The Ultimate Must-Haves Guide To

In​stant Pot Accessories

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.

Silicone Lid

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.

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!
