This kid doesn’t fit my 8 qt pots correctly. I have the pot that came with the instant pot and it fits it fairly well not snug but not tight. It would not keep the smell enclosed if I put it in fridge but at least it does fairly well seal it. My non stick instant pot the lid doesn’t even come close to sealing it. It is so loose you can’t even pick the pot up by the top you must be extremely careful as it is nowhere close to sealed. I’m going to try a generic lid to see if it fits better. I didn’t try it before time to send back.
