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. This option has a food-safe silicone handle that folds down so you can seal your pot.
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. 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. 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).
If you use your Instant Pot regularly, you may want to grab yourself an extra insert to use while your other is in the dishwasher. Just be sure to grab the correct size for your Instant Pot model!
Since the Instant Pot is so deep, be sure to invest in a nice, long pair of tongs. This will help you remove your meals safely.
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 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!
