Instant Pot Replacement Parts
Whether you bought your Instant Pot years ago, or are new to the pothead world, it’s inevitable that you’ll have to buy replacement parts at some point. And, the great news is that almost everything you would need can be found on The Instant Pot Website, Amazon, or retail stores that sell Instant Pots. For this post, I will be listing the replacement parts found on Amazon and the Instant Pot website.
Below, is a list of every single part of your Instant Pot that is replaceable. Keep in mind that some Instant Pot replacement parts are model-specific, so make sure that when you purchase replacement parts that you are choosing the right one to fit your specific Instant Pot.
1. Sealing Rings
Sealing rings are an important component of your Instant Pot. If they are cracked, stretched or broken, your Instant Pot will not come to pressure. The Instant Pot Sealing Rings require regular replacement and upkeep to keep your pressure cooker working properly. Instant Pot recommends replacing every 6 to 12 months. You can purchase these Instant Pot replacement parts on Amazon:
2. Inner Pot
If the stainless steel inner cooking pot has been dented, damaged or lost, you can order a new one through multiple retailers. However, if it just has some tough to remove stains, use baking soda, vinegar, and a non-abrasive cloth to remove the stains. If you want an easier to clean inner pot, I recommend the ceramic non-stick inner pot (choose the right size, not compatible with the Instant Pot Air Fryer Lid). You can purchase these Instant Pot replacement parts on Amazon:
3. Steam Release Handle
The steam release vents the steam from your Instant Pot when you do a quick release. It also keeps the pressure in when it’s in the sealed position. Different models require a different type of steam release handle, so pay attention to which model you are purchasing it for. Here are the most common steam release handle on Amazon:
4. Instant Pot Lid
If you damage your lid or it just stops working, you don’t have to buy a whole new Instant Pot. Instead, you can buy replacement lids for the Ultra, Duo, Duo-Plus, Viva, Nova, Plus, and Smart Bluetooth models. Additionally, you may want to add a tempered glass lid (choose the right size) to your cart to easily use your slow cooker feature. However, to purchase a replacement lid, you will need to purchase them through the Instant Pot website.
5. The Power Cord
The Instant Pot power cord is detachable, so it can easily get lost or misplaced. Damage or water can also make the power cord stop working. The great thing about the power cord is that the replacement on Amazon is compatible with most Instant Pot models including the Duo, Duo Nova, Duo SV, Duo Plus, Duo gourmet, Ultra, and Smart WiFi models.
6. Anti Block Shield
The anti block shield is the small cap on the inside of your lid that keeps food from getting into your steam release valve. If it’s ever lost or broken, you can easily buy a replacement part on Amazon. The replacement on Amazon is compatible with most models including Duo models, Lux models, and Ultra models.
7. Condensation Collector
The condensation cup goes on the side of the Instant Pot. It is one of the easiest pieces to lose track of. The replacement condensation cup on Amazon is compatible with the Duo models, Lux models, and Ultra.
8. Float Valve
The float valve is the small pin, on the lid, that goes up when there’s pressure in the pot, and down when all the pressure has been released. It can be removed for cleaning, but is so small and easy to lose. You can easily buy replacement float valves for your model on Amazon.
- 8 Quart Lux, Duo, Duo 8 Float Valve
- Duo, Duo Plus, Ultra, Lux Float Valve (check sizes)
- Universal Float Valve (check compatibility)
9. Instant Pot Base
Sometimes you may need to replace the whole Instant Pot base. For example, if you set it on the stove and accidentally turned the burners on. There is a separate base for almost every model, but they don’t come with an inner pot, power cord, condensation cup, or accessories. However, they are rarely in stock and can only be bought through The Instant Pot Website. If you need a new base, I would recommend just getting a whole new Instant Pot.
Accessories can be bought from the Instant Pot Website, or you can buy them on Amazon. If you lost or broke your trivet, you can buy that individually.
