I joined most of America and purchased a 6 quart Instant Pot awhile back, and let me tell you what it is fantastic. If you didn’t know the Instant Pot Accessories are almost as awesome as the Instant Pot itself. I have begun falling in love with my Instant Pot like the rest of the world, and soon I am sure I will be investing in a second one for cooking multiple dishes at once.
I love being able to cook pasta so fast, or to toss in a roast to make shredded beef tacos, and it is done before I know with tender and juicy meat. Another love I have is for pasta cooked (cheesy taco pasta) in the Instant Pot. It cuts down the time greatly and you get that tender pasta that is infused with the savory flavors.

Let me share some of the top Instant Pot accessories many Instant Pot fans are finding to have great success with. From making those perfect egg bites that are taking the world by storm to steamers that make cooking your ideal broccoli a home run every single time. I have some of these items, and the rest are on my wishlist to buy soon! I want to maximize my use of the Instant Pot in all areas of cooking.

These Instant Pot egg bite pans are excellent. You might have seen the Starbucks copycat egg bites recipes out there that share how to make egg bites that are great for that protein breakfast or snack on the go.
A nice steamer is a great way to go. Whether you want a steamer basket or stackable steamers, both offer significant resources for cooking. The stackable steamers are great for cooking multiple items at once, while the basket has a lot of space for more substantial dishes you want to prepare.
If you plan to store leftovers in your Instant Pot consider a silicone lid, great to slap on and toss in the fridge to keep your leftovers right in your Instant Pot bowl.
