I purchased this product because it was reasonably priced and the reviews all stated that it fit the Instant Pot perfectly and worked the same as the original product from Instant Pot. When they arrived I noticed that they look identical to the one that came with my pot but felt a little bit more gel rubbery than the original. The only negative that I noticed was that this silicone ring was a bit difficult to properly put into the lid, it seems the flappy part (I'm sorry, I don't know how else to describe it!) that flap around the bottom that you tuck in seems to fold over as you are tucking it in and it takes a little more effort to install. That said, I still give this a 4 Star because it works just like the original, and the price is much more reasonable.

It is nice to have a spare on hand and for my niece who also has this ring - she uses one for meats and veggies and one for desserts so that she doesn't have to deal with a garlic odor when she is making cheesecake! Great idea. I really like this and will certainly recommend and buy again.

So far these have worked great for our 6qt. 7 mode Instant Pot! We've been experimenting with a wide variety of foods, so we wanted to have extra seals around to use with different flavors. These work perfectly! They fit just the same as the original seals. They seem just as durable. I'll follow up in a couple months and update my review if we find out how long they last in comparison to the original seal.
As far as my wife and I can see now, they're totally worth the money! Great deal!

Oh, we also noticed that if you soak the seal in baking soda and water, it gets rid of most if not all of the smells that remain from what you were cooking. Even heavily spiced foods like curry seem to completely dissappear after a good soak.

Only have used one of the rings for a few days with my IP cooker ---- but it seems comparable to the original sealing ring that came with the pressure cooker. Noticed that in both cases, the rings can be a bit "temperamental' --- meaning that if not seated perfectly on the lid, they will not allow pressure to build. If these sealing rings prove durable, I'll purchase again; as the price is reasonable, compared to the Instant Pot's version. So far, fairly happy with these.

Update: (4-3-17 ) After using this "Instant Perrrt Silicone Ring" for a few weeks, have noticed that this product sags much more than the original silicone ring. Which means, that with each use, must manually adjust the ring back onto the pressure cookers' lid. I've changed back to the original ring now, and will only use this product as an 'emergency spare'.

I received a message from the owner of the business to use a seal for savory dishes and one for sweet dishes. This made sense since I made a lamb stew then poached pears and the pears had an onion taste though I thought I cleaned the pot and seal well. So now I will use different seals for sweet and savory. I appreciated the tip!

Never had a problem with my Instant Pot coming up to pressure until I replaced my authentic Instant Pot seals with this one. Almost every other time I try to use my Instant Pot, I am waiting for it to come up to pressure, for what seems like a much longer time than it used to take, only to have the error, NoPr, (no pressure), flash at me. When I take the lid off, the stupid seal is dangling off of the lid, because it just doesn't fit tight enough!
One time I tried to steam some vegetables, which I have done dozens of times, so I know exactly how long it takes, and how much water to use. It took almost 3 times as long to try to come up to pressure, only it never did, and then it ran out of water, scorched the bottom of the pot, and tossed out an OvHT, overheat error, at me. Because the pot tried for so long to come up to pressure, but never quite got there, the vegetables sat for way too long, probably at 'almost full' pressure, and were completely ruined mush by the time I realized something was wrong and the error code came up. I am throwing out the other seal in the 2-pack, it just isn't worth my wasted time and ruined recipes!

Like many, the appeal of a less expensive silicone ring had snared me- especially when I could buy two in one pack. However when it finally became time to change over to my new rings I was irritated to discover that neither of them sealed well. The seal is loose and it will not allow the instant pot to function. Thankfully my instant pot is already out of warranty so I don't need to worry about voiding it, but just do yourself a favor and buy a sealing ring or two from the Instant Pot company.

If you own an Instant Pot -- these are the PERFECT replacement for the seal rings. They are exactly the same that comes with the IP. Since they easily absorb smells, I am keeping these separate in Ziplocs to use making non-savory dishes like yogurt and cheesecakes. After using, I just toss in the dishwasher to clean and remove smells they may have absorbed during cooking.

Edit: Instant Pot has recently announced on their Facebook page that these rings are not certified for use as replacement rings. Personally, I have been using these rings now for months:

1) I can't tell them apart from the original silicone ring (other than smell and discoloration).
2) I have had absolutely no problems sealing or using these rings with my Instant Pot.

I own 2 Instant Pots which I use daily. I personally will continue to purchase these rings as replacements silicone rings.

This silicone sealing ring worked exactly as the IP original! Easy in, easy out, sealed perfectly. Soup came out great! Now I just have to remember this is my savory ring. The other will be sweet, and my original will remain for staining food like tomato based sauces such as pasta and chili.Thanks so much for a reasonably priced solution.

these worked great the first few times then my instant pot refused to seal. I took out the seal and used the 2nd in the package and it sealed right away. Do not waste you money and make sure you purchase the instant pot brand seals!!!

update: instant perrrt has refunded my money and offered to replace these for free.

I've only had my Instant Pot for about six weeks, but the original seal it came with picked up the scent of the first thing I made in it -- a chili -- and wouldn't go away, even after soaking it in vinegar. I decided to get these seals, and am happy I did.

As this company and other reviewers have recommended, use one of these for sweet foods and one for savory. I also store mine in separate Ziplock bags, with "Sweet" written on one with a Sharpie pen and "Savory" written on the other. (Be sure, of course, that the rings are fully dry before placing them in the bags.)

They work just as well as the original sealing ring that came with my IP, and, in fact, I can't tell the difference between them.
