10 Must-Have Instant Pot Accessories

The Instant Pot is the ultimate kitchen multitasker, but did you know that your pressure cooker can do even more? With these Instant Pot accessories on Amazon, you can make practically anything.

Multitasking steamer basket and strainer

Stainless Steel Strainer

If you’re looking to steam veggies, make hard-boiled eggs, or even cook up a 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.

Extra sealing rings

3 Pack Silicone Sealing Ring

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 and one for sweet, plus a bonus one is a great place to start! But first, find out the things you should never make in an Instant Pot.

Spare pots
