Must Have Instant Pot Accessories

These are my favorite pressure cooker accessories. I find the one I use the most is the Silicone starter pack. I use it for every meal I make in the pressure cooker or outside of it.

This is the ultimate one stop shop Instant pot pack 

I use these all the time

Silicone starter pack

This is my go-to cookbook. I also love this one for my Pressure Cooker XL.

This is the pressure cooker I have.


When I make eggs I use just my pot but people swear by this egg stand
and this one with the silicon molds that they also use to make egg omelets in.

I love my steamer basket

When I am trying to do an entire meal at once I love this

Stackable Basket

and everyone needs one of these make sure you look at the size of the unit before you buy this cake pan.

Steamer basket

Non-stick Springform Bundt Pan

This is the best storage option I love my Rubbermaid containers you can microwave them and refrigerator food in them. They do not stain!
