The sealing ring, while not the most exciting part of the Instant Pot, plays an essential role in its function. It seals in pressure, ensuring a safe, and successful pressure build.

But if you're familiar with the Instant Pot you already know that the sealing ring can hold on to odors (here's how to clean them to reduce odor). This multi-pack of sealing rings from Instant Pot allows you to designate a ring for different types of food, say sweet or savory.

One of my favorite uses for the Instant Pot is making hard-boiled eggs. The shells practically fall off when you go to the peel them. But sometimes you'll crack an egg or two as they roll around in the inner pot or on the trivet.

This stackable trivet is specially designed to hold eggs in place as they steam. It also gives you the ability to cook up to 18 large eggs in one six-quart Instant Pot.
