If you have an 8-quart Instant Pot, you won't have to manipulate the pot as much.
If the manufacturer reviews the comments on Amazon, he should realize that a slight variation in the product design, eliminating the need for customer jury-rigging, could justify a slightly higher price, yet result in sold-out inventories!
Okay, all that said, I did buy this for my instant pot, however I read the reviews and knew what I was getting. I knew I'd need to bend or remove the handles. That was a challenge, and required two people and three adjustable wrenches, but it now sits beautifully in my 8-quart pot. I don't know the dimensions of the 6-quart, so I don't know whether it would work in one.
I'm going to mostly be using this for making hard-cooked eggs, not veggies etc., so cleaning it won't be a big issue for me. However, as with any mesh strainer, it may be tricky to clean food that gets caught in the mesh. That's the nature of mesh strainers, so it would be silly to downrate it for that.
I've attached a photo of our metalsmithing. I'm holding two adjustable wrenches clamped tight on the welds holding the handle (a locking wrench would have worked better but we didn't have any). My husband is using another adjustable wrench to bend the handle.
It is a nice sturdy strainer. It came misshaped, partially compressed so that one side was much taller than the other. But it was easy to straighten out. I wish I bought two as I see that it is currently unavailable. The mesh is fine enough to hold quinoa without letting too many grains go through, though some do go through and some do get stuck in the holes. I have not found a great way to rinse that grain!
