Bake A Cheesecake with your Electric Pressure Cooker
The electric pressure cooker makes some of the yummiest and easiest cheesecakes. Yes, that’s right. You can sort of bake in your pressure cooker. You’ll need a spring form that fits inside your instant pot, a rack for the baking pan to sit in, and of course a delicious cheesecake recipe.
A quick search will bring up an almost endless supply of yummy recipes to try. Pick one and start stirring your pot. Before long you’ll be making one of your favorite indulgent desserts in the pressure cooker. This is perfect for when you want to impress your guests or bring something unusual to the office potluck.
Important Accessories Needed to Make a Cheesecake:
You’ll need tongs for pulling the spring foam pan out of the electric pressure cooker. I like these because they have so many uses!
This is my absolute favorite cheesecake mix!
Can Some Jam
Traditional pressure cookers are great for canning all sorts of fruits and vegetables. While the electric pressure cooker wasn’t designed with canning and food preservation in mind, you can do a little small batch canning in it.
This is perfect if you want to turn some of those ripe fruits from the local farmers market into some artisan jam. Use the pressure cooker to preserve and pressure seal your jars. Since you’re processing in small batches, you can try out various different and fun recipes and end up with some delicious jams and preserves to enjoy throughout the year.

This set gives you all of those little accessories you need for canning.
These are my favorite jars to use when canning jams and jellies. The nice thing is, if you need a last minute gift for a neighbor or friend, simply tie a bow and it makes the perfect homemade treat to give.
Make Homemade Vanilla Extract
Do you use vanilla extract in your cooking and baking? I go through quite a bit, particularly during the holiday season. There’s nothing quite like real vanilla extract, but let’s be honest, it’s outrageously pricey. Why not make your own homemade vanilla extract in your pressure cooker? That’s right… you can make your own homemade version using real vanilla beans and vodka or other high spirit. Not only is it some of the best tasting extract you’ll ever use, it’s also a wonderful gift to give to loved ones.
First you definitely need vanilla beans…seriously, once you taste homemade vanilla, you’ll never go back to store bought!
Vodka or really any clear liquor will do. The liquor will dissipate but the vanilla flavor will be infused.
And, bottles for bottling your extract!
Other electric pressure cooker tools and accessories I recommend:
This is like a total completer set…
Replacement gaskets are a must! They can tear during washing and they absorb odors from strong spices but you can’t use your pressure cooker without them…so it’s always good to have a spare!
An electric pressure cooker steam valve is a good idea if you need to direct the steam elsewhere than straight up. I just caution you to use EXTREME caution when using this nifty little valve because you don’t want to point it in the direction of someone’s face or where a hand might be.
