The whole unit is thick and sturdy, and nothing like the silicon vegetable steamer I've previously tried to use as a pan lifter. It's also a nice height. Not too tall, not too short.
The handles stick out on my 6Qt LUX making it easily grabbable -- and I was easily able to bend them out of the way to be able to put the lid on. (Since an 8Qt is taller, I'm assuming no bending-out-of-the-way is required for that larger model.)

Yes, I'm in the Cult of Instapot. I want all the Instapot Things. However, not this one.
Initially, it comes out of the box misshapen (see images), which may not be a big issue in the long run. I am partial to anything I pay full price for being pristine out-of-the-box, though, so I was unamused. I assumed that once filled with batter it would retain its proper shape. It didn't. Again, refer to the images below.
Also, it smells funky, which isn't evident in the images below. I've had my IP long enough to know that they do take on odor after a while. The silicone sealing ring does get strange, and I can imagine the silicone ring of this pan will eventually, as well.
Also, when placing the pan on the included IP trivet into inner pot (I have a IP 6q DUO), the pan doesn't sit level. One of the plusses IP enthusiasts have noted about this pan vs a traditional spring form pan is that trad pans have a bulky buckle that takes away from being able to use a slightly wider circumference pan. True, the slim clamp that holds the silicone allows for more potential space,though it still doesn't sit level with the included trivet (image below). Maybe it does with other trivets I've seen people use. I'm going with the one that's part of the original IP setup.
Again, that's aesthetics. Maybe it's not a big concern to others. I am already insecure about the retention of spring form pans to begin with, I'm not thrilled about having to work with one lopsided, from the beginning. What are we up to? Strike 4?
So, I leave it as level as I can, set it to cook according to the recipe (which wasn't good either), and the final, set result is pictured below. I couldn't really tell whether the cake was level, honestly, though you can see how the pan looks disassembled, below. To note, it wasn't a hardship to get the clamp off, though it didn't slip easily. Ultimately, I don't want it to move easily, or that would spell disaster for my recipe. But I have some problems with my hands that mean things do have to be relatively easy to work with, or it's just no-go. With a good bit of effort the clamp came off.
When I washed the pan and attempted to put it back together, my conclusion that it wouldn't work out for me became clearer. I wish I had examined exactly how firmly the silicone ring was joined when I first took the pan out of the box. I washed it, though I didn't disassemble it. Upon fitting it all back together, the ring didn't meet. I forced it as hard as I could. The silicone would meet, clamp, then pull slightly apart. The result was a small gap, which is pictured below.
The real question was would that gap leak in use, and the answer to that is evident in my included video: Yes, it leaked. I took it apart and fitted it back together snugly, and still, the gap. Granted, a thick batter may not leak, despite that water did. Still, if any spring form pan is worth its asking price, it shouldn't leak at all, not even a spiffy new high tech IP one. Especially a spiffy new High Tech IP one.
So, I'm returning this pan. Maybe the glitches I observe in it right off are minor--that it's warped out of the box, doesn't sit level on the stock IP trivet, wrangles apart with effort, doesn't snugly fit back together. However, I enter into relationships with all kitchen products with longevity in mind. I just don't see this pan lasting long. I don't see it holding up to multiple functions and longterm use.I am returning mine, and staying on the market for something more sturdy, easy to work with, leak-proof, and potentially with a lifetime commitment in mind.
The "connector" thingie takes some practice, and is really tight (as it probably should be). The loaf pan has really small "nubby bit", so I am having difficulty getting enough leverage to easily slide off the connector, and do have some concerns about how much of a mess it would make to attempt to remove it while it's full of food.
There is a faint odor upon unpacking. After air drying all night, there is still a faint odor if I stuff my nose right up against it -- but not from a distance.
The glass base really is just a piece of polished-edge glass. Nothing fancy. But simplicity is the key to there being no nasty nooks and crannies for food bits to get stuck. I gave it a preliminary hand wash and everything was reachable by sponge, without requiring a special brush, or a toothpick.
However it took some work to get it stretched back around the glass base without a gap where the two ends come together. Even when I got the connector on, there was still a bit of a gap where food/batter could go (but not to escape). But I am assuming a tight fit is better than a loose fit. It's just going to take some more practice fully disassembling / reassembling it to figure out the secret.
Conclusion: I don't recommend jumping in with both feet and cooking something in it right away without a good amount of time practicing fully taking it apart and putting it together. But it does show promise once a certain level of familiarity is achieved.
