    Thanks to one of those apps that inexplicably appeared on my phone and then discovered that I’m interested in InstantPot, I discovered some pretty cool gifts (for myself) under $30! Chief among them is a non-stick (ceramic-coated aluminum) inner pot, the OXO silicone pressure cooker sling (also serves as a rack, with no more one-time use of a giant piece of foil), a silicone lid for transporting and/or storing (jury’s out on that one – not sure why it’s any better than the glass slow-cooker lid, except it does seal tightly). And a pretty cool cookbook: The Instant Pot Bible. All from Amazon, of course.

      Hi, Janey! Good for you! Thanks for sharing your great finds this season. Sounds like you’ve got a few things to make life easier in the kitchen for sure :) Enjoy!

      Of course the silicone lid is not as (potentially) fragile as the glass lid – maybe good if you put the pot in the fridge. Other silicone items of interest would be those mini mitts for grabbing hot pots and maybe a silicone spoon rest.
