My Rack Accessory That I Use With My Instant Pot

I am always wanting to figure out how to cook different things in my Instant Pot.

I will say I have found a few that I just don't really prefer to cook under pressure. One of those being meat loaf. While you can cook meatloaf in the instant pot the time it saves it minimal and really not worth it. It still takes 30 minutes cook time in the Instant Pot and that is not counting the 20 minutes it takes to come up to pressure. As opposed to baking it in the oven that takes 1 hour and 30 minutes but enough of that.

The point is that there are foods that when you cook them you don't want them in a lot of water and the moisture or water is necessary for the Instant Pot to build up enough steam to seal and pressurize.

With this in mind, I have been regularly checking on Amazon for some kind of rack to elevate a pot. That way I can for example cook meat in the bottom of the pot and then in an elevated bowl cook potatoes without having them be submerged in the liquid that always occurs in the bottom.

My search on Amazon produced a couple of different choices. One of them being a simple rack to elevate food or a bowl. Here it is.

I stumbled across another rack that I though would be of good use and be able to serve two purposes. This rack is a hard boiled egg rack or soft boiled egg rack which ever you fancy. It still provides elevation but it also has the spots to place eggs in for hard boil. Here is what they look like.

Needless to say I purchased the egg racks and you can see me using them for the first time when I make BBQ Chicken and Wild Rice in the Instant Pot.

The racks come in two height one is 3 inches and the shorter is 2 inches. I used the 2 inch rack when I made the BBQ Chicken and Wild Rice.

Anyway, I thought I would add that to my blog. Just in case anybody ever decides to read something I have posted.
