Fat Daddio's Round Cake Pan

Anodized aluminum pan for creating the best baked goods

Cake pans come in use for so much more than just cakes. This particular product from well-respected brand Fat Daddio's fits perfectly into both the 6.5 and 8-quart Foodi pressure cookers. The base slides out for easy removal of baked products.  Its anodized-aluminum construction means it both heats up and cools down quickly -- perfect for recipes where timing precision is essential.

Fred & Friends Pot Pinchers

Defend your digits from pressure cooker heat with these pinchers. The humorous design belies their usefulness. They are made of heat-resistant silicone that will stop you from getting fiery fingers and thumbs when you're moving or removing things from your Foodi.

Debbiedoo's Pressure Cooker Cover

Cloak your cooker with this fun printed cover

Don't get us wrong; we love our Ninja Foodis. However, their large footprint and professional catering look don't fit our ideal design aesthetic. You can get dust covers that are perfectly sized to conceal your pressure cooker. This option is custom made to fit both sizes of Ninja Foodi. Plus, it offers a snazzy black and grey kitchen utensil design and has a zippered top cover panel to store the lid.

OXO Silicone Pressure Cooker Steamer

Useful handled steamer in durable silicone

We see your stainless steel steamers and your stackable bamboo, and raise you this silicone option from OXO. Designed for use in pressure cookers, this has flexible pleats to fit into any size space. It won't scratch your cooker's precious innards and rolls up for compact storage. 

Strong Tongs

Krumbs Kitchen Chef's Collection Silicone Tongs

Essential tongs made for high temperatures

Every home chef needs a decent pair of kitchen tongs in their arsenal of cooking tools. We love Krumbs' offering as they can withstand temperatures of up to 375 degrees, boast BPA-free, and FDA-approved materials. They are also odor and stain-resistant and will happily take a spin in the dishwasher. Add in the fact they come in a range of bold, vibrant colors and we're sold.

Goldlion Steam Diverter Pressure Release Valve

Steam venter with a little personality

Love pressure cooking but hate the steam issues? We feel you. This cute little guy has four slot options that fit the Ninja Foodi's pressure cooker valve. You can vent the steam in multiple directions, and well away from your kitchen cabinets, avoiding any potential warping problems.

OXO Silicone Pressure Cooker Sling

Silicone sling for holding hot bakeware

You may have the tongs and pot pinchers, but you can't beat a silicone sling to remove smaller items from your Ninja Foodi safely. This durable device is made from food-safe and heat-resistant material. It can be used to elevate bakeware above water, and it's dishwasher safe.

Ninja Foodi Skewer Stand

Skewer savory meats and more

If you're lucky enough to own the 8-quart Ninja Foodi, then you deserve to treat yourself to this accessory. In the larger capacity model, you can use this to cook 15 skewer's worth of meat, seafood, or delicious veggies. It's a handy way of getting that chargrilled flavor into your meal without having to bust out the actual grill.

Ninja Foodi Cookbook

Recipes for the pressure cooking novice

Finally, you've got all the kit; you just need some inspiration as to what to cook. There are two official Ninja cookbooks. The "Ninja Foodi Complete Cookbook for Beginners" offers around 70 recipes that will get you started with your pressure cooker. On the other hand, the "Ninja Foodi One-Pot Cookbook" gives you over one hundred fab ways to use your multicooker.

Culinary cool 

You can elevate your pressure cooking experience by adding some accessories. Whether you need some protective gear or dish-specific add-ons, there are gadgets to make pressure cooking even easier.

Our favorite, the Fat Daddio's Cake Pan, is perfect for any baker with its easy removal both from the Foodie and from the pan! The OXO Good Grips Cake Tester seems simple, but having a proper tool, rather than say just using a toothpick, will make a difference.

When it comes to safety, the OXO Silicone Pressure Cooker Sling will more than justify the cost. Made from food-safe, heat-resistant materials, it will keep your cooking and baking experience pleasant. Everything on this list will inspire you. So, take your pick and bon appetit!
