The Instant Pot is a great kitchen appliance! It’s hard to believe it’s a new “craze,” when pressure cookers have been around for a long time now. But once you have an Instant Pot, you’re going to want to have the right Instant Pot accessories to make cooking even easier!
The Instant Pot is a great new treasure in our house. So many recipes can be made quickly, like our favorite Instant Pot chicken noodle soup recipe made from frozen chicken!
Now that we have the Instant Pot, I needed to start to look at what accessories would help even more. And, these would make great holiday presents for friends who have Instant Pots. Take a look at these Instant Pot accessories.
1. If you take good care of your Instant Pot, then sealing ring replacement shouldn’t be too much of an issue. However, I like to keep some spares handy for the “just-in-case” factor. This one is part of the official Instant Pot family and comes in different sizes and colors.
2. A glass lid is perfect for turning your Instant Pot into a slow-cooker. I also use it when my Instant Pot is on its “keep warm” mode. It’s absolutely perfect for keeping dinner hot while we’re wrapping up our family activities!
3. The best part about this inner cooking pot is that it’s durable, thick, and has a no-chemical coating. If you’re using your Instant Pot often, then you’ll find having an extra cooking pot extremely beneficial.
