There are other items I like better
January 8, 2019
I bought a 8 qt Instant Pot and bought this set of accessories along with it. I am a new Instant Pot user. I have made 2 cheesecakes in the 6 inch springform pan that came with this set. It worked well but is very small. I am quite happy with this pan but have since bought an 8 inch stainless steam pan with it's own handle that I will like better for making bigger cheesecakes. The steamer basket in this set is not tall enough for my steaming purposes so far. If steaming just a small amount, it is fine. I have since bought a tall sided stainless steel steamer basket with a handle that I prefer for my steaming. I used the blue 7 compartment piece yesterday trying to make flan. I did not like it for that. It did not hold enough nor did it release the flan nicely. I put the egg holder with blue piece on it on top of the handled rack that came with my instant pot, covered it with foil, and then set my 8 cup stainless steel push up pan with handle on top of that which held 3 custard cups, covered with foil. It worked to cook them. I first tried the steamer that came with this set but it was not big enough to hold multiple custard cups. I used the tongs to pull chicken breasts out to "pull" before returning them to the instant pot; they worked great for that. I still need to try the blue piece for the egg recipes. I am not so sure I would buy this set if I knew then what I know now but it is a nice set. If I had but a 6 qt instant pot, I would probably like it better.
