My Instant Pot quickly became my favorite kitchen appliance, and having the right accessories has made my cooking experiences even better.

To make cooking with your Instant Pot more enjoyable, I’ve compiled some of the best Instant Pot accessories.

When your Instant Pot is finished cooking, the inner pot is hot, hot, hot. These mini mitts are perfect for removing that inner pot and other accessories without using bulky oven mitts. Instant Pot Accessory Mini-Mitts

Sealing Rings

As you use your Instant Pot, the sealing rings tend to take on the aromas of your dishes. I recommend having at least 2 sealing rings on hand – one for your savory dishes and one for your sweets. With the color-coded rings, it is easy to distinguish between the two. Or, you can opt for the clear rings like the one that came with your pot. They are available for the 6 Quart and 8 Quart models.
