You buy presents for your friends and family, right? So why not buy some special treats for your Instant Pot? After all, it technically counts as a loved one! You don't need to spend a ton of money on a bunch of things (no need for special pot holders or spoons) — we just recommend these three items.
Spoil your Instant Pot a little and you'll end up spoiling yourself, too.
Once you have a hard-boiled egg from a pressure cooker, you will never want to go back to your old pot-of-boiling-water ways. (The shells come off much more easily and the egg whites are noticeably creamier.) This silicone rack holds nine eggs — up to 18, actually, if you stack two racks — perfectly steady and upright for a totally consistent cook. You can also use it as a trivet or to hold dyed Easter eggs as they dry.
2. Genuine Instant Pot Sealing Rings, $12 for two
One of the biggest complaints we hear from our Instant Pot-using readers is that the sealing rings can really hold onto some pungent food smells. While it's not a huge deal if your ring smells like garlic and you're making chili, it's probably not great for dessert. The solution? Get these rings and use a color-coded system, say, red for savory dishes and blue for sweet ones.
3. Genuine Instant Pot Stainless Steel Inner Cooking Pot, $30 for six-quart insert
Although your Instant Pot comes with a stainless steel insert, we recommend getting a second one for a couple reasons. If you have two, one can be in the dishwasher while the other one is in use, and you can use both at the same time to make two different dishes.
