By now, you’ve probably guessed that I love my Instant Pot! It has been a game changer for my cooking. It has allowed me to make meals that I would never make at a moment’s notice otherwise. I’ve been able to recreate some of my mom’s recipes that I was always afraid to try because of the time and effort involved in them, like Arroz con Leche and Hawaiian Chicken. It is much easier now to make a home cooked, hearty meal when I don’t have a lot of time. I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you!

THE INSTANT POT
Well, the first, and most important item you will need is an Instant Pot. So, if you don't already have one, now is the time to get one. And, if you do already have one, then the only thing better than having one Instant Pot is having two (or more). There are many models of Instant Pots available, but these are my favorites.Enter your text here...
8-Quart Instant Pot Duo Plus
By far my favorite Instant Pot! The 8-quart Duo is perfect for my large family. The nice thing is, you can cook as little or as much as you want. From a meal for one to a large meal for entertaining, this one can do it all. If you have a big family, then you need this pot!
Instant Pot Ultra
The 6-quart Duo Ultra is the souped up version of the regular 6-quart Duo. It has some extra buttons and a cleaner more modern display that includes a dial instead of buttons. The pressure release on the lid has also been improved on. Perfect if you like having all the bells & whistles
MUST-HAVE INSTANT POT ACCESSORIES
I have come up with a list of my 20 favorite Instant Pot accessories. Some of these, you may already have in your kitchen, or you may have something that would work just as well. So let’s get right to it and look at my favorite accessories for my Instant Pot!
I own these stackable pans and they are great! They are very sturdy and fit nicely in my 8-quart, and will also fit the 6-quart. They are perfect for cooking two items at once that you don't want touching each other. I love using them for making a double batch of my flan. Two pans are always better than one!
Greek Yogurt Maker
This yogurt maker is perfect for straining your yogurt after you make it in the Instant Pot. After you have drained your yogurt to the consistency you like, you can keep the whey in the container in the fridge. Great quality product. I own it and love it. Making yogurt has never been so easy!
3-Cup Bundt Pan
This cute little bundt pan is perfect for making a small dessert in the Instant Pot. I own the 6 cup version of this and will be ordering a 3 cup as well. This size bundt pan is ideal for making any of my mini cakes, including my delicious Lemon Mini Bundt.
I do not own this steamer basket yet, but it's in my shopping cart. Lots of my readers have ordered it and love it. It's perfect for steaming large quantities of veggies like corn, broccoli or cauliflower. It comes in different sizes to fit any of your pots. Start steaming tons of veggies!
I love my mini mitts!! They are Instant Pot brand, and they are so helpful when taking stuff out of the Instant Pot. I especially use them when I’m taking out the small ramekins I use to make my Turtle Lava Cakes. These have to be the most handy pair of mitts that I have in my kitchen.
Colored Sealing Rings
I’m so glad that Instant Pot came out with these colored rings. They are perfect for changing them out between sweet and savory meals. This way I can make my Arroz con Leche and know that it won’t taste like Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork! These rings really are handy to have.
I love making eggs in my Instant Pot. These racks are perfect for that. They stack one on top of each other and allow me to make lots of eggs at once. You can also use them as regular racks.
I love this lid for big meals we cook ahead of time and leftovers. When we have leftovers, which doesn’t happen too often in my home, it makes it very easy to store in the refrigerator without having to transfer it to another dish and thus increasing my dirty dishes pile.
These oven mitts are perfect for handling the liner of the Instant Pot. I love that they are a high quality product, but at the same time, they are cute as can be! I also love the fact that they come in two sizes. I have small hands, so the Small sized ones fit me perfectly!
This flan pan is amazing! I got it when I was perfecting my flan recipe and I can't tell you what a difference it made! The flan slides right out, and there's minimal caramel "stickage". By far, out of all the pans I used to make flan, this was the best performer! The lid on it is an awesome bonus!
Inner Cooking Pot
This is the next best thing to having two Instant Pots! You don't know how many times I've wanted to immediately start another dish in the pot, but couldn't because I had to clean up the liner, and the sink was already full of dishes. This would definitely solve the problem!
