What type of lid was it that shattered? The normal IP lid should not do this, so absolutely do not buy a whole new machine.

Genuine Instant Pot Tempered Glass Lid, 9 in. (23 cm), 6 Quart, Clear

u/filchermcurr · 18 pointsr/instantpot

Here's what I personally use: - Extra sealing ring to use when you make sweet things to avoid transferring any smelly savoryness from the other ring. - Steaming basket, of course. - A 7" springform pan to make Cheesecake #17 in. (If you only get one thing, this is the one. Because cheesecake.) - Tempered glass lid for slow cooking and/or letting people peer into the pot in awe while food is being kept warm.

And if you just want to buy fun things, the mini mitts are nice for getting the cheesecake out right away: And not catching on fire when you want to remove the inner pot or hold it in place while you saute.

I also bought these stackable pans the other day ( but so far all I've used them for was a dual meatloaf. I like them but I can't really think of a lot of uses for them at the moment.

As a fellow cast iron pan fan (heh), Amazon has them!

I prefer silicone cup covers. Super cheap, no straw for things to fly into, and looks a lot better.

u/AllMyKaleIsDull · 5 pointsr/instantpot

Any of the lid accessories are must-buy in my opinion.

A glass lid for slow cooking, and also works great to keep food warm and moist inside the pot after it is done cooking; great for buffet style.

A silicone lid seals the inner-pot and is great for putting it right into the fridge after cooking, rather than transferring into a Tupperware.

u/Yotoberry · 5 pointsr/Coffee

You can get silicone covers which stretch to fit over a variety of containers, including those with a spout. That would probably be your best bet.

VARGO Bot is the obvious answer but very expensive. Other options are to get a cross band but you might not be able to cold soak. I've read on reddit that someone used stretchy silicone lids for cold soaking, but I've never used these myself.

u/DStoo · 5 pointsr/BuyItForLife

You HAVE to get a set of these (They make other designs). They're amazing and really do work. Plop it on a pyrex and it seals toss it in the microwave without having to worry about stuff exploding everywhere.

u/anessa_vay · 5 pointsr/moderatelygranolamoms

I've never used beeswax wraps but silicone lids are also a reusable option to replace plastic wrap. These are not the ones I have but they're the same idea. There are tons of choices online though.

u/Kari-kateora · 3 pointsr/GiftIdeas

This is a really good one. Another idea which is in a similar vibe is those silicone mug/bowl covers. They're made of silicone and sort of suction down onto your cup or bowl to keep the contents inside warm. They're not all airtight, so not intended to keep things contained for travel, but it's nice for keeping your coffee warm as you drink it slowly.

Amazon link for an example.

> That, combined with the stainless steel inner pot (vs. non-stick coating) are what sealed the deal for me.

u/5hakehar · 3 pointsr/lifehacks

It's a generic pan lid. Professional kitchens usually have it, probably the intended audience for this class.

u/evejen · 3 pointsr/ZeroWaste

I use my wax wrap for dry things like covering bowls that don’t have a lid. For covering fruit and bowls as well, I love using my reusable silicone covers! As long as you don’t overstretch them, they can be used for a long time and cleaned easily.Here is a link to one from Amazon! :)

u/SilenceSeven · 3 pointsr/castiron

A Lodge lid for the 12" skillet Or keep an eye out for lids that size at thrift stores. They always have a ton of lids.

u/poppy-fields · 3 pointsr/ZeroWaste

You could try some of those silicone jar covers off amazon. You just stretch them over like you would plastic wrap. Example

u/allomanticpush · 3 pointsr/castiron

You should pick up one of these, too!

u/itskatastrophic · 2 pointsr/funny

In case anyone else wants to order for their microwave salad! I ordered 5, one for each workday.

