12 Must-Have Accessories for The Instant Pot!

Are you an Instant Pot convert? Did you ditch your CrockPot and throw yourself into the Instant Pot all the way? Do you use both (like me)? Are you still undecided? (If that is you read my Instant Pot vs CrockPot post now!). Well, however you describe yourself, these are accessories for the Instant Pot that you will want in your cabinet!

All of the accessories for the Instant Pot listed are for a 6qt Instant Pot but many have options for other sizes as well once you visit the product page.

Accessories for The Instant Pot That You Have to Have!

IP Liner

Extra Instant Pot Inner Liner – Want to use your Instant Pot for more than one dish for your meal? An easy way is to have more than one inner liner.

non stick inner pot

Non-stick Inner Liner – Saute or make rice a lot? This liner is ceramic coated to make it non-stick.

Instant Pot sealing rings

Instant Pot Sealing Rings – If you use your IP a lot, the rings can hold on to smells from cooking. If you only cook curry, that might work but if you cook curry and dessert, you might not want the flavours to mingle. Instead, snag a few extra sealing rings. I like these because the different colors help you remember which you use for what foods.

egg bite molds

Egg Bite Molds– The Sous Vide egg bites at Starbucks are all the rage. You can easily make them in your Instant pot with these egg molds. They work great for a breakfast on the go!

Oxo Pressure Cooker sling

Pressure Cooker Bakeware Sling – Everyone raves about making cheesecake in the Instant Pot but how do you get that pan out? You use a bakeware sling!

Push Pan

Fat Daddio’s Push Pan – It’s like a springform pan without the buckle that makes it not fit. Perfect for making cheesecakes, lasagna and more.

steamer basket

Steamer Basket – Use it for eggs, vegetables and more. Plus it has a silicone covered handle for removal without getting burned.

stackable steamer insert pans

Stackable Steamer Pans – These are PERFECT for making lasagna and other pot in pot cooking. I want to try to make my cornbread stuffing.

egg stand

Egg Stand – Everyone swears by hardboiled eggs in the Instant Pot. This egg stand keeps everything organized and your eggs in one piece.

steam diverter

Steam Diverter – Keep the steam from your pressure release valve directed away from your cabinets with this simple device.

Silicone Lid

Silicone Lid – Want to prep the meal you will be cooking in your Instant Pot ahead of time? Add all your ingredients into your Istant Pot inner liner and use this lid to cover it and pop it in the fridge. Easy!

glass lid

IP Glass Lid – If you plan to use your Instant Pot’s slow cooker function, you’ll want a glass lid like this one.

As with anything, the accessories you will need depends on how you use your Instant Pot. However, these accessories are useful for tons of applications and will have you using your instant pot even more often!
