Own an Instant Pot pressure cooker?

If the answer is yes, then you may want to check out these six popular accessories that work well with Instant Pot pressure cookers! Some of them you may even already have in your kitchen.

I’ve had my 6 Quart 7 in 1 Instant Pot for over a year now and am enjoying learning to cook with it. Here are a few popular Instant Pot accessories I’ve found to be helpful.

1.) Instant Pot Silicone Sealing Rings

If you’ll be cooking both sweet and savory dishes, consider having extra sealing rings on hand to prevent flavors and smells from transferring. They fit easily underneath your Instant Pot‘s lid, and can help make sure your dessert won’t taste or smell like garlic!  Just designate one sweet and one savory, and swap them out accordingly.

2.) Stainless Steal Steamer Basket

Check to see if you already own a steamer basket that’ll fit inside your Instant Pot. If not, this expandable steamer basket works great with the Instant Pot and folds down for easy storing afterwards. It works nicely for steaming fresh veggies, and making hard-boiled eggs.

3.) Instant Pot Mini Mitts

These small waterproof pinch mitts make it easy to grab the lip of the Instant Pot inner pot to easily pull it out after cooking. They can of course also work for grabbing lightweight baking sheets from the oven.

4.) Instant Pot Tempered Glass Lid- 6 quart

Having a glass see-through lid opens up the functionality of the Instant Pot by allowing you to see your food while cooking when NOT using the pressure cooking function, such as when slow cooking and sauteing. I like using the glass lid after pressure cooking to keep food warm for serving instead of the heavy pressure cooking lid. Also, available for the 8 quart size here.

5.) Spring Form Pan for Instant Pot Cheesecake

One of the advantages of Instant Pot Pressure cooking is the diverse meals and dishes you’re able to cook with it.  Cheesecake is a popular dessert discussed often on the Instant Pot Facebook group, and THIS Instant Pot Cheesecake recipe seems to be extremely popular.

If you don’t own one already, this 7 inch Non-Stick Spring Form Pan fits perfectly inside the Instant Pot. You can also use it to make lasagna and meatloaf right in your Instant Pot!

6.) Handheld Immersion Blender 

No need to transfer food to a blender if you have a handheld one! I like using my Cuisinart Smart Stick to conveniently make soup in the Instant Pot. Check out this recipe for yummy Homemade Baked Potato Soup!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
