About a year ago I went through a period where no matter what I did I could not get my hard-boiled eggs to come outright. No matter what I tried my shells stuck to the egg and took off chunks when I tried to peel them off. A friend of mine told me to make them in the instant pot and I’ve never looked back! This Stackable 18 Egg Steamer Rack Trivet with Heat Resistant Silicone Handles is great especially if you need to make a lot of eggs at once for deviled eggs, egg salad.
If you’re worried about the steam released from your instant pot damaging your cabinets or walls this Steam Release Accessory can help solve that problem! The silicone steam pipe fits over the release valve on your instant pot and helps to redirect the steam so it won’t blow directly into the cabinets above it!
One of many awesome things about an Instant Pot is that it also doubles as a slow cooker. The only downside to that is the Instant Pot lid locks itself into place so you’re constantly having to let off steam before you can open the lid and check on what’s cooking. The same thing goes for when you’re using the sauté function. An easy and inexpensive way to fix that is by using the Instant Pot Tempered Glass Lid.
Have you ever gone to cook something in your instant pot only to spend about 15 minutes searching the internet for the correct time, liquid amount, or pressure release time? This Pressure Cooker Cook Magnetic Times Cheat Sheet has all that information and more for hundreds of foods! It’s also magnetized so it can hang on your fridge for quick reference and spiral bound so it’s easy to flip through
My Instant Vortex Air Fryer gets the almost as much use as my Instant Pot does, (if you’ve never used an air fryer before you’re seriously missing out!) At the time I bought mine this Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid wasn’t yet available, but if it was I would have opted for it over my current air fryer. Which would have saved me a ton of very limited kitchen cabinet space.
And did I mention that air frying makes the absolute best chicken wings? That fact alone makes this air fryer lid worth it!
This Instant Pot Silicone Lid fits on the top of the inner cooking pot and forms an airtight seal so you can simply store any leftovers in the fridge without having to transfer it to a different container. It’s a great way to save some time and keep your dishes to a minimum!
Did you know that you can make baked goods in your instant pot! Anything from cheesecakes, to brownies, to pumpkin pie! All you need to a pan that fits in your Instant Pot and you’re good to go.
My favorite is the Instant Pot Springform Pan. Not only can you make cheesecakes in it, but you can also make quiche, breakfast casseroles, and even lasagna! There’s also a Round Cake Pan for cakes and brownies and a Fluted Cake Pan for bundt cakes.
Have you ever had Starbucks eggs bites? They’re absolutely delicious and completely addictive.

Another great thing about making them yourself is that you can completely customize them to your family’s tastes, which comes in handy when you have picky eaters.
