Extra Sealing Rings

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!
