Does your Instant Pot have a slight smell despite being cleaned? Does it seem to take longer and longer for your Instant Pot to seal? If either of those things is true, you may need to invest in a new Instant Pot sealing ring.
Made with the highest quality silicone, this sealing ring is extremely important to the safety of your Instant Pot as well as the taste of your food. A cracked or broken ring will result in your Instant Pot not sealing which can be dangerous when the machine is trying to create pressure.
The sealing ring also has a tendency to absorb smells which means, if you make beef stew in your Instant Pot one day and then want to make yogurt the next, you may end up with yogurt that smells like beef stew- not good! A new, clean Instant Pot ring is the perfect solution to this problem.
The Instant Pot ring will fit both the 5qt and the 6qt Instant Pot and is dishwasher safe making it very easy to clean.
As part of the Instant Pots safety mechanisms and a direct component in how your food tastes, it is a good idea to have several sealing rings on hand.
Use one for savory foods and one for sweet. Then, also have a few extra as backups in case one happens to break- you don't want dinner plans to be ruined from a broken sealing ring!
This simple part is essential to your Instant Pot recipes and is something you should definitely invest in.
Grab a few and then you’ll never have to worry again!
