Best Silicone Accessories for your Instant Pot iMore 2019

So you have an Instant Pot and love cooking delicious meals quickly and easily with it, right? Yeah, we love that too. In fact, we try to use ours multiple times a week! However, what makes using the Instant Pot for everything easier are the accessories that you can get for it. We've already given you plenty of overall accessories for your Instant Pot, but what if you're looking for just silicone accessories? Don't worry! We've got you covered there, too.

Safely steam: OXO Good Grips Silicone Steamer

Staff Favorite

While most steamer baskets are stainless steel, this OXO Good Grips steamer basket is made of food-grade silicone, so it's safe to use in your Instant Pot. It's perfect for steaming vegetables, fish, or cooking eggs. There are even handles on the side (they fold in so you can close the lid) that make it super easy to lift out of the pot when it's done, and you won't have to worry about hot metal.

Keep that seal: Genuine Instant Pot Sealing Ring Clear

The most important silicone accessory is a spare sealing ring, which makes it possible for your Instant Pot to build up the pressure and keep it inside, allowing your food to cook. They do get worn out over time and may not seal after repeated use, so it's always good to get some spares.

Sweet and savory: Genuine Instant Pot Sealing Ring 2 Pack Red/Blue

If you tend to cook a lot of both savory and sweet dishes in your Instant Pot, you may have noticed that the silicone ring likes to retain odors. This 2-pack of genuine Instant Pot sealing rings come in red and blue, so you can keep one for savory dishes and the other for sweets. Doing this ensures no odors from dinner get cooked into your cheesecake.

Put a lid on it: Genuine Instant Pot Silicone Lid

This silicone lid provides an airtight seal and fits perfectly on your Instant Pot (as long as you buy the correct size). This is great for storing leftovers in the fridge directly or transporting your cooked food around to events such as potlucks or other social gatherings.

Get a grip: Genuine Instant Pot Mini Mitts

These lightweight silicone mitts fit easily on your hands and give you a good, strong grip on objects that need to be removed from the Instant Pot after cooking, like the handles on the trivet rack or the inner pot itself. We should note though that the silicone on these isn't super thick.
