Essential Pressure Cooking Accessories

There are pressure cooking accessories I use often enough that I consider them essential to pressure cooking.

Chocolate Pots de Crème

Most pressure cookers come with a rack/trivet. You’ll use a rack often when you’re cooking things you don’t want sitting on the bottom of the pressure cooking pot, such as cheesecake!

If you want to try your had at my Chocolate Pots de Crème pictured above, you’ll need an additional rack. I’m also loving my 7 Inch Pizza Screen for double stack things like mini cheesecakes and creme brulee.

 Fagor steamer basket

 

Next, I recommend buying a steamer to keep the food up out of the water and to easily remove them from the pressure cooking pot. My favorite is the OXO Good Grips Stainless Steel Steamer. This Fagor basket is also great.

The potatoes pictured above are cut for my popular Quick Pressure Cooker Potato Salad recipe. You cook the eggs and the potatoes at the same type. It’s so quick and easy, you’ll fall in love with potato salad all over again.

Instant Pot Silicone Gasket

You’ll want to have an extra silicone ring. The silicone gasket absorbs odors and if you want to cook something like cheesecake, it’s nice to keep an odor free gasket on hand.

It’s also nice to have in case the gasket gets damaged – it’s rare when it’s new, but there’s been stories on Facebook about dogs, lids left on stoves.

Two other must haves are a sling, and an instant read thermometer.

Cranberry French Toast

Specialty Items

These gift recommendations are not necessities, but they sure are fun.

I’m crazy about this 7-Inch x 3-Inch Round Cake Pan, pictured above with my Cranberry French Toast.

It’s also a great pan for cooking stack meals. Trying cooking Honey Sesame Chicken on the bottom and white rice on the top in the cake pan.

I like to use a taller rack for stacked meals. And lately I’ve been using these Retriever Tongs a lot to get my cake pan out of the pressure cooker.

6 Cup Bundt Pan. for making Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bundt CakeSteamed Carrot Pudding Cake, and even Stuffing in the Pressure Cooker.

I use my Pyrex 6-Ounce Custard Cups to make FlanCreme Brulee, and Egg Muffins in the Pressure Cooker.

An immersion blender makes blending soups a breeze right in the pressure cooking pot.

What about a second pressure cooker?

The Instant Pot Mini is a fun 3 quart pressure cooker that is perfect as a second pressure cooker for side dishes. Or, it would make a great gift for singles, couples or a college student.

Or, if you’ve been wanting a pressure cooker with a larger capacity. You can’t go wrong with the 8 quart Fagor or 8 quart Instant Pot.

Fun accessories for your pressure cooker

It’s been so fun to watch people fall in love with pressure cooking as much as I have. The Instant Pot Facebook Community group members really have fun with it. After seeing their electric pressure cooker covers, I couldn’t resist having Cindy custom make one for me.

They’re also having fun with decals for the pressure cooker. I decided on a magic wand decal because the pressure cooker doesn’t really cook in an instant, but it still seems pretty magical to me.

Renee from, Kudos Kitchen, sent me a custom made, hand painted apron that you could customize however you like and would make a great gift.

Another gadget recommended in the IP Facebook group is a meat chopper for making quick work of breaking apart ground beef when browning it in the pressure cooker.

The newest fun idea is using Baby Food Storage Containers to make little egg muffins and lava cakes. I’ve ordered one and hope to try it soon,

That’s just a few of the new gadgets I’ve added to my collection this year, if you still want more ideas, check out my How to Get a Pan Out of the Pressure Cooker post, and my  Best Pressure Cooker Accessories post
