Cleaning Your Instant Pot

IMG-8830

Other than cleaning the inner pot, it’s hard to know what else you need to be doing to keep your Instant Pot squeaky clean and working properly. For an exhaustive tutorial, read over this article from The Kitchn. Here are my quick tips:

Every time you use your IP:

  • Clean the inner pot in the sink or dishwasher. If the pot becomes cloudy, use vinegar to clean. Don’t use steel wool.
  • Use a small brush or thin, damp sponge to clean the crevice at the top of the unit. It often ends up with little spills or bits of dried food.
  • Wipe the inside of the lid with a damp cloth.
  • Wipe the outside of the unit as needed with a damp cloth.

Every few times you use your IP:

  • Remove the silicone ring and wash in the sink or dishwasher. If it is smelly, soak it in vinegar before cleaning again.
  • Remove the plastic piece snapped on the back that catches condensation and over-fill and clean.

Everyone once and a while:

  • Remove the gadgets in the lid and clean. See steps 6-8 for details.

Instant Pot Quinoa

Quinoa is a relatively quick-cooking grain, but the Instant Pot makes it even faster. It’s also a very hands-off, heat friendly method—I don’t turn on my stove or oven unless I have to in the hot, hot summer. The IP makes quick and easy work of healthy quinoa without heating up my kitchen. Score.

Instant Pot Quinoa

1 cup rinsed and drained quinoa (any color)
1 1/2 cups water or broth
1 teaspoon oil
1 big pinch salt

Combine all ingredients into the Instant Pot and shake the inner pot to level the quinoa and make sure it is all submerged. Secure the lid and cook at high pressure for 1 minute. Use a natural release and fluff with a fork.
