Things I Love: Oxo Pressure Cooker Baking Sling

OXO Pressure Cooker Baking Sling

Oxo’s silicone Pressure Cooker Bakeware Sling is an excellent add-on for my Instant Pot. It’s taken the place of Instant Pot’s Silicone Steam Rack in my cabinet, which itself was my favorite replacement for the wire rack that comes with the Instant Pot. (It’s silicone racks all the way down.)

Oxo’s sling is sturdy and substantial, with the hex pattern in the base making a solid rack out of flexible silicone. It’s also an ideal fit in the 6 quart Instant Pot, and wide enough to comfortably hold my favorite Nordic Ware springform pan for Instant Pot Cheesecake. And, once again, Oxo design comes through with an awesome touch: the handles make themselves into a solid sling, using a tab on one handle and a hole in the other. Fold the handles over, press them together, and voila – the handles stick together, making an easy-to-lift sling.

If you use the rack in your Instant Pot, you should take a serious look at this rack as a replacement. It’s much nicer than the one that comes with the pot. And, if you enjoy Instant Pot Cheesecakes, you need this Oxo baking sling – it’s so much better than making aluminum foil slings to lift the cheesecake in and out of the pot.

Hi! I’m Mike Vrobel. I’m a dad and an enthusiastic home cook; an indie cookbook author and food blogger with a day job, a patient spouse, and three kids who would rather have hamburgers for dinner.


  1. Eunice says

    I have a cake pan that’s 4 inch in height and 7 inch in diameter. Will the handles on this sling be long enough for this tall cake pan?

    • I think so. I have a 7” by 3” springform pan, and it looks like there is enough clearance for at least another inch.

  2. This sounds very useful, Mike. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. Will the unit and the straps accommodate 2 stacked springform pans or molds?

    • I don’t know – I have not tried it. I worry stacked pans will interfere with the cooking. Let me know how it goes if you try it.

  3. Can’t tell for sure, Mike – perhaps you can respond, but this looks like it would be good for making hard-boiled eggs. The holes appear large enough that one could place an egg on its end in one of them.
