These days I use a stainless steel steamer basket for most things I make with the Instant Pot.

Something like this

You should be able to get one right now at Walmart. It won't cost more than 5-10 bucks.

Why a steamer basket is better than the free trivet that comes with Instant Pot:

  • Sits a bit higher than the free trivet: allows you to catch (or use) more liquid without immersing the food in liquid
    • If it's too high for you, you can use a hack saw or file to trim the legs to the height of your liking
  • Fine mesh: allows steam to pass through just as easily, but smaller food pieces will not fall through
    • Also, you will be able to easily steam loose peas, beans, corn, etc.
  • Conforms to the pot interior better: food pieces will not fall through the gap between the pot and the basket
  • Easier to lift out food: the central handle on the steamer basket makes it easier to lift out done food, reducing the chances of spills and messes

    Basically, a steamer basket does everything the free trivet does, but better. And it lets you do things you can't do with just the free trivet. It might be one of the best value upgrades / hacks you can do for your Instant Pot.

    Edit: Sorry, somehow missed the part where you said you have a steamer. I would avoid using plastic in the IP. Suggest you get an all stainless steel one for IP usage.

I like to steam green veggies like broccoli, spinach, asparagus, green beans, etc. Get one of these things, put it in the bottom of a pot, put about 1/2 inch of water in the pot, bring water to boil, add vegetables, cook for ~5-15 minutes depending on veggie type and quantity, toss veggies halfway through, and enjoy.

I will add 1/2 tsp butter and sea salt. It doesn't take much, the vegetables are full of natural flavor. If you're cooking fresh spinach, garlic powder is a good addition.

This is a steamer trivet

But you could use a towel , aluminum foil ..basically anything the keeps it from actually sitting on the bottom of the pot ..and just enough liquid to cover it

Steam your eggs!
Of course you can buy a dedicated electric eggcooker, but it’s exactly same as steaming...

Get a steam basket, maybe like this and use it to steam your eggs. I steam for exactly six minutes, but try out your own preference!
Cold water after steaming, easy to peal!

Originally I'd have recommended a steamer. However, you can get one of these and then go with the pressure cooker. Looks like there's inserts for it to do steaming as well, so there's that also.
