So by now I’m sure you’ve heard all about the Instant Pot right?
If not, here is a quick explanation.
An Instant Pot is an electric pressure cooker that can do some amazing things!
There are a few different models and sizes available. Some people opt to own more than one, they are that awesome!
As a family of 5, we chose the larger 8qt size. This is the one we have: IP-Duo 7-in-1 8qt.
Once you’ve got your Instant Pot, there are a few accessories that can make using your pot even more fun! Here are some of my favorite accessories!
A tempered glass lid comes in so handy! You can use it when your Instant Pot is in “Keep Warm” mode, while Sauteing, or when using it as a slow cooker. Of course you could just use the big lid that comes with your pot, but we all know that it’s more fun to SEE your food cooking! The glass lid is also helpful when you have left overs and just want to put the whole stainless steal insert in your fridge.

Extra silicone sealing rings! Once you’ve cooked a few times with your pot you will start to notice that it holds onto smells. Many people choose to have a few different sealing rings (in different colors to tell them apart). This way you can reserve one for use with savory foods, and another for sweet foods (did you know you can make cheese cake in the Instant Pot?!).

An extra stainless steel inner cooking pot! If your like me, sometimes your in a hurry and so you just put the whole pot of left overs in the fridge. But then when you want to make something else in your Instant Pot, you have to move your left overs into another pot so you can wash and reuse your inner pot. For those times when you just don’t feel like doing that, you can use your extra inner cooking pot!

Silicone Lid! When storing your left overs in the fridge, use this silicone lid. It creates an airtight, spill proof and watertight seal on the Instant Pot stainless steel inner pot.
