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.
If you’re looking to steam veggies, make hard-boiled eggs or even stock in your Instant Pot, you’ll get a lot of use out of a wire steamer basket ($15). This option has a food-safe silicone handle that folds down so you can seal your pot. Can’t decide between an Instant Pot, slow cooker, pressure cooker or Dutch oven? Find out which one is best for you.
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 ($12). You don’t need too many extras, but one for savory, one for sweet (plus a bonus one) is a great place to start!
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 ($10). 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). Check out this hack to keep your food containers in order.
If you plan on using your Instant Pot as a slow cooker, you may want to consider purchasing a glass lid ($15) for your new appliance. This allows you to see into your Instant Pot while your favorite slow cooker dinners bubble away.

After cooking, the liner of your Instant Pot can be pretty hot! One of our top safety tips is to handle the pot with care. These heatproof silicone gloves ($16) are less clumsy than hot pads or oven mitts—in fact, you’ll likely find yourself using these gloves all the time in the kitchen!
If you’re working double time in your Instant Pot, you’ll love these stackable pans ($35). Cook fish in one and veggies in the other (or whatever combos you create!). This is a great way to multitask.