u/GMkOz2MkLbs2MkPain · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

While it doesn't receive much love on this subreddit there is the Vargo Bot 700 intended for taking the place of a pot and cold soaking container. There have been some complaints about keeping the rolled lip of the lid clean over the length of a thru hike. I've been looking at modifying mine (removing the rolled lip would likely make it structurally weaker but lighter and easier to keep clean). A much cheaper and likely lighter option that requires some more fiddling that has been discussed on this subreddit a few different times is the [Poor Man's Vargo Bot] ( That is one of a few posts if you search the subreddit. These lids off amazon have been suggested and I've been meaning to get and try a set but have yet to do so.

u/Weird_With_A_Beard · 2 pointsr/castiron

An added bonus is the lid also perfectly fits the Lodge 8" skillet.

u/p0tent1al · 2 pointsr/castiron

Nice. I think some research + this post inspired me. I bought this exact same item, along with the 12" lid.

u/camobit · 2 pointsr/instantpot

there is the glass lid to allow for non pressure cooking that wouldn't involve the seal. obviously you wouldn't get the benefits of pressure cooking but it can make your IP more flexible for other tasks.

u/DanniAnna · 2 pointsr/Ultralight

Use these i-Kawachi Silicone Stretch Lids, 6-Pack of Various Sizes on your existing mug-pot. Theyre really really really sticky secure and leakproof. Its a bit annoying to buy the whole set for just the one lid but the others will all be useful in the kitchen.

u/BigTruckBoi · 2 pointsr/shroomers

This is what my personal lid tek looks like. I drill 3 holes, put one of these in the center as a self healing inoculation port and I put 2 layers of micropore tape on the inside of the lid and the outside. The slight discoloration is from the pressure cooking. After I inoculate the jars, I remove the top 2 layers of micropore tape from one side to increase FAE. If the jars seem to be going slow, I take the top 2 layers off the other one too.

u/shiny_loo · 2 pointsr/weddingplanning

Sorry, I was on a phone and couldn't link to it! YES! I went through some list of kickstarter products on Amazon. I also added the ORBLUE Silicone Stretch Lids and NO ODOR Dish Cloth for All Purpose Dish Washing.

u/cookiemookie20 · 2 pointsr/sousvide

Nevermind - I just zoomed in on your pic and researched the name on top. Really cool!

Cellar Made Easy-Open Sous Vide Lid for Anova Cookers use with 12, 18 or 22 Quart Rubbermaid Containers

u/BostonBestEats · 2 pointsr/sousvide

I have a couple of the Cellar Made Easy-Open Sous Vide Lids for the 12 Qt Rubbermaid and sized for a Joule. They are a tight fit on the container, but generally work well. I presume the 22 Qt for Anovas would be fine too. Never understood the point of those hinged lid setups, since they just interfere with complete access to the container.

u/GhostOfTheNet · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A cast-iron lid for cooking or cooking utensils! Thank you for the contest!

u/Gracksploitation · 2 pointsr/soylent

I don't mix my own but here's what I'd do:

  • I'd buy the biggest food-grade buckets I can find.
  • Mix the ingredients directly in the buckets, leaving enough room to mix them vigorously.
  • Every time I run out of bags: open up a bucket, fill each bag over a scale with a nice shovel.
  • Consider an airtight lid because moisture is your enemy.

    That's more or less how Joeylent (now JimmyJoy) started.
u/KittenPurrs · 2 pointsr/educationalgifs

Someone up-thread said it's a universal pan lid. This one is boujee but it shows the style used in the vid.

I bet a baking/cookie sheet would work well too.

u/SweetBearCub · 2 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

Most models also have the 'Saute' function, which can sear meats, cook down vegetables, reductions, etc, and move it all over to the slow cook or pressure cook phase, with no loss. Just de-glaze the pan with some liquid after using the saute mode.

Slow cook works fine. There is a clear slow cooker type of lid available as an accessory. I highly recommend that you use it, itmay help overcooking a slow cooker meal.

u/msangeld · 1 pointr/instantpot

I had never used a pressure cooker before, but when I made the decision to get one, I decided I was getting everything I thought I might need, so I bought the 6 qt ultra, an accessory kit, glass lid and a cookbook.

