You love your Ninja Foodi. How could you not? It cooks delicious food in a snap. But this must-have pressure cooker can get even better with accessories. From cake pans to covers, there are a lot of options to enhance this fantastic food-prepping machine. While the standard Ninja Foodi accessories are pretty capable, there are also other gadgets and gizmos you need in your kitchen that can take your pressure cooker to the next level. We've rounded up a selection of items that will make all the difference.
Fat Daddio's Round Cake Pan (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
Clever mitts keep hands safe from heat
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 (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
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.
Krumbs Kitchen Chef's Collection Silicone Tongs (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
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 (opens in new tab)
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.
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 (opens in new tab), is perfect for any baker with its easy removal both from the Foodie and from the pan! The OXO Good Grips Cake Tester (opens in new tab) 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 (opens in new tab) 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!
