Different Ways to Store Your Instant Pot

It might sound like there is no one way to store your instant pot, which is absolutely true. People tend to store their instant pot in a variety of ways that seem convenient to them to best work with their kitchen space.

These are a few things that you do need for Instant Pot storage:

  • Instant Pot Lid Holder
  • Instant Pot Stand
  • Instant Pot Carrier Case

An Instant Pot ring is nice to have, although not necessary. Also, specific Instant Pot rest to use while you’re prepping meals is handy, but also takes up storage space when not in use. Again, nice to have, but not necessary.

Instant Pot Lid Holder

If you’re looking for a way to store your Instant Pot lid and keep your countertops clean simultaneously, this lid holder is the perfect solution for you. This lid holder conveniently attaches to the inside of your cabinet or the kitchen wall, so you can keep your countertops clear.  

The lid holder comes in two pieces so that you can custom fit the space between for other lids, too. We suggest labeling the holders once they’re mounted so you can remember what lid goes where in the event that you have multiple lids in use.

This option is a great choice if you have a small kitchen since it takes up no counter space or cabinet real estate. This particular lid holder comes in a package of six, so you’ll be able to free up a lot of storage space.

Instant Pot Stand

This Instant Pot stand is the perfect way to store your IP while freeing up valuable counter space in your kitchen. You can either use this stand for a single or for two IPs. This stand will fit 6 quart and 8-quart models.

This is one of those great home accessories that serves as both stylish and functional. You can keep your IP on the stand, but you can also use it for fun accessories. There are several models out there similar to this one, but we like the sturdiness and durability of this model.

Instant Pot Cover

An Instant Pot cover is a great storage solution, no matter where you’re keeping your IP. This is also an essential Instant Pot accessory if you ever plan on making something in your Instant Pot and then taking it elsewhere, like to a party or gathering. Or even making something inside your home and serving it outside. Instant Pots are heavy and awkward to carry, so a case like this makes them much easier to transport.

Wrapping Up

Choosing the right storage option can be challenging. If you’re not sure where to start, start with the basics and use what you have in your kitchen. You can store your Instant Pot on a kitchen island, in a cupboard, or on a countertop.

As long as it’s clean and out of the way, you’ve chosen the right storage solution. Now that you know what types of storage options are out there, you can start experimenting with different ways to store your Instant Pot.
