I’m here to say, YES! The Instant Pot makes a huge difference in cooking time and really does make life easier. And I admit, we pot heads tend to get a bit crazy about our Instant Pots.

#1 The Instant Pot!
You just have to have one! Once you use the Instant Pot there is no going back. The basic Instant Pot is a 6 quart, which is ideal for most family’s needs.

Finally, there is an 8 quart IP Pressure cooker, which is best for those with large families or who want to feed a crowd.

#2 Round Cheesecake Pan with Removable Bottom
When you become an Instant Pot fan, it doesn’t take long to discover people are obsessed with Instant Pot cheesecakes. They taste amazing and are simply fun to create. You’ll need a pan that fits in your Instant Pot.
This little gem is great for making cheesecakes and specialty desserts. It heats up quickly and cools down quickly.
#3 Steamer Basket
This steamer basket is great for vegetables and fits nicely in your Instant Pot. This steamer basket is unique, compact, collapsible design for space saving storage. Vegetables don’t take long at ALL in the IP so make sure you read up on how to do that right. (The first time, I way over cooked mine.)
#4 Silicone Egg Poacher Cups
The Instant Pot makes awesome poached eggs. BPA free poaching pods for the perfect poached egg. They are FDA approved and 100% non stick. You can even put them in the dishwasher.
#5 Steamer Basket with Lid
This 2-Tier Steamer Cooker fits nicely into the Instant Pot. It is great for steaming vegetables, fish, rice and more. People who have one of these towers say it’s a game changer for Instant Pot cooking, since you can make a variety of items at once.
#6 Stainless Steel Scrubber
This steel scrubber will help you scrub any residue with warm water which will release quickly and easily. This is great for cleaning the inside of the Instant Pot, which at times can get stuff stuck on the bottom that doesn’t easily come off.
#7 Glass Mixing Bowl
This bowl is extremely sturdy and versatile and great if you are needing a PIP aka “pot in a pot”. If you need to keep food out of the water in the bottom of the pot, this is an excellent accessory to have. People even bake cakes in this bowl!
#8 BPA free Instant Pot Silicone Sealing Rings and Steamer Basket
This value bundle has a variety of items that are helpful for Instant Pot cooking. The steamer basket fit most Instant Pot sizes. These are dishwasher safe and a great addition to your Instant Pot accessory collection. The rings are helpful because the IP does tend to absorb odors that can be tough to get rid of. (IP hint – hang your ring outside in the sunshine for a few hours to remove odors.) Having extra rings is helpful. Some people use one for savory items and the other for sweets.
#9 Instant Pot Glass Lid
We love the glass lid so we can keep an eye on the cooking, especially for sautéing! This is definitely top on the list of must haves.
#10 Instant Pot Trivet
This trivet does more than cook eggs, which we love! You can use this as a cooling rack, pot stand plus egg cooker, cooking ribs and roasts, and more.
