As our valued supporters, we would like to bring to your attention our concerns regarding the sale of unapproved and unauthorized sealing rings that are being marketed as a suitable replacement for your Instant Pot’s original sealing ring. These rings are being sold on Amazon by certain unauthorized third party vendors, such as “Instant Perrrt!”, “Impresa Products”, “CYLAPEX” and “Noosa Life.”
Instant Pot has not authorized these entities or any other third party to manufacture and/or sell Instant Pot accessories or replacement parts. We feel it is important to bring this to the attention of our community, as there may be serious safety concerns associated with using an untested sealing ring on Instant Pot products.
Our sealing ring is an integral part of the Instant Pot safety features. Our rings have been designed, engineered, and built with the optimal material to achieve the hardness and strength required to withstand high-pressure force during electric pressure-cooking. Our rings have passed UL, FDA, and LFGB tests for safety, including food safety.
In contrast, the unapproved and unauthorized rings were not manufactured, tested or certified by or for Instant Pot and we do not know if they meet our established standards. The use of third party sealing rings may have unexpected effects on your product, and would void the Instant Pot warranty.
In the near future, to better serve our customers, we will be launching colored sealing rings to assist you when preparing different food groups. In the interim, our rings can be purchased online at Amazon or through the Instant Pot web site:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support and loyalty to the Instant Pot brand. We look forward to continuing to provide you with the right tools for your active lifestyle.
