I have 2 mini instantpots. Bought this item based on rave reviews. I am seriously beginning to distrust Amazon feed back and I seriously question how was it able to get so many positive reviews when no one in my family was able to make it work. The lead is a very nice quaility; thick silicon. The issue - it does NOT fully fit and seal the insert of the instant pot it is meant for. It leaves the gap at one side as it cannot be fully stretched to cover the entire insert. We attempted it hot, cold, stretching it - nothing made it work. I ended up retrofitting one of my old pot leads to use as cover for my insert when I put it in the fridge. I would have returned it right away, but seeing so many positive reivews I kept thinking that this is an operator error and kept trying different ways to softern it up and stretch it. At this point I am not sure it is in returnable condition. Please safe yourself from this frustration and do not buy this lead. Look for an alternative or perhaps the lead from one of your smaller pots.
