard-boiled eggs are the first thing I made in my Instant Pot and I still love making them often. What I didn’t love is that at least 3 of the eggs would crack and leak when I just piled them into the pot. With these stackable racks, that problem is fixed!
These cute little ramekins work well for individual cakes and other recipes. They are oven, dishwasher, and microwave safe as well.
Having a secondary Instant Pot inner pot makes it convenient and easy when preparing multiple dishes with your Instant Pot cooker.
This pot gripper makes retrieving your Instant Pot inner lining easy and safe. And they come in all kinds of adorable colors. The locking mechanism allows the retriever tongs to securely clamp the cookware.
There are many, many other accessories I’ll likely purchase in the future. But for now, these are my top picks. I hope you find the list useful as you enjoy cooking with your Instant Pot with these helpful Instant Pot accessories!