I've fallen in love with this thing. The first thing I made was hard boiled eggs for deviled eggs. We've also made barbecue chicken wings, rice, chili, and popcorn.

u/AlarmClock314 · 1 pointr/castiron

I'm still looking for a glass lid to fit my Field #10. Was hoping a Staub (like this/this) would fit, but I haven't measured it yet. They have several sizes.

u/emanmodnara · 1 pointr/sousvide

I use the 12 quart with this lid -

It is a good size, but I have two teenage sons, so we are always cooking a large quantity of food.

u/chatnoirrrr · 1 pointr/ZeroWaste

I use these silicone sunflower covers. They come in different sizes. Their main use is for covering bowls for fridge storage but they work great for the microwave too.

Charles Viancin Sunflower Lid - Large 11"

Doesn’t solve for reheating flat plates though.

u/WeAreTheMassacre · 1 pointr/MealPrepSunday

These stainless steel dipping sauce containers with lids would be your friend. Shame they're kinda big for putting in most meal prep containers. Definitely could fit one in there like I do for my salad dressings.

I'm also not sure how well guac would stay fresh in them... Still never tried the lime trick.

u/jackruby83 · 1 pointr/sousvide

I was looking into getting that container... the lid is like $8, but someone wants to charge $25 for a precut one! Ridiculous when you can do it yourself!

u/a-la-brasa · 1 pointr/Cooking

Not that your solution doesn't work, but Le Creuset also does sell metal replacement knobs that are meant for their dutch ovens.

u/demonicpeppermint · 1 pointr/blogsnark

I was worried about my plastic knob on my dutch oven, so I bought a Le Creuset metal replacement knob (linked below, no affiliate, I promise!). Don't despair if you're a grocery store person like I am without a Le Creuset, because it's a standard size knob. Maybe that would be helpful for you?

u/shinty_six · 1 pointr/MushroomGrowers

If you don't want to use RTV, you can also buy SHIPs on Amazon relatively cheap.

Just find the right size for the holes you intend to make.

u/kaidomac · 1 pointr/instantpot

FYI they sell a glass lid for the Instant Pot:

u/SEJeff · 1 pointr/sousvide

I use a Rubbermaid tub with a custom fitted lid for a Joule to prevent any evaporation. You can find several for the Anova that is like this:

Cellar Made Easy-Open Sous Vide Lid for Anova Cookers use with 12, 18 or 22 Quart Rubbermaid Containers

Alternatively if you use pots I hear good things about ping pong balls or “Sous Vide balls” as some people call them on amazon.

I’m not sure about eating it tonight. Your call :/

u/becausenooneeverhas · 1 pointr/instantpot

How nice of you to research your gift. Your choice will depend largely upon how many people she usually cooks for.

I have the 8 quart Ultra (I usually feed 9-10 people) and don't regret it at all. This is the only version with the knob and I love how easy and intuitive it is.

On Amazon, if you click on an Instant Pot and scroll down, there are charts comparing them. Like here.

I regularly use the glass lid you have to purchase separately. There are other gadgets you can get for it, like stackable pots and extra sealing rings (because yours will eventually smell bad), among other things.

You can just type in "Instant Pot Accessories" on Amazon and see what is available.

u/JunahCg · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I can't personally vouch for them at all, but the phrase "silicone stretch lids" turns up things like this. They look like they could help replace a few iffy lids, but who knows how they last.

u/96dpi · 1 pointr/Cooking

It's really a no-brainer, this is the way to go

I've had mine since 2013, which is like newborn age in cast iron years.

They're usually around $20 USD, so it may be slightly cheaper at a store. If that seems suspiciously cheap, it's not, that's normal for these.

If you want to be a little extra for your BF, get him the matching lid, these little scrapers, and this chainmail scrubby.

u/tsdguy · 1 pointr/Cooking

I use a round pizza sheet pan. Universal.

I do have an All Clad universal lid which I got cheap but I’ve not used it yet.

u/autumnelaine · 1 pointr/ThriftStoreHauls

I have these and also have some that I got at either tjmaxx or homegoods that don’t have a brand on them.
