I’ve been sharing Instant Pot recipes every week this year. My family and I love the simplicity & easy clean up of our Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.

Here are 10 must-have accessories to make dinner a breeze with your Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Lid

The Instant Pot Lid is a tempered glass lid that looks similar to the lid you’d see on a slow cooker. It allows you to put your Instant Pot out in your serving area and keep the pot covered when people aren’t using it, without having to manage the bulky pressure lid.

Instant Pot Silicone Lid

The Instant Pot Silicone Lid is perfect for covering up your leftovers and saving them in the fridge. You can pull them right back out and warm them up in your Instant Pot.

Instant Pot Stainless Steel Inset

If you’re looking to make multiple dishes and don’t have time for the cleanup in between, it may not be necessary to purchase a second Instant Pot. Buy an extra stainless steel insert to have on hand.

Instant Pot Sealing Rings

10 must-have accessories for your instant pot

It’s great to have an extra sealing ring or two on hand when cooking multiple things in one day. The rings can get a little smelly and need to be deep cleaned. In addition they will wear out fairly quickly if you’re using your Instant Pot frequently. And who doesn’t?!

Instant Pot Mini Mitts

Not only are the Instant Pot Mini Mitts absolutely adorable, but they’re great for grabbing the stainless steel insert out of the pot while it’s still hot so that you can set it on a trivet or clean it out.

Instant Pot Stainless Steel Strainer

Steam veggies and contain other items in a stainless steel strainer, rather than a steaming basket. It will hold more items and all you have to do is quickly remove the handles!

Instant Pot Cheesecake Pans

10 must-have accessories for your instant pot

It’s easy to make cheesecake and other desserts in the Instant Pot. Invest in smaller springform pans (my favorite are Wilton’s Mini Springform Pans) or a pan with a removable bottom like Fat Daddios’ 7” Pan with a Removable bottom.

Silicone Baking Cups

Silicone baking cups are great for dessert items, like cupcakes or cake, but they also are great for those wishing to cook smaller servings.

Instant Pot Trivet

Looking to place multiple small items in the Instant Pot like springform pans or silicone baking cups? Invest in stainless steel trivets. The varied heights will allow for easy stacking within the pan. They can also keep food items up out of the water if you’re using water in the bottom of the pot.

Silicone Bands

These elastic bands are great for putting around bottles, pans or using as a sling to remove hot items from the Instant Pot.
