It’s no secret that Instant Pots are having their 15 minutes of fame – and rightly so, since they’re beyond versatile.
I have personally all but abandoned my slow cooker in favor of the Instant Pot (IP).
With so many uses and such quick cooking time, there’s just no reason to ever go back!
Plus, since the IP has a slow cooking function, it really does do it all.
Here are a few really fabulous accessories for the Instant Pot that will really take your IP game to the next level.
Instant Pot Glass Lid
One beautiful thing about the IP is that it has so many varied uses!
Not only does it function as a pressure cooker, but it is also a slow cooker, a rice cooker, you can use it to saute veggies, brown meat, etc.
This tempered glass lid is the perfect accessory for some of the IP’s other uses.
It’s perfect as a slow cooker lid, or if you want to saute something but keep it covered to avoid splatters (I’ve definitely learned this the hard way!).
Additionally, if you’re bringing your IP to a potluck or serving directly out of the IP, the glass lid is a much nicer-looking, less bulky option than the normal pressure cooker lid.
You can pick up yours here.
Pack of 3 Silicone Sealing Rings
After using your IP for awhile, you might notice that it can be hard to get the smells out of your silicone sealing ring.
I know I’ve done everything to clean mine – soaked in hot soapy water, vinegar, and any number of detergent options.
The fact is that some things really hold onto smells, and the silicone ring is just one of those things!
Because of that, it’s a great idea to replace them every once in awhile. At the low price of under $10 for three, it’s an affordable upgrade!
You can find replacement sealing rings here!
Silicone Egg Bites Mold
Who else is a huge fan of the Starbucks egg bites?
And who else doesn’t love shelling out $4.45 each time a craving hits?
Well, now you can make your own at home – easily! – with this silicone egg bite mold.
It makes seven egg bites at a time *and* has a sealing lid for super easy fridge storage!
Hartigo Instant Pot Steamer Basket
This steamer basket is an absolute must-have IP accessory.
Not only does it work perfectly to steam your veggies, but you can also pile in eggs to make hard-boiled eggs in bulk (one of my favorite IP functions!) or easily make chicken stock without having to fish out all the bones and strain the stock over and over again.
Simply grab the basket and remove it from the IP and you’re left with your stock!
This basket has a few features that make it stand out from others on the market: first, it has silicone legs which won’t scratch your stainless steel pot insert.
Second, the handle is also silicone to ensure that you can pull it out without burning your hands!
Third, the bottom of the basket is flat instead of curved, which means it can fit an absolute ton of food!

Nonstick Springform Pan
Did y’all know that you can even make a *cheesecake* in your IP?! Yes, it’s true!
All you need is the right equipment; namely, this nonstick springform pan.
Some Amazon reviews even talk about how you can also use this to make things like lasagna and pizza in your IP!
So grab this springform pan today!
Instant Pot Silicone Lid
Sometimes, you make a giant batch of something in the IP and don’t feel like dishing it all out into a storage container just to put it in the fridge.
When that happens, this silicone lid is the perfect accessory!
It creates an air-tight seal with your IP insert that allows you to throw the entire thing in the fridge!

Snap-On IP Strainer
If you’re cooking ground beef in the IP (or pasta, or anything that needs to be strained out before continuing to cook), you can clip this little strainer on the side of the IP and easily strain out the fat – or water, or whatever!
Bonus: it also comes with two little silicone mitts that easily attach to the sides of the IP so that you can pick it up without slipping or burning yourself.

Let’s Cook Breaking Bad IP Decal
Want to liven up your IP while it sits on the counter?
How about this tongue-in-cheek “Let’s Cook” decal featuring Walter White from Breaking Bad?

She has a ton of beautiful and whimsical designs to choose from, and they’re magnetic so you can easily change them out as your mood strikes.
Dragon Steam Vent
Delight your kids by grabbing this dragon steam vent cover for your IP!
When it vents, it will look like the dragon is breathing out fire.
What could be more fun than that?!
I especially love that this is rotatable, so you can direct the steam wherever you’d like (instead of, say, always blowing on that one part of your kitchen cabinet!).
Grab this cool dragon steam vent here.
With all of these awesome accessories, the biggest question is – what will you grab first, and who’s cooking with their Instant Pot tonight?!
