If you, like a lot of other people, recently acquired an Instant Pot, you’re probably discovering many of its finer points already. Quick dinners, holiday cooking, and more have you enjoying your new kitchen friend. But all that use means your Instant Pot might be taking a beating and getting downright dirty. Sure, you can put the interior pot in the dishwasher. But what about the rest of it? Here’s how to deep clean your Instant Pot.
1. Everyday Upkeep
For everyday upkeep, your interior pot is dishwasher safe, so that part is easy. Aside from that, you can use a damp cloth to wipe down the outside (and even the inside) of the cooker itself. On the outside, a little 50-50 vinegar-water solution will shine it right up and remove any fingerprints. As for the lid, you should remove the sealing ring after every use and wipe it down. Then wipe down the underside of your lid with a damp cloth.
