Since the Instant Pot is so versatile, it makes sense there is a wide range of accessories available to help you in prepping that perfect meal.
Here’s a roundup of Instant Pot Accessories Canada, including name-brand from Instant, and some accessories from other companies.
If you don’t already have an Instant Pot, you won’t need accessories yet! Check out our comparison of all the different models of Instant Pot Canada
Remember, you don’t need any of these Instant Pot Accessories, Canada, to cook successfully in your Instant Pot. They do help you expand your recipe options and cooking versatility.
The official Instant Pot Air Fryer lid that turns any existing 6 quart instant pot into an air fryer. One-touch presets allow you to get cooking fast, with up to 95% less oil than deep frying.
When you buy the Air Fryer lid, you also get some Instant Pot Accessories including a protective storage cover, a multi-level air fryer basket, and a broil/dehydrate tray.
The 6-in-1 accessory uses 1500W of power to allow you to air fry, broil, bake, roast, reheat, or dehydrate foods in your Instant Pot.

No list of Instant Pot Accessories Canada would be complete without replacement sealing rings. Sure, it's more of a replacement part than an accessory, but it's just as important!
BPA and dishwasher safe, these genuine silicon sealing rings are a great replacement when yours is worn out.
Or, if you cook a wide variety of foods (think garlic/onion chili and cheesecake), you may want to use one ring for salty foods and one for sweet. In that case, consider the red/blue sealing rings instead of just the clear rings to help you keep them apart.
The sealing ring is an important part of the Instant Pot safety mechanisms, so steer clear of third-party options and look for the genuine ones from Instant Brands.

If you find yourself wanting to leave leftovers in the Instant Pot for easy reheating, you've probably encountered a time when you wished you had a second inner pot to make a new dish.
Or, if you're the type to cook large batches of food and freeze them for later, you might want to make 2 pot fulls of your favorite recipe at once.
Now you can buy a second inner pot made of 18/8 food grade stainless steel with no coatings. Available in 6-quart, 8-quart, and even mini 3-quart sizes.

A second inner pot can be very convenient, and while we would typically steer clear of non-stick and opt for stainless steel, there could be some good reasons to use this Instant Pot Accessory.
If you find yourself making some delicate recipes in your Instant Pot (like cheesecakes or souffles), you may want to opt for a non-stick pot rather than a second stainless steel inner pot.
It's made with a non-stick ceramic coating that is plastic PTFE and PFOA free.
Available in 3, 6, and 8-quart sizes.

A tempered glass lid can be used on the Instant Pot while slow cooking so you can keep an eye on progress. And, you can use it to cover your leftovers while you store them in the fridge.
One of our pot lids from our kitchen cookware set fits our Instant Pot, so we didn't need to buy one of these.
Sizes available for Instant Pot 8 quart, 6 quart, and 3 quart mini versions.

Third Part Instant Pot Accessories Canada
There are some accessories that you can’t get straight from Instant, so it makes sense that third party companies have created products to make the Instant Pot even better.
Just make sure that the accessories from other companies are not part of the safety of the Instant Pot. Instant spent lots of time testing and developing, and getting their pressure cooker cUL approved (safety approved for sale in Canada).
For the sake of safety – If you’re looking for a silicone sealing ring, a replacement pressure valve, or other integral parts, make sure they are genuine accessories.
